Dan Deacon hospitalized, cancels shows


Dan Deacon, known for his crowd-participation-centric live shows, has canceled the last five dates on his North American tour due to back problems.  Deacon was hospitalized and diagnosed with acute sciatica last week.

Chronicling his health problems via his Facebook page, Deacon described a horrible pain in his leg and back that eventually forced him to visit the hospital.  He attributes his health problems to constant touring.

But the positive-thinking musician remained optimistic, saying "i need to focus more on my health, which will lead to a clearer mind and a more focused music. i'm excited about the future and the various paths that are being present ahead of me."

The canceled shows were scheduled from Friday, Nov. 13 to Wed., Nov. 18 in the Northeast.
