Morrissey hospitalised with “double pneumonia”

Artist News


Morrissey has been forced to cancel more shows after being hospitalised again, this time with “double pneumonia” – that’s pneumonia in both lungs. This follows a bout of hospital treatment for the singer earlier this year for a bleeding ulcer, concussion and a throat condition.

However, a statement on the True To You website says that the singer is expected to be well enough to perform his headline slot at the Vive Latino festival in Mexico this Thursday. A show due to take place at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco last Saturday will now take place on 1 May.
