Ringo Starr wants a very special 70th birthday this year – he wants the world to unite for world peace.
As a special show of solidarity, the former Beatle wants his fans all around the world to stop what they are doing and give the V-shaped peace sign at midday on July 7.
“We have big plans to do an all star tour this summer,” he said. “We’ll be in New York on July 7, which is my birthday and we’re going to celebrate. No matter what state you’re in, at noon wherever you are I’d like you to gesture peace and love.”
Starr will play the New York Radio City Music Hall later that night.
