Elephant Revival announced it would be going on hiatus after a stint of festival appearances and a performance at Red Rocks on May 20. The band is canceling eighteen concerts between January and May 2018.
The reason? "Family matters," according to a release.
The band — which has been around for eleven years, put out six albums and performed more than 1,000 concerts — has been a defining force in the Colorado roots-music scene and an advocate for environmental sustainability and public lands.
Below is a list of the group's remaining shows and a full list of canceled concerts.
