British rocker Morrissey has cancelled the opening dates of his world tour due to illness.
The former Smiths frontman was due to begin a string of live shows across the globe with a concert in Boca Raton, Florida on Saturday (28Feb09) night.
But the singer has scrapped the gig, along with four other shows in the state, in Orlando, Jacksonville and St. Petersburg, after reportedly falling ill.
No details on Morrissey's condition were available as WENN went to press.
The tour is now due to kick off in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on 6 March (09), ending with a show in Russia on 1 July (09).
