Morrissey recently canceled the remainder of his U.S. tour, allegedly after contracting a “horrendous cold” from tour opener Kristeen Young, a charge which Young has since denied. Whoever is to blame, one thing is for sure: Morrissey was ill enough to cancel his 5th tour in as many years. And now, singer Cliff Richard, who was set to open for Moz in NYC, only adds to our concern, revealing that the singer remains in the hospital as of last weekend.
As Stereogum points out, Richard made the revelation during a concert at Gramecy Theater on Saturday, a last-minute showed that was announced in place of the scrapped Morrissey date. Richard also added that he’d be happy to support Moz whenever he decides to tour again.
