Country music group Alabama is postponing the remainder of their "50th Anniversary Tour," including a stop in Wichita with The Beach Boys. 

The two groups were set to perform at INTRUST Bank Arena on November 2. Rescheduled dates are expected to be announced in the coming weeks. 

The arena said tickets purchased for the original date will be honored for the newly rescheduled dates. Fans who are unable to attend the new date can get a refund at their original point of purchase. 

Alabama's publicist said the tour was postponed due to lead singer Randy Owen's ongoing complications with cluster migraines and vertigo. Doctors have advised more time is needed for Owen to fully recover.  

Wichita was the only North American city on Alabama's tour to feature a performance by The Beach Boys.

Alabama bass player and vocalist Teddy Gentry released the following statement Wednesday:

"The '50th Anniversary Tour' has been very special to us. The support of the fans and their energy at all of our shows has led to some of the most fun we've ever had onstage. As disappointed as myself, Randy, and Jeff are to have to postpone this tour for all of our incredible fans, we know that Randy's recovery is what is most important for everyone at this time. We would like to thank our fans, promoters, and venues and we look forward to seeing you all soon."
