Green Day Postpones Several Tour Dates Due to Illness
An unspecified illness among band and crew members on Green Day’s tour has led to postponements and a cancelation on their itinerary.
A statement issued by the band said three of the first four dates of the tour -- St. Louis on Sept. 20, Chicago on Sept. 21 and Detroit on Sept. 24 -- are postponed, while a Toronto appearance scheduled at the World Cup of Hockey Fan Village on Sept. 23 is canceled.
Tickets will be honored at the St. Louis, Chicago and Detroit concerts when they are rescheduled, or fans can get a refund at their point of purchase.
“We're so sad to announce we have to postpone three shows and cancel Toronto. Many of us have been battling this infection for days on end to be ready, and it just got the best of us,” the band said.
As of press time, Green Day will resume its tour on Sept. 26 in Columbus, Ohio.
