Billy Idol has bowed out of his upcoming tour with Journey to get surgery for a chronic sinus infection.

“I am absolutely gutted that I won’t be able to perform the upcoming dates with Journey as planned,” Idol said in a statement.

The punk rocker was slated to embark on the Freedom Tour on Feb. 22 and support Journey through April 5, at which point Toto would take over the opening slot. Toto will now open the entire tour, from Feb. 22 in Pittsburgh through May 11 in Hartford, Conn.

You can see the full list of dates — including two newly announced shows — below.

"It’s that time — time to get back to where we are used to being — onstage!” Journey guitarist Neal Schon said in a statement. “We are looking forward to shifting into high gear and bringing you the best show possible. The band is running on all 12 cylinders and very excited!  Please come and join us once again for an evening full of rocking, stage connection fun. See you soon, friends.”

Toto guitarist Steve Lukather and singer Joseph Williams added: “We are looking forward to staging 40 shows with Journey across the U.S. Most of the guys are lifelong friends, and it'll be a pleasure to spend quality time together. We all wish Billy the best. Can't wait to get back out on the road in the coming weeks.”
