Unhappy Mogwai cancel all remaining tour dates

From Mogwai's website:
US/Canada dates cancelled

We are sad to announce that we have had to cancel our remaining American and Canadian shows due to ill health. Our other dates in Europe and Japan will be going ahead as planned. We will re-schedule the shows in 2009.

Martin explains what happened

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.

It's still Mogwai, you want to see them at least once a year. Thank God they'll still come to Austria. Phew.

It was my tenth time seeing them, and I hadn't seen them since 2003. They're still great at what they do, so yeah, you could probably say it was a good show.

Personally, I'm not into the post-rock type any more. I probably won't go see them again.

Wow, that's a lot. I've seen them once (at La Zona Rosa in 2005 I think) and it was pretty good.

A friend and I followed them for five shows in 2002, so that helped add to the count. Road trips were nice when gas wasn't so high.
