It was announced Friday afternoon that Christian hip-hop recording artist TobyMac's upcoming concert series will be postponed.

The Theater Tour, slated to begin next Thursday in Springfield, MO, has been rescheduled to the spring of next year.

"Due to the untimely passing of his oldest son Truett Foster, Toby's place is at home with his family this fall. The TobyMac Theatre Tour in its entirety has been rescheduled to the spring. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause fans," the announcement read.

Truett was found deceased Oct. 23 at a home in Nashville, according to The Tennessean.
