Morrissey has been playing gigs lately, and he’s been following all scheduled gigs with no cancellations in sight. His perfect record, however, was shaken slightly over the weekend after cutting short his appearance in San Diego after fans crashed on stage.
Mozzer was ending his show at Copley Symphony Hall Saturday (November 10) when a flood of fans rushed on stage during the encore, for “Every Day Is Like Sunday”. Early media reports suggested Morrissey was “attacked” in the incident, but the former Smiths frontman downplayed this notion in a Facebook post written by his manager, Peter Katsis, and the fan in question, who is believed to be Carlos Rodriguez, made it clear that he hadn’t been throwing any sort of punch.
To concern video of the incident below. All of this kept Morrissey from coming back, but all was not lost – âEvery Day Is Like Sundayâ was his 20th song on the show and likely the closing number.
âNo one tried to hit M last night,â Katsis writes. âMorrissey fans are not malicious. The fans were just doing what they’ve been doing for almost 30 years. Try anything they could do to jump on stage and touch him, or give him a hug. The fan in question was certainly more aggressive in reaching out to him than most, so security had to do their job and get the fan under control. That’s all it was. In the end, no one was hurt and no one was arrested.
Life goes on.
