Morrissey postpones another gig on US tour

The show in Atlantic City on June 6 has been pushed forward as singer and crew recover from a virus

Morrissey has pulled another show on his current US tour.

The singer was recently forced to cancel a gig in Atlanta, Georgia after being struck down by illness and he has now postponed tomorrow’s show (June 6) at the Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey. A statement on Morrissey’s Facebook page says the gig will now take place at the same venue on June 22.

The statement reads: “As Morrissey and the touring party recover from a virus, the engagement in Atlantic City at the Revel Ovation Hall has been postponed to Sunday, June 22. All previously purchased tickets will be honored on the new date. The tour will resume as originally scheduled, without question, at the Boston Opera House on Saturday, June 7.”

The tour’s opening act Kristeen Young also revealed earlier today (June 5) that she will no longer be supporting Morrissey on the remaining dates. She wrote on Facebook: “We won’t be continuing as opening band for the Morrissey tour. Thanks to all who showed up early and gave us such life-sustaining enthusiasm. Thanks to Morrissey for his years of support and generosity. There are lots of plans and lots of possibilities and we can’t wait to tear into them.”

Morrissey’s upcoming LP ‘World Peace Is None Of Your Business’ will be released later this year on July 14. He is currently streaming the song ‘Earth Is The Loneliest Planet’ from the record. Meanwhile, it was reported earlier this week that the former frontman of The Smiths is apparently appealing for a new music publisher after his current deal of 30 years ended.
