Morrissey 'fine' for stage return

Morrissey has had to cancel several gigs this year due to ill health

Singer Morrissey will make a return to the stage tonight following his collapse during a gig in Swindon at the weekend.

The former Smiths star was taken to hospital suffering from breathing difficulties but was later discharged.

He was also forced to postpone a show in Bournemouth on Monday but his spokeswoman said he was now "rested and absolutely fine for tonight".

The concert will take place at London's Royal Albert Hall.

US dates

A spokesman for the venue told fans: "He definitely wants to continue tonight."

Morrissey, 50, fell to the floor while performing his former band's song This Charming Man at Swindon's Oasis Leisure Centre on Saturday.

The concert in London is a re-scheduled gig that he had to cancel in May due to illness.

Morrissey's tour is due to move onto its European leg next month, including gigs in the Netherlands, France, Belgium, Germany and Ireland.
