Ringo Starr - Ringo Starr Staging First Liverpool Gig Since Furore
Ringo Starr is preparing to make peace with fans in his native Liverpool after declaring he missed "nothing" about the English city - he's returning to his hometown for a special show in June (11).
The former Beatles star angered his loyal following in 2008 when he announced during a TV interview that he was content with living in Los Angeles, after moving from his birthplace many years ago.
He was slammed by political leaders and tourism chiefs over the remarks - but Starr is heading back to Liverpool for his first concert since making the comments, according to Britain's Daily Express.
A source tells the publication, "Obviously Ringo is going to be asked about it before he performs there and he's keen to set the record straight.
"It was a joke that got taken out of context and Ringo is going to make it clear publicly that Liverpool remains very special to him."
