The singer's highly eventful European tour hit the German city on Nov. 17 for a gig at the CCH1 venue, and during the show a heckler was ejected at Morrissey's request. The aftermath of the incident was captured by a fan-shot video and uploaded to YouTube alongside a description of the clip which suggests that the incident was the result of comments Morrissey had made.
The singer is said to have "cracked a joke" about "Hamburgers," saying that they should be called "Hamburgists." Apparently a fan then reacted strongly to this by shouting "f--- you" at the singer. In the video Morrissey can then be seen responding by pointing at the man before addressing him through his microphone.
"Go. We don't need you, we don't need you," he says while directing the heckler to the venue's exits. He then adds: "In fact you can leave and you can f--- yourself. Go, go!" Another fan can then be heard shouting, "Well done Morrissey!"
Security guards then appear to seemingly deal with the fan while the former Smiths frontman crosses the stage to shake hands with other audience members. Once he's happy that the situation has been resolved his band then launch into a rendition of his old band's classic 'Ask.'
The tour continues in Munich in Friday (Nov. 20) before moving on to Dublin on Nov. 23. Morrissey then embarks on a short US tour beginning in Seattle on Nov. 29.
