Morrissey Fans to Sue KROQ?
Sep 21, 2004
Morrissey fans who feel jilted that a Los Angeles radio station withheld information about Morrissey's cancellation may be plotting a class-action lawsuit.
While no papers have been filed, an anonymous poster on Morrissey-solo.com claimed that a $50 million class action lawsuit against KROQ was in the works. The lawsuit alleges the radio station knew of the illness that sidelined Morrissey at 11 a.m., but didn't spread word until 7 p.m. in order to keep attendence high and concession-money flowing until the end of the show. The poster claims KROQ brought in $14 million in concessions at its Inland Invasion show this weekend.
After coming down with sinusitis and laryngitis, Morrissey was forced to cancel an appearance Saturday (Sept. 18).
Doctors advised the Pope of Mope not to talk for at least two days. The news came the morning before he was to play KROQ's Inland Invasion 4 in Los Angeles. Disappointed fans have been told to hold onto their ticket stub for a makeup performance when Morrissey feels better, though a date has not been announced.

Actually Ian Brown of the Stone Roses mentioned it before 4 pm and the official word was well before 7 pm.
Pictures of Inland Invasion 4
Well, it was a great show and I managed to snap some photos of all the artists from the decent seat I had in the Orchestra section. (yes, some of Ian Brown also). If there is enough interest I can set up an album or something online so you all can see. I've also have excellent footage of Billy Idol and Siouxsie's performance at the show. And as for the announcement of Morrissey's non performance, it was posted on the net around 12p.m. and announced at the concert by Ian Brown during his performance, hours before 7 p.m. Why sue when you're getting 2 concerts for the price of one?
Props to Texicana who has ESP.
