Morrissey cancels gigs in Greece and Turkey

Singer is reported to have missed a flight from London to Athens

Morrissey has cancelled dates in Greece and Turkey, the latest gigs on his European tour to meet a similar fate.

It is reported that Morrissey’s gigs in Athens last night (December 5) did not go ahead as planned with local publication The Times Of Change stating that the singer missed a flight from London to Athens ahead of his gig at the Tae Kwon Do Arena.

Morrissey’s subsequent gig at the Volkswagen Arena in Istanbul on December 7 will also be postponed due to logistical issues.

The singer’s current European tour has been met with numerous setbacks, including an incident in which a gig in Germany had to be ended shortly after a stage invasion. This represented the second time Morrissey cut short a gig on the tour, having departed the stage mid-show after being heckled by a fan in Poland.

He also cancelled a number of European tour dates due to a “flu outbreak” amongst his crew earlier in the year. This came after a string of US dates were scrappedrevealing that he had been treated for cancer.
