Quick News

After further setback in health, Morrissey has been forced to cancel the remaining dates of his current North American tour. The former Smiths singer was hit with bleeding ulcer, Barrett's esophagus and double pneumonia since January and has been recovering and playing gigs here and there, now, doctors are ordering him to rest. Moz released an official statement: "It takes a lifetime to find the right words, and at the moment, I haven't got them. I've been a colossal pain where this continuously unpredictable illness is concerned, and now the physical limits have been reached. The tour had, in fact, been fantastic for all of us - a new slice of life full of concentrated power. The audiences everywhere have given so much, although I know that neither of us will ever receive our due. I hope this isn't the end, and I hope there will be other chances, minus the heavy burden of illness. Knots of grief today, but full of resolve for tomorrow." Morrissey, Mexico, 16 March. We wish Moz a speedy recovery.
