Ringo Starr Moves His 2020 All Starr Band Dates to 2021 Because, You Know, It Don’t Come Easy


Ringo Starr — well, just Ringo to us– knows it don’t come easy. He tours every year with his All Starr Band of top notch musicians. But the 2020 tour, which was supposed to begin on May 29th, has been put off for a year.
Ringo’s band includes this stellar line up: Steve Lukather, Colin Hay, Gregg Rolie, Warren Ham, Gregg Bissonette, and Hamish Stuart.
“This is very difficult for me,” said Ringo, “in 30 years I think I’ve only missed 2 or 3 gigs nevermind a whole tour.  But this is how things are for all of us now, I have to stay in just like you have to stay in, and we all know it’s the peace and loving thing we do for each other.  So we have moved the Spring tour to 2021. My fans know I love them, and I love to play for them and I can’t wait to see you all as soon as possible. In the meantime stay safe. Peace and Love to you all.”
In the meantime, we can listen to Ringo’s most recent album. It’s really good.

Here are the rescheduled Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band Spring 2021 Tour Dates, alongside the original:
