The world's most famous drummer must love Arkansas.

Ringo Starr — yes, that Ringo Starr from The Beatles — recently selected the Walmart AMP in Rogers as the second stop for his new Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Tour, and the event that took place Sunday night scored high with the all-ages audience. The left-handed Rock and Roll hall of Fame inductee dished out famous song after famous song throughout the breezy, unusually cool evening, and fans responded with cheers, often-wild applause and recurring shouts of "Ringo!"

And, as always with his All-Starr outings, Starr wasn't alone on the stage. Starr has packed his latest solo ensemble with musical heavy-hitters, who performed hit songs and other popular album tracks from their respective careers. Gregg Rolie, the original lead singer for Santana and Journey, played keyboards and organ and sang at stage right, while Steve Lukather (Toto) and Colin Hay (Men at Work) shared guitar duties over a tight foundation built by acclaimed drummer Gregg Bissonette, 10cc bassist/songwriter Graham Gouldman and percussionist/keyboardist/singer Warren Ham.

The presence of Bissonette, who frequently made funny faces and shared laughs with his band-mates, allowed Starr to often step out in front of his own Ludwig drum set to sing and interact with the group and those ticket-buyers who stood in the first few rows. Starr even played keyboards for the opening bars of the night's rendition of The Beatles' "Don't Pass Me By," a song Starr wrote and sang lead vocals for The Beatles' well-known "White Album" in 1968.

"I didn't know Ringo could play piano at all," said Alma resident Anna Gillespie while watching the concert. "I didn't even realize that the other musicians would be playing so many songs that they did in the past. Gosh, it's all so exciting. I woke up this morning and I just couldn't believe I was going to see a Beatle for the first time."

In addition to highlighting Beatles tracks "Yellow Submarine," "I Wanna Be Your Man," "Boys" and show-closer "With a Little Help From My Friends," the set list included Santana's "Oye Como Va" and "Evil Ways," as well as the Fleetwood Mac/Santana staple "Black Magic Woman" and Starr's own solo songs "Photograph" and "Anthem." Toto's "Africa," "Rosanna" and "Hold the Line" let Lukather shine on lead guitar; Lukather's guitar served as the main riff of the original studio version of Michael Jackson's "Beat It" single. Gouldman handled lead-microphone chores for the 10cc songs "I'm Not in Love," "The Things We Do For Love" and "Dreadlock Holiday," and Hay impressed fans with extraordinary guitar tone and an octave-jumping vocal range for the Men at Work tunes "Down Under," "Who Can It Be Now?" and "Overkill." Hays guitar solo on "Overkill" seemingly summoned the sound of The Kinks, and Hay's voice tackled the high singing parts of "Africa" with ease.

Kindergarten teacher Michelle O'Mara described the concert as a "surreal" experience.

"My mother named me after a Beatles song, 'Michelle,' and The Beatles have been like a soundtrack to my life," she said. "Hearing Ringo sing 'With a Little Help From My Friends' live and up-close was definitely a bucket-list experience."

Adam Coats of Barling found himself continually impressed by the song selection and musicianship, but his 7-year-old son, Cole, possibly was more in awe of the melodic proceedings. The father joked that he set the bar high for his son — the show was Cole's first-ever rock concert.

"Cole is a big Beatles fan, so he was really excited to see Ringo," Coats said. "Cole loved the whole show, and he was especially surprised to hear the band play the non-Beatles hits of the other members. He knows 'Africa' by Toto, and when Graham Gouldman of 10cc started 'I'm Not In Love,' Cole was very happy; he recognized that song from the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' movie soundtrack."
