Local news update: Morrissey cancels tonight’s concert in Richmond

morrisseywehateitOriginal Hipster…Morrissey…has canceled tonight’s performance in Richmond Virginia at the National Theater due to health reasons. (Refunds are at the point of purchase).

Here’s what Vulture.com had to say about it:

Morrissey’s health issues forced him to delay a string of concerts and eventually cancel part of his North American tour, but now it sounds a little more serious. Speaking to the Mexican radio station Reactor 105.7, the 53-year-old Smiths front man said his bleeding ulcer, pneumonia, and a throat condition called Barrett’s esophagus kept him hospitalized for five weeks. Now he’s been advised to play it safe and retire. “I have been cautioned to, but it’s difficult for me because it’s very ingrained in me,” he says. He did announce plans to retire in two years back in 2012

Those looking for other concerts to attend should check out my Local Calendar page for the latest listings. (I also recommend Pollstar.com for concert info.)

BTW… found this funny picture of Morrissey while surfing the Inter-web…best caption EVER.
