The singer's Chicago and St. Paul tour dates have been rescheduled for late August.

Katy Perry has postponed two concert dates due to illness, according to concert promoters Jam Productions.

Food poisoning has caused Perry to reschedule Friday's Chicago show at Allstate Arena and Saturday's concert at St. Paul's Xcel Energy Center to Aug. 21 and Aug. 23, respectively.

"I apologize to my fans in Chicago and the Twin Cities for not being able to perform this weekend, but I am going to return in a few weeks to give them the very best show ever!," Perry said.

The singer's postponements follows on the heels of Taylor Swift announcing that due to bronchitis, a handful of her July tour dates in support of her Speak Now album will take place later this fall.

Perry took to Twitter to express sadness over having to delay the shows a few more weeks: "Chicago and St. Paul - I'm so sorry to have to postpone today and tomorrow's shows. But I'll be back 8/21 (CHI) and 8/23 (St. Paul)!"

Perry's latest single off her Teenage Dream album, "Last Night (T.G.I.F.)," may be the fifth No. 1 single, which would make her the first musical artist to do so since Michael Jackson did it in the late 19902.
