Morrissey hospitalised with “double pneumonia”

Morrissey has been hospitalized in San Francisco with “double pneumonia,” forcing him to postpone a show scheduled in that city. It is the latest setback to his north American tour. Double pneumonia joins a series of ailments that have forced the singer to bump 19 shows since January. Performances have been canceled when the singer contracted a bleeding ulcer, Barrett’s oesophagus and also a moral objection to appearing on a talk show that also featured the cast of hunting show “Duck Dynasty”.

Morrissey has been hospitalized in San Francisco with “double pneumonia,” forcing him to postpone a show scheduled in that city.

It is the latest setback to his north American tour.

Double pneumonia joins a series of ailments that have forced the singer to bump 19 shows since January. Performances have been canceled when the singer contracted a bleeding ulcer, Barrett’s oesophagus and also a moral objection to appearing on a talk show that also featured the cast of hunting show “Duck Dynasty”.

The north American tour itself was largely rescheduled from a tour originally scheduled for last fall. That tour was rescheduled when Morrissey’s mother took ill.

Morrissey still plans to headline the Vive Latine Festival in Mexico on March 14.

In a statement from January, the singer said, “I am fully determined to resume the tour on February 9 at the Chelsea Ballroom in Las Vegas. If there’s an audience of any kind in attendance, I just might die with a smile on my face, after all. If I am not there, I shall probably never again be anywhere. Equally, I am determined to play Flint (Michigan) if it kills me (which, on the face of it, it almost has.)”
