Morrissey Storms Off Stage in Poland After Heckler Makes Him Feel ‘Unsafe’, the British singer was just 25 minutes into his show at the city’s Klub Stodola on Wednesday night, November 19 when he stormed off the stage after he reportedly heard an audience member’s words.
”One of the spectators standing close to the stage said some extremely offensive and chauvinistic things to the artist,” concert promoter Live Nation explained to Daily Mail. According to Express, the audience member made a joke about cancer, an illness the star underwent a series of treatments for recently.
Knowing Morrissey wouldn’t be resuming the concert, fans got angry. The promoter later offered them an opportunity to attend Mos’ upcoming concert in Krakow for free. However, a number of fans demanded to get their money refunded.
They also vented their frustration on Stodola’s Facebook page. “He’s been performing on stage all these years and he still hasn’t grasped that amongst several hundred people there’s always one arse?” a female fan wrote. ”This is basic lack of professionalism and diva behavior.”
