Mogwai To Perform Worldwide Live-streamed Gig In 2021
Mogwai have announced that they will perform a live-streamed show to celebrate the release of their upcoming new album, As The Love Continues.
Due for release on 19th February 2021, Mogwai’s new album, As The Love Continues will be their first studio album in four years, following on from Every Country’s Sun, which they released in 2017. It will be available on the band’s own label, Rock Action.
Mogwai shared details of the upcoming event on their social media platforms, describing their plans for a, “worldwide live performance”, which will be directed by Antony Crook. Crook has worked alongside the band on many occasions, including on Mogwai Japan: Knock For Knock, photos and a film Crook shot while traveling with the band across Japan in 2012, and on the sleeve artwork for the Earth Division EP and Hardcore Will Never Due, But You Will album, both issued in 2011.
'As The Love Continues' worldwide live performance premiere.
Saturday 13 February, 8pm GMT.

The concert, which is filmed and recorded at Glasgow’s Tramway arts space, will be a live, worldwide premiere of As The Love Continues on Saturday 13th February at 8pm (GMT), a whole six days before the album is available.

Digital tickets for the event are being sold on the band’s site here, for £15. The performance will be available to watch on any or all of the three broadcasts, separately timed for specific regions.
Mogwai have also stated that the show will not be available after it has taken place, so fans will have to watch it live to experience it.
