Morrissey Cancels Remainder of U.S. Tour, Blames Mismanagement
Morrissey announced Saturday that he must cancel the remaining six dates of his U.S. tour – concerts that were rescheduled dates after the singer’s keyboardist fell ill, forcing postponements – due to mismanagement of tour funds.
In a post titled “There Is a Light That Now Goes Out” on Morrissey’s fan site/mouthpiece True to You (via Stereogum), the singer revealed that he and his band are in “unrecoverable despair” after the tour’s remaining shows in Detroit, Cleveland, Chicago, Houston, Dallas and San Antonio were “pulled down.”
Morrissey blamed the canceled shows on the Los Angeles-based Management 360.
“Each date booked would make enough money to pay its way,” Morrissey wrote.
“When Gustavo [Manzur, keyboardist] collapsed at the Boulder show, 360 Management responded with the announcement that all funds had suddenly evaporated. There was apparently not even enough money to transport the touring party to the next scheduled city, and 360 Management faded out as quickly as they had faded in.”
