Pop star Katy Perry's Friday concert at Allstate Arena has been postponed to August 21.

A news release from promoter Jam Productions says illness forced the cancellation of Perry's shows in Chicago Friday and Minneapolis Saturday. The release says Perry suffered food poisoning resulting in severe dehydrations.

Jam Productions has rescheduled the shows to August 21 in Chicago and August 23 in St. Paul, in the same venues. All tickets purchased will be honored. Refunds will be available at the original point of purchase.
