Morrissey announces rescheduled and new dates

Morrissey has rescheduled the two dates he was forced to cancel due to illness last week (beginning May 11) and announced details of four further UK live dates.

The former Smiths frontman had to cancel shows in London and Birmingham after being struck down by a throat illness, but the dates have now been put back on as part of a UK tour in October.

Morrissey will play at the Birmingham Symphony Hall on October 23 and at the London Royal Albert Hall on October 27. Original tickets for the previously-cancelled shows (dates May 11 and 13 respectively) will remain valid, while returns will be resold. The star will play further dates in Swindon, Bournemouth, Leeds and Sheffield as part of the October tour.

Morrissey will play:

  • Birmingham Symphony Hall (October 23)
  • Swindon Oasis (24)
  • Bournemouth Opera House (26)
  • London Royal Albert Hall (27)
  • Leeds 02 Academy (29)
  • Sheffield City Hall (30)
