Still full of vibrancy at the age of 82, Sir Richard Starkey MBE, known professionally as Ringo Starr of The Beatles, took center stage at Hard Rock Atlantic City; then later in the set switching to his signature Ludwig drums. He greeted the sold-out audience with hands held high, his two fingers spreading his legendary peace sign. This is the first tour for this legendary icon since the pandemic derailed plans in 2020 and again 2021. This tour his All-Starr Band consists of Steve Lukather (Toto), Colin Hay (Men at Work), Gregg Bissonette (Spinal Tap & David Lee Roth), Hamish Stuart (Average White Band, Edgar Winter (Edgar Winter Group), and Warren Ham (Kansas &Toto). Each member of the band is a ‘star’ in their own right.

My name is Steve Cerf and concert photography is my passion. I got into concert photography after seeing a young Freddy Mercury mesmerize his audience at the Philadelphia Civic Center back in 1977. Since then, I have photographed countless live performances of all kinds. Located in Philadelphia, my ability to experience the show and a performer’s essence and “sweat” is what I incorporate into my images.
