Morrissey has postponed his first Canadian tour in almost two decades due to a “medical emergency.” He was slated to perform at the Orpheum in Vancouver tonight and tomorrow, but the Vancouver Civic Theatres announced that the shows will be moved to 10/14 and 10/15. His Edmonton show, originally planned for 4/18 at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium, will now take place on 10/10.

“Spirits are high,” the Vancouver Civic Theatres’ statement reads. “The artist is on the path to a swift recovery.” On 4/26, he will perform in Toronto and all remaining tour dates will continue as planned. Morrissey will begin his Broadway residency in May. His new covers album, California Son, comes out 5/24. In September, he will embark on a US fall tour with Interpol.
