Morrissey Postpones Canadian Shows Due To Medical Emergency

Morrissey has postponed several of his Canadian shows due to a “medical emergency.”

The tour was originally scheduled to kick off on Sunday in Vancouver, but the shows scheduled to be held on April 14 and 15 have now been postponed to October.

Scheduled shows in Calgary (April 17), Edmonton (April 18), Saskatoon (April 20) and Winnipeg (April 22) have also been postponed or canceled. The Edmonton date has now been pushed to October 10.

A statement from the show presenter reads, “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.

“Spirits are high and the artist is on the path to a swift recovery,” the statement adds. “All tickets will be valid for the new date and exchanges will not be necessary. Thank you for your understanding.”

The statement said all remaining dates on Morrissey’s tour will resume as planned, commencing in Toronto on April 26.”

Morrissey, who is a staunch animal rights activist, chose to boycott Canada in 2006, condemning the “horrific slaughter” of seals.

He decided to return to the country in 2018 and has planned to donate a portion of proceeds of the tour’s ticket sales to animal rescue organizations.
