Morrissey has cancelled two of his performances in the United States due to ‘band illness’. It follows an incident in November where Morrissey was forced to leave the stage after only thirty minutes of performing.

The announcement read: “Due to band illness, we are devastated to announce we cannot proceed with tonight’s show in Salt Lake City and tomorrow’s show in Denver.”

“Thank you to the fans for the ongoing love and support while we take a moment to restore and recover. All being well, M and the band will be back on stage in Minneapolis on Friday night.”
