Morrissey diagnosed with bleeding ulcer, postpones Saturday's show in Lawrence

Get well soon, Morrissey.

Doctors have diagnosed the British singer, who was hospitalized last week in Michigan, with a bleeding ulcer. While he's expected to recover soon, Morrissey in the meantime has cancelled six upcoming tour dates, including the show planned Saturday at Liberty Hall in Lawrence.

"Morrissey is expected to make a full recovery and thanks everyone concerned for their support during this time," according to an announcement on Liberty Hall's website.

Billboard wrote this weekend: "The former Smiths frontman — whose last album, "Years of Refusal," was released in 2009 — kicked off a U.S. trek last October in Boston. When asked by Billboard why he had decided to tour without a new album to support, he replied, 'Because a lot of people like me.'"

That's certainly the case in Lawrence, where we know a lot of people were looking forward to this show.

Hold onto those tickets, though. Liberty Hall says they're still working through details with Morrissey and his management but that they plan to reschedule. All tickets for the original date will be honored at the rescheduled date.

We'll let you know once we get any info on a rain check, hopefully in the next few days. Morrissey plans to resume his tour Feb. 9 in Las Vegas. Nationwide shows are planned through early March.
