LOS ANGELES, July 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AXS TV celebrates the life and
legacy of Ringo Starr, with the once-in-a-lifetime tribute concert "Ringo
Starr: A Lifetime of Peace and Love," on Sunday, July 13, at 8 p.m. ET. The
David Lynch Foundation hosts the benefit event, presenting Starr with the
Lifetime of Peace and Love Award for his dedication to spreading peace and
love throughout the world as a pioneer of transcendental meditation—a method
for self-development, stress reduction, and relaxation, that Starr famously
began practicing during the Beatles' trip to India in 1968.

Road Don't Go"; The Head and the Heart doing the timeless classic "Octopuses
Garden"; and kicking it all off Giles McWilliams from Ark Life with "Can't Do
it Wrong."

GRAMMY®-winner Don Was on bass; Benmont Tench (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers)
on keyboards; iconic axemen Peter Frampton and Steve Lukather (Toto) on
guitars;and Kenny Arnoff (John Mellencamp) on drums.

The guest of honor himself, Ringo Starr, closes out the evening with a
spectacular three song set, "Photograph" and "Boys," and then for the finale,
inviting all of the night's performers—along with members of the star studded
audience including Eric Burdon, Gary Wright, Gregg Bissonette, Jeff Lynne,
Colin Hay, Richard Page, Sheila E., Edgar Winter, and comedian Jim Carrey—back
on stage to join in an epic sing-along of "With a Little Help from My
Friends." To view a clip of "With a Little Help from My Friends," click here:

The David Lynch Foundation was founded in 2005, as a means of providing
transcendental meditation training to adults and children throughout the
world. Since that time, the foundation has treated tens of thousands of
people, with special programs developed for underprivileged students,
survivors of domestic violence, and veterans suffering from post-traumatic
stress. The foundation launched the Ringo Starr Peaceand Love Fund in January
of 2014.

"Ringo Starr is one of the true unsung heroes of rock n' roll," said AXS TV
founder Mark Cuban. "The wide-reaching impact he's had on the industry—both as
an artist and a humanitarian—is on full display here, as evidenced by the
variety of high-level performers that came out to pay tribute to his legacy.
This is absolutely one of the most unique events you will see this year, and
AXS TV is proud to be a part of it."
