I know it’s hard to believe, Morrissey, the man we’ve long associated as Earth’s greatest physical specimen, finds himself ill. Already, the undisclosed bug has caused Moz to cancel his Atlanta show — just the fourth time he’s done so since 2012. Now, another date has been put on hold: his June 6th performance at Atlantic City’s Revel Casino Hotel will now take place June 22nd, according to a posting on Morrissey’s Facebook page, which adds: “The tour will resume as originally scheduled, without question, at the Boston Opera House on Saturday, June 7.” Where have I heard that sentence before?
As Pitchfork points out, tour opener Kristeen Young will no longer be accompanying Morrissey on the road. It was previously reported she fell ill with whatever Morrissey has, but she says that wasn’t true. She didn’t however, say whether she bought Moz the wrong kind of pasta sauce.
Check out Morrissey’s remaining tour schedule below. The outing comes in support of his latest solo album, World Peace Is None of Your Business, due out July 15th through Harvest Records.
