Morrissey suffers ‘medical emergency’ in European accident, postpones Canadian concerts

Morrissey’s Canadian tour that was to have started Sunday night in Vancouver is on the rocks after at least the first two concerts — if not most of the trek — are being pushed to October “due to a medical emergency stemming from an accident incurred while traveling in Europe.”

“The artist is on the path to a swift recovery,” according to a statement shared by the Vancouver venue.

The postponement of the Vancouver concerts set for Sunday and Monday nights was announced in a since-deleted post to Morrissey’s official Facebook page. It read:

“Due to a medical emergency stemming form an accident incurred while traveling in Europe, Morrissey will be forced to postpone his performances in Vancouver to October 14th and 15th, 2019. Spirits are high and the artist is on the path to a swift recovery. All tickets will be valid for the new date and exchanges will not be necessary. Thank you for your understanding. 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 Apr 26.”

Some of that language — including the line about the accident — was echoed by the Vancouver concerts’ promoters, who have confirmed the postponements on social media. And fans also have shared alerts from Ticketmaster that also include the message about Morrissey’s medical emergency.

The message, however, only refers to the rescheduling of the first two concerts on Morrissey’s nine-date Canadian trek, but then says the tour will resume in Toronto on April 26 — which would mean planned concerts in Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon and Winnipeg also are to be rescheduled.

UPDATE: The Edmonton concert has been postponed until Oct. 10. The Calgary date also has been postponed, but with no new date yet announced.

 


The new Vancouver dates now will come after Morrissey’s seven-night residency on Broadway and his just-announced fall U.S. tour with Interpol. See Morrissey’s full tour dates below.

    Appropriate thing to wake up to on (Face)Palm Sunday.

  2. Morrissey cancels concerts? Who could have predicted this?

    Although I am in almost perfect disagreement with Morrissey and his politics, I love his music.
    I pray for his rapid recovery and I wish he was swinging down south where I live. I don’t think there’s another performer that I would bother to see.
    Get well Mr Morrissey.
    Love and mercy,
    Craig

  4. Love his music since the 80’s and an avid follower when he comes to L.A., however that said, I’ve lost quite respect for him to cancel so many shows in the past including one beautiful outdoor venue (Vino Robles) I attempted to enjoy a few years back only to be told literally five minutes before he was to appear on stage the show cancelled because it was too cold! Ridiculous! I still love your music “Stephen” but in my opinion, Interpol band members have too much class to do as you’ve done to your devoted fans and therefore, they really should be the headliner band and you should be the warm up, sorry. Interpol is a great show through and through and always look forward to their tours.

  5. Dental Practice

    Yep.

  6. Timm Davison

    Why do any of you continue to shell out money to see Moz in concert? If he were a Vegas bet, he’d have the worst odds imaginable.

  7. Willie Potter

    And the best payout.
