'Health concerns': Morrissey has cancelled a concert in Texas: PA

Morrissey has been forced to pull out of a concert in Texas amid ‘health concerns’.

The former Smiths frontman pulled out of his scheduled gig in San Antonio on Wednesday, just two days after he cut short a set in Arizona.

“Following health concerns stemming from Morrissey's appearance in Tucson, it is with great sadness that tonight's sold out engagement in San Antonio at the Tobin Center is cancelled to allow him to fully recuperate,” read a statement on his official website.

The Everyday is Like Sunday singer, 57, left fans disappointed when he performed just six songs on stage on Monday.

The British star told the audience that he was unable to perform due to vocal issues and decided to leave the stage.

“It seems I have left half my mouth in Guadalajara,” he reportedly told the crowd.

An email from promoters read: “Obviously this was out of our control and we are doing what we can to determine whether we will be able to reschedule Morrissey's concert in the not-too-distant future.

“We appreciate your patience while we are negotiating with Morrissey's management team.”

As he walked off stage, Morrissey’s keyboardist Gustavo Manzur said: “His voice is shot. You heard it, you heard it.

“He's been trying, trying really hard. He came out, he tried. His voice is really shot. We're sorry. He's sort. You know he tried.”

Morrissey is still scheduled to perform in Houston, Texas on Friday night.
