    Show has been postponed till oct 28th no reason given yet. Uuuuuuuugggggghhhhhh


    From White Oak FB (see full FAQ posted by Famous when dead in comments):

    "Well this really sucks. We've been working through the weather to make this show happen & just learned Morrissey and Interpol will not be playing tonight. Here’s the deal — the entire show is postponed until October 28th. Your ticket for tonight will be valid for the rescheduled date.

    We know there’s a lot of questions here, so we hope this answers them:

    Q. Wait...What’s going on?
    A. From Moz --

    "Due to complications from the extreme flood conditions in the Houston area, the Morrissey / Interpol concert set to take place tonight has been re-scheduled for Oct 28th.
    It was determined to move the event in consideration and respect of the troubles that people in the area have recently encountered.
    It is the group’s wishes that the rescheduled date can better serve all who would like to come to the event.
    Morrissey’s team reached the decision after hearing that a number of ticket buyers were having issues attending tonight’s event, along with information of current road closures and other related problematic details.
    The team would like to express their deepest apologies for any inconvenience to the fans.

      For whatever reasons this was cancelled, it must have been:

      1. A difficult call to make, plus
      2. Difficult to decide at what point to make the call
      3. Difficult to get communications out in an effective manner (FB/Twitter/radio/TV/other)
      4. Difficult to minimise the inconvenience to, & dissatisfaction of, fanbase

      Key thing though must have been to avoid disrespecting the awful flood situation & consequences ppl are facing locally, by playing on regardless.

      Sympathies with genuine attendees/ticket holders but sympathies also with the organisers/decision makers, & especially locals who have a whole lot more urgent things to be concerned about

      Tough day at the office all round I think.

      You can't possibly know any of that. It's equally possible that Morrissey, for whatever reason, just didn't fancy it and left others to sort out the mess at the last minute. Who knows the truth, but one thing always stands out for me regarding these 'logistical' cancellations - in complete contrast to every other band who is forced to cancel - Morrissey rarely if ever comments. No apology, no explanation, no message to the fans. Total radio silence. That, above everything, must make those fans feel like they've been shafted.

      I thought Moz had issued a statement? I'm sure it was mentioned in one of the opening posts...maybe you didn't read that bit?​

      I'm not professing to know anything about it, just looking at things objectively & imagining that this situation, which appears as a simple issue to some, is, in all probability, quite complex to deal with & manage. Some people seem to have lost sight of that.

      Nothing in his Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. He lets fans get there and find out. Again, the roads were dry. I’ll bet he never got to Houston. Anyone have a photo of him in Houston?

      He should apologise for wasting peoples time and money. He could have postponed the show 24 hours earlier.

      "No apology, no explanation, no message to the fans."...I think this was the gripe...in fairness there was a full explanation & message to the fans.

      Where is there an apology in that message from him or for any of the other 301 concerts that never went ahead? The team apologises but not Morrissey.

      I suppose Moz & co were less dedicated than you, and couldn't be bothered to drive through the flooded streets of Houston. Bummer. I suppose some of the more casual fans would not bother to show up n these circumstances, hence Morrissey would be playing for a half empty venue and he doesn't like that. I just wonder why they couldn't reach this decision earlier?
