Ringo Starr’s All Starr Band postpones remainder of current tour after two members contract COVID-19 – Everett Post
Ringo Star and his All Starr Bands have postponed the remainder of their current North American tour after two band members tested positive for COVID-19 in the past few days.
On Tuesday, Ringo announced that Edgar Winter had contracted the virus and would be absent from some shows, but after toto guitarist Steve Lukather subsequently also tested positive for COVID-19, the decision was made to postpone the remainder of the current trek until September, before the start of the band’s previously announced fall tour.
Twelve shows will be rescheduled, ranging from a concert that was scheduled to take place tonight in Easton, Pennsylvania to a June 26 concert in Clearwater, Florida.
Ringo and the All Starr Band’s Rematch 2022 tour is traced from a Sept. 23 show in Bridgeport, Connecticut, to an Oct. 19-20 booth in Mexico City.
“We are so sorry to let the fans down,” Ringo says. “It was wonderful to be back on the road and we had such a great time playing for you all. But as we all know Covid is still around and despite being careful these things happen. I want to thank the fans for their patience, sending you all peace and love, and we can’t wait to be back in the fall.
Meanwhile, as he has done for many years, Starr is asking fans around the world to celebrate his birthday with him on July 7 by saying, thinking or posting to “Peace and Love” at noon that day- there, wherever they are. Local fan events are already being held around the world, and more details will be shared soon on Starr’s Facebook page.
