Morrissey cancels two more shows on US tour

By | Published on Wednesday 23 November 2022


Morrissey has cancelled two more shows on his North American tour, this time citing “band illness”, and also having the courtesy of doing it before either show has started. Although still not with much notice.

Last night’s show in Salt Lake City and tonight’s in Denver were pulled yesterday, with a statement on social media reading: “Due to band illness, we are devastated to announce that we cannot proceed with tonight’s show … and tomorrow’s”.

“Thank you to the fans for the ongoing love and support while we take a moment to restore and recover”, it went on. “All being well, M and the band will be back on stage on Friday night. Show refunds are available at your point of purchase”.

Earlier this month, Morrissey decided to postpone a show in LA after he’d already been on stage for 30 minutes. No clear reason was given for the decision to cut that performance short, although it was reported that it was due to the singer being too cold.

Also postponed recently was the release of Morrissey’s new album, ‘Bonfire Of Teenagers’. A statement on his website announced: “’Bonfire of Teenagers’ is no longer scheduled for a February release, as stated by this site. Its fate is exclusively in the hands of Capitol Records (Los Angeles)”.

It was announced last month that Universal Music’s Capitol label would be releasing the album in the US. It’s not clear if the delay on that release means the Moz has had another falling out with a Universal label or there is some other issue.
