New dates for axed Morrissey shows

Four Morrissey concerts called off due to illness will go ahead later this summer, it was announced.

The 50-year-old former Smiths frontman was forced to postpone seven gigs after doctors advised him not to sing to ensure a swift recovery.

Tour organisers said four London shows at the Troxy Ballroom in Mile End and the O2 Academy in Brixton will now go ahead in July.
