Morrissey: 'Reports Of My Death Have Been Greatly Understated'
Morrissey has spoken out following his recent health troubles, which saw him hospitalised at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan. The singer issued a statement to fan site True To You, which he opened up by saying: "The reports of my death have been greatly understated." The former frontman of The Smiths went on to explain that he was treated for concussion, a bleeding ulcer and Barrett's esophagus, and as such had to cancel a number of shows. NME reports. The cancelled gigs were already part of numerous dates rescheduled from October last year, when Morrissey stopped the shows mid-tour to return to the UK to be with his ill mother. She has since recovered. He added that he is keen to pick up his North American tour next week in Las Vegas. He wrote: "I am fully determined to resume the tour on February 9 at the Chelsea Ballroom in Las Vegas. If there's an audience of any kind in attendance, I just might die with a smile on my face, after all. If I am not there, I shall probably never again be anywhere." He added a thank you to crowds at two recent shows in the US and Australia, which he dubbed the best nights of his career, stating: "Thank you to everyone present at both Brooklyn (New York) and Melbourne (Australia) during recent weeks for two of the best nights of what might charitably be termed my "career". My debt to you will outlive time itself."
