Heaven knows I'm miserable now: Morrissey postpones gig after suffering double pneumonia
Morrissey has postponed another date on his US tour due to pneumonia in both his lungs.
The former frontman of The Smiths was due to play at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco, but had to postpone after coming down with double pneumonia.
The singer has suffered a number of medical problems in recent months, including a bleeding ulcer, anaemia and throat condition Barrett’s oesophagus.
He has now cancelled or postponed 21 gigs so far this year due to ill health.
A statement on his fan site True to You said: “Morrissey is presently being treated in San Francisco for double pneumonia, but remains on course to headline the Vive Latina festival in Mexico City on March 14.”
His gig at the Regency Ballroom has been rescheduled for 1 May and according to Morrissey’s official Facebook page all previously purchased tickets will be accepted for the new date.
Morrissey has also apologised to US fans for the “extreme and silly” venue security at Portland’s Arlene Schnitzer Theatre during his tour.
He said: “Place an obese McDonald’s fry-girl into a venue security uniform and she is suddenly Eva Braun.”
