The Avalanches cancel remaining North American tour dates due to “serious illness”2 min read
The Avalanches have cancelled their remaining North American tour dates thanks to “serious illness”.
The Australian duo have been on tour driving their 2020 album ‘We Will Often Adore You’, and have been established to wrap up with US and Canada headline shows this month.
These dates have now been called off, with the band taking to social media to inform enthusiasts: “Unfortunately thanks to really serious health issues, we have had to make the heartbreaking decision to terminate our remaining US and Canadian displays to return house.
“Thank you to anyone who has produced this tour so joyous, and apologies to everybody who experienced tickets for the remaining reveals. All ticket holders will be contacted right with refund information. Thank you.”
The band’s present tour, which was set to strike Detroit tonight (Oct 2) and wrap up in Philadelphia later on this month (Oct 10), was rescheduled from before in 2022, when “ongoing personal health and fitness issues” led to the dates becoming pushed back.

Previously this year, The Avalanches contributed to a task that will involve sending unique transmissions to the Moon and again as portion of the United kingdom-vast Tour de Moon competition.
As component of the competition, resourceful director Dr. Nelly Ben Hayoun, who is also the founder of NASA’s Worldwide Space Orchestra, has collaborated with artists which include The Avalanches, Massive Attack, Moses Boyd and Pussy Riot using Moonbounce: an Earth-Moon-Earth (EME) technology.
The band’s Robbie Chater explained to NME about how they received concerned. “We worked with Nelly all through lockdown, when we did a collaboration with the International Area Orchestra via Zoom,” he mentioned. “We carried out a variation of our music ‘Wherever You Go’ together, which was a really, genuinely amazing working experience.”
He continued: “I suppose we’ve generally been fascinated in the thought of sampling and of sound as a variety of never ever ending everyday living-force, a cycle of transmission that goes all around and about and about. I love contemplating about how there’ll be an old document that we come across and I typically imagine about what was going on in the person’s lifestyle who made that history at the time, say in the 1950s, and how they’ve recorded all their emotion and thoughts on to wax.”
