Two gigs are off due to personal issues

Brooklyn band Grizzly Bear have cancelled two upcoming shows which were scheduled to take place this weekend.

The four-piece will not play either of their planned shows at colleges in Middleton, CT and Bennington, VT due to a passing in the family.

The band are scheduled to perform at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival on April 29, before heading to Europe, where they will kick off a tour on May 11.

In addition to Coachella, the band are on the bill for the Sasquatch! and Pitchfork festivals, as well as a slot opening for The Decemberists at the Central Park Summerstage in New York.

They will play:

Indio, CA Coachella Music Festival (April 29)

George, WA Sasquatch Music Festival (May 26)

Chicago, IL Pitchfork Music Festival (July 14)

New York, NY Central Park Summerstage (July 16)
