Morrissey had to cut one of his gigs over the weekend a little short due to fans storming the stage.
Singer Morrissey was having such a lovely time at the Copley Symphony Hall in San Diego on Saturday night, that he decided to come back out on stage and give the audience an encore performance. Little did the 'Tomorrow' singer know that his decision would make the night one night be remember.
From the video below, you can see many people stormed Morrissey was he was finishing up his final song. Pay close attention to the guy who seems to burst out onto the stage.

Here's another angle from higher up at the Hall.
Many news companies reported that the singer was "attacked" by that "aggressive" man. It turns out however, Morrissey wasn't hurt at all.
Morrissey’s manager Peter Katsis has provided a statement on his Facebook page. Katsis disputes claims that Morrissey was attacked by a fan, saying "Morrissey’s fans are not malicious. The fans were simply doing what they have been doing for almost 30 years.
"Trying anything they could do to jump onstage and touch him, or hug him. The fan in question was certainly more aggressive in reaching out for him than most, so security had to do their job and subdue the fan. That’s all it was."
Katsis also said in his statement that no one was arrested for the stage surge, and the singer is fit and well.
