I imagine there are some casual Morrissey fans out there, but most of the Moz fans I know are the diehard sort, the kind of folks who'll stick by the singer no matter what grumpy things he says and does.
So while I'm sure someone was just kinda bummed about the former Smiths singer and longtime solo artist postponing his scheduled November stop at the Marquee Theatre in Tempe (for the very understandable reason of being with his ailing mother in England), most were really bummed about it.
Thankfully, according to trusted fansite True to You, Morrissey has announced the replacement dates for the 2012-2013 tour.
According to the site, Morrissey is scheduled to perform at the Marquee Theatre on Sunday, February 10, and tickets go on sale this Friday, November 16.
We'll update with the ticket link as soon as we have it.
In the meantime, get caught up on our recent Morrissey coverage:
