Morrissey Plays Myrtle Beach, Cancels Atlanta – Tour Already In Trouble?

How do you know when Morrissey is on tour? When he starts canceling dates.
Rumors are flying fast and furious over at Moz-solo.com. After canceling the first few dates of his US tour (all of them in Florida), Morrissey released the following statement:

“I have survived the interrogation of Atlanta’s Immigration officials and Myrtle Beach shall have me tomorrow nite (Friday), and the world from then onwards … if the world can take it. One of the many penalties of being human is that tours often take a military push to start, well, all of our answers will be in our songs tomorrow night. The bloodbath starts at 7.30. Life is testing you out. Be ready for anything.”

He then goes on to play the Myrtle Beach show. Here’s the setlist:
Something Is Squeezing My Skull / Mama Lay Softly On The Riverbed / This Charming Man / Black Cloud / Best Friend On The Payroll / First Of The Gang To Die / I’m Throwing My Arms Around Paris / How Can Anybody Possibly Know How I Feel? / Seasick, Yet Still Docked / Ask / Sister, I’m A Poet / All You Need Is Me / I Keep Mine Hidden / The World Is Full Of Crashing Bores / Life Is A Pigsty / How Soon Is Now?
Someone in the forums noted that there was a very abrupt end to the show (three other songs were on the setlist and were not played) and there were fears Atlanta would be canceled. Sure enough, that’s what happened. The anonymous tipster also said “this tour is in serious trouble.” Not the first time a Moz tour has been in jeopardy and it likely will not be the last.
I hope Mozzer gets it together before he plays D.C. next weekend.
