  • Lucky that I was looking for posts to see what time Moz has been coming on stage during this tour and stumbled upon the cancellation story.

    It's 17.25 and still no SMS or email confirming cancellation, so I imagine lots of people will now be travelling to the RAH unawares, at great cost to themselves when a text message a few hours ago from seetickets or whoever else could have spared them.

    After my Roundhouse experience at the abandoned show and then the subsequent cancelled and not re-scheduled shows, my enthusiasm for Morrissey is waning...the gloss is peeling off.

    We got in a tour of the Royal Albert Hall where the guide was sympathetic, having herself been looking forward to the sold-out show. It's a magnificent hall, and the roof was built in, and then transported from, Manchester nearly 140 years ago! So when he does the make-up show, he should feel quite at home there. : )

  • I think Moz needs to realize he's no spring chicken any longer. At his age, he should not be taking on long rigorous tours. He should do what some of the other dino-rockers do and play fewer shows but at bigger venues. Although, nothing beats Moz at a small venue, and I believe he prefers it too, he just can't do it any longer at 50. He could probably do 2 hour plus shows if he did one every weekend or so. But playing every night is causing him to perform badly on a consistent basis now. Just my two cents.

  • Gutted...I was really looking forward to this concert...in a legendary London landmark venue, Morrissey's first London gig since Hyde Park 2008?

    Anyway, it's selfish to "want want want"...if Mozzy is sick so then be it. Simple as.

    But over the years Mozzer has had more sick-days than I have! Maybe it's the time to concentrate on "high profile" shows only, ie. recidencies in places like London Palladium, Blackpool Empress Ballroom, Manchester Opera Hall, etc.

    As a travelling artist he is open to all sorts of germs: lack of sleep, germs and humidity of sweaty concert venues, shaking people's hands, flying on planes, etc. No wonder he wants to have fresh vegetarian food available at all times.

  • Like most of Moz's fans, I am disappointed that the concert tonight was cancelled. It can't be helped if Moz is ill. Perhaps the solution for Moz is to spread his gigs out a bit giving him time to stay fit & healthy.

    I have noticed that SJM has issued the apology on behalf of Morrissey. However I think it would be appropriate if Morrissey personally issued an apology on his website to his fans. I've noticed that that there was no apology from his last cancellation at the Roundhouse last year. Is Morrissey aware that a lot of his fans are from abroad & have paid for flights, booked hotels, & also have travel & food expenses meaning they have spent a lot of money. It would be nice of Morrissey to acknowledge this.

    Like many other fans, this is the 2nd time I have encountered a cancellation in London. The silence is deafening from Morrissey & I am beginning to wonder if he really does respect or care about his fans.

    Over to you Morrissey & get well soon mate.

  • Just got back after my pointless 8-hour round trip to my front door via The Royal Albert Hall.

    Still - that's nowhere near as bad as a couple who had flown in from Italy to see him. Their return flight leaves tomorrow so no chance of them seeing him in Brum (if he plays there). Can you imagine? Poor people. The woman said, "I hope he has swine 'flu."

    EVEN WORSE... were two friends who had come from America. They were obviously culture vultures - over here to see museums and galleries but they had planned their trip around Morrissey's Albert Hall gig. I felt so sorry for them - they had spent the afternoon wondering what might be on his set list.

    If he's playing Brum, I shall go there, if I can get a ticket - only 40 minutes from my door, but hey, where would rather see him? RAH or Brum? Hmmm? Tricky one, huh? and it was a 40th birthday treat. Blast and botheration

    I certainly don't hold him being ill against him - if the guy's ill, there's not a lot to be done about it. However - an email/text earlier in the day would have spared me all that driving.

  • I have something to say. My baby is sick, and I would just like to say that I hope he gets that much much needed, justified R & R. When we are over forty, like me, it gets harder. I can’t pretend it gets easier. He’s been touring for months. I couldn’t do it. It’s something that I always admired about Morrissey. One of the very few things that I couldn’t say mmmm … I, well, what I mean is, I want to have that energy, strength, mind set to travel like that, but I can’t. Maybe when I was in Oneonta, I could. Anyway, I always found that trait very admirable and hero-istic about him. But let’s face it, no one can be a carbon copy of another. No, yes, no. Yes. I want to.

    And also, shaking people’s hands. Now, Morrissey, I didn’t care that I got his germs, DNA, whatever on numerous occasions. Soooo, I love his germs, I need them, I want them. They're mine. But I don’t love anybody else’s germs. I don’t like anyone else.

    Still, I know how you feel and it’s awful. Like for me, something is squeezing my skull, something I can barely describe. And I’m not even kidding. And at midnight, I, I can’t get you out of my head.

    Avoid their germs, you could use Dial anti bacterial soap right after the songs and scrub your hands with burning hot water. Better still, don’t shake or hold on hands. Hold on to yor friends. Yor health is more important. Even if it seems rude. Because, let’s face it, you are not rude. Sooo who cares what anyone else thinks.
    And to the so called “fans” – give my baby a break. Young man – one day – you will be old. Then like Me. Not 750. 1975. Dial a cliché. MmmmHmmm … and you need to realize stress makes everything worse. Dial a cliché. So, let me be as perfectly clear here as you can possibly understand it, my baby is very sick. He doesn’t lie.

    So, have some compassion. I’m talking to the good people. I know, I know there are a few on here.
    *looking around*. Respond.

    Well, OK, before we meet again. Also, BrummieBoy, aka Einstein-if you are on here, or having your friend, friends, or secretary reading this, I would just like to say I miss you and I hope to hear from you. You understand Einstein?. Mmmmm.

    And, and I know you’ll say a little prayer that Morrissey is taking the proper right medications, the right companies, and that he doesn’t have to get the bad side effects of the bad medications, companies. We know you can make him feel better. I cannot reach you anymore. Even now, in the final hour, of my life …, I’m falling in love … again.

  • The Morrissey sucker train continues to roll on. Seeing Morrissey live is probably the most physical activity that his remaining fanbase will get all decade.

    There are few things that are worse than continuing to peddle uninspired material that is only meant to pad the pocket, and that's not being able to finish a standard tour without a series of cancellations.

    Not only has Morrissey been unable to make it all the way through yet another tour, but he might be setting some records with this one.

    I never imagined that Morrissey's career would become such a clumsy, and embarrassing affair. Someone needs to stop him before he hammers the final nail in the coffin. He clearly is not sensible enough to make his own decisions about touring, and God knows what else. He needs a handler, like his mum, but someone who is not afraid to speak to him like an adult.

    I know. It's not going to happen, but I'm just trying to help.

    I knocked Morrissey when I saw the picture of him at the Kristeen Young concert, and quite rightly too! But so far I haven't seen a photo of him slumming it with the oldies down at Mecca bingo so I'm taking this situation at face value.
    The Royal Albert was a sell out so I can't see any reason to postpone it due to 'lack of ticket sales', not that he's ever admitted such a thing!

    Who knows with Morrissey. The man is a walking, talking mystery. But yes, a lovable mystery.

  • Morrissey has been sick for two months. Obviously he has an illness that requires him to rest, but he can't, not properly, because of the tour. All this talk about how he's nearly 50 and needs to slow down is silly. He is, when well, quite fit. It's not the age. He may not be happy about turning 50, but I don't think it's slowing him down. Morrissey has ALWAYS been one to get sick. This is something we know and should be used to by now.

    It's truly a gamble to be a Morrissey fan. I feel bad for all of you who were looking forward to the show because I know how you feel. But, he'll be back and he'll deliver...he always does.

    And to the person who said the woman from Italy said she hopes he has swine flu...well, I hope she knows Karma is hell.

I waited around until about half past nine as one of the RAH workers said Morrissey was turning up to collect some of his personal belongings. Low and behold three minutes past ten there he was, pissed as a fart and wielding what looked like some sort of frankfurter in a bun, shouting obscenities at all and sundry and urinating in the street. I can't tell you how appalled i was. I cried and cried and cried....I was so upset...Although i must admit i didnt have my glasses on and it was dusk, so it could have been Ledley King....I went to the wimpy to cheer myself up and had a milkshake....which was nice!

  • I am very sorry for all involved in this one,it absolutely sucks!I don't even want to think about if he is or is not sick,but this show had to be full,right?I wasn't going,no particular reason,but i would ask one thing.Please re-sked in order of previously "cancelled/postponed" gigs.I don't think i am asking too much,just some recent years.Start with,but not limited to..
    1. All 4 florida shows,may change order if needed
    2. The last,what 4,5,6 of the Palladium shows
    3. Madison Square Garden !
    4. Miami,Roadhouse,Oakland /really sick?/
    5. Shit,i know there is more....
    Anyways,as you can see,i have slightly mysterious bruises as well.Besides cancer or something really serious,what is worse than the high you get,going to see a great live show,and then BOOM? Too rub it all in,some good folks actually find out AT THE VENUE,a punch in the face!Good luck all on getting these shows back,i wish you all a speedy recovery.

  • The BSH website says 13th is cancelled. Cheers Moz you half-weight, now I ve gotta try and get an extortionate amount of money back from some low life ebay tout. Time to hang up your pen - only wanted to hear your stuff written 10 -20 years back. What a loser you are! Hope your illness is nothing trivial!!

  • It's official. I work here at Symphony Hall. Morrissey has cancelled tomorrow night's gig at Birmingham. They're trying to reschedule something for Autumn.
    Until a date is decided, it's best to keep hold of your tickets.
    Thought it best to tell you all asap.

  • I know that we are all disappointed. I, myself have had Moz cancel on me numerous times, all at the last minute, and the cancellations about broke my heart after months of anticipation. But, instead of spouting mean spirited posts, let's think about this. Morrissey is almost 50 and his material is very demanding. Maybe we should all be mad at the folks who scheduled this tour, with shows night after night, with little break in between. Just a thought!
