Bummer news Moz fans: Morrissey's upcoming stop at the Marquee Theatre on Wednesday, November 21, has been postponed.

The singer is returning to to England to be with his ailing mother. Current ticket-holders are advised to hold on to their tickets, as replacement dates will be "announced shortly." A representative of Luckyman Concerts confirms that the show is nearly sold out, and tickets to the make-up date promise to be scarce.

All remaining dates on the current US Tour have been postponed - but not cancelled - as Morrissey has returned to England where his mother has been hospitalized and is unwell. Due to issues with his mother's health, Morrissey will need to remain by her side during this difficult period.

Those who have already purchased tickets for all upcoming dates are highly encouraged to hold on to their tickets and look out for the rescheduled dates. The new dates will be announced shortly.

Morrissey would like to thank everyone for their understanding and patience as the shows are being prepared for a swift reschedule.
