Katy Perry Reschedules Concerts After Food Poisoning

Katy Perry

The 'Teenage Dream' singer promises to return in a few weeks to give Chicago and St. Paul 'the best show ever'.

Katy Perry regrettably has to put her tour on hold due to illness. The "California Gurl" singer is postponing her concerts in Chicago and St. Paul on July 8 and 9 respectively after she got struck down by food poisoning that left her severely dehydrated.

The canceled dates have been rescheduled for August 21 at Chicago's Allstate Arena and August 23 at St. Paul's Xcel Energy Center. "I apologize to my fans in Chicago and the Twin Cities for not being able to perform this weekend, but I am going to return in a few weeks to give them the very best show ever!" Katy said in a statement.

All tickets purchased for the original shows will be honored and refunds will be available at the original place of purchase.

Katy is the latest singer to have caught illness while touring. Adele and Taylor Swift have both halted their tours due to unspecified illness.

    While I'm sorry to hear that Katy Perry is ill, I can't tell you how disappointiing this is for my daughters and their friend!They are HUGE fans of Katy and we're so looking forward to seeing her in concert!They have been saving ever since they found out about this tour! They flew from NL, Canada to Chicago to see Katy, booked a hotel on a website for which they will not be refunded, and will not be able to see the concert in August as they will be back in Canada!Is there anything else that can be done?
