Morrissey @ Webster Hall (more by Tim Griffin)

Singer Morrissey was discharged from hospital today after collapsing on stage on Saturday evening with apparent breathing difficulties.

The former Smiths frontman, 50, fell to the ground while performing his opening song, This Charming Man, at the Oasis Leisure Centre in Swindon, Wiltshire.

Two band members carried him off stage and he was taken to Great Western Hospital at about 9pm. A spokeswoman for the hospital said: "Morrissey became unwell, and he was admitted overnight as a precautionary measure. He's been seen by the medical team, much improved and now discharged home."

The singer had opened his show with the words "Good evening ... probably", before launching into the song. He appeared to be in discomfort and "straining" to perform the song, and, as it finished, sank to his knees, according to witnesses at the gig. [Guardian]

Time to exit gracefully if possible.

oops. I knew he had west coast dates before the end of this year, and so I searched my email and found those very similar dates in an email called "MORRISSEY Honors CAFÉ TACVBA"... except they were Cafe Tacuba dates. Fixed, thanks!

To all you haters: I hope someone kicks you when you are down. Moz is one of the greatest, most influential singers in the world and he deserves respect. Get well soon Moz.

IT is good that he is OK now. I've heard of cases like this even in the case of Asian performers.

i think he's too tired of that time that's why he collapsed during his concert. Good to hear he's ok now.

Morrissey i think had a very hectic schedule that's why he didn't get enough rest. so when during the show he's body gave up. stuffed toys
