You mean catering to the whims of a spoiled, arrogant ass didn't pay off again?! Who could've predicted that?

due to those chilly 40-degree temps-never mind that that figure, which represents the low temp in Paso Robles that night, makes for a pleasant November day just about anywhere in the country.

Naw, fark that shiat. 40 degrees on stage sucks.

And like him or not, Morrissey is a big act. They do that.

They paid for their tickets, they know his reputation.

Surprised people bother to go to his shows.

His new single is very catchy, but it is pretty much the most Morrissey song I have ever heard.

Hey Morrissey, know what else is cold?  That sh*t you said about the victims of the Norway Utøya massacre.  Pretty much ruined for me the remaining handful of listenable songs you had.

He does this a lot.  I wonder if he just has intense stage fright and these events occur just to mask it.
 
2017-11-07 07:40:02 PM  
Looks like he started something he couldn't finish.

Let's be honest - if you're a true Morrissey fan, what's really better: seeing your 5th or 6th or 20th Morrissey show - OR - having a great story about having tickets to a show that he canceled because he was cold? Hahahaha! C'mon, man, it's no contest. No one wants to hear me talk about all the Paul Westerberg shows where he was sober and perfectly on point, sounding amazing, they want to hear about The 'Mats shows where he could barely play because he was falling down drunk. That's what real legends are about. Nobody gives a shiat if your crap local bar band pulls out of the homecoming parade gig because it's raining. This is freakin' Morrissey - in all of his Gloomy Gus glory. Absolutely fantastic performance art.

When you get down to that temperature and physically exert your voice there are consequences the next morning.

Used to play a Thursday night acoustic set outside at a local bar.  They'd go from May to mid-October.  Had a cold snap and figured I'd just muscle through it with fingerless gloves and a toque.  Made it through all three sets of music.

Next morning I woke up and could barely speak.

Go Caroling around the holidays in the real hardcore cold.  Stay out there for a few hours and sing for most of them.  Then get up the next morning and see how you sound.

There's a show if you want to go. You can find someone who really loves you. So you go on your own and you stand on your own and you go home and you cry and you want to die.

Sounds like they got what they asked for

"postponed due to those chilly 40-degree temps-never mind that that figure, which represents the low temp in Paso Robles that night, makes for a pleasant November day just about anywhere in the country."

Spoken like a true northerner.

There are plenty of places in this country where 40 is considered uncomfortably cold. I'd go so far as to say it is in close to half of it, at least most places in the south or west.

Can this pussy who does nothing but fu*king whine please just disappear? Or could articles about him stop being greenlit instead of those that are actually important and/or entertaining? Or is that the (Welcome to Fark) joke?

Are we sure he wasn't having a hissy fit because the venue was still selling meat products?

I bought Morrissey tickets twice in the early 90s. Twice he refused to show up. I won't be falling for that trick again.

Mozz was playing Paso Robles? Jeez. I remember what a podunk town it was in the 80s, although it did have an A&W.

Or be a real vocalist and know that colder environments are ideal for vocal training.

I'm no singer, but his voice is his livelihood, so I guess he knows best.
