Morrissey Cancels Shows Due To ‘Illness’

Morrissey is coming with news that will upset his fans one after the other these days. Earlier this month, he announced that his forthcoming album ‘Bonfire Of Teenagers’ would not be released on the scheduled date and put the responsibility on the record company. Now, in a statement he shared on his Instagram account, he announced that two dates of his ongoing tour were canceled due to illness.

“Due to band illness, we are devastated to announce we cannot proceed with tonight’s show in Salt Lake City and tomorrow’s show in Denver,” he wrote, announcing the canceled concerts. “Thank you to the fans for the ongoing love and support while we take a moment to restore and recover. All being well, Morrissey and the band will be back on stage in Minneapolis on Friday night. Show refunds are available at your point of purchase.”

Morrissey shared details of his US headline tour in mid-September, which would continue throughout November and December. However, while Morrissey was on the road, mishaps followed. First, when he was performing in LA on the night of November 12, he interrupted the performance and left the stage nine songs before the end of the setlist ‘due to unforeseen circumstances.’ Then, the sad news about his forthcoming album came. And now, this cancellation has been announced.

He had initially set out to support the ‘Bonfire Of Teenagers,’ whose fate is still unknown. Almost half of the songs in this album were played live in concerts within the scope of the tour. He started in California on November 11 and was on the road for about two weeks in different cities. After this short break, the tour is expected to be recommenced at Fillmore in Minneapolis on Friday evening, November 25.
