After already rescheduling a number of dates in March — including a Denver show — Animal Collective has announced more postponed shows due to illness.
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.
In March, Animal Collective’s show at the Ogden Theatre was rescheduled for Sept. 9, also because of illness. The rescheduled Denver date is safe from this second round of postponements, though seven July dates will be moved.
