English singer/songwriter Morrissey postponed his South America tour last week due to food poisoning. Morrissey was scheduled to perform in Lima, Peru July 9 and 10, but had to cancel those appearances due to “severe food poisoning,” according to the company in charge of those shows. The former frontman of the popular 80s group The Smiths said he ate a dinner of tomato and penne pasta in Lima earlier in the week and fell ill three hours later. His security guard was also sickened. It is not clear whether the meal the singer ate before falling ill is the one that caused his illness. Morrissey was scheduled to perform in Chile July 15 through July 26, but has also postponed that part of his tour, which event promoters say will be rescheduled. His shows on July 28 in Argentina and on July 30 and August 1 and 2 in Brazil, however, appear to still be on. “I have returned to Los Angeles and to the expert supervision of my doctor Jeremy Fine, who assures me that I shall be fine (although not in the gossamer, powdery sense) for our upcoming shows in Argentina and Brazil,” the singer wrote on his website, True to You, Friday.
