Bon Jovi's North American tour is off to a bummer of a start thanks to the flu.

The band posted the following message informing fans their first two tour dates in Montreal were now rescheduled.

Unfortunately due to band and crew members being affected by the flu epidemic, the 2 Bon Jovi shows in Montreal have been rescheduled. Tickets for the April 4th will be honored on May 17th and tickets for April 5th will be honored on May 18th. We apologize for the inconvenience.

So far, the tour is set to resume on April 7 in Newark, N.J.

It's a good thing the flu has hit the band now instead of next week.  Next Saturday (April 14), the band will be heading to Cleveland to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with Dire StraitsNina SimoneSister Rosetta TharpeThe Cars and The Moody Blues.
