Animal Collective reschedule LA shows

The band make up gigs cancelled due to singer's illness

Animal Collective have announced that they are rescheduling two sold-out Los Angeles shows that they cancelled in January due to the lead singer’s illness.

The shows, originally set to take place at the Henry Fonda Theatre on January 23 and the Troubadour on January 24, have been rescheduled for February 26 and 27 at the same venues.

The Henry Fonda Theatre will honour all tickets for the original show. Those who cannot attend should contact Ticketmaster for a refund. The Troubadour will be contacting ticketholders with details about how to proceed.

The band were forced to cancel the original shows because frontman Avey Tare, aka David Portner, was struck ill, as previously reported.
