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.

Vancouver Civic Theatres said in a statement, “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”. However,

Morrissey’s latest album is his covers record ‘California Son’.

California Son Tracklist:
01. Morning Starship (Jobriath) [feat. Ed Droste]
02. Don’t Interrupt the Sorrow (Joni Mitchell) [feat. Ariel Engle]
03. Only a Pawn in Their Game (Bob Dylan) [feat. Petra Haden]
04. Suffer the Little Children (Buffy Sainte-Marie)
05. Days of Decisions (Phil Ochs) [feat. Sameer Gadhia]
06. It’s Over (Roy Orbison) [feat. LP]
07. Wedding Bell Blues (The Fifth Dimension) [feat. Billie Joe Armstrong and Lydia Night]
08. Loneliness Remembers What Happiness Forgets (Dionne Warwick)
09. Lady Willpower (Gary Puckett)
10. When You Close Your Eyes (Carly Simon) [feat. Petra Haden]
