Earlier: Alas, Angelenos planning on seeing Moz November 24 at Staples Center have some sad news to contend with: The singer has postponed the remainder of his fall U.S. tour.
According to Pop & Hiss, the postponement is due to Morrissey's mother's illness.
Show promoter Goldenvoice says the shows will be rescheduled, and ticket holders should expect details on the new dates soon--so hang on to those tickets!
There were 22 shows left on the tour that are now slated to be rescheduled.
Plenty of rumors swirl around legendary singer/songwriter Morrissey wherever he goes, but one that has gotten a little traction Monday is untrue.
The news has hit that the crooner’s mother has fallen ill in England and Moz will be cancelling a few Midwest shows on his current U.S. tour.
Fortunately, we Eastside Angelenos are spared--for now--as the show at Downtown L.A.'s Staples Center on November 24th with fellow rock icon Iggy Pop and The Stooges will go on.
Morrissey, a crossover favorite with Latino audiences worldwide, is touring in support of his autobiography scheduled for a December 2012 release.
We had expected this to be the Angeleno melting-pot show of the season and we're hoping not to be disappointed.
