Ringo Starr has been forced to postpone his remaining tour dates after two members of his All-Starr Band tested positive for COVID.

In a statement shared to Starr’s website and social media channels, “Almost halfway through the 22-show run, which kicked off May 27 from Casino Rama in Ontario, Ringo let audiences know on Tuesday, June 7, during the second of three sold-out shows at New York’s Beacon theater, that Edgar Winter had Covid, but the All Starrs would play on. However today (June 11), Steve Lukather has also tested positive for Covid, forcing the group to reschedule the remaining 12 dates, and adding them to the September tour.”

Starr said in his own statement, “We are so sorry to let the fans down. It’s been wonderful to be back out on the road and we have been having such a great time playing for you all. But as we all know, Covid is still here and despite being careful these things happen. I want to thank the fans for their patience, I send you all peace and love, and we can’t wait to be back in the Fall.”
