British rockers Spiritualized have pulled two upcoming shows to allow frontman Jason Pierce to undergo medical treatment.
The band has axed its headlining show at the Standon Calling festival in Standon, England over the weekend of 12 - 14 August (11), as well as a gig in Sicily, so Pierce, also known as J. Spaceman, can regain full health.
A press release from the group's agent reads, "J. Spaceman has been undergoing a course of medical treatment, which is near completion, and has left management no choice but to cancel following advice from his medical team.
"Everything possible has been done to try and play these shows but it recently became apparent that Jason would not be able to perform. Spiritualized apologise to everyone who is affected and hope they realise that cancellation was the only unavoidable option given the medical circumstances."
The band's October (11) tour dates remain unaffected.
