The band said on Instagram that it would not longer perform at Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., due to "unforeseen circumstances."

"This morning my father suffered a medical emergency and was transported to the ER where he received much-needed and great care. He is now fairly stable and will continue to undergo some procedures, but as you can understand, I have to stay in NYC and can't play tonight's show in Saratoga Springs," he said.
