It follows the announcement by Ringo’s representatives that the singer will not be able to perform any vocals at his future gigs due to an illness.
At the beginning of July, Ringo celebrated his 82nd birthday with his annual Peace and Love party.
As of the end of June in Florida, he and his band had completed the first leg of their Spring Tour 2022.
The coronavirus epidemic pushed back the tour’s original 2020 start date. On October 20 in Mexico City, they will conclude the second leg of their tour.
Meanwhile, Ringo has recently shared a story about how the legendary musical group often accused one another of farting on stage.
As a clip from Peter Jackson’s Apple TV documentary Let It Be was shown for Ringo, he verbally vented his frustration.
Ringo was caught on tape in 1969 saying that he’d let one fly during a group session.
Ringo said, “We learnt that when we were in a band, when we started out, if somebody let a silent one go, they would attempt to get away with it” after seeing his admission played again on American television.
“It caused horrible difficulties,” Ringo reflected. Every single one of us would claim, “It wasn’t me; it was you!” They started fighting.
