Morrissey cancels tonight's concert in London

Morrissey has cancelled another set of dates because of illness, just days after returning to the stage to mark his 50th birthday.

Monday's concert in Salisbury and Tuesday's gig in Mile End, east London, have been called off.

The singer has cancelled a number of dates since his world tour kicked off in February.

A spokeswoman apologised for the cancellations but said Morrissey had been warned by doctors not to sing.

"Morrissey is on doctor's orders to postpone the show, to ensure a complete recuperation," she said.

"Event organisers would like to apologise to fans for the disappointment and are working to reschedule this show, so advise ticket holders to hang on to their tickets."

It is not yet known whether three concerts scheduled for London's Brixton Academy over the weekend will go ahead.

Morrissey has already been forced to reschedule dates for Birmingham's Symphony Hall and London's Royal Albert Hall for October.

During his 50th birthday gig in his home town of Manchester, he appeared in good spirits, chatting to the audience and singing Smiths hits as well as his solo material.
