MGMT UK and Ireland tour dates

By | Published on Thursday 8 April 2010

MGMT will be over in the UK and Ireland in September as part of their upcoming world tour, which is already under way.

The band will, obviously, be working to promote their second, opinion-dividing album, ‘Congratulations’, which they say was influenced by a mixture of confusion and brevity. Andrew VanWyngarden told Xfm: “We finished touring in December 2008 and at the end of January 2009 we started writing and recording. We really didn’t give ourselves much time. That’s why a lot of the songs are more… not cynical… we didn’t know what had happened to us and that’s what comes through in a lot of the songs”.

Tour dates:

16 Sep: Dublin, Olympia
20 Sep: Glasgow, Barrowlands
23 Sep: Birmingham, Academy
24 Sep: Bournemouth, Academy
26 Sep: Manchester, Apollo
29 Sep: London, Brixton Academy
30 Sep: London, Brixton Academy
