Heaven knows hes miserable now Morrissey cancels US tour dates due to bleeding ulcer

Former Smith’s frontman Morrissey has been forced to cancel nine tour dates after he was admitted to William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan last week.

At the time, Morrissey was suspected of suffering from a bladder infection, however tests have discovered that he is suffering from a bleeding ulcer and although he is expected to make a full recovery within two weeks, he has been forced to reschedule several shows of his US Tour.

morrisseyAfter being admitted, Morrissey had already been forced to reschedule three shows staring with his Flint (Michigan) show on 24th January, and subsequent shows in the days following in Minneapolis and Chicago.

But after the diagnosis was worse than initially feared, he has also been forced to do the same for forthcoming shows in Asheville (North Carolina), Nashville (Tennessee), Atlanta (Georgia), Lawrence (Kansas), Clear Lake (Iowa) and Lincoln (Nebraska).

It is the second time that Morrissey has been forced to reschedule shows as part of a tour. Last year, when the singer’s mother fell ill, Morrissey rescheduled several shows so he could spend time with her.

The singer expects to restart his tour on February 9th with a show in Las Vegas (Nevada).

It has been a busy few months for the English singer, he toured America in the autumn of last year, then played several dates in New Zealand and Australia before returning to the United States in early January.

“Morrissey is expected to make a full recovery and thanks everyone concerned for their support,” stated his representative Lauren Papapietro. Let’s hope he gets well soon! We’ll just spend the time listing to his album anyway while browsing through the latest music, hollywood gossip and maybe visit as well.

Depeche Mode Plan Delta Machine for Release March 26

It was the 80’s. We were skating by with big hair long enough, and our rediscovery of synthesizers single-handedly gave us entire careers overnight- and destroyed them the next day (who remembers Wham! Or Flock of Seagulls?) Yet, time has been forgiving to a few artist birthed from the 80’s who created a canvas of eerie, memorable, and fascinatingly influential. Depeche Mode are one of the fortunate, as well as insanely talented groups who superceded the era they were born from and created a legacy all their own. The group are set to return to the music foray in March 2013 with ‘Delta Machine,’ a tight-knit and possibly groundbreaking selection of 13 tracks.

This is the follow-up to the group’s latest studio effort, 2009’s Sounds of the Universe.’ The album’s release will be followed by a grand European tour, as well as some Summer 2013 North American dates.

‘Delta Machine’ is expected to continue the experimental new wave nature of the group, and bring it even further into a modern realm. According to the band’s frontman Dave Gahan, “With this release we’ve completely shifted our idea of how to create an album. When we hit a wall where we realize the album is beginning to sound too normal, we’ll mess it up and really give it that organic Depeche Mode Sound. ‘Delta Machine’ is no different, and I can’t wait for all of our fans to hear it.” This guy is not playing games.Depeche-Mode-Delta-Machine

The group is leading with the single “Heaven,” an apparently atmospheric ode to their early 80’s material.
