(REUTERS) - British rock singer Morrissey was hospitalized in metro Detroit with a suspected bladder infection, further disrupting his US tour, his representative said on Saturday.

Morrissey, former lead singer for the 1980s alternative rock band The Smiths, checked into Beaumont Hospital on Friday in the suburb of Royal Oak, Michigan, said his spokesman Lauren Papapietro.

Due to an illness in his band, Morrissey, 53, had already cancelled his Thursday night show in Flint, Michigan, postponed the Friday night performance in Minneapolis and another engagement set for Saturday night in Chicago, Papapietro said.

She declined to say whether Morrissey has been released from the hospital, but said further details would be made known.
