Ringo Starr has delayed at least two tour dates due to an undisclosed illness.
The former Beatle was due to perform in Michigan on Saturday night, but the venue issued a notice saying the show was canceled hours before he started.
“Ringo and his all-star band (comprising Steve Lukasser, Edgar Winter, Colin Hay, Hamish Stewart, Warren Ham and Greg Bissonette) star) are very disappointed to announce that they will not be able to perform at the Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo, MI,” the casino wrote in a statement on Facebook. “Ringo was ill and wanted him to continue, so the late decision was made, but it affected his voice, so tonight’s show, which was scheduled to start in a few hours, has been canceled. Ringo is Covid-free. Ringo and the band send peace and love to all the fans out tonight, hope to see you soon.”
Concertgoers are advised to keep their tickets for updates on new performance dates or to seek a refund when purchasing.
A show on Sunday night in Minnesota was also postponed, according to a statement from Mystic Lake Casino.
“Ringo was ill and wanted to be able to perform, hence the late notice, but it affected his voice. Ringo is COVID-19 free,” the venue wrote in a statement on Twitter.
Starr and his band are currently on a multi-stop North American tour, most recently on Friday.
Their next show is currently scheduled for Tuesday in Winnipeg, Canada.
