Mogwai have been forced to cancel their show at the ABC tomorrow along with a date scheduled for St Petersburg this weekend. Drummer Martin Bulloch has developed a severe case of tendonitis and has been advised by doctors to cancel all future gigs until his condition improves.
Both Mogwai and the ABC are devastated by the news and wish to apologise to all of the fans who purchased tickets for the sold-out show.
Rather than simply postponing the opening night of the brand new venue, described by Billy Sloan as “one of Scotland’s best”, the ABC has re-programmed the night to offer ticket purchasers, invited guests and press the opportunity to come along and enjoy the opening night at the ABC for free.
Carefully designed to provide the next best thing to a live Mogwai gig, the venue has pulled in artists that include Mogwai’s favourite bands and DJs alongside a DJ set from Mogwai themselves.
The line up for tomorrow includes:
Mogwai’s favourite band
Signed to Mogwai’s label, Rock Action
DJ sets from MOGWAI, NOJ (Mogwai’s tour DJ) and TWITCH & WILKES (Optimo)
In addition, tickets for tomorrow's gig can also be used to gain entry to the rescheduled Mogwai gig at the ABC later on in the year. Unfortunately, Mogwai are unable to confirm a date at this time, but we will update you as soon as the information is made available. Fans can also text keyword “MOGWAI” to 07766404142 to receive a SMS with info on the new gig date as soon as it’s announced.
Effectively offering all those with tickets the opportunity to enjoy two nights at the ABC, venue owners and the band hope that this will help to appease fans inconvenienced by this incredibly unfortunate and unavoidable situation.
