Agnostic Front's tour with Sick of it All has been cancelled; they're hoping to reschedule the dates for 2022. In a statement, they write, "Due to the sustained pandemic restrictions in place, we will be cancelling our upcoming tour that was scheduled to take place in April-May 2021."

Ringo Starr's postponed All Starr Tour has been pushed back again, this time to 2022. The revised tour dates — set to begin May 31 and run through June 26, 2022 — include two new shows with The Avett Brothers (one in Boston and another in Golford, NH), Beacon Theatre shows on June 6-8 2022 (tickets), and a Red Bank, NJ show at Count Basie Theater on June 10 (tickets), with more dates on the way. "They’ll be no touring this year," Ringo says. "At the end of last year when we moved the tour to 2021, who would have thought this would be still going on. While I’ve had my vaccine, big gatherings are not yet safe and too many people will still be at risk. So we will be moving the tour once again - this time to 2022. I miss playing live music and I miss our peace and loving audiences so much. I can’t wait to get back out there, but it doesn’t make sense to go until it is safe for everyone and we can relax and really enjoy being together." See all dates here.
