Treefort Music Fest headliner Animal Collective has canceled a string of March tour dates, including a stop at Treefort's Main Stage Sunday, March 24. According to a statement from band member Avey Tare:
I feel its best you hear it right from the horses mouth. It kills me to have to postpone all these shows and it's something I could never even have imagined happening. I'm positive that we were as excited as you all to visit all of your towns and have a good time together. But because of the strain on my voice that's being caused by an intense case of strep throat, I am unable to play any of these shows. Unfortunately, I wasn't diagnosed soon enough and haven't been able to kick this in the right amount of time. We promise you all that we are doing everything we can to reschedule all these shows asap and we will be visiting your cities. We hope you can all understand and sympathize with the situation.
The band plans to resume their tour in Europe with some dates at the end of May, before returning to the United States for shows in June and July.
