Animal Collective Reschedules North American Tour Dates
Illness had caused the band to postpone several March concerts in the U.S.
Illness postponed some concerts on Animal Collective's March North American tour, but the experimental indie group has announced that it has rescheduled them and added a date in Washington, D.C.
Some of those previously postponed dates in Wisconsin, Utah, Colorado and Missouri have been scheduled for September and October. The band will be touring with musician Dan Deacon on selected tour dates during mid-summer and fall North American dates.
Last week, founding member Avey Tare said in a statement that he was sick with strep throat but promised that the band would return to cities originally planned for the tour.
"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," he wrote.
