Singer ducks US talk show

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

has can­celled his ap­pear­ance on the US talk show Jimmy Kim­mel Live be­cause cast mem­bers of a re­al­ity se­ries called Duck Dy­nasty are on the same show. Mor­ris­sey, the out­spo­ken Bri­tish singer and an­i­mal rights ac­tivist says he can­celled his ap­pear­ance be­cause he can’t per­form on a show with what he calls ‘‘peo­ple who amount to an­i­mal se­rial killers’’. Duck Dy­nasty is a re­al­ity show which fol­lows the Robert­son fam­ily (pic­tured) of Louisiana who run a busi­ness sell­ing duck calls and de­coys. Amer­ica’s A&E net­work, which airs the se­ries, did not re­spond to re­quests for com­ment from it and the Robert­son fam­ily, but a per­son fa­mil­iar with the Kim­mel show plans con­firms Mor­ris­sey was to ap­pear. Mor­ris­sey’s per­for­mance will be resched­uled. Mor­ris­sey is back on the road af­ter post­pon­ing US shows due to a bleed­ing ul­cer. His gigs in­clude a spe­cial show at Hol­ly­wood High School and a much-an­tic­i­pated con­cert at the Sta­ples Cen­tre, where Mor­ris­sey will be joined by rocker Patti Smith. The Ev­ery­day is Like Sun­day singer was forced to put his tour on hold in Jan­uary af­ter be­ing di­ag­nosed with a bleed­ing ul­cer and Bar­rett’s esoph­a­gus. His re­vamped North Amer­i­can tour runs un­til the end of April.
