Morrissey has recovered from a bleeding ulcer and has announced he'll resume his North American tour on Wednesday (Feb. 27) in San Diego, following a stop at "Jimmy Kimmel Live" the night before.
The move amounts to a rescheduling of 25 previously arranged dates, plus an additional three cities (Richmond, Va., Philadelphia and Flint, MI) as well as a special show on March 2 at Hollywood High School's auditorium. The tour includes a sold-out show at the Staples Center in L.A. with a special performance planned by Patti Smith.
As previously reported, Morrissey was forced to put his tour on hold in January after being diagnosed with a bleeding ulcer and Barrett's esophagus. He had expected to resume the trek on Feb. 12, but those plans had to be changed. "Heaven knows I’m miserable now," he said in a statement at the time.
