Chicago (Nov. 10) concert postponed to Dec. 17 due to a visa administration error

Press release from Girlie Action:

November 10 Morrissey Concert In Chicago Postponed

Due to a visa administration error, Morrissey’s lead guitarist is unable to perform in the US this week. Thursday’s sold out concert at the Congress Theatre in Chicago has been rescheduled for Saturday December 17, 2011. The issue is out of Morrissey’s hands but it will not affect Monday’s concert at the Majestic Theatre in San Antonio, nor will it affect the rest of the tour.

Just stop bitching, for the love of Christ.[/QUOTE]

This thread is for and all about bitching you cunt. And for the love of Christ, I would gladly nail you to a cross. Right after the idiot that is responsible for not catching the fuck up with a Visa or for not taking proper care to do it months ago when the lame ass tour was announced without a fucking NYC show.

Boz is the lead guitarist. Clearly this is about him not being able to make it into the country on time. These things happen with the immigration visa process - sometimes things pop up at the 11th hour. Hardly Morrissey's fault. At least they were able to reschedule it on to a Sat night so, I'll still plan on flying out there for the show.
No they don't pop up at the 11th hour unless you apply at the last minute and not have the proper documention/expiring passport ect. If there is a problem a US IO will call you and say we need this document/health check/interview ect and can you bring this to the US embassy in London. It's not like the UKBA, you don't fill the form right they refuse you, keep your money, and make you apply again.
Anyways isn't Alain in LA with a greencard and doesn't he know the songs?

Boz is British, so he doesn't need a Visa and can enter the USA under the Visa waiver program for 90 days, enough to see out the tour.
Unless he forgot the ESTA, but that takes 1 minute to complete. Or does he need a "work Visa"? Anyone?
The US has passport control at entry points and if you are not a US citizen you need a visa to enter which for a British Citizen is a stamp in a passport. British citizens also do not qualify to enter the US as a tourist under the visa waiver program and earn money playing guitar for Morrissey.

It's ironic that in the UK the passport agency hasn't been bothering to check anyone in or out of the country for months... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-15649548

I remember meeting Boz years ago when he'd just started working with Morrissey, he said one of the nice things about being Morrissey's guitarist was that he now had people to carry his guitars, tune them, sound check etc whereas before he'd had to drive the van, lug his own gear round and set up for himself.

I would have thought that one of the other advantages was that someone in management sorts out the paperwork for the tour... Still, what's new about Morrissey having bobbins management - they haven't been able to announce a decent tour for years, rather we get a drip, drip, drip of dates announced that eventually turns into a half arsed tour.

My heart goes out to those who have missed the show - to those who have taken time off work, travelled, paid for hotels...

Could Moz not hire in Johnny Marr to fill the gap, and he could only play the good Moz solo songs and skip half of the newer crap.

Ah, poor baby. Moz wouldn't come to New York this tour, so time to throw your toys out of the pram. Spare a thought for all the fans in Australia - the fans in Canada - the fans in Japan.
You East Coast USA fans have been spoiled rotten over the last decade. Unfortunately you now seem to think you have some kind of entitlement for Morrissey to play in your backyard.

Get a grip. Shit happens. Deal with it. Move on.

Morrissey's ...'ex?'... Lad lives in LA, why not call Alain for one gig? or say stay away Boz, Alain's back:thumb:btw. if I were Morrissey,Mr Boorer would get less paid due to the cancelation andnot that good way to start a tour, so he lost 1 star already around this issue/no gigconcerning all the revieuws in the papers about the upcoming shows

Actually people should go to Canada to speak out about the killing of baby seals. Do you really think boycotting going to Canada actually makes the Canadian government do anything? Of course not. People with a voice should go there and speak out.

I thought it was a bit odd Jesse having a Visa problem, he is from USA, who wouldn't even need one.

Unless you're an American Indian then you are descended from an immigrant. Moron!
Sad son,

Actually, recent information shows that the original occupants of North America weren't American Indians (Native Americans) as widely believed but rather people originally from Northern Europe.

we'll let you know

It's not Jesse who can't play - it's Boz, as he has confirmed on his Facebook account. Girlie Action just got their lead and rhythm guitarists mixed up, that's all.

It's a pity Alain Whyte has been given the cold shoulder by Team Moz, or he could have flow up from LA to cover. :(
sad son,

What makes you think Alain would want to play the garbage Jesse has written for Moz?

we'll let you know

If the blown out gig had been scheduled for LA and Alain was free and could be arsed...possibly. But a trip across country on a couple of days notice, with a half unfamiliar set-list - it's nice to dream, but it probably would have been a clusterfuck of mayhemic proportions.
