    Last year, Morrissey’s North American tour was derailed due to an array of health issues, most notably a bleeding ulcer and Barrett’s esophagus and double pneumonia. While he seemed to be as fit as a fiddle during his latest jaunt, tearing through a number of shows, he’s once again been forced to cancel a performance due to illness.

    As Atlanta Access reports,  Morrissey’s cancelled Wednesday’s appearance at Atlanta’s Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center after coming down with an unspecified virus. Not only was Morrissey struck ill, but members of his backing band and road crew as well as the tour’s supporting act, singer Kristeen Young, have all been afflicted. Better stay away from that tasty penne pasta and tomato, folks.

    This marks the fourth time since late 2012 that Morrissey has canceled a show in Atlanta. Better luck next time, Hotlanta.


    Check out Morrissey’s remaining tour schedule below. The outing comes in support of his latest solo album, World Peace Is None of Your Business, due out July 15th through Harvest Records.
