Ringo Starr kicks off a second season of the PBS series ‘Live From the Artists Den‘ with a performance that will be shown the week of his 70th birthday.

The PBS series captures artists in intimate, unusual settings.

The former Beatles’ concert will air the week of July 5 at different times in different markets, PBS said Monday. Starr performs with Ben Harper and Harper’s band in a show taped at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Starr turns 70 on July 7.

A week later, Tori Amos is seen performing in front of 100 fans in the Veteran’s Room of New York’s Park Avenue Armory.

David Gray, Corinne Bailey Rae, the Black Crowes, Dierks Bentley and the Drive-By Truckers are also lined up for the second season.
