Turns out that Morrissey story we heard this a.m. isn't so much rumor as meaty fact: An AEG Live rep tells Unfair Park they're gonna "try to work around" that Gilley's BBQ stank whilst Morrissey's moaning at the Palladium. How? Well, a Friend of Unfair Park who knows to always tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth sends word:
"I was told by the guy who runs the house that the crew started burning incense yesterday in the hopes that the BBQ smell won't waft over to the Palladium side of the building."
To which we say, as always, good luck with all that. --Robert Wilonsky
