Morrissey in stable condition after onstage collapse

Posted on

British mope-pop star Morrissey (neé Stephen Patrick Morrissey) collapsed on stage in Swindon, England, tonight, according to the UK’s Guardian. Witnesses said that just after finishing his opening song, Morrissey fell to the floor and was helped offstage by band members. A spokesman for the Great Western hospital told the Guardian that “Morrissey is being reviewed by the medical staff and his condition is stable.” The singer has cancelled a string of concerts this year due to an “unspecified illness.”

UPDATE: BBC News reports Sunday that Morrissey had breathing difficulties onstage, and has been discharged after a “precautionary” overnight stay at a Swindon hospital.
