Morrissey Interrogated By Immigration
British rocker MORRISSEY suffered more bad luck before the start of his world tour on Friday (06Mar09) - he was questioned by U.S. immigration officials in Atlanta upon his arrival in the country.
The former Smiths frontman was due to begin a string of live shows across the globe with a concert in Boca Raton, Florida on Saturday (28Feb09) night but was forced to cancel the gig after falling ill.
He also had to scrap three other Florida shows, in Orlando, Jacksonville, and St. Petersburg, as a result of the mystery illness.
And Morrissey had another hurdle to overcome prior to the rearranged start of his world tour in Myrtle Beach on Friday - he was interrogated by U.S. security chiefs.
He writes on his MySpace blog, "I have survived the interrogation of Atlanta's Immigration officials and Myrtle Beach shall have me tomorrow nite (Friday), and the world from then onwards... if the world can take it.
"One of the many penalties of being human is that tours often take a military push to start, well, all of our answers will be in our songs tomorrow night. The bloodbath starts at 7.30. Life is testing you out. Be ready for anything."
