Watch: Footage appears to show Morrissey being punched on stage

Footage has appeared online that appears to show Morrissey being attacked while performing on stage in San Diego – and you can watch it right here.

The former frontman of The Smiths may have been punched in the face as fans stormed the stage while he was performing his 1988 hit, Every Day Is Like Sunday.

In the footage, one crowd member who stormed the stage appears to strike Mozza in the face, causing the singer to leave the stage and the song to end abruptly.

Before the incident, the singer is seen reaching out to the other fans who climbed on stage while the bouncers struggle to control them.

Morrissey’s manager, Peter Katsis, has denied that the singer was punched, saying that “Morrissey’s fans are not malicious. The fans were simply doing what they have been doing for almost 30 years.”
