For the first time in a 20-year career, Spiritualized have been forced to cancel two show on the advise of Jason Pierce’s doctors.

Pierce – the only constant member of the band – has been undergoing a course of medical treatment which is nearly complete, but his medical team have advised him not to play his forthcoming date in Sicily or at the UK’s Standon Calling Festival.

A statement released yesterday [August 1 2011] read: Everything possible has been done to try and play these shows but it recently became apparent that Jason would not be able to perform.
