Morrissey fans are a glutton for abuse. The singer’s tours have been famously plagued with cancellations. His latest string of canceled concerts began with Morrissey’s desire to be by his ailing mother’s side. The next set of shows went up in smoke due to a bleeding ulcer, not surprising for a man that caries the weight of the world on his shoulders.

On Saturday, Morrissey posted a detailed apology to fan site True To You explaining his thoughts behind the latest string of canceled shows saying “the patient must be patient.”

As for the remaining shows in San Diego and Los Angeles, L.A’s 20,000 seat Staples Center will go meatless on March 1. McDonalds and other vendors offering “flesh as food” will be closed day of show. Morrissey commented, “I don’t look upon it as a victory for me but a victory for the animals.” To hit home the message, a portion of the ticket proceeds will benefit PETA.

Staples Center was recently name the most vegetarian–friendly NBA venue in the U.S. by PETA.

Morrissey surprised fans by walking off the stage during his 2009Coachella set, siting that he could “smell burning flesh.” Goldenvoice, the festival’s organizer offered to go 100% vegetarian the following year if Morrissey would unite with The Smiths. He said no.

Morrissey’s remaining dates:

February 27 – San Diego, CA @ Balboa Theatre
March 1 – Los Angeles, CA @ Staples Center

– Jay Tilles, CBS Local
