Morrissey's road to recovery is taking longer than expected.
As we reported a few weeks ago, Moz was hospitalized for a bleeding ulcer; he later clarified that he suffered from a concussion and Barrett’s esophagus as well. Although he was "determined" to return to the stage tonight in Las Vegas, a statement from Morrissey's representatives says the singer has been ordered two more weeks of rest:
"As the doctor has ordered MORRISSEY to rest for two additional weeks, the upcoming Texas engagements in El Paso (2/12), Austin (2/13), Pharr (2/15), Beaumont (2/16), and Dallas (2/18) will need to be rescheduled. MORRISSEY is currently undergoing treatment for a bleeding ulcer and Barrett’s esophagus. These shows are in the process of being rescheduled immediately and all patrons are encouraged to hold on to their tickets as the new dates will be announced shortly. MORRISSEY thanks everyone concerned for their well wishes and looks forward to getting back on the road. The tour will resume as scheduled in Denver at Temple Hoyne Buell Theatre on Feb 21."
