The British rock band Def Leppard are postponing the remainder of their winter US tour due to an unspecified illness.

A statement on the group's website said a concert scheduled for Tuesday in San Antonio and all concerts going forward through to February 17 will be rescheduled. That includes shows scheduled in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and Brooklyn, New York.

The band previously postponed shows in January in Greensboro, North Carolina, and Orlando, Florida, after singer Joe Elliott lost his voice.

Def Leppard, known for such songs as Pour Some Sugar On Me and Photograph, released their latest self-titled album last year and debuted the new music video for Dangerous through the video game Guitar Hero Live.
