Morrissey Denies He Is Playing Riot Fest

Welcome to another fun episode of “Is Morrissey playing this show or not?” Last week, Riot Fest, the massive punk-leaning festival, announced Morrissey — alongside the reunited Misfits and Ween — as one of the headliners of its Chicago edition, which is coming to Douglas Park 9/16-18. But last night, Morrissey’s True To You website posted a statement that simply read “As of this date (May 23), Morrissey is not a part of this year’s Chicago Riot Fest.” We probably won’t know for sure if he’s playing the show until he actually shows up onstage, or until he doesn’t.
