Van Halen have postponed four concerts while guitarist Eddie Van Halen undergoes medical treatment, the band announced Monday.

“The Van Halen concerts in Dallas, Cincinnati, Raleigh, and Baltimore have been postponed,” says a new message on the band’s Web site. “According to Eddie Van Halen’s physician, he is undergoing a battery of comprehensive medical tests to determine a defined diagnosis and recommended medical procedures.”

On Sunday posted a YouTube video of him playing onstage during a Feb. 20 concert and speculated about his performance during their song “Jump.” But fans commenting on the clip were divided about whether there was actually anything wrong with the performance at all.

In 2002, Eddie Van Halen announced he was cancer-free after a year of battling the disease.

The band’s postponed shows have been rescheduled for April.
