Morrissey cancels show over ‘health concerns’ after being forced to leave the stage

Morrissey has been forced to cancel his gig in San Antonio, Texas over reported “health concerns”.

The Smiths frontman turned solo star was supposed to take to the stage at the 2,000-capacity Tobin Center on April 12th but a message on the venue’s website confirmed otherwise.

“Following health concerns stemming from Morrissey’s appearance in Tucson, it is with great sadness that tonight’s sold out engagement in San Antonio at the Tobin Centre is cancelled to allow him to fully recuperate,” a statement read.

The news comes after the 57-year-old walked off stage during ‘Everyday Is Like Sunday’ with keyboard player Gustavo Manzur confirming the problem: “His voice is shot. You heard it, you heard it. He’s been trying, trying really hard. He came out, he tried. His voice is really shot. We’re sorry. He’s sorry. You know he tried.”

“It seems I have left half my mouth in Guadalajara,” Morrissey told the crowd. “But I will stand here and I will sing, and, if necessary, I will drop dead.”

Morrissey lasted just six songs in Arizona:
