Published Nov 20, 2014Even when Morrissey doesn't cancel his live shows, they don't always go smoothly for the outspoken former Smiths star. This became apparent last night (November 19), when Moz reportedly ended a concert in Poland after just 25 minutes due to a heckler.
Moz was performing at Warsaw's Klub Stodola and was just six songs in when, according to reports, he left due to comments from someone near the stage. In a statement, Live Nation explained that "one of the members of the audience standing close to the stage directed extremely offensive and chauvinistic words" towards the singer.
A fan told the Daily Mail that the heckler made a comment about Morrissey's recent cancer scare. The vocalist apparently asked security to remove the man before walking off himself.
To make up for the shortened performance, Live Nation has invited fans from the Warsaw gig to come Morrissey's Friday night (November 21) show in Kraków, Poland. That city is around 300 km away, however, so it's not exactly a convenient commute. Let's hope that the heckler doesn't take Live Nation up on the offer.
This comes just a couple days after Morrissey called off his upcoming show in Lausanne, Switzerland, which had been due to take place on December 13.
UPDATE: A video of the incident has surfaced online. You can catch the drama starting at the 8:40 mark.
