"Apparently he was too cold."
Fans in LA have been left scratching their head after Morrissey abruptly ended a show over the weekend.
As fans at the Greek Theatre report, the singer walked off stage around 30 minutes into the show after only nine songs with no warning.
Footage from the event shows Morrissey exiting after performing Smiths’ single Girlfriend In A Coma, leaving his band to inform the crowd the show had been cancelled after an awkward few minutes.
“Sorry, but due to unforeseen circumstances, the show is not going to continue. Very sorry. We’ll see you next time. Apologies,” they said.
Morrissey is yet to comment on the incident, however, his official Facebook page has shared: “Thank you for coming out last night, LA. We love you and are grateful for your support. Please stand by for further announcements coming shortly.”
