Morrissey postpones Royal Oak show for recovering keyboardist
ROYAL OAK, Mich. – Morrissey postponed his show at the Royal Oak Music Theatre on Wednesday night as his touring keyboardist recovers after collapsing before a show earlier this month.
The Royal Oak Music Theatre tweeted the news Tuesday:
Due to a member of the Morrissey touring party's illness, and a full recovery is expected shortly, this week's shows have been postponed pic.twitter.com/6rZ7BWRyKb— RoyalOakMusicTheatre (@RoyalOakMusic) November 23, 2016
The concert is rescheduled for Dec. 7. Refunds are available from the Royal Oak Music Theatre box office starting Wednesday.
Morrissey, the iconic frontman for The Smiths, canceled three shows in Flint in 2013 and 2014 for a variety of reasons, including a health problem that sent him to Royal Oak Beaumont hospital.
This time, it's a member of his band who is unable to perform. Keyboardist Gustavo Manzur is recuperating after collapsing before a soldout show in Boulder, Colo., Pitchfork media reports. Morrissey canceled three shows in Texas this month, and now his Royal Oak concert.
Need your Morrissey fix Wednesday? You can check out the The Smiths United Tribute Band at The Magic Bag in Ferndale. (Yup, the real Morrissey was scheduled to play in Metro Detroit against his own tribute band.)
