Morrissey: In with a bang, out with a whimper. The Boy With The Thorn In His Side has had to cancel the remaining dates on his North American tour, thanks to persistent health problems. According to his publicist, Mozzer is suffering from “double pneumonia, a bleeding ulcer and a gastrointestinal problem called Barrett’s esophagus.”
What is Barrett’s esophagus? It’s an abnormal change in the cells of the lower esophagus that can cause heartburn, trouble swallowing, vomiting, pain and weight loss. Ouch. Concert-goers can get show refunds at individual venues.
In all seriousness, we hope Moz feels better soon! [Reuters]
