DETROIT (AP) -- A spokeswoman for Morrissey says the former Smiths frontman and solo artist postponed several shows, including one in Lawrence, after being diagnosed with a bleeding ulcer.
Lauren Papapietro said in an email Morrissey had been treated at a suburban Detroit hospital. He missed a show last Thursday in Flint, Friday in Minneapolis and Saturday in Chicago.
Shows also are being rescheduled for Nashville, Tenn.; Atlanta; Asheville, N.C.; Lawrence; Clear Lake, Iowa; and Lincoln, Neb. Ticketholders are being asked to keep their tickets because those dates will be rescheduled.
The tour is scheduled to resume Feb. 9 in Las Vegas.
Papapietro says Morrissey is expected to fully recover and "thanks everyone concerned for their support during this time."
