Here's a shocker: Morrissey's Fillmore concert has been postponed

Tuesday, 05 December 2017, 05:41:17 AM. The former Smiths front man has a reputation for canceling shows.

Morrissey, the former leader of much-loved 1980s British band The Smiths, is known for his mordant wit, virulent vegetarianism and contrarian statements seemingly designed to aggravate as many people as possible (he recently spoke out in support of accused sexual harasser Kevin Spacey).

He’s also acquired a reputation for canceling shows, which he does so frequently that it’s become a guessing game as to whether the 58-year-old singer will show up for his gigs or not.

Tonight at the Fillmore, he won’t. This afternoon it was announced that the Mozz’s show in support of his new album Low in High School has been postponed. The reason given is “illness in the touring party.”

It’s unclear if the sick individual is Morrissey himself, who last month canceled a California show due to a malfunction in a Paso Robles venue’s heating system, bringing the number of shows he has canceled to 124 since 2012, according to Consequence of Sound.

Refunds for the Philadelphia show are available at point of purchase. The Fillmore issued a statement that “apologizes greatly for this disappointment and wishes those who are ill a speedy recovery,” and promises that a  rescheduled date will be announced as soon as possible.
