Pop-rock band Tears For Fears, known for 1980s hits such as “Shout,” and “Sowing the Seeds of Love,” has postponed its summer tour.

That includes a June 14 concert that was slated for Outlaw Field at the Idaho Botanical Garden in Boise.

The reason, according to the duo: Family illness.

No information has been issued about when and where a makeup date might occur. It’s also unclear whether another concert might be booked to replace the Tears For Fears date and help keep the Outlaw Field series at its expected minimum number of 10 shows.

Outlaw Field is slated to open its season Monday, May 23, with a sold-out Paul Simon performance.
