Morrissey 'punched in the head' on stage during gig


It went down at the San Diego Symphony Hall, as the singer was about to do an encore at the end of his performance.

One of the crowd members apparently struck Morrissey in the face, TMZ reported.

Singer Morrissey was having such a lovely time at the Copley Symphony Hall in San Diego on Saturday night, that he chose to come back out on stage and give the audience an encore performance.

Carlos wrote on social media that he knew it "looked bad" but he would never attack Morrissey.

The man was eventually taken away by security while Morrissey cancelled the rest of the evening and did not return to the stage.

Yesterday, Morrissey's manager moved to thwart any stories of Morrissey being hurt in any way and released a statement on Facebook regarding the incident.

"Trying anything they could do to jump onstage and touch him, or hug him". This is absolute crap. Katsis disputes claims that Morrissey was attacked by a fan, saying "Morrissey's fans are not malicious". I was honoured and grateful for such an excited and loving response.

Later the representative of the musician, commenting on the event said: "Fans just doing what they have been doing for 30 years". "TMZ, alas, live exclusively in a world of their own, and certain sections of the press seem enraged that there is nothing negative to report".
