Earlier in the week Morrissey postponed shows in Philadelphia and Boston due to an “illness in the touring party.” A statement was released via the KROQ Twitter apologizing for the disappointment.

“It is with great regret that we must inform you that Morrissey's performance for Sunday night's show has been cancelled due to illness. Earlier this week the tour's performances in Philadelphia and Boston were also forced to be canceled, but it was hoped that conditions would improve for the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas performance to continue as scheduled. Morrissey's team and KROQ apologize greatly for this disappointment and Morrissey looks forward to making it up to the Los Angeles fans as soon as possible.”

If you've been keeping track, this brings Morrissey to 127 shows that have been postponed or canceled since 2012. Luckily, the singer will have plenty of time to recover before he hits the road again, as he is not scheduled to tour until February of 2018.
