MGMT will perform the final show of the 2013 season on Sept. 5, but due to medical reasons special guest Foxygen will be unable to perform and has been replaced by indie-rock band Kuroma, featuring Hank Sullivant, formerly of The Whigs.
Foxygen’s management released this statement:
"Foxygen will be unable to perform at next week's Twilight Concert Series in Salt Lake City. The cancellation is directly related to injuries sustained by Sam France during a Minnesota performance in late July. Sam sustained complete fractures of the tibia and fibula. The breaks were severe enough to require surgery, involving an intramedullar nailing of the tibia and a metal rod placed in his leg. Sam is currently unable to walk unassisted, and is undergoing six weeks of physical therapy. Being massive MGMT fans, it's a true heartbreaker for the band to be unable to appear at the Twilight Concert Series. Thank you so much to our fans for your understanding, and we look forward to seeing you soon!"
