Former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr, 82, has tested positive for the corona virus after several concerts in the United States were cancelled.

"Ringo is hoping to get back on track as soon as possible and is recovering at home," the British news agency PA quoted a statement from his management as saying.

The ex-Beatle had previously canceled performances in the cities of New Buffalo, Michigan, and Prior Lake, Minnesota on Sunday due to an illness that was affecting his voice, one of the organizers said.

The corona virus was initially ruled out as a cause.

In the meantime, five concerts in Canada have also been cancelled.

The remainder of the tour will be decided based on Starr's health.

He has been touring with his All Starr Band for around 30 years, but the line-up keeps changing.

His current tour includes Steve Lukather (guitar, bass) from Toto, Colin Hay (guitar) from Men at Work, Hamish Stuart (guitar, bass) from Average White Band, and Edgar Winter (keyboards, Saxophone).

Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney are the last living Beatles, McCartney just turned 80 years old.

Ringo Starr is the latest member to join the Beatles after the band broke up with old drummer Pete Best.

Starr is the oldest Beatle.
