Morrissey Scraps U.k. Tour
Veteran rocker Morrissey has scrapped the rest of his U.K. concerts as ill health continues to blight his world tour.
The former Smiths frontman has been struggling with a throat condition for months, postponing the start of his gigs in the U.S. and cancelling a string of dates in the U.K throughout May (09).
And now he has been ordered by a doctor to axe his final two concerts in Britain, scheduled for Friday and Saturday (29&30May09) in London.
The news comes as a further blow to his British fans, who have now seen the star postpone seven shows in the U.K this year (09).
Morrissey's gigs in France on 1 and 2 June (09) will also not go ahead.
It is hoped the singer will recover to continue his European tour with a show in Luxembourg on 5 June (09).
Organisers have promised the scrapped dates will be rescheduled and have urged fans to hold on to their tickets.
