The Opera House
Scottish rock titans, Mogwai, bring their legendary live ferocity to Wellington’s The Opera House in February. The band will present their UK 2021 number one album ‘As The Love Continues’, as well as classic Mogwai tracks from their innovative career.
Mogwai is known for thunderous music and intense live performances that captivate audiences. Considered by many as the blueprint of what an independent group should be, their left-field music attracts critical acclaim and a loyal fanbase. Their tenth album, ‘As The Love Continues’, reached number one in the UK album charts. It was also nominated for a Mercury Music Prize, and won the Scottish Album of The Year Award.
Witnessing Mogwai perform live is a fully immersive experience. They shift seamlessly from tranquil melodies and atmospheric soundscapes to pile-driving headbangers and pummelling earthquake riffs. “It quietens almost to silence, and then the sonic onslaught begins, and for a moment, slamming my head to the downbeat, I’m in a packed room, feeling the heat and the sweat of what music can do. I can almost taste it. When the moment commands it, Mogwai still take you there.” (The Guardian)
