Renowned singer Morrissey is currently undergoing treatment for "physical exhaustion" following the abrupt cancellation of two scheduled concerts in the United States. An official statement, posted on his Instagram account, revealed that the 64-year-old artist has been prescribed a mandatory two-week period of rest.

Morrissey is currently under close medical supervision in Zurich, Switzerland, where he will recuperate. This unexpected turn of events disrupted Morrissey's plans to commemorate the 20th anniversary of his iconic album, "You are the Quarry," with performances in California on January 26 and 27.

The album holds a special place in the hearts of his fans, featuring some of his most beloved tracks like "First of the Gang to Die" and "Irish Blood, English Heart." Regrettably, the venues in Anaheim and Inglewood had no choice but to cancel these highly anticipated concerts, citing "unforeseen circumstances."

February Tour Postponed

In addition to these immediate cancellations, the artist's website has announced the postponement of his February tour dates.

Originally, Morrissey was set to take his music to fans in Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Chile, Argentina, and Brazil next month. This news was met with disappointment from fans and the band She Wants Revenge, who were slated to support Morrissey during the California shows.

In a statement, they expressed their genuine sadness and shared their frustrations at the situation. They also acknowledged that, while they had hoped for a different outcome, they were not entirely surprised given Morrissey's history of health-related concert cancellations.

It's worth noting that Morrissey has faced concert cancellations in the past due to health issues, and his well-being remains a topic of concern for fans and the music industry alike. As he embarks on this necessary period of recovery, his dedicated followers are left hoping for his swift return to the stage, while simultaneously understanding the importance of his health and well-being. We will continue to monitor his progress and provide updates as they become available.
