It was confirmed on Monday that Sir Ringo had tested positive for Covid and would be canceling five more appearances.

The Beatles legend pulled out of a performance at the Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo just hours before taking the stage over the weekend.

The band’s spokesman previously said Ringo does not have COVID-19.

One of the concert-goers told TMZ that he went to Four Winds Casino management and explained to them why the show was a no-go and was told Sir Ringo was ill but would not be going on.

The nine-time Grammy winner and his All Starr Band wrapped up the first leg of their 2022 Spring Tour on June 26 in Clearwater, Florida.

The tour — postponed due to the 2020 pandemic — resumed in Bridgeport, Connecticut, on September 23 and was scheduled to conclude in Mexico City on October 20.

In July, Sir Ringo celebrated his 82nd birthday by hosting his annual Peace and Love Party in Beverly Hills, California.

Sir Ringo’s birthday party came just weeks after him made history as the first member of The Beatles to auction a collection of NFT digital artwork.

The sum of $1,000 was the starting bid for all five of the Englishman’s tracks – Galaxy One, Galaxy Two, Bandana Man, Starr Art and Crash – which include short animated videos of his drumming.

“All I ever wanted was to be a drummer, but you never know where a new idea or path will take you,” Sir Ringo (born Richard Starkey) said in a statement.

“This new technology is so advanced that it has inspired me and I have loved creating these NFTs that combine my art and my music. Who would have thought I would spread peace and love throughout the metaverse.”

A portion of the proceeds benefited the Lotus Foundation, an organization dedicated to advancing social welfare in areas such as substance abuse, cerebral palsy, brain tumors, cancer, abused women and their children, homelessness and needy animals.
