Morrissey has been hospitalised in San Francisco after developing pneumonia on both his lungs.

A statement from Morrissey's representative, published on ContactMusic reads: "Morrissey is presently being treated in San Francisco for 'double pneumonia', but remains on course to headline the Vive Latino festival in Mexico City on March 14."

On Saturday, the former The Smiths star's official Facebook page read: "Due to Morrissey's medical condition, tonight's engagement at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco will need to be rescheduled and will now take place on May 1. All tickets previously purchased for the Regency Ballroom show will be honored on the new date."

The British singer first cancelled concerts in February, citing a bleeding ulcer and Barrett's esophagus as the reason for his cancellation. "Morrissey thanks everyone concerned for their well wishes during this time and hopes for a speedy recovery," a rep for Morrissey said at this point.

While he intended to resume his tour in El Paso on 12 February, that show was cancelled and he announced that the tour would return on 21 February in Denver. That show was cancelled as well.

Other cancelled dates include Morrissey's 22 February show in Salt Lake City and 24 February show in San Francisco.

At the beginning of March the outspoken 53-year-old added another icon to his list of enemies: David Bowie.

Bowie famously refused to be included in the art for a repress of Morrissey's 1989 single, 'The Last of the Famous International Playboys'. Morrissey wanted to use a previously unseen photo of Bowie on the 8 April re-issue of the 'Bona Drag' track, but news broke last month of Bowie's disapproval of that idea.

Morrissey has now elected to use a photo of 'Never Gonna Give You Up' singer Rick Astley instead, effectively 'Rickrolling' Bowie.

Everyday is like Sunday Everyday is silent and grey Hide on the promenade Etch a postcard: "How I Dearly Wish I Was Not Here" In this seaside town That they forgot to bomb Come, come, come Nuclear Bomb! Everyday is like Sunday Everyday is silent and grey Trudging back over pebbles and sand And a strange dust lands on your hands And on your face On your face.. Everyday is like Sunday "Win Yourself A Cheap Tray" Share some grease-tea with me Everyday is silent and grey

  • The Smiths- How Soon Is Now? HQ

    DISCLAIMER: I do not own the song "How soon is now". It is owned by The Smiths and their label. If you like it, subscribe me;) "How Soon Is Now?" is a song by the British alternative rock band The Smiths. Written by Smiths singer Morrissey and guitarist Johnny Marr, it was originally a B-side of the 1984 single "William, It Was Really Nothing". "How Soon Is Now?" was subsequently featured on the compilation album Hatful of Hollow and on American, Australian and Warner UK editions of the group's second album Meat Is Murder (1985). It was belatedly released as a single in the UK in 1985, where it reached number 24 on the UK Singles Chart. Sire Records chief Seymour Stein called it "the 'Stairway to Heaven' of the Eighties", while co-writer Johnny Marr described it as "possibly our most enduring record. It's most people's favourite, I think." Despite its prominent place in The Smiths' repertoire, however, it is not generally considered to be representative of the band's style. Although a club favourite, "How Soon Is Now?" did not chart as well as writers Morrissey and Marr had expected. Most commentators put this down to the fact that the song had been out on vinyl in a number of forms before being released as a single in its own right. The original track runs for nearly seven minutes; however, the 7" single edit cut the length down to under four minutes. The complete version is generally used on compilations. The song has been widely praised for the artistry of its lyrics <b>...</b>
