The group assured fans their tickets would be honoured at the rescheduled date, which has not been set yet.
Some on Facebook were not happy.
"I travelled 4 hrs this afternoon and we have a $300 hotel room and booked this time off," Bo Gawryliuk commented on the group's post announcing the delay.
"I left at 2 pm and they announce this now? I can't come whenever they say, I'm out about 2 grand!!! Thanx for the last minute notice," he said.
