Morrissey Announces Rescheduled U.S. Tour Dates

Morrissey fans will have to wait until December to see the former Smiths frontman

The remaining dates for Morrissey’s hotly-anticipated U.S. tour have been postponed. The former Smiths frontman, who has been forced to postpone and cancel a collection of U.S. shows over the years because of sickness, has put off the upcoming dates on his current trek due to keyboardist Gustavo Manzur’s illness.

For some backstory, Manzur collapsed backstage right before a Nov. 14 tour date in Boulder, Colorado, and that show was canceled. The tour’s remaining concerts have been pushed to December, to give time for Manzur to get healthy.

In other news, Morrissey recently wrote a letter to General Motors CEO Mary T. Barra, advocating the idea of having the automobile company give consumers an option of vegan leather interiors on its eco-conscious Bolt and Volt cars. Morrissey is a vegan and anti-animal cruelty activist.
