One said: ‘This sucks! Why cancel so suddenly at the Greek theatre’.

A third agreed, writing: ‘SPENT LIKE 450 JUST FOR HIM TO STOP 30 MINUTES IN HIS SET DONT BUY TICKETS FOR HIS SHOW ITS A WASTE OF MONEY AND GAS’.

And a fourth wrote: ‘If you can’t hang, don’t tour anymore. Money is tight for everyone these days & people saved money to see you, what a disappointment you are.’ 

However, one fan came to Morrissey’s defence and wrote: ‘I think it’s absolutely right that a man in his 60’s makes his health & well-being a priority, even if it means rescheduling a show. 

‘Sad that so many people that are apparently big enough fans to go to a Morrissey show are angry at him for the unforgivable crime of being human.’
