Ringo Starr cancels Canadian shows after catching COVID-19


Ringo Starr has cancelled shows in North America after testing positive for COVID.

The 82-year-old former Beatle, who has been touring with his All-Starr band, is now recovering at home.

According to his spokesperson, the drummer is “recovering at home” and hopes to resume shows soon.

Last year, Sir Ringo confessed that he had rarely ventured outside in the early days of the pandemic, to avoid catching Covid-19.

Along with a photo of Sir Ringo giving the peace sign while sat next to an aeroplane window, the message signed off: “Peace and Love, Team Ringo”.

Sir Ringo shot to fame as one quarter of The Beatles – arguably the world’s most famous band. He joined the Fab Four in 1962, just before they hit the big time, replacing original drummer Pete Best.

Establishing a successful solo career after The Beatles split in 1970, Sir Ringo formed his All-Starr band in 1989.

He was knighted for his services to music in 2018.
