Morrissey Postpones More Tour Dates, Announces <i>Kill Uncle</i> Reissue

This has been a tough year for Moz so far.

The 53-year old former Smiths frontman was hospitalized late last month while on tour and subsequently diagnosed with bleeding ulcers and Barrett’s esophagus.

Although he initially only postponed six shows across the U.S., it has now been announced that Morrissey will postpone two more shows this weekend in Las Vegas and Phoenix. According to a press release “[these] shows are in the process of being rescheduled immediately and all patrons are encouraged to hold on to their tickets as the new dates will be announced within the coming days. Morrissey thanks everyone concerned for their well wishes during this time and hopes for a speedy recovery.” The tour will resume as planned in El Paso, Texas on Feb. 12, though the March 2 show in Sparks, Nevada, has been cancelled.

On a more positive note, however, there was also an announcement of the reissue of Morrissey’s 1991 album Kill Uncle on April 8. According to Clash, this reissue will include a special edition 7-inch single picture disc featuring “The Last of the Famous International Playboys” from the 1989 compilation album Bona Drag, as well as a reordered track list that includes two new cuts and a cover of the Herman and the Hermits song “East West.”
