Day 2137 - Inside

Yesterday afternoon, Morrissey's SOLD OUT show that had been 'scheduled' for last night in San Antonio was cancelled. There are two more shows 'scheduled' on this tour, in Houston and Dallas tomorrow and Saturday, but I get the feeling that they won't go ahead, and I also get the feeling that although Morrissey is obviously ill, he has been really pissed off by the US tour promoter, and will be quite happy if he is causing them a little inconvenience.

An announcement made on Tuesday by Tucson Theatre Executive Director, Craig Sumberg, said that, "there apparently was an agreement between the promoters and Morrissey's management that Monday's concert was not a "formal show"". NOT...A...FORMAL...SHOW! Things are suddenly starting to make sense.

Could it be that the US tour promotors weren't prepared to offer Morrissey the usual terms of a booking - whatever usual terms may be - but agreed to promote the concerts as 'scheduled informal shows'? I would guess that the promotors didn't believe that Morrissey would sell out the venues. As Dawn stated yesterday, "Confirm me. Don't schedule me."


In yesterday's FTM comments section, GWO reminded us all that when TTY  announced back in February that Tucson and San Antonio were sold out, the following words were included in the statement (along with an image of Silvia Dionisio from A Girl Called Jules), "THE BLACK PEAT OF THE HILLS WHEN I WAS STILL ILL".... it's almost as though Morrissey knew that he would be ill.


The only other thing that I have to report today, is that my forthcoming interview with Morrissey, 'confirmed' for tomorrow, won't consist entirely of questions from me after all. Morfessa took to Twitter yesterday afternoon to say:

"Another entity has some of her own burning questions to ask. Even though she may already know the answers."

Morfessa's only other offerings yesterday were to berate me for moaning about being ill, and to play the song Inside by Ray Wilson on the Wrong Arms jukebox. When I asked if it was a sign, Morfessa replied, "Not everything is a sign. Behave." I seem to recall reading somewhere once that Morrissey liked that song, but I may be wrong.

*Goes off singing* And if you think that I've been losing my way, that's because I'm slightly blinded, and if you think that I don't make too much sense, that's because I'm broken minded

*LATE ADDITION - 10pm* It has today been announced that tomorrow's 'scheduled' Morrissey concert ' in Houston has been moved from the original outside venue to an INSIDE venue! "Behave", my arse! The good news is, tomorrow's concert looks like it could be going ahead. Now then, where's that 'coincidence' list?

  1. The TTY photo is certainly an interesting coincidence. Looking forward to the interview - I do hope it's actually confirmed and not merely scheduled.

  2. Hello Ratty, I don't know what to think about the picture posted on February, all I know is that Forgive Someone is a very powerful song, the first time I heard that I thought Morrissey, expecially in that quote, was asking for forgiveness to all his long arrays of cancellations due illness, but, of course, there's nothing to forgive, it's simply life. The movie is very rilevant, because it's the story of a girl with a total refusal for sex and the novel which the movie is based was labeled as pornography and revived very bad reviews, so the author, a very sensible woman, suffered a lot and disappeared from the public scene. I just want to see Morrissey happy! That's all, ciao.😘

  4. Oh more coincidences! They appear to happen a lot around here.
    Forgive Someone is a beautiful song, I experience it as very tender & heartfelt.

  7. My premonitions are my notion. My senses nonsensical. My gut feelings are wrenching to my very core.
    I can neither confirm or deny schedules. You shall remain in the light, whilst I remain in the murky dark solace of the canal.
    My fever continues. I feel more alive when rumoured dead. My soul is laden with all the misery of blind glamour. Glamour is repellent, as unpleasant as glass ripping through the eye. Blinded with terror. Blinded with distaste.
    My manuscripts are my guides, my galaxy of dread and trials.

  8. The moonlight hour encircles me. The ghost wraps me in shades of blue and gold. The clouds beckon me. I dance my life before my very lips.
    Deadly doors close as divine drawers open. The flight of sixty-nine easels of doubt, shock and rock my visible wings.
    Gliding and guiding.
    The brush falls to the bottom of the ocean, unheard, unseen, undead.
    Welcome to my locket. The omen of the unhealthy truth.

  9. Years are not on my radar. I exist only to read stars and count books.
    Weather means nothing to my flightless wings, which flutter as I weep. Tears of lost sailors. Tears of lost crooks.
    Vanity is my forte. Vanity and humiliation.
