Morrissey Wednesday night show at Tobin Center canceled

Show canceled following health concerns, representative says

Morrissey: The former Smiths frontman and animal rights activist is well known for being a vegetarian, especially following his February 2013 war of words with Jimmy Kimmel. The singer pulled out of an appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" because the cast members from "Duck Dynasty" were going to be on as guests. "As far as my reputation is concerned, I can't take the risk of being on a show alongside people who, in effect, amount to animal serial killers," Morrissey said in a statement, sparking a week-long feud between the singer and the comedian.
