Morrissey cancels the rest of his UK tour

More London O2 Academy Brixton shows are pulled

Morrissey has cancelled the remaining tour dates of his current UK tour because of illness.

The former Smiths singer’s two shows at the London O2 Academy Brixton, which had been set to take place tonight (May 29) and tomorrow (30) have been pulled, it was announced today.

The news follows other cancellations across the UK, as Morrissey follows doctor’s orders to recover from a throat illness.

A statement on behalf of the singer explained: “Morrissey is on continued doctor’s orders not to sing.”

In the statement fans were advised to hold on to tickets, and await details of possible rescheduled gigs.

Morrissey did manage to play a show in Manchester last week (May 24) on the day of his 50th birthday.
