Ringo Starr has announced that he is rescheduling his 2020 North American tour with his All Starr Band to 2021, citing concern and caution for the well being of fans, crew and staff due to the Covid-19 crisis. The lineup remains intact: Steve Lukather, Colin Hay, Gregg Rolie, Warren Ham, Gregg Bissonette, and Hamish Stuart. The spring 2021 tour will include a mini residency at New York’s Beacon Theatre.

“This is very difficult for me,” said Starr, in the March 27 announcement. “In 30 years I think I’ve only missed 2 or 3 gigs nevermind a whole tour. But this is how things are for all of us now, I have to stay in just like you have to stay in, and we all know it’s the peace and loving thing we do for each other.”

Two dates will include Americana band, the Avett Brothers. (No longer on the schedule are performances in Bangor, Me., and Mexico.) Tickets already purchased for the 2020 dates will be honored at the 2021 performances. Tickets are available for purchase here.

The original 2020 tour was announcement on Nov. 4, 2019, on the heels of the release of Ringo’s 20th studio album, What’s My Name. The title track is a rousing anthem written by a returning All Starr Band member, Colin Hay, that turns a familiar chant from Ringo’s live shows into a rousing rocker.

The album is the latest in a series of recordings that Starr has produced in his home studio and a distinguished cast of musical friends playing along with Ringo, including Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh, Winter, Dave Stewart, Benmont Tench, Lukather, Nathan East, Hay, Richard Page, Warren Ham, and more.

Starr, who turns 80 on July 7, recently released Another Day in the Life, the third in his series of books with Genesis Publications, that follows the sell-out success of Postcards From the Boys (2003) and Photograph (2013), and features previously unpublished collection of his photographs, captioned with his own thoughts and anecdotes.
