Less than two months after aborting yet another U.S. tour due to ill health, Morrissey is making plans to hit the road again in support of his brand-new album World Peace Is None of Your Business, with concerts so far planned for Greece, Turkey, Italy, Romania, Hungary and Ireland, according to his quasi-official fansite True To You.
In an item posted Saturday, the site reports: “Morrissey is finalising plans for concerts in Athens (Greece), Istanbul (Turkey) and Rome (Italy), and he is hoping to include Bucharest (Romania) and Budapest (Hungary). A concert at Dublin’s 02 has been finalised.”
No actual dates have yet been announced.
On June 10, an ailing Morrissey canceled the remainder of his U.S. tour with “unimaginable sorrow,” the proceeded to blame his longtime opening act for getting him sick.
This U.S. tour cancellation marked the third time since late 2012 the former Smiths frontman has pulled the plug on a U.S. tour, and follows his failed attempt last summer to tour South America last year, too. Those cancellations were all due to health ailments or his need to be with his sick mother.
