Morrissey abandons gig after three songs

London show ends in chaos as singer appears to be struck down with illness

Morrissey was forced to abandon his show at the London Roundhouse tonight (January 25) after just three songs.

The former Smith began the show, but left the stage early after it appeared he lost his voice.

Following a 15-minute delay it was announced that the show would not continue.

Comedians Russel Brand, David Walliams and TV presenterJonathan Ross took to the stage to try and placate the audience, however some members of the crowd threw items at the trio when they learnt the gig was off.

Morrissey is scheduled to play two additional shows at the Roundhouse tomorrow (January 26) and Sunday, but it is not yet known whether they will go ahead as planned.
