      Well no, I think you've slightly misinterpreted his statement there. The plural of "instant sell-outs" could mean that 2 shows sold out instantly while some other shows had "impressive ticket demands".

      But I agree with your overarching point that his statement does perhaps paint a rosier picture than the reality.

      Wow - Sakatoon doesn't look great on there. The majority of the front half sold, with only 35 seats empty, but 407 unsold seats in the back mean he'd have been playing to a half empty venue if this one went ahead (plus the higher levels look half empty as well)

      Might be time to go back to playing some smaller venues. :eek:

      Morrissey's Saskatoon Performance Has Been Rescheduled for October 24th, 2019

      Morrissey looks forward to making his long-awaited return to the city and wishes to deeply thank everyone for their patience. All remaining dates on Morrissey’s tour will resume as planned, commencing in Toronto on Friday, April 26th.

      I too was at this particular concert.

      I recall coming in from SoCal and waiting in line moving towards security when a large number of unifirmed LV PD came about. After which the announcement was made that the show was cancelled. I guess they anticipated a possible riot from the fans!

      Word quickly passed that Alain suffered from back problems and that he was unable to recover for the show despite their best efforts.

      I wandered around Vegas like a ghost for a bit then decided not to stick around and enjoy losing any money.

      Oh the memories. I was there as well - 1999, I believe. House of Blues at Mandalay Bay. I had seen him in Santa Barbara the night below and expectations for another great night were high. Alas it was not to be. This was my first time getting caught up in a Morrissey cancellation on the road - and not the last. I ended up becoming quite infatuated with Las Vegas on the trip, however, and retuned many times since both for Morrissey and just for the thrill of it.

      For real ? The lead singer for the Sweedish group Ah-HA was beset upon by Morrissey's rapturous desire once on a train, circa 85.... Something about a noticeable bulge in ol'Mozzer s britches and that was enough to Scare off his Sweet-dish quarry. Read all about in one of those Rogan books...Thanks Johnny...Hi Morrissey!

      Well, much like a week ago, the band (Matt, Mando & Boz at least) are in/heading to Toronto.
      Hopefully, things might go to plan now.

      He won’t cancel Toronto as it’s sold out, it’s the not sold out ones that he cancels/postpones and then comes up with bullshit excuses. We should have a sweepstake on which of the US dates get cancelled, I reckon it all depends on Californian Son sales but at this moment Camden and Portland are definitely on for cancellations and possibly Forest Hills.

      You keep saying a lot depends on California Son sales - do you really think a) sales of a covers album are going to be significant, and b) upon hearing Morrissey cover a song, someone [who hasn't already bought a ticket] is suddenly going to drop $75+ to see him live? My point is, which in some ways backs up your constant chatter about poor sales to some of these autumn shows, is that somebody who want to go see Morrissey in concert is typically buying them the day they go on sale. He's not exactly a "oh let's go see Morrissey on a whim" kinda artist to the casual fan.

      To be fair, the Canada tour wasn't even announced until February (i think).
      That's not a lot of time to sell out a 2500 - 3000 seat venue.
      A lot of bands/artists announce their tours 6 months to a year prior to the shows nowadays.

      At least it allows more Canadian fans to plan for the run of shows in the fall.
      I'm glad the west was postponed.
      Maybe I'll be able to get in on the Vancouver shows now :thumbsup:
