Prominent musician and former member of The Beatles, Ringo Starr, is currently in the midst of a multi-stop tour across North America alongside his All Starr Band. The group has been playing in a variety of venues around the United States, Mexico, and Canada, including auditoriums, entertainment centers, and casino resorts.

Starr’s next couple of shows were slated to be held at the Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo, Michigan. However, as both the casino and Starr’s representatives have announced, the tour dates have been postponed, as Starr has come down with an as-of-yet undisclosed illness.

“Ringo and His All Starr Band (featuring Steve Lukather, Edgar Winter, Colin Hay, Hamish Stuart, Warren Ham and Gregg Bissonette) are very disappointed to announce that they will not be able to play their show at Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo, MI,” the casino wrote in a statement prior to Saturday’s show on Facebook. “Ringo is sick and was hoping he could carry on, hence the late decision, but it has affected his voice so tonight’s show, scheduled to begin in a few hours, is canceled. Ringo does not have Covid. Ringo and the band send Peace and Love to all the fans who came out tonight and hope to see you all soon.”

Ticketholders are advised to hold onto their tickets for when a new tour date is announced. Refunds will also be offered through the affected venues.
