Music icon Morrissey made a rare appearance at Tucson's Fox theatre on April 10th. Tickets for the event were sold out within a day. Excitement was buzzing around town as the event drew closer. The buzz came to a crashing halt when Morrissey walked off the stage after performing only six songs.

The theatre was busting at the seems with fans. The show started with a 30-minute video of snippets of rock performances in the past that started with the Ramones, James Brown, Dionne Warwick, Public Enemy, and more. As the film faded, the dangerously dapper Morrissey appeared on stage and took a bow before starting the queasily delightful "Suedehead" from his debut solo album. His voice seemed to be pure and strong - his performance sincere and natural.

Morrissey then spoke to the crowd and said, "It seems I left part of my mouth in Guadalajara." and hastily left the stage. One of the band members announced, "His voice is shot. You heard him, he tried. We're sorry His voice is shot."

Initially, no refunds were made. However, The Fox Theatre is offering four different options to the patrons and are trying to negotiate a possible rescheduling of the show.
Set List:
1. Suedehead
2. Alma Matters
3. When Last I Spoke to Carol
4. Speedway
5. Staircase at the University
6. Everyday Is Like Sunday
