Morrissey out of hospital after collapsing on stage in Swindon (video) ++ tour dates

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]
