Morrissey Canceled His California Concert at the Last Minute Because it Was Too Cold
Stephen Patrick Morrissey is not what you’d call a trooper. Right now, Morrissey is on an American tour, leading up to the release of his new album Low In High School. On Sunday night (Nov. 5), the fourth night of the tour, he was slated to play Vina Robles Amphitheatre in the central California town of Paso Robles.
But he never made it to the stage. As Slicing Up Eyeballs points out, after the show was scheduled to start, someone announced over the PA that the show would be “postponed.” Apparently, it was a chilly night, with temperatures in the 40s, and the venue’s onstage heating system wasn’t working. "Due to an inoperable heating system on stage, tonight's engagement is postponed," the announcement informed fans.
Heaven forbid Morrissey just button up a couple more buttons on his shirt. Below, watch the reactions from some disappointed and pissed-off fans.
An amphitheater full of upset, sad, and angry people. #Morrissey decided to “postpone” the show after the crowd waited for almost an hour. I can’t say I’m surprised because of his history of spontaneously canceling shows, but I am disappointed. All I can do is hope I can get a refund and that #StevenMorrissey’s health is well. -- #thesmiths #meatismurder #thequeenisdead #troublelovesme #lowinhighschool #cancelledplans #vinaroblesamphitheatre #pasorobles #sanluisobispo #livemusic #nogo #postponed #damnit
Morrissey’s American tour is continuing into December, but, you know, buyer beware.
