MGMT’s ‘special surprise announcement’ revealed as last-minute San Francisco show

Band will play The Independent tomorrow (October 16)

MGMT have revealed their “special surprise announcement” as being a last-minute headline show in San Francisco.

Already in the area to play at the Treasure Island Music Festival, the band had earlier made a cryptic announcement via their MySpace blog asking fans to stay tuned.

“We are playing a headline show at The Independent in San Francisco on Friday October 16,” revealed the band’s MySpace blog. They also provided the fans with a link and password to obtain pre-sale and general tickets to the show.

After the blog was posted the show quickly sold out, leaving those who want to see the duo in the San Francisco area having to head to the Treasure Island Music Festival, where tickets are still available.
