Animal Collective Cancel More Shows, Announce Rescheduled Dates

Animal Collective Cancel More Shows, Announce Rescheduled Dates
Morrissey isn't the only one cancelling shows due to poor health recently. Animal Collective have axed a few dates due to a sudden illness in the band, but fans need not fear, since the beloved experimental pop group have already rescheduled the shows.

On Saturday (March 9), the band cancelled a performance at Toronto's Danforth Music Hall. They have now called off subsequent U.S. gigs in Cleveland, Covington, Nashville and Royal Oak, and plan to resume their tour on Saturday (March 16) in Chicago.

All five postponed dates have been rescheduled for July. In the case of the Toronto gig, it has been moved to July 9 at the same venue. It's unclear whether originally scheduled opener Dan Deacon is on board for these gigs, although it's worth noting that he's not included on the press release.

All tickets will be honoured for rescheduled dates or can be refunded at place of purchase.

The band tweeted that the shows had been put off due to "sudden illness."
