Green Day has been forced to cancel three of the first four shows of their new tour after both band and crew members have come down ill.

The band was to start their Revolution Radio Tour with a series of small club shows across the U.S. Three of the first four shows in St. Louis (Tuesday), Chicago (Wednesday) and Detroit (Saturday) are being postponed with tickets being honored at the makeup show. In addition, the Thursday night show at World Cup of Hockey in Toronto has been outright cancelled.

The details of the illness and who specifically was struck by it was not announced. The band said “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.”

Green Day’s next scheduled show is on Monday, September 26 at the Newport Music Hall in Columbus, OH.

The band’s new album, Revolution Road, will be out October 7.
