Mads spoke with MGMT's manager about their last minute cancellation and the state of singer/guitarist Andrew VanWyngarden. Here is an official statement:
MGMT were very disappointed as well not to be able to play for the Vassar College students and do a gig with MIA [...] Every endeavor was made to try to pull off last nite's show for Vassar, but after an afternoon visit to a doctor in the Poughkeepsie area, Andrew was diagnosed with walking pneumonia and placed on bed rest and given proper anti-biotics. We were forced to cancel tonite's show at Dartmouth and tomorrow nite in Burlington, VT is an unknown. We apologize for the inconvenience and last minute notification, but rock bands are human [...] We hope those that attended were treated to a great show by MIA and MGMT hopes to make up the show to the Vassar College students soon.
