Ringo Starr has been forced to halt his tour after testing positive for COVID-19. 

The former Beatles has canceled two concerts of Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band last weekend due to illness. On Monday, October 3, an agent for the star confirmed that the 82-year-old singer had contracted the virus.

“Ringo a la COVID and the tour will be put on hold while he recovers. Ringo hopes to resume as soon as possible and is recovering at home. As always, he and the All-Starrs send peace and love to their fans and hope to see them back on the road soon. We will keep fans informed of any news or changes,” a statement read.

Due to Ringo's illness, five concerts scheduled to take place in Canada have been canceled. It is not yet known whether upcoming concerts in the United States will be affected.
