The British rock band Def Leppard is postponing the remainder of its winter tour due to an unspecified illness.

A statement on the group's website said all concerts starting Tuesday through Feb. 17 will be rescheduled. That includes shows scheduled in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and Brooklyn, New York.

A publicist for the band did not respond to a message seeking details.

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 its latest self-titled album last year and debuted its new music video for "Dangerous" through the video game "Guitar Hero Live."
