The top of the Beatles Fridays event webpage operated by The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame makes it clear: “If you’re a Beatles fan, this day is for you!”
With two-time inductee Ringo Starr celebrating his 83rd birthday on July 7, this week’s Beatles Friday has an added dash of specialness to it.

What Can Fans Expect
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame will host its The Beatles: Get Back to Let It Be exhibit along with a showing-slash-photo-op of Ringo’s Peace sculpture. Plus, fans will get to experience a live taping of the “Rolling Stone Music Now” podcast, and take part in the Rock Hall’s video compilation for Ringo’s #PeaceAndLove Birthday bash. Hint: This would be the perfect time to wish a Happy Birthday directly to Ringo!
