Morrissey was reportedly interrogated by US immigration officials in Atlanta when entering the country to begin his world tour, which kicks off tomorrow (March 6) in Myrtle Beach.

The singer, who cancelled the first dates of his world tour last week due to illness, today said that he had to overcome one more hurdle to kick off the jaunt.

In a blog posting on his MySpace page, Morrissey wrote: "I have survived the interrogation of Atlanta's immigration officials and Myrtle Beach shall have me tomorrow nite (Friday), and the world from then onwards ... if the world can take it.

"One of the many penalties of being human is that tours often take a military push to start, well, all of our answers will be in our songs tomorrow night. The bloodbath starts at 7.30. Life is testing you out. Be ready for anything."

The tour, in support of Morrissey's new album 'Years Of Refusal', will hit states across the US and includes a stop at California's Coachella Festival on April 17 before continuing in Ireland on April 28.
