I hope he will be OK and do whatever he has to do as far as keeping tour dates or canceling as necessary. Our health is much more important than anything else in the world. Jonathan Ross (@Wossy) is in touch with Moz's people and is reporting updates on Twitter. Get Well, Moz.

Jonathan Ross (@Wossy) is reporting on Twitter as he gets updates from Mozzy's people. I hope he does whatever it takes to get well if it means cancelling shows or even the rest of the tour. His health is more important than some tour dates IMO.

Moz certainly has been ill rather frequently this past year; I hope that this series of flu attacks is not indicative of a deeper problem.

A lot of people in certain of these forums like to castigate Bono for being in less than fantastic shape, but when one considers the problems affecting other singers around 50 years of age - Moz and Dave Gahan come to mind - Bono is remarkably durable.

I saw this today. I hope he gets well soon.

Considering the energy and passion that he puts into his shows, I'm surprised he would go out there if he was sick. Hopefully he wasn't pressured to due to his history of cancelling dates.

Morrissey Back on His Feet and Cracking Jokes After Fainting Spell

Today 6:17 AM PDT by Josh Grossberg
Morrissey Mike Guastella/WireImage.com

People, it was really nothing.

After breathing problems forced Morrissey to cancel two shows, the former Smiths frontman resumed his U.K. tour Tuesday night at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

Morrissey, 50, fell to his knees Saturday after finishing the first song of his set in the city of Swindon and had to be carried offstage by two of his band members.

The Maladjusted crooner was hospitalized overnight for observation. On the advice of his doctors, he scrapped a gig Monday in Bournemouth so he could get some rest.

But back on his feet last night, Morrissey made light of his ailment, pretending to faint at one point before jumping back up and shouting, "Thank you, Swindon!" per the BBC.

"The doctor said I shouldn't smile. I told him, 'I don't,'" cracked the usually somber hitmaker.



At the Russell Brand gig in LA last night he made reference to his good friend and hero Mossy (who he also named his beloved cat after) that he'd emailed the chap after his unfortunate fall stating if he is going to do something like that again to certainly not do so in a place like Swindon (which he compared to the OC) but someplace much more posh and dignified.

Yea I heard about that too. It was cool being at a Russell Brand gig and hearing all the Smiths and Morrissey music he blasts before and after his shows. Well done!
