Green Day was planning to start their new tour on September 20 in order to support their upcoming album. However, the first three dates have been postponed and the fourth date has been canceled entirely. The band stated "Green Day regretfully must postpone three of the first four dates of their upcoming tour and must cancel the Toronto appearance, all due to illness affecting several members of the band and its crew.[…] 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."
