The Associated Press reported Aug. 29, 1995, that Ringo Starr had canceled the remainder of the 1995 tour and flown to England after his daughter, Lee, age 24, collapsed.

She reportedly underwent a successful operation to drain fluid from her brain and is now doing fine.

The band did not be perform in Reno (Nev.), San Diego, Monterey, or Santa Barbara.
