Mogwai at MHoW (more by Ryan Muir)
Mogwai

Hello all and a happy new year.

2011 was a great year for us releasing our Hardcore Will Never Die album and playing 124 shows (our busiest ever). We were constantly surprised and grateful for the support we received throughout both through people coming to see us play all over the world and the goodwill shown towards our record. The only blemish on an otherwise brilliant year was us twice having to postpone shows in North America. Firstly because of a visa delay and secondly because of ill health.

We can't apologise enough to the people who arranged travel and bought tickets to see us. Both of these postponements were completely out with our control and the shows would not have been postponed if there was anyway possible to make them happen. That said we realise fully how disappointed people were who had bought tickets only to find out very close to the shows that we were postponing. In light of this we are very happy to announce the rescheduled dates along with new dates for next May and June. It will likely be the last extensive touring we do for some time so we hope it will be a very special tour.

Tickets people still have for the original Boston and Washington DC shows will be honoured at the door.

Thanks for your patience!

Stuart Braithwaite
Mogwai
Mogwai's two NYC dates aren't just make-up shows. The Scots have announced a full tour surrounding the previously discussed dates, that will kick off in Vancouver and terminate a little less than a month later in Chicago. Tickets for all shows go on fan presale on 2/1 at 10AM in their respective time zones. Tickets for both NYC dates are also currently on presale via Ticketmaster, and go on regular sale on 2/3 at noon.

All tour dates and some videos, below.

Bonnaroo late night set on 6/9!

Uh... so according to someone on the earlier post for the NYC shows. OLD TICKETS ARE NO LONGER VALID. Thanks for letting me know, everyone involved!

Have to get a refund and buy them again. What a pain!

"Mogwai's two NYC dates aren't just make-up shows. The Scots have announced a full tour"

That was the problem the first time around. They could have arranged make-up dates, but instead they choose to wait until they were going to be back anyways for ATP. Oops.

so whats the next issue Mogwai will have if they cancelled this Tour we already have Sick Members & Passport Issue =D

Posted by Kazukovox | January 30, 2012 12:28 PM

is that true that older tickets won't be honored??

Posted by Anonymous | January 30, 2012 12:40 PM

No, it says in the message that only tickets for boston and dc are still valid. If you got them from ticketmaster you already got your money back. if you got them at the boxoffice you should have gone back months ago to get a refund

"It will likely be the last extensive touring we do for some time so we hope it will be a very special tour."

So instead of three tours to the area, NYC only gets one. At least it is not T5.

"Hardcore will never die, but your interest in us will..."


Couldn't agree more.

Entitled BV commenters act like they have some right to see this band.

Yes, come to the country RIGHT WHEN I LEAVE THE COUNTRY

Goofus acts like he has a right to see Mogwai, and when they cancel he gets angry and lashes out on the internet.

Gallant understands that the members of Mogwai are only human, and that sometimes shows must be canceled. Gallant signs on to wish them good luck, and eagerly awaits the next time Mogwai will be in town.

BONNAROO!!!!!!!!!!

I wanted to see them last year and bought a ticket at the box office. I wanted to see the rescheduled date and also see them at ATP. Now I have to go to the Mercury Lounge to get a refund, which is a pain in the ass for me.

Posted by Anonymous | January 31, 2012 1:02 AM

if getting to the lower east side is a huge pain in the ass maybe you shouldn't be going to shows in NYC

"thanks mom"

Well little fella, if you had any sense you wouldn't need to ask the same question over and over again, especially when that question is clearly answered in the body of the post.

are you the door guy at the real estate show on Saturday? you have the same douchey attitude.

Yeah, that's me man. I hope you had a really bad time on Saturday because of my surly demeanor. Get fucked and wise up.

Yeah, I couldn't get enough of you indie rock cunts, so I came here.

i figured. what better way to spend your weekends than working a show at a chinese buffet

Hey man, I got paid to be there, what's your excuse?

Posted by Anonymous | January 31, 2012 11:11 AM

interns don't get paid

Posted by Anonymous | January 31, 2012 11:17 AM

Sometimes they do, it all depends on the internship. Let's bring this back full circle, pretend I am an unpaid intern, at least I had enough common sense to get my money back months ago. So while you've been sitting on useless tickets for 4 months, I was able to put that money towards that snazzy Mets jacket you are so envious of.

What do Goofus and Gallant have to do with a token English queer?

"Goofus and Gallant's primary function is to teach children basic social skills."

You, 9:47, need to read up on your G&G.

dude i don't even have tickets to the mogwai show, but i am going nonetheless. have fun though, i will see you there!

Posted by Anonymous | January 31, 2012 1:10 PM

Cool man, I'll be the douchey asshole in the bad ass Mets jacket and the irresistible womb broom. Although, one should always stay away from douchey assholes, they are messy by nature.

this looks like a good old fashioned BB pussy fight brewing. could you all arrange to meet somewhere so the rest of us can watch?

haha I like that this dude is going through great lengths pretending to be some guy I picked at random to personify a random comment

No great lengths man, and no pussy fight. My vagina doesn't need to fight to win a pussy fight.
