His band, Frank Iero and the Future Violents, were set to play Monterrey, Mexico City and Guadalajara over the next three days, but doctor’s orders have forced Iero to postpone the shows.

Iero revealed via his Instagram post that after suffering from a “pretty nasty case of laryngitis and a brutal sinus infection,” he was advised not to fly and to cancel his next three shows in Mexico.

You can read the full post below.

“dear friends, i am beyond gutted to have to break this news to you… after our show in São Paolo i started to feel a bit under the weather but thought i could kick it with some vitamins and a little rest. however, i was wrong and it progressed into a pretty nasty case of laryngitis and a brutal sinus infection. after two flights i made it to mexico city and was able to see a doctor here, but he informed me that i should not fly again for at least a day and half and that we should postpone the remaining shows. I do not take postponing shows lightly, i know that when we book a gig and you buy a ticket that is an agreement between us that i have every intention of following through with. however, ever since my accident in sydney my body reacts in different ways and i unfortunately am not able to recover as quickly as i once did. this particular case really knocked me out and i truly apologize but i have to listen to my body and what the doctors are telling me. i promise to get back out to Mexico as soon as humanly possible and make it up to all of you. i’m so sorry this happened and i hope you can understand. 🖤xofrnk

* All tickets purchased for the Monterrey, Mexico City, & Guadalajara shows will be be either refundable or redeemable for the make up shows *”
