“We are so sorry to let the fans down”, Ringo said in a statement. “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-19] is still here and despite being careful these things happen”.
“I want to thank the fans for their patience”, Starr continued. “I send you all peace and love, and we can’t wait to be back in the Fall”.
