Mogwai Tour Canceled, Martin Bulloch Hospitalized

posted by on September 23 at 14:14 PM

Bulloch says, via Mogwai’s website:

I was taken into hospital last night almost immediately after the show at ATP. I’ve been having some problems with my pacemaker for the duration of the tour and it unfortunately culminated in me being sent to the emergency room. The doctors there initially thought i would have to have corrective surgery at a larger hospital nearer NYC but i have been given the all clear to travel home on the understanding that i go straight to my cardiologist on arrival back in Scotland.

Tbh, i’m really bummed about having to go home and feel for the folk who had bought tickets for our upcoming shows but i can honestly say it would be almost impossible for me to carry on at this point as my pacemaker has broken skin and the surrounding area has become infected.

The rest of the US and Canadian tour dates have been canceled, but the Japan and European dates will go on as planned. The canceled shows will be rescheduled for 2009.
