M Ward

Due to the promoter's cancelation of the planned Music To Know Festival in East Hampton this weekend, M Ward has been forced to bow out of the East Coast leg of his current tour.

The dates affected are:

Thursday 11th August - the Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, New Jersey (w/ Kurt Vile And The Violators) - CANCELED
Friday 12th August - MASS MoCa in North Adams, Massachusetts - CANCELED

Matt Ward expressed his regret at the cancelations: "I'm extremely disappointed that Music To Know has been canceled. Without the funding we can't make the trip out there. We sincerely apologize to everyone who had already bought tickets. We'll be back as soon as we can."

Please contact point of purchase for refund details.

His management are the ones to blame here. Two nights at T5 = problem solved.

I don't get it. The festival is what was gonna make or break the rest of his tour? How much was he gonna get paid for the festival?

Or is the real reason because he can't sell tickets without Zooey's adorable little face out front.

Adorable? Yes, for about five minutes. She is very obnoxious.

good thing no one gives a shit!

The REAL important question I think is, where is Kurt Vile gonna play?

Important News Alert: Effective immediately all live shows are hereby cancelled until further notice. That saves you from having to keep re-posting all the endless barrage of cancellations.

Kind of ridiculous...honestly, if he can pay for a plane ticket, I'm sure the crowd would be happy to see him with an acoustic guitar and PA.

I blame this on Kings of Leon.

wow so many experts are here...!
people who can hardly run their own life and make ends meet...

and you too BV? what's so lame about this?

He canceled all East Coast dates, not just his own. All of them. Every show for every artist in every genre on the East Coast is canceled for the next two weeks.

normal schedules will be resumed when the SPin Doctors/Daft Punk/LCD Soundsystem show sponsored by Sabra Hummus hits t5 on August 26th. (Am I doin it right???)

Next time he comes east, he'll be the one opening for Kurt Vile.

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2011 5:33 PM

What a pussy move. This dude obv saw he wasn't going to cash out as planned so he dipped out. Good thing his music sucks anyways.

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2011 6:00 PM

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2011 6:02 PM

he makes quite a lot of money playing shows, festival or no.

this is fully arrogant and contemptuous of his fans

6:28.... YES, but what about Thursday??

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2011 8:03 PM

wellmont was going to be empty anyways. that's why he's canceling. the festival getting canceled was a lucky coincidence for him.

It's funnyhow I keep seeing ads for the M Ward Wellmont show up on the site, and this morning, I was still seeing ads for MTK.

This guy went for the cash in with Zooey and now no one cares about his solo shit.
