Morrissey cancels third San Antonio show in six months

SAN ANTONIO-- For a third straight time, Morrissey has backed out of a show in San Antonio.

The former Smiths frontman was scheduled to perform in front of a sold-out crowd Wednesday at the Tobin Center.

The news comes as less of a shock after Morrissey walked off stage during a Tuscon show just two days ago. According to the Arizona Daily Star, the indie legend was just six songs in when he abruptly walked off the stage.  A member of his band later came back to explain Morrissey would not be returning because "his voice [was] shot."

Morrissey Tour officials released a statement Wednesday, stating, "Following health concerns stemming from Morrissey’s appearance in Tucson, it is with great sadness that tonight's sold out engagement in San Antonio at the Tobin Center is cancelled to allow him to fully recuperate. Refunds are available at point of purchase.

As could be expected, sad...or angry? Morrissey fans took to social media Wednesday after learning the news to express their lament.







This is Morrissey's third cancelation in San Antonio in just a matter of months. A November 16 show, also at the Tobin, was canceled after after keyboardist Gustavo Manzur reportedly collapsed before a Colorado show. A  December 17 makeup date at the Majestic Theatre was also canceled.
