Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band – Steve Lukather, Colin Hay, Warren Ham, Gregg Bissonette, Hamish Stuart and Edgar Winter – have postponed 12 upcoming shows after two members contracted COVID-19. The ensemble shared the news in a press release, alerting fans that they would step away from the stage halfway through their current tour and push the postponed dates till September.
The backbeat behind The Fab Four offered, “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.”
On Tuesday, June 7, Starr told the audience during their second night at the famed Beacon Theatre that Winter had tested positive for COVID-19. Then, yesterday the band announced their second member, Lukather, had come down with the virus, ultimately coaxing the seven-piece to push the remaining 12 dates to the fall.
While specific dates have not been set, the band has shared a revised itinerary below.
