Rocker Chris Daughtry and his namesake band canceled their tour’s weekend shows after his adult daughter was found dead Friday, though Wednesday's concert at The Paramount in Huntington remained on schedule as of Sunday.

"The only information we have at this time is what Daughtry posted on his social media yesterday," a Paramount representative told Newsday on Sunday. "We will update all ticketholders once we have additional confirmation from his team tomorrow."

That information was conflicting. Late Friday, the band posted on its Facebook page that due to the unexpected death of 25-year-old Hannah Price, the daughter of Daughtry's wife Deanna, "all currently scheduled shows for the coming week for Daughtry have been postponed. The Daughtry family thanks you for your understanding and respectfully asks for privacy during this very difficult time."

Daughtry himself, however, wrote on social media afterward that, "Daughtry Shows through Nov 16th are rescheduled." Ticketing sites and the band's website Sunday continued to list shows Tuesday at the Wellmont Theater in Montclair, New Jersey, and Wednesday at The Paramount, whose website also shows the concert remaining scheduled.

The band's Friday concert at the Borgata hotel-casino in Atlantic City was canceled so that Daughtry could return home to Tennessee to be with his family. Shows Saturday at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, Maryland, outside Washington, D.C., and Sunday at the Mohegan Sun hotel-casino in Uncasville, Connecticut, were postponed to indefinite dates.

On the band's social media Saturday, four-time Grammy nominee Daughtry, 41, wrote, "I am still processing the last 24 hours. I am absolutely devastated and heartbroken. I just recently in the last week lost my mother to cancer but I was blessed with the chance to say goodbye and I was processing it privately. We never got to say goodbye to our precious Hannah and it's another huge hit to our family."

He added, "Thank you for all the kind words and condolences, They are truly felt and appreciated. I am now taking time to be present with my family as we attempt to heal from this series of devastating losses. Hannah, I love you and I miss you. I wish I could hold you. This hurts so deeply."

Deanna Daughtry on her Instagram wrote in part, "We are awaiting the autopsy results to determine how Hannah sustained the injuries that caused her death."

Daughtry, who celebrated his 21st wedding anniversary on Thursday, reportedly adopted Deanna's children from a previous relationship, daughter Hannah and son Griffin. The couple also has twins Adalynn Rose and Noah James, who turn 11 on Wednesday.

TMZ.com on Saturday said District Attorney General Jared Effler, who covers five counties including Fentress, where Price's body was found Friday, confirmed his office is conducting a death investigation. Citing unnamed detectives, TMZ said Daughtry's family was told the death was a homicide.

In April 2018, Price and a companion, Bobby Jolly, were charged with aggravated assault following a hit-and-run accident and a road-age attack in which they allegedly shot at another driver. A .22-caliber rifle was recovered from their vehicle. The outcome of the case could not be immediately determined.

That October, she was shot and seriously injured by a teen charged with attempted murder and other crimes, and she later launched a GoFundMe campaign for medical bills not covered by insurance and to replace a car she said was totaled in the shooting.
