MGMT supporting Chris Knox

Great band and great cause. All the best Chris and whanau.

"Touring Brooklyn band MGMT will DJ at a fundraising night for iconic Kiwi musician Chris Knox, who suffered a stroke last month.

Knox and his reformed band The Tall Dwarfs were scheduled to open for MGMT at three sold out shows at Auckland venue The Powerstation next week.

But Knox suffered a stroke on June 11 and will be unable to perform.

After two weeks in hospital latest reports said he had returned home to relearn skills that have been impaired by his stroke.

MGMT, one of last year's biggest bands thanks to hit singles Time To Pretend and Kids, will DJ at the Bacco Room on July 20.

Tickets cost $20 and all proceeds will go towards Knox's recovery"

Great video from a fan.
