Concert canceled at Outlaw Field in Boise

Headed to the Modest Mouse concert Wednesday at Outlaw Field?

Change of plans.

The show at the Idaho Botanical Garden’s outdoor venue just got canceled — or possibly postponed, if you’re willing to wait until next year.

Here’s the statement from the band: “Due to the unexpected timing of the birth of a child in the Modest Mouse family, the band have to cancel their appearance in Boise tomorrow. Modest Mouse are truly sorry for the late notice and inconvenience but promise to return soon with a makeup performance. Please stay tuned for an announcement of a new date in 2020 and tickets purchased for tomorrow’s show will be honored for the rescheduled date. In the meantime, refunds can be honored at point of purchase.”

Concert fans still have two more opportunities to visit Outlaw Field this season — for Rufus du Sol on Sept. 26 and Dropkick Murphys and Clutch on Oct. 14.

In related news, the Social Distortion and Flogging Molly concert scheduled Wednesday for the Ford Idaho Center Amphitheater in Nampa has been moved indoors to the Ford Idaho Center arena. The reason? Rain is in the forecast.
