Just called Variety Playhouse - Morrissey cancelled the show tonight.---

Tonight's performance in Atlanta has been canceled. This hasn't been officially announced yet, but will be in a few short hours I would hope. Without betraying any trusts, I will say this news is 100% legit.
This news should come as little surprise to those who were in attendance to last night's gig, but Morrissey's voice is gone and he would not be able to perform tonight under any condition.
I know some people will be traveling to Atlanta, so I thought it be only fair to mention the fact that the show has been canceled. This decision was reached some time last night, and I personally find it offensive that this news wasn't put out to the fans immediately, as they are the ones most affected.
Moz's PR firm "Girlie Action" is a known joke, and will no doubt spin their usual line of hastily written b.s. at the last possible minute, but take it from me —this tour is in serious trouble.
Variety Playhouse site confirms the show is cancelled. Link posted by AllYouNeedIsMoz in the forums (original post):
Tonight's show with Morrissey is cancelled.
As you probably know, the first 4 dates of the tour were cancelled due to illness. He did the show last night in Myrtle Beach and apparently had a great deal of trouble, cutting his set in half. As of now, we do not have a make-up date but hope to re-schedule for the Fall.
Refunds are available at the point of purchase.
