Morrissey cancels Oakland concert for 2nd time in 2 years, promoter promises new date

Maintaining his reputation as a risky concert investment, Morrissey canceled his show at the Fox Theater Oakland, Calif., last night — the second time in two years Moz has scrubbed a performance in that city. This time, according to SF Weekly, the show was called off because Morrissey’s drummer suffered an eye injury. Promoters are promising to reschedule, but no new date has surfaced.

On his current tour, Moz already had postponed the opening night in Chicago because his lead guitarist, Boz Boorer, was held up “due to a visa administration error.” Morrissey now heads south of the border for six concerts in Mexico, followed by a Detroit gig, the Chicago make-up date and, possibly, a rescheduled Oakland concert.


Morrissey tour dates:

Dec. 5: Arena, Monterrey
Dec. 7: Plaza Condesa, Mexico City
Dec. 8: Plaza Condesa, Mexico City
Dec. 10: Auditorio del Complejo Cultural Universitario, Puebla
Dec. 12: Diana, Guadalajara
Dec. 13: Diana, Guadalajara

Dec. 17: Congress Theatre, Chicago, IL
Dec. 18: Royal Oak Music Theatre, Royal Oak, MI
