And then there was one. One iconic musician performing in the Denver metro area on November 3rd that is. While Leonard Cohen will still take the stage at Broomfield's First Bank Center, Morrissey has postponed all remaining U.S. tour dates, including his concert in Denver, in order to spend time with his ailing mother.

According to Morrissey's fan site, the musician will return to England, where his mother has been hospitalized. The statement encourages those who purchased tickets for the upcoming performances to hold on to them. New dates are expected to be announced shortly. The Moz was scheduled to appear at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House in Denver on November 3, 2012.

The musician fronted The Smiths, one of Britain's most notable alternative indie rock bands, in the 80s. Since the group disbanded in 1987, Morrissey has focused on a solo career.
