Morrissey cancels more shows due to illness after b’day gigMay 26th, 2009 - 4:37 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, May 26 (ANI): Just two days after marking his 50th birthday with a homecoming set in Manchester, singer Morrissey has cancelled gig dates because of ill-health.
The ex ‘Smiths’ frontman cancelled his May 25th’s show at the Salisbury City Hall and May 26th’s concert at the Troxy Ballroom in Mile End, east London.
Labelled the “greatest lyricist of his generation” this week, the singer-songwriter has been warned not to sing by doctors, said a spokeswoman.
“Morrissey is on doctor’s orders to postpone the show, to ensure a complete recuperation,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
She added: “Event organisers would like to apologise to fans for the disappointment and are working to reschedule this show, so advise ticket holders to hang on to their tickets.”
Apparently, these are not the first on the 50-year-old’s world tour with shows at the Royal Albert Hall and Birmingham Academy called off while an appearance on ‘Later… With Jools Holland’ was also scrapped.
However, the cancelled Birmingham and Albert Hall shows have now been rescheduled as part of a small October tour, it was announced last week. (ANI)
