Ringo Starr is re-tooling his All-Starr Band for a recently announced tour of Europe and Israel. Former Men at Work frontman Colin Hay and 10cc co-founder Graham Gouldman will join the band for the summer trek, which kicks off on June 5 in Paris, France.

Hay has previous experience with the All-Starr Band, having performed as part of the lineup in 2008. Gouldman, who in addition to co-authoring several 10cc hits, wrote such British Invasion classics as the Hollies’ “Bus Stop” and the Yardbirds’ “For Your Love,” is joining the All-Starrs for the first time.

Maintaining their current roles in the group are Toto’s Steve Lukather and Santana/Journey veteran Gregg Rolie, along with Warren Ham and Gregg Bissonette. Starr’s latest studio album, Give More Love, was released in September. The former Beatle recently wrapped up a late fall tour of the U.S.
