Re: St Petersburg cancelled

Just saw mainpage.

Possibly poor ticket sales is the reason.
Morrissey seems to have small numbers of fans in Russia. :(

Oh dear... What a misfortune to the evidently few fans living there, the people travelling there and the whole band + support. They've all gone there for nothing. Hopefully Moscow is still alright.

Edit: I see the reason for cancelling now! Only two people are planning to attend according to Facebook ;) Arf!

well boz has just posted on his facebook that he arrived safely and seemed in good spirit, and moz has been sounding well on the last couple of dates apparently, so probably poor ticket sales

Kewpie, apparently it's not true, there's thousands Moz-fans in Russia, and most of them are going to attend both gigs here. They just don't bother to come to this site because they got their own in russian. Also russians got vkontakte instead of twitter, and the number of people who are going to the St.Petersburg concert are over 1200 :guitar:

It looks like the last time MHicks checked solo was after the retraction was posted so fingers crossed he went to the show and wasn't detered by the misinformation.

Yes Modrevolve i made it! I checked my email the day of the show after I assumed it was off and had an email confirming it was in fact on!
By the way it was me who you got the bowery Ballroom ticket for in New york, this tour has taken me from The States to Russia!

Ohhhhh snap!!!

itsmorrissey Pay no attention to unofficial web source rumors. St. Petersburg, Russia show, just ended and was spectacular.

Ohhhhh snap!!!

This site is a dubious source of information, and that's official. This from Morrissey on Facebook...

"Contrary to reports from dubious web-based sources, Morrissey's St. Petersberg show went ahead as scheduled and was spectacular.

Please ignore any rumours about show cancellations unless they are verified on Morrissey's official website, MySpace, Facebook or Twitter."
