Turn out it's a big "No no no no" for Ringo Starr fans in Saskatchewan.

The former Beatle, known for solo hits like You're Sixteen and the No no Song,  was scheduled to perform with his "All-Starr Band" in Regina at the Brandt Centre on Oct. 14.

However, Evraz Place officials said Thursday the concert has been cancelled due to "scheduling conflicts".

Tickets, which went on sale to the general public on March 27, had prices ranging from $72 to $147.

Meanwhile, other western Canadian shows planned for around the same time (there are October shows in Edmonton, Vancouver and Calgary) are still on.
