    Show is still on! Venue has been moved.

    the email:
    Good news is that the Morrissey show is still happening! Bad news is that bad weather the past few days means we can't have it on the Lawn.

    But, the show will go on at the brand-spankin' new Smart Financial Centre at 18111 Lexington Boulevard, Sugar Land, Texas 77479

    And of course!
    Yes! Your existing ticket is still good for Smart Financial Centre. No new ticket is needed!
    Yes! If your tickets are will-call, you can still pick them up from will call at Smart Financial Centre!
    Yes! Show times are expected to stay the same.

    See ya Friday...I hope.

    Full email additional details from Abrahan:

    Where are my General Admission tickets located?
    On the above image, all the original Lawn General Admission will be first come first serve within the green section of the above image. Please help us out and do not leave empty seats between you and the other customers as the Ushers will ask you to move over.

    But what about our Add-On’s?

      Super happy for you all In Houston. I hope it happens. Truly.
      It didn't feel good last night in San Antonio so I hope y'all don't have to go through that.

      I mean, for Morrissey Tour Inc. to really let the venue/promoter go through the hassle of moving the show to a different venue due to recent weather conditions, they must really be pretty confident Morrissey can pull the show off, right? Talk about an easy way out if Moz wanted to bag the show. Sounds like a logistical nightmare for the new venue to have to staff up on 24 hours notice.

      Does anyone have any inside scoop on whether Houston and Dallas are REALLY likely to occur?

      Why change the venue if you going to cancel tomorrow afternoon. Im guessing they have someone else who will exactly show up and perform unlike Steve the cancelling Vegan.

      So, everyone's GA ticket remains a standing GA ticket, but now there will be a section of seats directly in front of the stage, which can be purchased for an additional $75 "upgrade"? Am I understanding that correctly.

      I was looking forward to the original venue. This new one looks sterile and in the middle of nowhere.

      It's still early be wary of getting news on the day of for cancellation. Morrissey usually cancels a week or 2 worth of shows, it's his cancellation standard.

      There's still time to cancel.

      San Antonio was cancelled the day of the show (correct me if I'm wrong), and Tucson was even cancelled after the show had already started.

      Ewww - what makes you think we want to pay money to see a 57 year old man's drippy sweat stinkin up the place? This venue are sickos. :(

      Wow. Just wow.

      So, we buy tickets to a General Admission show where getting there early means you'll be up front. That's what I paid for and that's what I expect.

      So then they change the venue, and for the price I paid for my ticket, now I'm forced at least 20-30 feet back (if not more) because they want to charge more for the "Golden Circle". So after paying the increased ticket price, the service fees (which would be the THIRD time since they weren't refunded from the first cancelled show), we're talking paying $100 more to *maybe* get a close seat to a show that was supposed to be General Admission.

      I'm glad I'm not a hardcore fan. I feel sorry for the hardcore people who had plans for showing up early to get right up to the stage and are now being completely screwed if they don't PAY UP.

      I guess I'd lose my voice too if I thought I wasn't getting paid enough. I hope enough people realize that this was a classic Bait-and-Switch.

      So if the Houston and Dallas shows actually happen ... does this mean he'll try to reschedule San Antonio? I just read in the other thread that the Tucson venue is trying to reschedule with Morrissey.

      Let me translate: Moz wasnt making enough green, promoters got the hint, tix prices raised, more bling for Moz, voice problems evaporate.
      Of course, if not enough of the Golden Circle tix sell, its off again.
