Morrissey Attacked On Stage During San Diego Concert!

Morrissey flees stage after being ‘punched in the head

Morrissey's encore performance in San Diego Saturday night was cut a little short, after some overzealous fans chose to rush the stage.

The Suedehead star was performing his song Everyday is Like Sunday during an encore at the San Diego Symphony Hall when a small group of concertgoers rushed the stage.

Morrissey immediately left the stage after the encounter and did not return for an encore.

He was quickly ushered off stage as security got things under control, moving the attacker out in a chokehold.

It isn't clear as to why fans struck Morrissey, but in the past, he has made controversial comments in the media regarding immigration and other contentious subjects related to the United Kingdom and the nation's politics.

"Nobody tried to punch M last night". Security was able to wrangle a few people away, while Morrissey reached so they could touch him. The fans were simply doing what they have been doing for nearly 30 years.

We don't know if Morrissey was injured during the attack.

The San Diego Union-Tribune claims nobody called the police on Saturday night either. British singer Morrissey, 59, is reportedly on a tour that's made several stops in California and is next scheduled to hit Mexico City later this month.
