A Special Message from Dan Mangan
I was halfway through a two-night stand at The Danforth in Toronto when the world shut down. Hilariously, even then, I remember thinking “Well at least our April tour will still be able to happen”. That was at least five or six “new normals” ago. Think of how many new precedents have been unprecedented since then.
With no end to the pandemic in near-sight, and after already rescheduling the Nice, Nice, Very Nice 10th Anniversary Tour twice now, it has become increasingly appropriate to cancel the shows and start fresh with a new tour when we’re certain that it can actually happen.
The good news is that I’m working on a new album right now and so far, things are going swimmingly. I can’t even imagine how incredible it will feel to be back on stage. Distancing makes the heart grow fonder.
Take care of each other.
All my love,
Thank you for your patience and understanding. We look forward to gathering and celebrating the live experience together again.

Dan Mangan is a two-time JUNO award-winning & two-time Polaris Music Prize listed musician and songwriter.
2018 brings Dan’s 5th full length More or Less, an album about witnessing birth, and in some ways rebirth. It’s about feeling disconnected from a popular identity and becoming acclimated to a new one. It’s about raising kids in a turbulent world. It’s about unanswerable questions and kindness and friendship and fear. Produced by Grammy Award winning producer Drew Brown (Radiohead, Beck, Blonde Redhead, Charlotte Gainsbourg) and Simone Felice (The Lumineers, Bat For Lashes), More or Less features singles “Troubled Mind”, “Fool For Waiting” and “Just Fear”.
Aside from his own recordings, Dan has scored a feature film (starring Simon Pegg) as well as TV series for Netflix & AMC and has infrequently been a contributing writer for several international publications. Dan has toured extensively in North America, Europe and Australia. In 2017, Mangan co-founded Side Door, an online platform that connects hosts with artists for intimate performances in unique spaces. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia with his wife and two sons.
