Morrissey hospitalized; U.S. tour in jeopardy



Former Smiths frontman Morrissey is famous for "falling ill" during tours and canceling dates. But I think he has a good excuse this time: Reuters reports that Morrissey has been hospitalized near Detroit with a suspected bladder infection.

Morrissey checked into Beaumont Hospital on Friday in the suburb of Royal Oak, Mich., said his spokeswoman Lauren Papapietro.

Morrisseey had already canceled several dates due to another ilness with his band. Gigs in Flint, Minneapolis and Chicago have been canceled. The status of coming shows in Nashville, Atlanta and Las Vegas remain uncertain. Click here for a full list of upcoming dates. But if I were a ticketholder, I'd tell the babysitter you might not her services afterall.
