Morrissey cancelled a gig on Wednesday [March 10] in Holland due to ill health.

The show was due to take place at the Poppodium 013 venue in Tilburg.

The cancellation was confirmed by the venue, who issued the following statement:


“We regret to inform you that Morrissey is forced to cancel tonight’s appearance in 013, Tilburg. Our stage crew, as well as Morrissey’s touring party were already setting up stage and all requirements for tonight’s show when we were informed by management that Morrissey is unable to perform tonight due to flu. At the moment we are trying to reschedule the date for later this month and will advise all ticket holders as soon as possible.”

Morrissey had previously postponed the same gig in December 2014.
