Tomorrow Night’s Interpol Show Cancelled Because the Wellmont Theater is Falling Apart

Man, these dudes just cannot catch a break. First they lost their blazingly talented bassist, then they had their opening slot on a tour with U2 fall through because Bono’s bones are growing brittle, and now they’ve had to cancel their show tomorrow night at the Wellmont Theater because… the plaster on the ceiling needs to be repaired? The Bowery Presents press release:

The Wellmont Theater will be closed to repair portions of the plaster ceiling finishes. The owners and leaseholders of the Wellmont are working closely with the Montclair building department and an independent contractor, following an incident last week when it was discovered that repairs were necessary to ensure patron safety. As a result, the Interpol concert scheduled for Wednesday, August 4 has been postponed. The Wellmont looks forward to upcoming shows with Lyle Lovett, Counting Crows, Tears for Fears and many others. For information and updates on concerts, please check the website at

So don’t worry, kids. They’ll be open in time for the Counting Crows show.

  • When I saw Wolf Parade there last year (or maybe it was two years ago), plaster fell from the ceiling during “Modern World” and almost hit Dan’s head/Spencer’s keyboard. Just wanted to pass that along, for visual effect.
