Morrissey says he was not attacked on stage in San Diego
If you’ve ever seen a Morrissey concert, you have probably seen fans rush the stage, or try to. Morrissey fans want to hug him. TMZ reported that Saturday night in San Diego, during “Every Day is Like Sunday,” one fan attacked Morrissey which caused the show to be ended early. Morrissey has now said, via manager Peter Katsis, that it was just an overzealous fan. Via Morrissey’s Facebook:
“Nobody tried to punch M last night. Morrissey’s fans are not malicious. The fans were simply doing what they have been doing for almost 30 years. Trying anything they could do to jump onstage and touch him, or hug him. The fan in question was certainly more aggressive in reaching out for him than most, so security had to do their job and subdue the fan. That’s all it was. In the end no one was hurt, and no one was arrested.” – Peter Katsis
