Morrissey has had to pull out of a second gig due to illness but insists his US tour will resume this weekend

Morrissey has had to pull out of a second gig due to illness.

The former Smiths star, who is midway through his US tour, cancelled a date earlier this week and has now been forced to postpone another gig at Atlantic City's Revel Casino Hotel tonight (06.06.14).

The legendary singer, who will release his new album 'World Peace Is None Of Your Business' this month, is adamant he will be back on stage tomorrow (07.06.14).

Morrissey took to Facebook to post: "The tour will resume as originally scheduled, without question, at the Boston Opera House on Saturday, June 7."

Meanwhile, the singer's opening act Kristen Young has rubbished rumours she had caught the same bug which is why she has been removed from the remaining dates.

She took to Twitter to write: "@CriminalRecords @RivalEnt@solidcolt I do not have a virus. I had an allergy attack yesterday....and I am now great. But, thanks. (sic)"

Writing on Facebook earlier this week, the star, who has been Morrissey's opening act for a number of years, confirmed she would no longer be joining the 'Instanbul' singer on tour, although she didn't explain why the decision had been made to quit the gigs.

She wrote: "We won't be continuing as opening band for the Morrissey tour. Thanks to all who showed up early and gave us such life-sustaining enthusiasm. Thanks to Morrissey for his years of support and generosity. There are lots of plans and lots of possibilities and we can't wait to tear into them."


The former Smiths frontman and purveyor of bittersweet indie pop continues to enjoy his solo renaissance.
