Morrissey Pulls London Gig

Subscribe to Morrissey alerts

Ailing rocker Morrissey has pulled yet another concert on his U.K. tour as he battles a throat illness.
The former The Smiths frontman's live dates have been blighted by a mystery sickness, with the star scrapping gigs across the U.S. and the U.K. in recent months.
He fell ill again last week (begs18May09) but defied doctors' orders to celebrate his 50th birthday onstage in his native Manchester, England on Friday (22May09).
And he's now suffering for his actions - just days after his birthday bash, he pulled a concert in Salisbury, England on Monday (25May09) and now he's cancelled his London show, which was due to take place on Tuesday (26May09).
Announcing the cancellation of Monday's gig, a spokeswoman for the star said, "Morrissey is on doctor's orders to postpone the show, to ensure a complete recuperation.
"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."
