Mogwai have announced they’re moving their UK and European shows to spring.
The Glasgow band were due to start their tour on January 27 in Milan, with a date scheduled at London’s Alexandra Palace on February 25. However, they have now pushed back the gigs to April and May due to the current surge in cases of the Omicron variant of COVID-19.
The band will now start their tour in Copenhagen on April 30, heading to London’s Alexandra Palace on May 27. All original tickets will remain valid, however a new date for their Utrecht show is still to be confirmed. Find tickets here.
The upcoming tour will follow the band’s North American dates, which start on April 5 in Washington, DC, rolling through a further 13 US and two Canadian cities before wrapping up in San Diego on Sunday April 24.
In order to navigate the ongoing COVID-19 situation, our Jan/Feb EU tour dates have been moved to April/May this year.
All original tickets remain valid. Visit https://t.co/IfnoNVjkvJ for more info.

In October, they won the 2021 Scottish Album Of The Year (SAY) award for ‘As The Love Continues’, beating out the likes of Biffy Clyro, Stanley Odd and The Snuts, and were also nominated for the 2021 Mercury Prize.
