Ringo Starr recently canceled five shows with his All Starr Band after he tested positive for COVID-19, but the former Beatles drummer has announced that he and his group are set to relaunch their tour as planned on Tuesday, October 11 in Seattle, Washington.

On Monday, Ringo posted a message on his social media pages that reads, “On the road again I will see you in Seattle on Tuesday the 11th Portland [Oregon on] Wednesday I am negative peace and love everybody thanks for waiting.”

Accompanying the note is a photo of Starr flashing a peace sign and showing off his negative COVID test.

Besides the Seattle and Portland concerts, Ringo and the All Starr Band have five more shows remaining on their current North American trek — on October 14 in San Jose, California; October 15 in Paso Robles, California; October 16 in Los Angeles; and on October 19 and 20 in Mexico City, Mexico.

Last month, Ringo released a new four-track EP titled EP3. He also recently announced that an archival concert album and video titled Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band Live at The Greek Theater 2019 will be released on November 25.
