Morrissey’s December 7th concert at Boston’s Orpheum Theatre—the final show of his North American tour in support of his 11th studio album Low In High School has now been cancelled.
The venue made the announcement at around 6 p.m EST. Repeating the same reason for the cancellation of the Philadelphia gig a few nights prior.
Here is the statement from the venue:
“It is with great regret that we must inform you that tomorrow evening’s Morrissey performance at The Orpheum has been cancelled due to illness in the touring party. The Orpheum team apologizes greatly for this disappointment and wishes those who are ill a speedy recovery. Refunds are available at point of purchase.”
This marks the third gig of the tour to have been canceled, with a Californian concert a few weeks prior kicking off this season of cancellations for the now infamous reason of being too cold due to a broken stage heater.
Some fans have been speculating that the Mancunian singer’s throat cancer may have returned, while other point out that Morrissey had made cancellations after his keyboard player Gustavo Manzur had taken ill before a show in Boulder, Colorado.
No further details about the illness in the touring party seem to be available at this time.
