[This show has been rescheduled for March 30 at Cobb Energy Centre. All tickets purchased for the January date will be honored.]
After being diagnosed with a bleeding ulcer, Morrissey has scrapped six upcoming tour dates, including Thursday at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre.
Billboard first reported the canceled dates; the tour is slated to resume Feb. 9 in Las Vegas.
Hang tight for updates from Cobb Energy regarding a rescheduled date and/or refunds.
Though no fault of Morrissey’s, the cancelation is a double sting for fans, as this date was a makeup for his December concert at Cobb Energy. At the time, the former Smith’s frontman nixed several shows in order to be with his ailing mother.
A statement from the singer’s representative said rescheduled dates will be announced in the coming days.
Morrissey, 53, was admitted to a Michigan hospital last week with a “suspected bladder infection” that has since been determined to be a bleeding ulcer. He is expected to make a full recovery.
Morrissey had already canceled his weekend appearances, though it was initially hoped the tour would resume Monday in Asheville, N.C.
I’ll give you more details as soon as they’re available.
