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.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

Take a friend's advice with a pinch of salt. Although you love this dreamer dearly, they don't have a realistic grasp of the situation. Trust your instincts instead. You've always taken great pride in your work ethic. Abandoning a project before it is finished will weigh on your conscience. Do the best you can with a severely reduced budget. The results won't be thrilling, but they will be respectable. Nobody will blame you for having to make bricks from straw.More
