Morrissey has a habit of canceling tour dates, and we tend to make a habit of poking fun at him for it. Well, Moz has once again axed a number of upcoming concerts, but this time we can’t begrudge him the reasoning.

Keyboardist Gustavo Mazur collapsed backstage before Morrissey’s sold-out show at Colorado’s Boulder Theater On Monday night. They waited to see if he’d recover, but 35 minutes later were forced to cancel the show. Though it was originally thought Mazur would be well enough to continue on with the tour, Morrissey has now announced the cancelation of three more dates. All of his planned shows in Texas — tonight in Dallas, the 17th in San Antonio, and the 18th in Houston — have been scrapped.

“This is a family, we stay together, and we can’t move until we know what’s happened to him,” Morrissey said at the Boulder show. As of now, the final three shows on his current tour are expected to go on as planned. Find those dates below.
