Morrissey abandoned his Los Angeles Greek Theater concert on Saturday night after just 30 minutes, angering fans on Reddit.
Mehtevas52 posted, “He just cancelled the show after maybe 30 minutes of music… we waited longer for fries and tater tots.”

He played 5 songs, complained about how cold it was and said, ‘but we’ll sweat through it.’ He kept going backstage in between songs for 5-10 minutes each time. His band looked uncomfortable and his guitarist tried to improvise to keep us entertained by mumbling something into the mic every so often. After some time standing awkwardly on stage, a stagehand appeared and whispered something to the band. Then the band promptly walked offstage. 5 minutes later, someone came back out and addressed the audience, ‘We are sorry, but due to some unforeseen circumstances blah, blah, blah…’ Lights came back on and we all filed away grunting and groaning.
When I buy a Morrissey ticket, I do so with the understanding that he’s a f**kin Diva and that there is a chance he will: A. Not show up, B. Leave halfway, or C. come on drunk and keep dropping the mic like he did last time I saw him at the Hollywood Bowl several years back. It’s part of the show. Am I upset? Not really. I”m more disappointed that I didn’t get to hear him play How Soon is Now? while a handful of boys rush the stage to try to touch the ‘hem of his garment’, then get tackled by a 300 pound security guy. Will I buy a ticket the next time he comes around? Probably.”
