Morrissey has issued an apology for having to postpone three new shows on his US tour. As previously reported, the former Smiths frontman is being treated for a bleeding ulcer and Barrett's esophagus and has had to cancel or postpone several shows. The latest shows are his Denver, Salt Lake City and San Francisco shows, which have been cancelled as a precaution so he can have more blood work done.
Morrissey issued the apology on fan site True to You, beginning the post with "I am terribly sorry that the next three shows have been moved back." He goes on to explain that the bloodwork is a necessary precaution "lest I keel over and die before your very eyes. I apologize to an almost annoying degree for any trouble I've caused to anyone by way of travel plans and dog-sitters and ticket-outlay and re-molded hairstyles. I should be as fit as a ferret for San Diego. Please don't be too appalled if you see me out and about this week in the Hollywood area."
He added, "My ulcer is now under reins, even if neither asleep nor dead, but the continued cause for concern is a slightly embarrassing absence of blood – most of which the bleeding ulcer relieved me of. Anemia sets its own terms with quite obvious biological conclusions, and I have spent these last weeks under expert medical care in Los Angeles with an almost erotic dependency on various IV drips."
