Morrissey cancels US concert because of 'health concerns'

The venue hosting his next show has regretfully informed fans that the gig is cancelled, as Morrissey takes time to recover, although tickets to the remaining two gigs on the tour now remain on sale.

He was due to play San Antonio's Tobin Centre on Wednesday night but "health concerns" have forced him to pull out so he can "fully recuperate".

According to the Arizona Daily Star, the indie legend was just six songs in when he abruptly walked off the stage.

Fans were left hanging on Monday when the singer stopped singing Everyday Is Like Sunday and left the stage. You heard it. He's been trying, trying really hard.

Ultimately deciding he couldn't carry on after all, Morrissey cut the show short after roughly 30 minutes, with keyboardist Gustavo Manzur - whose own health issues prompted the cancellation of a string of recent dates - telling the audience, "His voice is shot". A member of his band later came back to explain Morrissey would not be returning because "his voice [was] shot". He came out, he tried. Promising that efforts are already underway to try and reschedule the show, he added, "We appreciate your patience while we are negotiating with Morrissey's management team". "We're sorry. He's sorry". "Heaven knows you're miserable now", wrote a fan, while another suggested that Morrisey must really hate San Antonio to have dropped the plans of performing there three times over such a short period of time.

The tour is expected to resume in Houston, Texas, from tomorrow night (14.04.2017).

All three Texas shows were already rescheduled from December past year - with the singer then blaming his management.
