Morrissey has scrapped plans for a show at Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavik (Iceland) due to the refusal of management at the Harpa Concert Hall to sell only vegetarian food on the night of the projected Morrissey show.
"I love Iceland and I have waited a long time to return, but I shall leave the Harpa Concert Hall to their cannibalistic flesh-eating bloodlust ... " Morrissey has commented.
No other venue in Reykjavik is available.

Morrissey cancels concert at Harpa because meat is served at its restaurants - mbl.is
Director of Harpa, Halldór Guðmundsson said to mbl.is this morning that negotiations about the concert had only been in early stages and that he had not heard of the issue but directed the enquiry to the concert promoter Halldór Kvaran at concert promoting company RR ehf.
"When the meat issue came up we realised that Harpa wouldn't work out for the concert," said Kvaran. "There are two restaurants in the building as well as a catering service and we can't order them to take meat of all their menus. We didn't even ask them to. We're currently seeing if we can figure out another concert venue for Morrissey in Iceland. "
