Morrissey is infamous for canceling tours (really, really, really infamous). And, after the fickle musician was listed on the lineup for the Chicago Riot Fest last week, a one-sentence post appeared on the official Moz fan website, True to You, saying that Morrissey would not be performing at the festival, which takes place Sept. 16-18 at Douglas Park.

Maybe Morrissey will use this newfound free time to run for mayor or to rewrite his book instead. Riot Fest organizers have yet to comment on the apparent miscommunication between them and their would-be headliner.
