Morrissey Postpones More Concerts
Morrissey has postponed yet another group of shows as he undergoes treatment for a bleeding ulcer. Three concerts scheduled for this week — in Denver, Salt Lake City and San Francisco — are all put on hold while the singer recovers.
But apparently his illness isn’t causing too much discomfort. Morrissey was able to pen a characteristically witty apology to fans on True to You, a website run by Moz fans. The whole thing is worth a read, but highlights include this line:
“I apologize to an almost annoying degree for any trouble I’ve caused to anyone by way of travel plans and dog-sitters and ticket-outlay and re-molded hairstyles.”
And this one:
“I am even prepared to humble myself to nothing before those who carp; you see, any hospital-stay leaves us in danger of becoming unnecessarily agreeable.”
These new postponements are just the latest for Morrissey’s current ill-fated tour, which has been plagued with cancellations and delays. Last fall, he canceled a string of dates after his mother became sick. Then he ended up in the hospital with a bladder infection, which postponed a few concerts. And just last week, two more shows were knocked off the itinerary because of Morrissey’s ailments, which also include a concussion and Barrett’s esophagus.
