    Tuesday June 10th

    Morrissey announces the close down of the present U.S. tour with "unimaginable sorrow".
    On Saturday, June 7th, following the show at Boston Opera House, Morrissey collapsed and was rushed to Massachusetts General Hospital where doctors treated Morrissey for "acute fever". Difficulties had arisen on May 31st following Kristeen Young's opening set at the Miami Knight Concert Hall, after which Kristeen confessed to "a horrendous cold", the symptoms of which were passed on to Morrissey resulting in the cancellation of the next show in Atlanta.
    For the good of all, Kristeen was asked to step down from the immediate upcoming shows, but instead she decided to leave the tour entirely. Morrissey and the band wish her well and hope she is now in good health.
    Morrissey received medical attention in Miami, and once again in Boston, but it was not enough to shake off the virus, the recovery time for which is too lengthy to meet the final 9 shows of the tour.
    Morrissey and the band are otherwise delighted and very grateful for their experiences on the U.S. tour, some shows of which they considered to be their best-ever, most notably:

    1 BOSTON Opera House
    2 LOS ANGELES Sports Arena
    3 BEAUMONT Julie Rogers Theater
    4 NASHVILLE Ryman Auditorium
    5 MEMPHIS Orpheum Theater

      1. Don't ever plan on the second half of a tour being completed ever again.
      2. Throwing Kristeen Young under the bus for getting him sick is a nice touch.
      3. I'd think he is just about to the uninsurable stage of his touring career.

      Morrissey is a man.....not a god. He's an artist and he's touched a lot of people. Reading these's obvious that many so called fans have never really listened to what the man has been getting at all of these years.

      One day Morrissey will die and so will all of the anonymous pukes that have posted their meaningless babel here on this site. So shut the hell one cares about your thoughts.

      To the real fans and admirers.....Cheer up....He's still with us....he's got a great band and a new album coming out soon.

      Hope Morrissey will not be too hard on himself. He matters to so many.

      Response from Kristeen Young on Facebook:

      Ok. Regarding the recent True-to-you statement from Morrissey: I did not "confess to a horrendous cold". On Monday, June 2nd, I had an allergy attack that was over within 16 hours. I went to a doctor (on Monday, June 2nd), an allergy specialist, who gave me drugs for allergies...and they worked. I explained this (early on Tuesday, June 3rd) and offered this doctor's phone number to Morrissey personally and the tour manager, Donnie Knutson (for proof....since they seemed to doubt me). But, they NEVER followed up with me or said doctor. is incorrect that I "decided to leave the tour completely". I was asked to leave. Was called (in the presence of my band as witnesses) by Morrissey's booking agent, Dave Tamaroff, and told that there would be a new support band in Boston. I am very sorry that Morrissey is not feeling well. But I will not tolerate these lies....particularly about my health. This is really too much and bizarre.

      Lol, because lying 10 years off your age isn't "too much and bizarre"?

      So Morrissey is actually placing the blame for his cancellation on Kristeen Young? How unprofessional can you get?

      I'm really starting to think the concert drama is actually more interesting that the concerts themselves...

      Why shouldn't we?
      Seriously accept the truth when it stares you blankly in the face.
      Been cancelled on more times than I care to count.
      Unless Morrissey has full blown aids, I don't buy that his immune system is as compromised as he makes it out to be.

      A white lie never hurt anybody.. well, they're not supposed to anyway.

      Good day to all.
