And again, a cloud of uncertainty lingers over the tour, although that should hardly come as a surprise. Earlier this week, Moz walked offstage in Tucson after only six songs, which is still six more than San Antonio fans got upon the announcement that Wednesday’s performance was canceled altogether. But now comes an unexpected twist worthy of Morrissey’s best material: Rather than canceling Friday’s scheduled appearance at White Oak Music Hall, the concert has simply been moved to the Smart Financial Centre in Sugar Land.
Too much rain on the lawn, it seems. But the new venue is bigger, meaning more tickets will be available; through StubWire, as before. On sale as we speak, in fact. According to a spokesperson from White Oak Music Hall, all existing tickets for the balcony and hilltop at White Oak will be moved to Smart Centre's orchestra pit. Tickets ordered through Will Call will transfer to the new venue's Will Call window. The announced showtime of 7 p.m. is expected to stay the same.
Somewhere, previously frustrated Morrissey fans could be rethinking their gloomy outlook on the world. We hope some of them are from San Antonio.
