In the UK, cancellations affect the July 4 show at Usher Hall in Edinburgh, two nights at the Castlefield Bowl in Manchester, July 7-8, one night at the Guildhall in Portsmouth, July 10, and one concert at the Rivermead Leisure Complex in Reading.
The “LIHS” tour will recommence Nov. 23 at the Auditorio Nacional in Mexico City, Mexico. Morrissey’s management stated that the cancelled shows are going to be postponed.
“We deeply regret any inconvenience to the fans and promise to reschedule UK and European dates as soon as possible.
“All original purchasers from official ticket outlets will have the full ticket fee refunded, including booking fee, to their credit/debit cards. Refunds from ticket agents will be actioned from midday on Monday, July 2.”
The artist’s management also states that the “LIHS” has been Morrissey’s “most successful tour to date, having achieved record business for the artist in both the U.S. and the UK.”
