Morrissey "still ill in hospital" claims Cliff Richard

Cliff Richard reportedly told his audience that Morrissey is ill and in hospital during a free headline show in New York on Saturday night (June 21).

Sir Cliff played at The Gramercy Theatre after his Morrissey support show was cancelled. Ticket holders for the original show at Brooklyn's Barclays Centre were let in as a priority at what was the singer's first US date since 1981.

As well as performing his hit singles "Summer Holiday" and "Devil Woman", Rock NYC reports that part of the live show was dedicated to an interview with Richard, where he discussed, among other things, Elvis Presley and his thoughts on EDM Music. The review states that during the 40 minutes of questions and answers, "Cliff mentioned that Morrissey is still in hospital and wished him well, and would be happy to support him if he tours again. "

Morrissey cancelled his entire US tour in order to give him time to recover from his bout of ill health.
