Ringo Starr postpones shows due to illness


Ringo Starr has postponed at least two tour dates due to an undisclosed illness.

The former Beatle was scheduled to perform in Michigan on Saturday night, but the venue announced the show had been canceled just hours before it was due to resume.

“Ringo and His All Starr Band (which includes Steve Lukather, Edgar Winter, Colin Hay, Hamish Stuart, Warren Ham and Gregg Bissonette) are extremely disappointed to announce that they will not be able to play their show at the Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo. MI,” the casino wrote in a statement on Facebook. “Ringo is ill and was hoping he could go on hence the late decision but it has affected his voice so tonight’s show which is due to start in a few hours is cancelled. Ringo does not have Covid. Ringo and the band are sending Peace and Love to all the fans who came tonight and hope to see you all soon.”

Concertgoers have been advised to keep their tickets for updates on a new show date or to request a refund at the time of purchase.

A show scheduled for Sunday night in Minnesota has also been postponed, according to a statement from Mystic Lake Casino.

“Ringo is ill and was hoping to perform hence the late announcement but it has affected his voice. Ringo does not have COVID-19,” the venue wrote in a statement on Twitter.

Starr and his band are currently on a multi-stop North American tour, last performing on Friday.

Her next show is currently scheduled for Tuesday in Winnipeg, Canada.
