A post on the unofficial Morrissey website, True To You reads, “As of this date (May 23), Morrissey is not a part of this year’s Chicago Riot Fest.” Morrissey has had a history of canceling shows and tours, so the news isn’t too surprising.

Consequence of Sound, who broke the story writes, “Perhaps there was a miscommunication between the artist and the festival? We’ve reached out to Riot Fest for comment, but have yet to hear back. Riot Fest Chicago, whether Morrissey’s on board or not, goes down September 16th – 18th at Douglas Park.”

For now, we play the waiting game.
