Disappointment as Morrissey axes concert during second song

Thousands of Morrissey fans were left disappointed when the star axed a concert mid way through the second song.

The former Smiths frontman, who collapsed on stage three weeks ago, was hit by a bottle of beer thrown from the crowd at the Echo Arena in Liverpool.

Morrissey had opened the concert with the words: "It's Saturday, it's Liverpool, it's raining, it's perfect" before launching into the Smiths' hit This Charming Man, had shown no signs of the respiratory illness which saw him admitted to hospital recently.
