After finally releasing their first album in 16 years, “Wildflower”, it looked like they were finally back but now they’ve had another setback.
The Avalanches’ Tony Di Blasi is beig advised by doctors not to travel out of their native Australia due to a medical condition.
Their date for Australia’s Splendour in the Grass festival later this month is still on. Appearances at Lowlands in the Netherlands and Way Out West in Sweden, along with other European dates were cancelled.
They posted the following statement on their Facebook page:
Thanks to everyone who has supported The Avalanches this year, we are so pleased you are enjoying Wildflower.
Preparations for our live show at Splendour are going well but unfortunately due to a medical condition requiring treatment in Australia, Tony has been advised against international travel for the next few months, so with great disappointment we have had to postpone some forthcoming festival appearances in Europe.
Thanks to everyone worldwide who has made Wildflower such a success, and stay tuned for rescheduled and new live dates soon. Big Love,
