'Sick' Morrissey scraps world tour opening

By Super Admin

London, Mar 1 (ANI): Morrissey has cancelled the first dates of his world tour due to illness, it has emerged.

The former Smiths frontman was set to kick off the jaunt on Saturday in Boca Raton, Florida, but he scrapped the gig, along with four other shows in the state, in Orlando, Jacksonville and St. Petersburg, after reportedly falling ill.

No details on Morrissey's condition were available, reports The Daily Express.

The tour is now set to begin on March 6 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and run through July 1 with a performance in Russia.

After a short stint in the punk rock band The Nosebleeds in the late 1970s, Morrissey rose to prominence in the 1980s as the lyricist and vocalist of the alternative rock band The Smiths.

After the band's break-up in 1987, Morrissey began a solo career, in which he continued the jangle pop sound of The Smiths. (ANI)
