Mogwai @ MHOW in 2009 (more by Ryan Muir)
Mogwai

Mogwai says:

It is with the utmost regret that for medical reasons we have to postpone our American shows this week and cancel the I'll Be Your Mirror performance. We will announce new dates as soon as possible and apologise for the last minute nature of this announcement.

Mogwai

Damn, I hope everything is ok. Mogwai were scheduled to play already-rescheduled shows at Webster Hall on Monday and Tuesday (with the Soft Moon) and ATP over the weekend. (thx Hiro)

bittersweet. now i don't have to be completely broke after/if i score Radiohead tixs...

That's fucking weak. Think they'll fuck around with the lineup/schedule on Saturday in Asbury Park?

Fuuuuck

@705pm you mean on Sunday? I think they were supposed to play Sunday....and yes. Godspeed!

Seriously bummed about Mogwai. Who do I watch now, fucking Public Enemy performing for middle aged white people? No thanks.

Posted by Anonymous | September 25, 2011 7:24 PM

Radiohead will fill the slot quite nicely

Posted by Anonymous | September 25, 2011 7:25 PM

This sucks. I saw Mogwai earlier this year at Primavera and they are really on the top of their live game. Hopefully, ATP can pull a rabbit out of its hat. Maybe a late addition such as Caribou or the Liars. That would be dope.

Posted by Anonymous | September 25, 2011 7:46 PM

fuck. really hope they're ok. i've been pining for smore since apw 2009.... come back!

Posted by Anonymous | September 25, 2011 8:02 PM

must be bad, because this will cost them ALOT of scrill. not to mention upset promoters at having to deal with cancellations twice in one year. hope its nothing serious that affects the future of the band

Posted by Anonymous | September 25, 2011 9:13 PM

six months later really waiting for this one.... and again? just a little disappointing, though i wish all the health out in the world to them.

Posted by twice? | September 25, 2011 9:41 PM

First, best wishes of good health and smooth recovery to Mogwai.

Next, any guesses of a replacement for their ATP slot???


Panda Bear?
GYBE?
Radiohead???

Goddamnit, So much for finally getting to see a show on my Birthday!

Posted by Anonymous | September 25, 2011 9:50 PM

Yes this is disappointing but please act mature and realize why these shows were canceled.

major health concern = serious, big deal

you missing a concert = Nobody fucking cares!

Posted by Anonymous | September 25, 2011 9:54 PM

the first time this was cancelled was for passport issues. the second time , this time, was health. the drum player has a heart condition, so its always concerning.

Posted by herod | September 25, 2011 10:47 PM

get well soon. This band is worth waiting for.

I'd imagine Mogwai being interesting to see live, not your run of the mill show. Just standing there taking in the thundering guitars..

Posted by Stephen Whitfield | September 26, 2011 1:17 AM

i look sooooo good with that guitar in my hand! right, dana?

Posted by ME | September 26, 2011 2:08 AM

Bummer! This sucks but It's understandable. I hope everything is alright.

Are refunds available at the point of purchase?

Posted by Anonymous | September 26, 2011 9:16 AM

ATP 3 day passes are down to $100 on StubHub.

When can I get a refund for this disaster of a festival lineup?

Posted by Anonymous | September 26, 2011 9:43 AM

^ it won't be a disaster when the replacement act is announced. get the cheap tix while you can

Posted by Anonymous | September 26, 2011 11:55 AM

Isn't it obvious? Spins will be the replacement act - their practice before the big one at the Bowl.

Posted by Anonymous | September 26, 2011 12:21 PM

Though re-sale prices were plummeting even before Mogwai cancelled. You literally can't give these tickets away right now.

I agree with the free market, this is an underwhelming festival lineup, but $100 for Jeff Mangum + Portishead is insane - even w/the inconvenience of taking a train back and forth.

Posted by Anonymous | September 26, 2011 12:23 PM

So are Soft Moon still playing anywhere?

Posted by Anonymous | September 26, 2011 1:28 PM

was scheduled to go in april then the new date clashed with the swan show... so bought a monday ticket for mogwai and a tuesday ticket for swans... so now i get all my mogwai money back and see the swans tomorrow... complicated... but still wanna see mogwai...

Posted by Anonymous | September 26, 2011 3:33 PM

mogwai dropping out does put a hole in the lineup for sunday, this is true. however, there is still a LOT of good music to see over the course of the weekend, and, as usual, idiots bad-mouthing atp, on par with idiots bad-mouthing radiohead, have no clue about good music or good times. stay home, mouth-breathers.

Posted by Anonymous | September 26, 2011 3:34 PM

Mogwai slot to be filled by Peter Hook playing Closer in it's entirety.

You heard it here first.

Posted by Anonymous | September 26, 2011 3:47 PM

I think the "resale plummet" has to do with the fact that the "non-transferable" status of these tickets is increasingly publicized each year.

You can't just flip these like a fucking Kings of Leon ticket. It's a commitment to go to something awesome. "Shit comes up" is an excuse if there's like a death in the family, or you get hit by a bus.

Not "well I thought I could do something, and then I spent money on it, and then I found out it could be hard, and I decided my boss is mean, so I'd be slightly late on Friday", or whatever fucking other sob story people come up with.

So far ATP just moved the start time back in the Convention Hall schedule. No replacement for Mogwai?

Posted by Anonymous | September 26, 2011 7:21 PM

Yes 7:21, that and extended Public Enemy to 2 hours.

So they squandered one headliner by paying Jeff Mangum to play again Sunday, which no one bought tickets for, and have now lost another headliner that they're not replacing.

Wherever paid $270 a ticket for this got fucked.

Posted by Anonymous | September 26, 2011 8:37 PM

i wouldn't say "got fucked," exactly. losing mogwai hurts, but i'm still looking at 6 hours of extremely worthwhile live music each of the three days, give or take.

Posted by Anonymous | September 27, 2011 1:27 PM

ATP isn't worth the price now

Posted by Anonymous | September 27, 2011 1:41 PM

USA won't be seeing 'Gwai till 2012. Like a year after. When the world's all over.

Posted by 'gwai in 12 | September 27, 2011 8:41 PM

Its really too bad they weren't able to pull together another headliner to replace Mogwai. I'm not sure that an extra hour of public enemy does it

Posted by Anonymous | September 28, 2011 12:52 PM

F'ing ridiculous. I've had tickets for a DC show since April.

Posted by OX4 | September 28, 2011 7:08 PM

Portishead is worth $100 to see you noobs

No Mogwai tonight at HoB Boston....not so good

Get well soon Mogwai Drummer

Posted by kalm | October 1, 2011 10:03 AM

got my money back for the show from monday - last time i was able to switch - hope they reschedule next year

Posted by Anonymous | October 1, 2011 10:46 AM

Mogwai got greedy and our now paying for it. They were going to tour the east coast around ATP regardless of the previous cancellation. Instead of pushing out the initial shows a month or so, they decided to cancel. There was no postponement, it was a cancellation.

Posted by Anonymous | October 1, 2011 2:00 PM

Mogwai already had committed to touring Europe for much the summer prior to the initial cancellations. Had nothing to do with greed. Just the pragmatics of touring, and how far in advance shows need to be scheduled.

I would love to see this.
