Concert Notes

Kristeen Young's comments on stage that lead to her dismissal and her reply via MySpace were captured via DigitalSpy on October 29, 2007:

"Morrissey has sacked the support act on his US tour after she made a "profane" remark about him on stage.

Kristeen Young joked about the singer's sexual skills when the crowd began chanting his name during a concert in New York.

She reportedly told the audience: "Morrissey gives good head, I mean, er, cunnilingus..."

Young defended her comment on her MySpace page, writing: "Unfortunately, the statement has been perceived as being profane (when, actually, one of the two words in question is a scientific term found in junior high health class text books, and the other word, I feel most would agree, is lightweight slang) or defamatory.

"What I said was part of a thread of stage statements I made throughout our set. [The statements] were metaphorical and overstated to make an artistic point. The 'offending' statement, in particular, was in no way a literal statement, and was very much in keeping with the tone of my writing in general."

She added: "Maybe I misjudged... but I meant no harm. I love Morrissey with all of my heart, soul, body, spirit, to the core of my existence and always will."

Morrissey will be supported by Texas three-piece Girl In A Coma for the rest of the tour."
