Morrissey has been forced to cancel the Canadian leg of his tour after a “medical emergency”.
The Smiths frontman had been due to kick off the Canadian leg of his tour last night, but had to postpone the dates due to an accident he had while travelling in Europe.
The singer, 59, is said to be in good spirits and recovering well despite being unable to perform in Vancouver.
A statement released by Ticketmaster said: “Due to a medical emergency stemming from an accident incurred while traveling in Europe, Morrissey will be forced to postpone his performances in Vancouver to October 14th and 15th, 2019.
“Spirits are high and the artist is on the path to a swift recovery. All tickets will be valid for the new date and exchanges will not be necessary. Thank you for your understanding.
“Morrissey looks forward to making his long-awaited return to the city and wishes to deeply thank everyone for their patience.”
Morrissey was due to play in the city for the first time in more than a decade.
He famously boycotted Canada 15 years ago to protest seal clubbing.
The star has been outspoken with his strong views on animal rights and the meat industry.
But he caved last year and announced he’d be returning to the country, saying his “stance was ultimately of no use and helped no one”.
As a price for his return, Morrissey has vowed to make a “sizeable donation” to an animal protection charity in each city he plays in.
The tour is due to resume in Toronto on April 26.
