Animal Collective have announced the cancellation of tonight's show (January 23) at the Henry Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles.

The band were forced to cancel the sold-out gig because the frontman Avey Tare, aka David Portner, was struck ill.

The band's publicist said that his condition is not serious and they waited until late in the day to cancel the show in the hopes that he would recover, but his situation has not improved.

The band have not yet announced whether they will reschedule the show and if they will be forced to cancel their gig tomorrow night (January 24) at the Troubadour.
