Ringo Starr & His All Starr Band may have bene less than 100 tickets short of selling out the Fox Theatre in Atlanta but the former Beatle has a long way to go if he wants to catch up to his band mate.

Ringo Starr & His All Starr Band performed at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta on Nov. 11 in front of 4,365 fans (4,425 tickets were allotted). The show, which was promoted by AEG Presents, had gross sales of $340,648, according to data recently compiled by Billboard.

Ringo Starr & His All Starr Band are nearly $2 million short of Paul McCartney‘s recent stop in Georgia. McCartney performed at the Infinite Energy Center in Duluth on July 13 in front of a sold-out crowd of 10,992 fans. The show, which was promoted by AEG Presents and Marshall Arts USA, had gross sales of $2,320,697, according to data previously compiled by Billboard.

According to a 2015 Forbes column citing the British newspaper the Sunday Times’ annual Rich List, McCartney’s net worth is more than $1.1 billion with Starr having a net worth of $276 million.

During a 2016 interview with Atlanta Business Chronicle, Live Nation Atlanta President Peter Conlon, one of the most iconic and revered talent buyers and promoters in city history, said Atlanta is a solid market for contemporary and rock music.

“Rock always has been a good genre here [Atlanta],” he said. “It’s a good rock town….It’s a good market for middle-of-the-road artists; contemporary artists always do well here. It’s a great market for James Taylor, Billy Joel, Paul Simon, Dylan and all of those guys.”
