      My hopes of Morrissey swinging by Asia meaning he would tour Australia are definitely over now. All I can say is I'm glad he toured here in 2002 with Boz, Alain and Gaz. No Spencer then but Deano was ok. They all wore their own clothes and had their own style. And what a set list! Viva Hate, Bona Drag, Vauxhall and The Smiths! Spoiled for choice. Other than AIMMN the new songs don't excite me too much and the possibility of seeing Boz dressed as a woman and the rest of them in tiny yellow shorts I think I'll pass Mozzer has still got it but some of it has definitely slipped away.

      - marred.

      Can anyone find an angle in this story on which to criticise him? 3rd date = money-grabbing? 3rd date = too many dates>bound to cancel??

      I agree with the first post. Back when he toured with Gary, Boz, and Alain,--Spencer as well, those were quality tours. I would not pay to see the ridiculous things he does with his band.

      Well, I, for one, use this site primarily for tour updates, although the information, rarities, and items of nostalgia are fun as well. That having been said, every day I check in, hoping to find some announcement about a tour in the eastern US, and every day I come away disappointed. So, is the US leg officially over now? Nice to see our man Moz satiating the need for his fans in Asia and South America. But, will he never swing back by the states again on this tour, and play places such as New York, Philadelphia, and Boston? I know, my guess is as good as yours. But, in this regard, no news is bad news. Much is made by the Morrissey camp about record deals, representation, and management (or lack thereof). Could those factors be what's keeping Morrissey away from that part of the US? Please, someone enlighten me. I need reasons! But, more importantly, I need some tour dates closer to my neck of the woods!

      Also, what's with a new album?

      Capacity at that venue is only 763. Pathetic, that he can't secure a larger venue than that in the 2nd most populated city in the world!

      I think you'll find according to everyone's favourite website, whackapaedophile, Tokyo is ranked 13th in the world's most populated cities. Karachi is 2nd (or Chennai is if you are judging by density).

      I bought 3 quick pick lotto tickets hopefully worth $200 million paid over the course of 30 years in the hope of seeing this show.

      I love my man. I love my family. I'm so far away from you. Enough talking, just make yourself happy Moz, if you want to be happy. Not so cool to sing sadness all the time. May you'll find happiness in your own way. Good-bye.

      as for a new album, he has two albums worth of material but no album deal (i'm picturing morrissey being a total prick and unwilling to compromise at these record label negotiations) .. morrissey tends to cancel alot of his east coast gigs maybe it's the weather or the lack of poor ticket sales.. i don't know.

      Well, why should he tour America, you had your fair share a few years ago, a nice gig in London or the Hop Farm again to round it off would be nice.

      Morrissey's east coast shows are always well-attended. I have seen shows up-and-down the east coast over the years (and elsewhere) and the crowds are always at or near capacity. So this argument is complete junk. There were rumors of some east coast dates awhile back for the June timeframe. If he is smart, he'll do at least a handful of NYC-area shows. He'd make a killing with a residency at the Hammerstein Ballroom again.

      And for the record, Morrissey gets paid the same if a venue is 100% full or 50% full. It's the promoter who wins or loses. Morrissey does not play for a percentage of the door.
