Morrissey cancels another show, loses support act

Rocker Morrissey has scrapped a Friday night (06Jun14) show in New Jersey as he and his road crew continue to battle a virus. The former The Smiths star cancelled a concert in Atlanta, Georgia on Wednesday night (04Jun14) after falling sick, and now he has pulled the plug on a concert in Atlantic City.
A statement on Morrissey’s Facebook page reads: “As Morrissey and the touring party recover from a virus, the engagement in Atlantic City at the Revel Ovation Hall has been postponed to Sunday, June 22. All previously purchased tickets will be honored on the new date. The tour will resume as originally scheduled, without question, at the Boston Opera House on Saturday, June 7.”
And in another blow to the sick singer, his support act, Kristeen Young, has announced she won’t be touring with the Everyday is Like Sunday singer.
A statement from her reads: “We won’t be continuing as opening band for the Morrissey tour. Thanks to all who showed up early and gave us such life-sustaining enthusiasm. Thanks to Morrissey for his years of support and generosity. There are lots of plans and lots of possibilities and we can’t wait to tear into them.”
