LENOX, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Following one band member testing positive for COVID-19 on June 7, the show cannot go on for Tanglewood's slated concert featuring Ringo Starr And His All Starr Band, as another musician came back with positive tests on Saturday.
According to the band's officials website, the Tanglewood's June 17 concert will be rescheduled for a different date sometime in September, to be determined later. First, Edgar Winter test positive, then Steve Lukather tested positive for COVID-19 on June 11.
“We are so sorry to let the fans down. It’s been wonderful to be back out on the road and we have been having such a great time playing for you all. But as we all know, Covid is still here and despite being careful these things happen. I want to thank the fans for their patience, I send you all peace and love, and we can’t wait to be back in the Fall,” Starr said.
The band went on to say their July 7 performance for the annual Peace and Love birthday celebration will have live streams available on Ringo Starr's Facebook page.
Officials encouraged ticketholders to hold onto their tickets until further information is available about a rescheduled performance, as holders will be contacted directly as soon as information is available.
