According to a statement on Morrissey's official website, he's pulled out of the Isle of Wight festival.

The statement reads: " Morrissey will regrettably not be appearing at the Isle Of Wight Festival on the 11th of June as scheduled. The pressure of preparing the new album and losing his drummer earlier this month has made it impossible to do the gig without massively compromising both the gig and the album. Apologies to all the fans, the organisers and the people of the Isle Of Wight."

His cancellation is officially confirmed by the organisers, although as yet there's no word on a replacement. Hopefully, another act can be found at short notice to fill the headline slot on the Saturday night, which Morrissey was due to play.
