Below is the official statement from the band:

Favourite Sons have to cancel their upcoming shows. The band is extremely disappointed to have to do so but singer Ken Griffin has fallen ill and simply cannot continue on until this clears up - even singing has become painful due to his upper respiratory situation. The overwhelming support from press and fans for this tour has made the band ecstatic, which in turn makes them all the more saddened to have to cancel. They will reschedule and we will notify you of those make up dates as they come.
