EDMONTON — Matthew Good's concert scheduled for Wednesday night in Prince George, B.C., was postponed for a day as the Canadian rocker recovered from pneumonia.

A post on his social media accounts Tuesday said the concert with him and Our Lady Peace at the CN Centre will now take place Thursday.

It said all tickets purchased for Wednesday's show will be valid Thursday.

Those who can't make it Thursday can inquire about a refund through the TicketsNorth box office or its phone number.

Good, who hails from Vancouver, was taken to hospital Tuesday night after collapsing onstage during a performance at Edmonton's Jubilee Auditorium.

His social media accounts say he was taken to hospital "as a precautionary measure."

In a video from the concert posted on social media, Our Lady Peace singer Raine Maida told the crowd that Good "wanted to do the show and he tried to do it and you saw what happened."

The crowd then burst into applause when Maida urged them to give Good a "big hand for even getting up there."

Good and his band are on a cross-Canada tour with Our Lady Peace that began March 1 in St. John's, N.L.

The two acts also performed at the Jubilee Auditorium on Monday night.

The tour will also have a show in Kelowna, B.C., on Friday and end in Abbotsford, B.C., on Saturday.
