Ringo Starr cancels rest of concert tour after ‘surprise’ second COVID-19 diagnosis


Ringo Starr shared a heartbreaking update with fans on Thursday, announcing he was diagnosed with COVID-19 for a second time and therefore would be canceling the rest of his tour.

“I’m sure you’ll be surprised as I was. I tested positive again for Covid,” the former Beatles drummer wrote on his Twitter account. “The rest of the tour is off.”

He concluded the post wishing “peace and love” to his fans.
