RINGO STARR AND HIS ALL STARR BAND ANNOUNCE THAT TWO BAND MEMBERS HAVE TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID
THEIR CONCERT AT THE PROVIDENCE PERFORMING ARTS CENTER ON SUNDAY, JUNE 12, 2022 AT 7:30PM, ALONG WITH 11 OTHER REMAINING DATES, HAS BEEN POSTPONED
REMAINING SHOWS RESCHEDULED FOR SEPTEMBER 2022
Providence, RI – Today Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band – Steve Lukather, Colin Hay, Warren Ham, Gregg Bissonette, Hamish Stuart and Edgar Winter – announced that two members have tested positive for Covid. Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band’s concert on Sunday, June 12, 2022 at 7:30P at the Providence Performing Arts Center (PPAC) in Providence, RI has been postponed to September 2022. A new performance date and time will be announced.
Current ticketholders do not need to take any further action at this time. PPAC anticipates a new date for September and will announce as soon as possible. All tickets from June 12, 2022 will be honored for the new date.
These shows were initially planned for 2020, and Ringo and the All Starr Band were eager to finally get back out on the road. Almost halfway through the 22 show run, which kicked off May 27 from Casino Rama in Ontario, Ringo let audiences know on Tuesday June 7, during the second of three sold out shows at New York’s Beacon theater, that Edgar Winter had Covid, but the All Starrs would play on. However today Steve Lukather has also tested positive for Covid, forcing the group to reschedule the remaining 12 dates, and adding them to the September tour.
“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,” said Ringo.
In the meantime, friends and fans from around the world will join Ringo on July 7, for his annual Peace and Love birthday celebration, where he invites everyone everywhere to say, post or even just think Peace and Love at Noon their local time. Starting in Australia, New Zealand and Asia and ending in Hawaii, people help Ringo wrap the Earth in a wave of peace and love. Fans are already organizing local events around the world, and details and live streams from the events will soon be available on Ringo’s Facebook page.
