Ringo meets contest winners in Israel
This past weekend some Ringo fans had the chance of a lifetime when they won a local contest to meet Sir Ringo himself backstage before the first Tel Aviv concert. One of the lucky winners was Daniel, who was able to get a photograph taken with Ringo along with his lovely lady and two other contest winners (The little boy giving a peace sign in a Beatles t-shirt is adorable!).
There was a little disappointment that Ringo would not sign any autographs or make himself available to fans while staying in the country. While Ringo did flash a quick peace sign to a small group of fans that were calling his name outside of the venue, he was not seen anywhere else before or after the concerts.
I asked Daniel if he enjoyed the concerts (he went to both of them) and he said, "Yes, very much. On stage he is the most sweet guy and sweet to the fans."
As Ringo continues to tour around the world this summer and into the fall, let me know if you have any stories or photos to share!
