I believe for the first time, at the request of Morrissey, that all food vendors at the Staples Center was 100% vegetarian. Why are you eating at a Morrissey show anyway? .…
We had hoped, after seeing him fit on stage in early March, that he's fully recovered, but that is just not the case. Morrissey, we hope you get better.
Official statement from true-to-you:
"It takes a lifetime to find the right words, and at the moment, I haven't got them. I've been a colossal pain where this continuously unpredictable illness is concerned, and now the physical limits have been reached. The tour had, in fact, been fantastic for all of us - a new slice of life full of concentrated power. The audiences everywhere have given so much, although I know that neither of us will ever receive our due. I hope this isn't the end, and I hope there will be other chances, minus the heavy burden of illness. Knots of grief today, but full of resolve for tomorrow."
- Morrissey, Mexico, 16 March.
