Morrissey running Jacko a close second in the canceling high-profile dates stakes, as he pulls more shows:
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."
Well, he is fifty. You have to be careful at his age.
BBC News points out that he has managed to complete some dates:
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.
Blimey, he really isn't himself, is he?
