LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Former Beatle Ringo Starr has been forced to cancel the remaining dates of his North American tour after a second COVID diagnosis. The surprise announcement came just one day after Starr and his band got back on the road following his earlier COVID diagnosis this month.

The 82-year-old legend took to social media on Thursday (October 13), saying, “I’m sure you’ll be as surprised as I was I tested positive again for Covid the rest of the tour is off I send you peace and love – Ringo.”

Starr postponed several tour dates on October 3 after his first positive test. Edgar Winter and Steve Lukather, members of the All Starr Band, tested positive for COVID in June, forcing the rescheduling of a dozen shows which had previously been scheduled for 2020.
