Animal Collective Postpone July Tour Dates, Cancel Bisco and Forecastle Shows

Animal Collective have postponed all of their upcoming July tour dates due to an illness, and their performances at this weekend’s Camp Bisco and Forecastle festivals have been cancelled. Their tour will resume as scheduled on September 6 at Portland, OR’s MusicFest NW. A statement from the band reads:

Hey AC fans,

Due to illness, we will unfortunately not be able to perform our upcoming July tour dates, including the Camp Bisco and Forecastle festivals.  We deeply apologize and tried our best to make it work with an alternate set, but ultimately we didn’t feel like we were giving fans what they deserved from an Animal Collective show.  We are working on rescheduling the non-festival dates as soon as possible.  Again we send our sincerest apologies to fans anticipating these shows, especially considering the cancellations earlier this year.

- Avey Tare, Deakin, Geologist, and Panda Bear

Animal Collective were forced to reschedule a number of shows earlier this year because of health issues as well. They also cancelled a show in Brooklyn at the end of last year.

Yep. It looks like their Nashville date is cancelled, unfortunately…

Does anyone know if this includes their show in Nashville at Marathon Music on July 19th?

I may be naive; but, don’t you think that those in the management at Camp Bisco knew about this cancellation long before today? “Thanks to all for selling out the festival” and, oh, by the way, these guys have cancelled. Like the Mumford show cancellation news right on the heels of the news that Bonnaroo sold out. Just smells bad.
