Former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr has been forced to postpone the remainder of his North American summer tour after two people in his All-Starr Band tested positive for Covid-19.

The band's keyboard player Edgar Winter and guitarist Steve Lukather tested positive for Covid. On his website, Starr revealed that the 12 concerts left on his North American trek will be pushed to September 2022.

"We are so sorry to let the fans down," Starr said in a statement. "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."

The All-Starr Band also consists of Colin Hay, Warren Ham, Gregg Bissonette and Hamish Stuart. The band were almost halfway through the 22-show run, which kicked off May 27 from Casino Rama in Ontario.
