Morrissey collapses on stage


British rocker and former Smith's frontman Morrissey collapsed onstage Saturday night during a show in Swindon, England . After performing his first song of the night, "This Charming Man," Moz collapsed and had to be carried off stage by his band. He was taken to a nearby hospital and treated for respiratory issues. He was released from the hospital Sunday morning.

Concertgoers were not happy to see the iconic rocker's show cut short. Morrissey is notorious for canceling his shows, and, according to reports, there was booing from the audience as the unconscious Morrissey was taken off stage.

So far only one other date on Morrissey's current tour has been canceled -- tonight's show that was scheduled to take place at Bournemouth’s Opera House.

Morrissey is scheduled to carry this tour through Europe and then hit the U.S. for a West Coast tour in November and December. Hopefully his health will hold up and ticket holders will get to see what they paid for.
