Morrissey has been forced to axe shows in Canada, due to a ”medical emergency”.
Ticketmaster said in a statement:
Due to a medical emergency stemming from an accident incurred while traveling in Europe, Morrissey will be forced to postpone his performances in Vancouver to October 14 and 15, 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.
The ticketing company added:
All remaining dates on Morrissey’s tour will resume as planned, commencing in Toronto on Friday, April 26.
The tour will be the first time Morrissey has set foot in Canada, in 15 years, as he previously avoided the country in protest of their annual seal hunt.
Morrissey said last year:
My decision to return to Canada after almost 15 years of protest against its savage and Neanderthal annual Baby Seal Kill is entirely because my stance was ultimately of no use and helped no one.
My voice was drowned out by the merciless swing of spiked axes crushing the heads of babies. On my return to Canada I feel that I can be of more use by making sizeable donations to animal protection groups in each city that I play.
