Ulcer-hit Morrissey postpones shows

Morrissey has postponed a series of US concerts due to a bleeding ulcer

Former Smiths frontman Morrissey has postponed a series of concerts due to a bleeding ulcer.

The 53-year-old singer was forced to cancel six shows on his US tour as he required hospital treatment.

His spokeswoman Lauren Papapietro said: "Morrissey is expected to make a full recovery and thanks everyone concerned for their support during this time.

"Morrissey apologises greatly for any and all inconvenience and looks forward to continuing his US tour."

He has postponed concerts in Asheville, North Carolina; Nashville, Tennessee; Atlanta, Georgia; Lawrence, Kansas; Clear Lake, Iowa; and Lincoln, Nebraska.

This followed the cancellation of three shows last week due to an unspecified illness in the band.

He is expected to return to the stage in Las Vegas on February 9.
