In a disappointing turn of events for fans across South America, the renowned English singer Morrissey has been compelled to cancel his concert in Mexico and postpone all remaining tour dates in the region due to a bout of dengue fever contracted in Mexico City. The former frontman of The Smiths had been eagerly anticipated to perform on September 10 at Palacio de Los Deportes in Mexico City, with subsequent shows lined up in Peru, Colombia, Chile, Argentina, and Brazil.
The official statement from Morrissey’s management, published on the artist’s website, morrisseycentral.com, provides insight into the situation:
“Morrissey’s arrival in Mexico City has regrettably resulted in a contraction of dengue fever. This virus typically necessitates 2-3 weeks for recovery. While we refrain from categorizing it as a cancellation of shows, the infection renders the immediate two weeks unfeasible.”
As reported by Chaoszine – This unforeseen health setback has left fans disappointed but understanding of the circumstances that have led to the temporary suspension of Morrissey’s South American tour. Despite this setback, the artist’s dedicated following remains hopeful for his swift recovery and eagerly anticipates his return to the stage, with the tour expected to resume in Florida.
In the world of live music, unexpected challenges occasionally arise, and artists’ health and well-being must take precedence. As Morrissey battles dengue fever and recuperates, fans worldwide unite in their support and eagerly await the day when his music will once again fill concert venues across South America and beyond.
What will happen next? Tough to say as Morrissey is very in and out with many things as you all are well aware of, surely though, this will be made up in time – if the Florida shows do happen, which will be a treat for many to witness.
