Oh My My: Ringo Starr Tests Positive for COVID, Cancels Six Shows on All Starr Band Tour


Back Off COVID: Ringo Starr announced today he’s tested positive for COVID. Ringo’s All Starr Band has cancelled its next six shows.

What a shame. I just saw Ringo’s show and it was terrific. But it was also outdoors. Ringo said from the stage he was freezing, wearing a couple of North Face jackets Our favorite rock drummer is 82, and even though he looks 52, he’s still human.

Feel better, Ringo!
