The dates scheduled for concerts in California and Mexico have been canceled.

“I’m sure you’ll be surprised how much I tested positive for COVID again,” he wrote, sharing a photo of himself on Twitter.

“The rest of the tour is interrupted. I send you peace and love, Ringo.”

He and his band All Starr canceled a string of shows in Michigan, Minnesota, and Canada after falling ill for the first time.

Sir Ringo became famous as a quarter of The cockroaches.
