The band’s tour was to kick off Tuesday in St. Louis. That concert is postponed along with Chicago’s and a Saturday show in Detroit. New dates were not announced, and the band said they will be disclosed later at

A Toronto gig on Friday is canceled outright.

The club shows were meant to build the buzz for Green Day’s new album “Revolution Radio,” out Oct. 7.
