Morrissey Postpones Another Show
This is going to get old real quick. Remember yesterday when we wrote about Morrissey canceling his Atlanta concert for the fourth time? And we pretty much implied that we hope this doesn’t become habit again for the crabby/sickly singer? Well, guess who just postponed another show.
“As Morrissey and the touring party recover from a virus, the engagement in Atlantic City at the Revel Ovation Hall has been postponed to Sunday, June 22,” reads the update. “All previously purchased tickets will be honored on the new date. The tour will resume as originally scheduled, without question, at the Boston Opera House on Saturday, June 7.”
Morrissey canceled last night’s show in Atlanta after he, some of his bandmates and road crew and maybe even his tour’s opening act all came down with some sort of mysterious virus. If this all sounds familiar, fans might recall the singer’s many, many cancellations and postponements that started in late 2012.
First, his mom got sick, so he canceled some shows. Then he got a bladder infection that turned out to be a bleeding ulcer. Then he had something called Barrett’s esophagus, which we’re still not clear on. All that led to a whole bunch of no-shows for Morrissey.
With his new album, ‘World Peace Is None of Your Business,’ due on July 15, he better get well soon. He’s gonna need to promote the hell out of the record. Nancy Sinatra and Pamela Anderson can’t do all the work for him.
Or maybe they can?
