English post punk group Gang of Four have been forced to cancel their upcoming China tour. Last month, the band cut short their show in Williamsburg, Brooklyn when lead-singer Andy Gill was hospitalized with a chest infection. 

In a statement released on 247tickets earlier today, the platform confirmed that Gill has not recovered, leading the band to cancel their China and Japan dates, while postponing their Australia and New Zealand Tours. 

According to a report by US music website, Pitchfork, Gill was hospitalized on Monday, February 25 after developing a serious chest infection on tour in the week prior to their scheduled show in Brooklyn.
