Ringo Starr Tour Postponed After Two All-Starrs Catch COVID

Ringo Starr’s All-Starr Band was forced to postpone the remaining 12 dates of its current North American tour after members Steve Lukather and Edgar Winter tested positive for COVID.

Those dates will be rescheduled around previously announced shows later in the year, although the new schedule hasn’t yet been confirmed. The affected dates, plus the previously announced fall dates, can be seen below.

“We are so sorry to let the fans down,” Starr said in a statement. “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.”

The 15th All-Starr tour includes the addition of the Beatles song “Octopus’s Garden,” which they’d never played before. The track appeared alongside material from each band member’s catalog, including Toto’s “Rosanna” and “Africa,” plus Winter’s “Free Ride” and “Frankenstein.”
