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]
