Animal Collective announce date change for Sydney show

To all those Sydney-siders out there who like to listen to far-out, psychedelic sounds - particularly on a Wednesday - you had best listen up...

Due to an unforeseen International transportation problem (potentially involving an elephant, two tuk-tuks and a hang-glider), Animal Collective’s musical equipment will arrive late into Australia, which has forced a date change for the first Australian headline show in Sydney.

The show originally scheduled for Wednesday January 16 will remain at the Enmore Theatre, but has been moved to the following day (Thursday January 17).

(Though due to the experimental nature of their music, they could have embraced this touring hiccup and played the initial date using nothing more than a few iPads, a human beatbox and some half-filled glasses of water. Why not?)

Tickets purchased for the Wednesday will still be valid for the rescheduled show. In the case where Thursdays don't really do it for you, you cannot get the babysitter to come the following day, or you also have an unforeseen international transportation problem, ticket costs will be fully refunded.

Animal Collective have issued the following statement:

“Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control we have to move our show at The Enmore to January 17th. Our equipment's arrival has been delayed and we will not be able to play the original date on January 16th. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause fans that were planning to come on the 16th and cannot make it to the new show. We're aware of how rare it is for us to visit Australia and how infrequently our fans there get a chance to see us. Again, we're very sorry, and hopefully most of you will be able to still make it to the show. We're looking forward to playing and can't wait to see you guys. Love, AC”

You can catch Animal Collective play the following shows in 2013:

Thursday January 17 - Enmore Theatre, Sydney. *Rescheduled date
Wednesday January 23 - Palace Theatre, Melbourne.
