Just came across this while looking for a download of the UCLA '91 gig.
Interesting to hear the full account.
"He invited people forward," UCLA spokeswoman Celesta Billeci said. "At the point he did that, everything fell apart. . . . Once an artist does that, it's a little difficult to stop it."
Avalon Attractions President Brian Murphy, who promoted the concert, agreed.
"The show was going along wonderfully up to that point," Murphy said. "This was a crowd that really idolizes the artist. I think they would have done whatever he asked. . . . So when he said come on forward, that's what they did."
After the concert was halted, the promoter said that Morrissey agonized about his mistake and whether he should go back out and talk to the crowd.
