But the troubled outfit will be ready to play Glastonbury...

WILCO have cancelled the first eight dates of their upcoming US tour, including their slot at the COACHELLA festival, due to frontman JEFF TWEEDY's continuing recovery from addiction to painkillers.

As previously reported on NME.COM, Tweedy has entered a Chicago rehab centre to tackle the problem.

The release of new album 'A Ghost Is Born' was pushed back two weeks from June 7 to 21, "to accommodate (Tweedy's) recovery", according to a spokesperson.

The cancelled dates scheduled so far are:
Columbia Blue Note (21 April)
New Orleans Orpheum (23)
Austin Stubb's (24-25)
Santa Fe Lensic Theatre (27)
Flagstaff Orpheum (28)
Tucson Rialto Theatre (29)
Indio Coachella Festival (May 1)

The band are due to resume touring on May 28, and their jaunt will include a slot at the Glastonbury Festival on June 25.

The dates still on are:

Barcelona Primavera Sound Festival (May 28)
Pittsburgh Three Rivers Arts Festival (June 6)
Poughkeepsie The Chance (7)
Manchester Bonnaroo Festival (11)
Oslo Norwegian Wood Festival (20)
Birmingham Academy (June 22)
