What Morrissey and his Mexican fans tell us about music fandom | Gabriel Avalos | TEDxWhitneyHigh

Description:
Published on Sep 8, 2017

"Every once and a while there is a certain artist and their fan following that breaks these conventional rules. They actually end up reversing the roles and instead the fans end up defining the artist.” Gabriel Avalos is currently a junior at Whitney High School where he is constantly busy and trying to do it all. He has a passion for politics and is involved with the Association of Latin American Students, Mock Trial, Model United Nations, and Junior State of America. When not working with those clubs or doing something for school, he is always listening to music. Gabriel's favorite artists range from The Beatles to Arcade Fire, David Bowie to Kanye West, Radiohead to Neutral Milk Hotel, and even My Bloody Valentine to Carly Rae Jepsen. If you're interested in listening to some of the music by Morrissey...
I have it on good authority that the Forum is off. First, I work there. Second, KROQ informed upper management of The Madison Square Garden Company (which I am a part of) - the owners of the Forum. Third, "Sad Girl" posted the show on their website and said they were "pleased as punch" to be playing Almost Acoustic X-Mas. Why is this main page worthy? Because many people on the thread are planning on traveling. Most hotels offer refunds if cancellation is done 24 hours in advance. I feel the fans have a right to know. Given the weather in So. Cal., I am concerned for the safety of the community. The show is 100% off


Reference to original post in the Boston cancellation thread by Anony:

I work at the Forum in Inglewood. KROQ has just informed us that MORRISSEY will not be headlining the second...
For all those who have doubted me, abused me and confused me, I'm still willing to share...

Low In High School is out of the Billboard 200 charts (Dec. 16, 2017) in its second week.

Posted by an anonymous person:

...but it's #74 in Billboard's Top Selling Albums this week - https://www.billboard.com/charts/top-album-sales (drop from #11 last week)

Obv, this does not include streams, etc which the Billboard 200 does.
