Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band Postpone Two Tour Dates Because of an Unspecified Illness

Credit: Rob ShanahanAs Ringo Starr winds down his current series of tour dates with his All Starr Band, an unspecified illness has forced the former Beatles drummer and his group to postpone a couple of concerts this week.  The affected shows were to have taken place this past Thursday at the Chumash Casino in Santa Ynez, California, and tonight at The Masonic theater in San Francisco.

According to a message on the Chumash Casino's official Facebook page, while Starr "hopes to be able to reschedule the date sometime in the future, no date has been set and ticket holders will be refunded."  As for the San Francisco concert, the Masonic theater has announced that it has been moved to October 1, although fans with tickets also can receive a refund if they choose.

Starr and his All Starr Band still have two more shows left on their itinerary -- a Saturday performance at the Pala Casino in Pala, California, and a Sunday concert at the Palms Casino Resort's Pearl Concert Theater in Las Vegas.  Those events currently are still scheduled to go on as planned.

As previously reported, Ringo will release a new solo album titled Postcards from Paradise on March 31.  The record is his first to feature contributions from the entire All Starr Band, whose lineup includes Todd Rundgren, Toto guitarist Steve Lukather and ex-Santana/Journey singer-keyboardist Gregg Rolie.  You can check out an official lyrics video of the title track, as well as audio clips of the songs "Right Side of the Road" and "Not Looking Back," at Starr's VEVO channel.
