Morrissey has cancelled his first Canadian dates in over 20 years because of a “medical emergency”.
Morrissey had refused to tour Canada because of the country’s annual Baby Seal Kill. “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.”
New dates for Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary have been rescheduled for October.
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 14th and 15th, 2019.
