Ringo Starr, drummer for the Beatles, hit pause on his tour this month due to COVID-19 in his touring party. He has since rescheduled many of his dates, and kicks off the tour at Tanglewood in Lenox, Massachusetts on Labor Day, Monday, September 5.
The All Starr Band includes bandmates Steve Lukather, Colin Hay, Warren Ham, Gregg Bissonette, Hamish Stuart and Edgar Winter. When the shows were canceled, Starr shared a statement that read, “We were having so much fun paying again and it was disappointing to have to stop. But we were able to reschedule these shows and add them to our Fall tour – and so as the song goes – I’ll see you in September! Peace and love, Ringo.”
The tour was originally planned to begin on May 27, 2022 at Casino Rama in Rama, Ontario, being the fifth time in Starr’s career where he has launched his tour from there. Seeing him live will be well anticipated by his fan base, considering the delays due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, nothing stopped him from committing to what he loves, releasing two EPs, Zoom In and Change The World to add onto his legendary catalog.
I can’t wait to get back out on the road and play. This is the longest I’ve been off the road in years up until 2020 I was touring every year with the All Starrs and I’ve really missed it. Making music in the studio has been great, and it certainly saved me during the pandemic, but nothing beats playing live with great musicians in front of an audience. I love my fans and they love me and it’s going to be wonderful to be peace and loving and playing for them again.Ringo Starr
Not only is Starr a nine time Grammy Award winner, but has also been inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and received an Academy and Emmy Award for his commendable acting. His success does not end there, however. Starr has published 8 books and released 20 studio solo records. The pandemic was a minor set back, but after celebrating 30 years of touring with his All Starr Bands in 2019, he has never felt more ready to continue this journey.
While he’ll be starting very close to Eastern New York, this does mean his shows at CMAC and Beacon Theater look like they won’t be rescheduled just yet.
Regardless of Starr’s many accomplishments, at heart he will forever love being a drummer and the impact he has on rock music.
