Washington, May 25 (ANI): British singer Morrissey celebrated his 50 birthday in a jam-packed musical event in his hometown on May 22.
Despite being asked to cancel his shows to recover from a mystery illness, the singer seemed healthy and in high spirits as he celebrated half a century at England’s Manchester Apollo.
Morrissey was also seen shaking hands with his fans hands and cracking jokes about his “fifty gruesome years”, before his backing band surprised him by launching into a version of Happy Birthday, which the crowd sang along to.
According to Contactmusic, he responded: “I’m not 50, I’m actually 40/10.”
The tickets for the special birthday gig were sold out within 15 minutes of the opening. (ANI)
