Harry Styles at the United Center

Global popstar Harry Styles stretch of shows at the United Center got off to a rough start.

Thursday night’s concert, the first of six scheduled at the United Center between this weekend and next, is being rescheduled for Monday night "out of an abundance of caution" due to "band/crew illness," according to a tweet from the United Center on Thursday afternoon.

All tickets for Thursday’s postponed show will be honored on Monday night; Ticketmaster is notifying those affected by the date change.

The former ‘One Direction’ standout will be at the home of the Bulls at 8 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday as part of his "Love On Tour." Gates open at 6:30 p.m.
