Ringo Starr's Drum Set From 1960s Coming to Bloomingdale's
You may not be able to buy love at Bloomingdale's, but you will be able to see the drum set used by Ringo Starr and the Beatles when they played at New York's Shea Stadium in 1965.
The iconic kit, which consists of Ringo's original Ludwig 22-inch bass, is on display right now at Bloomingdale's flagship store on 59th Street and Lexington Avenue in New York City. It is occupying a sacred spot in the men's department off the Third Avenue entrance.
In conjunction with the drums display, the store is celebrating more than 50 years of Beatlemania with an assortment of men's merchandise from brands such as Ben Sherman, Hardy Amies, Lily and Lionel, Ted Baker and others.
If you can't make it to New York, don't worry. The drum set is coming to Los Angeles early next year to Bloomingdale's Century City store.
At the same time, you can stop off at The Grammy Museum near Staples Center to view the exhibit "Ringo: Peace & Love." It features the drum set used during the Beatles' TV appearance on the "Ed Sullivan Show" in 1964 and the drum set used at the Maple Hollywood concert performed on the rooftop of Apple Records headquarters in 1969.
