Morrissey @ The Observatory 5/8/2014 (via @reezy_jay)

We haven't heard from Morrissey himself regarding the whole rigamarole over Thursday night's show at The Observatory in Santa Ana, CA (5/8) where the We Are Scientists / PAWS show at the adjacent The Constellation Room was nearly canceled but then pushed till after Moz's show ended. (We've heard plenty from PAWS and WAS.) Morrissey, via a publicist, however, has written in to Pitchfork, simply saying:

Morrissey had nothing to do with this. As long as there was no sound bleed, Morrissey was completely fine with another show going on inside the same complex."
As for Moz's show last night, it went off without any him being mauled by fans (too much). For this tour he's switched up some of his older songs, putting The Smiths' "Hand in Glove" back in rotation for the first time in 10 years, and he's also doing "Yes I Am Blind" (originally the b-side to "Ouija Board, Ouija Board"). You can check out his Observatory setlist below.

Morrissey comes to NYC at Barclays Center on June 21 with Sir Cliff Richard and Kristeen Young (still tickets available) and his new album, World Peace is None of Your Business, is out in July.

"Morrissey had nothing to do with this. As long as there was no sound bleed, Morrissey was completely fine with another show going on inside the same complex"

it's stated he had nothing to do with it, yet in the very next sentence his condition for performing is detailed. naturally his publicist is trying to spin a bullshit retrograde excuse that absolves Borrisey. i guess it'd be too much to ask for that excuse not to contain a glaring contradiction.

There should be no other concerts in 100 mile radius when morrissey performs. He is near and dear.
