Morrissey postpones U.S. tour opener in Chicago over guitarist’s visa problems

Morrissey today postponed what was to have been the opening night of his upcoming tour of the United States and Mexico — Thursday’s sold-out concert at Chicago’s Congress Theatre — because his lead guitarist, Boz Boorer, can’t perform in the U.S. this week “due to a visa administration error.”

According to a press statement posted at fansite True To You, “The issue is out of Morrissey’s hands but it will not affect Monday’s concert at the Majestic Theatre in San Antonio, nor will it affect the rest of the tour.” The Chicago show has been rescheduled for Dec. 17.

The upcoming U.S. tour, which follow Moz’s extensive touring of the U.K. and Europe this summer, marks the former Smiths singer’s first American concerts since a pair of cancellation-prone visits in 2009. Unlike this week’s concert, however, those shows were never rescheduled.
