Morrissey statement on tour cancellation - true-to-you.net

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

Dear Kristeen,

Donnie Knutson is a dick. He will make it all your fault and I don't know how possibly it could be. The person who gives you a cold or infection doesn't leave a calling card. Why place blame on someone when you don't have to do that. Just say he is sick...enough said.

I have a feeling the next few days will be very interesting and full of
Drama. Kristeen may not have a confidentiality agreement. His retirement announcement should follow.

Do you know James already has their fan site?

Morrissey's career will be longer than you expect. If you don't like him, leave him alone.

when something gets posted on true to you is it assumed it comes directly from morrissey?

because assuming for moment she did get him sick, it seems really petty and childish to bring it up

A 16-hour allergy attack? I'm skeptical.
I'm a nurse. There is nothing to be skeptical about it. Allergies can be horrendous and miserable and much longer than 16 hours. Even if she had a cold, striking her from the tour is no guarantee that Morrissey wouldn't have fallen ill anyway. By the time she was symptomatic the entire group was already at risk. I do, however, think there is more to this story than the Morrissey group is letting on.

Women lie about their age sometimes. Welcome to Earth.

How many men lie about being celibate for decades?
Women tend to knock a year or two off their age, Viva, not an entire decade. That's a whopper, as is portraying yourself as celibate for a large part of your adult life. (I'm assuming you're referring to Morrissey -- I didn't know his celibacy had been refuted.)

My only hope is that he has a "come to Jesus" moment, looks at his bank account, and says screw it and does a few Smiths reunion shows ala Led Zep.
 

!Viva Hate!

Autobiography refuted it...

Marr experienced this profound flakiness back in the late '80's. I fully understand why a Smith's reunion will never, ever happen and I'm kinda happy it won't.

we don't know what really happened so I'm curious why this poster is so quick to assume "morrissey is a f***ing liar"
I have had a lot of disagreements with VH in the past. I banned him numerous times when I was a mod but I feel his opinion, which is all he's offering, is pretty reasonable.

Back in 1991 Morrissey canceled a tour and supposedly collapsed backstage after the Nassau, NY show the night before I was supposed to see him in Worcester. Then in his autobiography he said that everyone was spent and ticket sales were in the shitter. That Worcester show had actually been moved to a much smaller venue and still had poor sales. I now highly doubt he collapsed but a good dramatic story makes the truth easier to swallow.

Do I believe Morrissey is sick this time?
Yes.

Do I believe KY was ever sick beyond allergies?
No.

Those are just opinions, which is all anyone here has.

Do I know that KY lies about her age?
No.

Do I care when we live in a very ageist world if she is lying?
No.

Morrissey isn't the victim here. The fans are. I understand that people get sick but this TTY statement is so heartless. It's all third person. It would be nice to see a first person statement.

Just an opinion. Don't bother arguing back with opinions stated as fact despite your deep desire to do so.

Why would she offer him the number of an allergy specialist if he just had a virus/cold? Would she have offered the number of her obgyn - after all, they are qualified to diagnose illnesses other than their specialist area. He could (and would) just see his own medical team/doctor (I'm sure he has number s already due to previous illnesses).

As for 'following up' with her or pointless doctor - err, hello, earth to Kristeen - who the hell do you think you are?!

I'm glad she's off the tour, I sincerely hope she takes all her nasty, drama addicted fans with her. In sure they will all enjoy wallowing in their misery and tragedy together. That's why most of them like her after all, so that they can feel picked on.

It's not like Morrissey tells the truth all the time, but KY doesn't either and she and her camp are just horrid. What a waste of space. I suppose she thinks she doesn't need Morrissey anymore now she's got a new set of people to bullshit and cling onto.

I think with all the talk about 'proof' and 'witnesses' she doth protest too much.
