Turning Stone Resort Casino in Central New York has announced the launch of its Turning Stone "Hands of Fame" exhibit, with an inaugural contribution from rock and roll legend Ringo Starr, who performed at the resort's Event Center last week and celebrated his 74th birthday Monday.
"Hands of Fame" will memorialize a number of world-class musicians, performers and celebrities who appear at the resort. The handprints of Beatles drummer Starr and other luminaries featured in Turning Stone's exhibit will be displayed at the resort's The GIG at Exit 33, a 51,000-square-foot live entertainment venue featuring ideal acoustics, vintage furnishings and iconic pop culture imagery.
One of the pre-eminent live music venues in all of Central New York, The GIG's unique and appealing vibe attracts top local and regional bands with live performances every weekend.
"Turning Stone is incredibly excited and honored to launch our 'Hands of Fame' display with the handprints of beloved rock and roll hero Ringo Starr," said Oneida Indian Nation representative Ray Halbritter. "This distinctive new exhibit in The GIG will celebrate the impressive and diverse roster of A-list stars that appear throughout the year at Turning Stone. We look forward to seeing the collection grow and expand alongside Turning Stone Resort Casino for many years to come."
