Wednesday morning update: Morrissey announced the cancellation of the entire tour on Tuesday evening.
“It is with great sadness that the remainder of the U.S. Tour has been cancelled. The respiratory infection Morrissey contracted in Miami has worsened, and in the interest of making a full recovery, all further touring plans have been halted. Morrissey thanks his fans for their compassion, understanding, and well-wishes during this difficult period as he recuperates,” according to a statement on his official Facebook page.
Get well soon, Morrissey!
As every Morrissey fan undoubtedly already has heard, the Man from Manchester has rescheduled tonight’s performance in Baltimore and tomorrow’s performance in DC for dates two weeks later. In a statement late Monday, I.M.P. Productions, which is supporting both shows, said, “At the advice of Morrissey’s medical team, Baltimore at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall is now rescheduled for June 24 and The Lincoln Theatre in Washington, DC, is rescheduled for June 25. All tickets previously purchased will be honored for the new dates.” Shortly before the cancellation announcement, I.M.P. announced the availability of more tickets for the previously sold-out Baltimore show. As of this moment, there are still tickets remaining for that show on Tuesday, June 24. It’s definitely worth considering, as refunds will be made available if Moz cancels the date. The show at the Lincoln Theatre also had been sold out, but the rescheduling apparently has freed up tickets as refunds are issued for those who cannot make the new date. So if you were thinking of going to see Morrissey at the Lincoln on Wednesday, June 25 (and even do so in a general admission show), now also is your chance! Moz of course is promoting his new album, World Peace Is None of Your Business, on this tour. Above he appears in a promo with Pamela Anderson for the album. In an apparently unrelated development, opening act Kristeen Young has left the tour. Morrissey performed in Boston on Saturday, June 7, without an opener.
