‘This rich, has-been, ego maniac’: Morrissey is allegedly trying to cancel PAWS + We Are Scientists’ gig tonight


UPDATE 7:39 pm EST: The show will go on, we’re told. Whew!

Morrissey’s long-awaited North American tour just started last night, but it’s already generating headlines, both for his unveiling of new music and the abrupt end to the opening gig in San Jose after fans stormed the stage.

Now, the Mozzer is getting dragged through the mud by Scottish band PAWS, who are claiming that the singer has tried to get their show tonight with We Are Scientists in Orange County cancelled. According to the band — who seem to have a very animal-friendly name! — Morrissey doesn’t want another show going on in the same venue, in this case the Observatory.

Morrissey is no stranger to cancellations, so he’s likely familiar with the process.


Our friends at Bullett Media broke the news a few minutes ago, re-posting a message PAWS wrote on their Facebook wall.

They did not hold back…

Morrissey is currently trying to have our slot at tonights show in Santa Ana, California cancelled because he is playing in another room in the same venue and wishes for their to be no other artists performing in his vicinity.

This is an unbelievable act of complete and utter selfishness that should not be tolerated. This rich, has-been, ego maniac acting like a baby throwing toys from a pram. To satisfy his little power hungry brain. A complete disregard for others and a baffling lack of support/respect for young, hard working musicians.


People like this, with attitudes like this displays a classic example of why the music industry is still awash with disgusting garbage that should by now have been snuffed out. Pedestals, self righteous entitlement, disrespect and “competition”. Geez. It’s not like we’ve come all the way from Scotland to play for nothin’…

I’m just going to leave this photo and sentiment with you and we’ll report back with developments. We won’t go out without a fight!

What do you all think?
