Today is Ringo Starr's 78th birthday.

On July 7, 2008, Ringo Starr joined fans, friends and family on the streets in front of Hard Rock Cafe Chicago to celebrate his birthday with a simple call to action: Inviting everyone everywhere to say, post #peaceandlove or even think “Peace & Love” at noon, their local time. Ten years later, Ringo’s dream of generating a wave of Peace & Love that spans the planet on July 7 starting at noon in New Zealand and ending at noon in Hawaii continues to unfold. Last year saw fans in over 23 countries join the movement – from New Zealand to Antarctica, Latin America to Asia, Hawaii and more.

Sir Ringo Starr announced that this year he will return to Hard Rock Cafe, celebrating his birthday and joining fans in Nice France, where Ringo will be while on tour with his All Starr Band. In keeping with the international support the event has seen, Hard Rock Cafe will play a video message from Ringo in restaurants around the world just before Noon, inviting patrons and fans to join Ringo and generate "Peace & Love".

In addition to Hard Rock, this year’s event is being sponsored by The David Lynch Foundation, which promotes world peace every day by teaching meditation to at risk people all over the planet. Starr is on tour in Europe and will tour this fall in the United States.
