Illness forces Morrissey to reschedule U.S. shows

By

DETROIT -- A spokeswoman for Morrissey says the former Smiths frontman and solo artist postponed several shows after being diagnosed with a bleeding ulcer.

Lauren Papapietro tells The Associated Press in an email that Morrissey had been treated at a suburban Detroit hospital. He missed a show last Thursday in Flint, Friday in Minneapolis and Saturday in Chicago.

Shows also are being rescheduled for Nashville, Tenn.; Atlanta; Asheville, N.C.; Lawrence, Kan.; Clear Lake, Iowa; and Lincoln, Neb. Ticketholders are being asked to keep their tickets because those dates will be rescheduled.

The tour is scheduled to resume Feb. 9 in Las Vegas.

Papapietro says Morrissey is expected to fully recover and "thanks everyone concerned for their support during this time."
