Ringo Starr Calls Off Concert Due to Illness

The 82-year-old Beatles drummer has been forced to pull the plug on his scheduled performance in Michigan over the weekend after he came down with a mystery illness.

AceShowbiz - Ringo Starr had to axe a show on Saturday night, October 1 after the drummer fell ill. Hours before he was due on stage, The Beatles icon, 82, pulled out of the gig at the Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo, Michigan after realizing he could not perform due to an illness which impacted his voice.

Ringo does not have Covid, a spokesperson for his group All Starr Band insisted, but did not say what was affecting him. It is still unclear if Ringo and the band's show scheduled for Sunday night in Prior Lake, Minnesota, will proceed. Promoters told fans they could get a refund but organisers are keen to reschedule the New Buffalo show.

It comes after Ringo last month celebrated his 82nd birthday by maintaining the tradition of hosting his yearly "Peace and Love" party in Beverly Hills. He and his second wife Barbara also toasted 41 years of marriage in April.

The nine-time Grammy winner - who has sons Zak, 56, Jason, 54, and daughter Lee, 51, from his decade-long marriage to Maureen Starkey - concluded the Spring Tour 2022 on June 26 in Clearwater Florida with his band. Postponed from 2020 due to the pandemic, it is set to resume in the Fall on September 23 in Bridgeport, Connecticut and is scheduled to finish on October 20 in Mexico City.
