Animal Collective Postpone Remaining U.S. Tour Dates

Animal Collective have postponed the rest of their current U.S. tour due to Avey Tare’s illness. As previously reported, the band rescheduled five other shows earlier this week for the same reason. The newly postponed shows have not yet been rescheduled but the new dates should be released soon. A post on Animal Collective’s Facebook page from earlier today reads:

a note from avey tare:

To all of the AC fans out there. I feel its best you hear it right from the horses mouth. It kills me to have to postpone all these shows and it’s something I could never even have imagined happening. I’m positive that we were as excited as you all to visit all of your towns and have a good time together. But because of the strain on my voice that’s being caused by an intense case of strep throat, I am unable to play any of these shows. Unfortunately, I wasn’t diagnosed soon enough and haven’t been able to kick this in the right amount of time. We promise you all that we are doing everything we can to reschedule all these shows asap and we will be visiting your cities. We hope you can all understand and sympathize with the situation. It’s been really fun for all of us to be playing these days and the energy you all give us makes us want to take it further and further with you and give it right back. Hopefully, we can continue to do this together soon. Until then. Stay Well.

3/17/13 – Madison, WI—Orpheum Theatre
