March 19, 2008 Australian Tour Cancelled

As some Australian ticketholders have already heard, we have had to cancel the Australian tour. This is really devastating for us to do. Everybody knows I don't cancel a show unless I absolutely have to; what's worse, coming to Australia is the highlight of our year. So many of our favorite shows ever are from our Australian tours, and we were excited about showing everyone the full-band lineup. The note sent out by our wonderful Australian agents, Handsome Tours, says "for personal medical reasons," and that says as much as need be said; if it weren't serious, I would be leaving for Oz next week, believe me. You'll be doing me a great favor if you keep me in your thoughts and prayers, and if you know in your heart that I don't play around in doing right by the people I love: I will be back to make this up to you.

Thank you for your understanding and again I am really really sorry. Love to you all

John D.

The Mountain Goats played Webster & Music Hall just the other day. They end their current tour at the Black Cat in Washington DC tonight (March 22), and then they're coming back to Brooklyn to play an Aids Walk benefit show with John Oliver on May 16th at the Masonic Temple in Fort Green. Tickets are on sale (thx Hiro).

For more Mtn Goats, check out a feature on NPR and an article at the Guardian about his love for monsters and Black Sabbath.

saw him Thursday night in Philly. Right before he played his last song he said "I'm not in a good state"
