Recently McCartney said he wanted to do "more dancey songs with MGMT" well that may be coming soon.

Brooklyn based alternative/pop/rock ensemble MGMT are set to directly support Sir Paul McCartney for two special shows at Boston’s Fenway Park on August 5th and 6th. News of McCartney’s admiration for MGMT broke in early June. Tickets for this special show go on sale to the public beginning Monday June 29, 2009 at 10a.m. EST at http://bit.ly/5eyHc & at the Orpheum Theatre Box Office or by calling (800) 514-3849. Tickets are not available for purchase at Fenway Park.

MGMT recently performed at The 2009 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, TN. Their 2am set on the morning of Saturday June 13th had press heralding their performance as the highlight of the festival. Spin.com playfully declared “Sorry, Mr. Springsteen and Mr. Anastasio: MGMT were headlining Bonnaroo -- and everybody knew it.” MGMT are also set to headline a sold-out show in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park on Wednesday July 1. The band will also perform at the All Points West Music and Arts Festival at Liberty State Park in New Jersey on Sunday August 2.

MGMT released their debut album, Oracular Spectacular, in January 2008 and was immediately heralded by press for it’s inventive and exceptional sound. The band spent all of last year touring the globe, building a worldwide fanbase, performing on French television dressed as pilgrims, and gaining the admiration of such musical revolutionaries as Prince, Jay-Z, Radiohead and Beck to name a few. Oracular Spectacular has gone on to sell more than 1.5 million copies worldwide. A long awaited video for their song “Kids” was recently premiered on the band’s whoismgmt.com website.

I read somewhere that some guy was at a festival and he saw Thom Yorke dancing to MGMT while they were playing or something.

Does anyone think the fact they're opening for Macca is much weirder than the whole potential collaboration?

If you were at That Tent from 2:15am-3:45am two weeks ago at Bonnaroo you would be saying something completely different

Everyone I know who saw them at Bonnaroo said they sucked.
