Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – British rock legend Morrissey postponed six of his U.S. concerts following Friday’s hospitalization as he was diagnosed with a bleeding ulcer.
The former Smiths front man checked into the Royal Oak’s William Beaumont Hospital for a ‘suspected bladder infection’ and was released over the weekend after the diagnosis.
A statement from spokesperson Laura Papapietro confirms the rocker’s condition. It reads:
“Following hospital treatment, Morrissey has been diagnosed with a bleeding ulcer and the upcoming engagements in Asheville, NC, Nashville, TN, Atlanta, GA, Lawrence, KS, Clear Lake, IA and Lincoln, NE will need to be rescheduled. Morrissey is expected to make a full recovery and thanks everyone concerned for their support during this time. The tour will resume in Las Vegas on Saturday, February 9. Patrons are encouraged to hold on to their tickets as all rescheduled dates will be announced within the coming days.”
“Morrissey apologizes greatly for any and all inconvenience and looks forward to continuing his US tour.” Morrissey’s tour finale is on March 8 in Portland.
