Morrissey has now canceled the remaining 6 dates of his rescheduled U.S. tour. In an announcement titled "There Is A Light That Now Goes Out" Morrissey made it official on True To You:
"The band, the crew and I are heartbroken to hear that the final six shows of our triumphant tour will be 'pulled down'. The shock and sadness that we all feel - for ourselves, and for our devoted friends in Detroit, Cleveland, Chicago, Houston, Dallas and San Antonio, has left us in unrecoverable despair."
The posting went on to discuss Morrissey's favorite cities on the tour, then made another comment about the canceled shows:
"We expect no further chances in Detroit, Chicago, Cleveland, Houston, Dallas or San Antonio ... nights destroyed by the ephemeral damagers ... who do their worst ... and slip away.
I can only stress my sincere thanks once again to YOU for giving the band, the crew and I a phenomenal year - scarred at the end, but drenched in beauty until then.
I will see you in extremely far-off places."
