It’s almost the most wonderful time of the year – well, at least for some of us. To Morrisseythe crisp weather is obviously not suitable for performing, as he canceled a show in Los Angeles after 30 minutes because he was “extremely cold”.
The performance took place at the Greek Theater on Saturday, Nov. 12. According to Setlist.fm, the musician played a total of nine songs before leaving the stage. The night before in Ontario, California, he played a total of 20 tracks.
“As I think you know, it’s extremely cold,” Morrissey told the LA crowd [via Datebook]. “Can you tell?” I can. However, we will steam on. Where? Who knows.”
The band followed the singer off the stage a few minutes later, and then one of them returned to say: “Sorry, but due to unforeseen circumstances, the show will not go ahead. Very sorry. See you next time. Sorry.” They were met with a negative reaction from the crowd.
One fan took to Twitter that evening and noted that the temperature was in the 50s during the concert.
The day after the show, Morrissey shared a post on his Instagram thanking fans for their attendance, adding: “Please stay tuned for further announcements coming soon.” That Greek Theater website states that the show has been postponed to a later date, so fans will likely have a chance to attend the show again. The rescheduled date is currently to be determined. Hopefully it will be a little warmer outside, but in the meantime, someone should get this guy a pair of gloves.
