Animal Collective Cancels More Tour Dates

Anyone hoping to catch the upcoming Animal Collective shows might have to wait for the rescheduled shows ... Avey Tare is struggling with "an intense case of strep throat" that has forced the band to reschedule the shows listed below, which started on a little over a week ago, followed by Friday night when they cancelled the Riviera Theatre show in Chicago. Opening act Dan Deacon is forced to postpone as well, saying that "even if we had our gear, renting a van and putting together a last minute tour the week after sxsw would of been an almost impossible hell."

"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," he said in a statement on the Animal Collective Facebook page.
