Ringo Starr has announced that two members of his All Starr Band — Edgar Winter and Steve Lukather — have tested positive for Covid, forcing the band to postpone the last 12 gigs of their summer tour. These shows were initially planned for 2020, and ultimately pushed due to the pandemic.
According to the announcemnt, the band was halfway through the 22-show run when Ringo let audiences know on June 7th, during the second of three sold-out shows at New York’s Beacon theater, that Edgar Winter had Covid, but the All Starrs would play on.
