Join Ringo in generating a wave of #PeaceandLove that moves over the planet on July 7, starting at noon in New Zealand and ending at noon in Hawaii.
“I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday, or a better gift I could ask for, than Peace & Love. How great that this idea keeps growing and spreading. Thanks to everyone supporting it. Peace & Love, Ringo.”
The Peace & Love birthday celebration was a concept born in 2008 when Ringo was asked in an interview “what would you like for your birthday?” He replied: “more Peace & Love.” This marked the beginning of a yearly tradition where Ringo has hosted events all over the world, including NYC’s Times Square and Chicago, to Hamburg, Germany and Capitol Records in L.A.
This annual celebration of ‘Peace & Love’ continues to expand every year, embraced by people all over the world. It has also been supported by sponsors, who help spread the message and make these events possible. This year they include Sirius XM (home of The Beatles Channel), Modern Drummer and The David Lynch Foundation.
