Sir Cliff Richard has announced a free headline show in New York after his Morrissey support show was cancelled.
The singer will perform at The Gramercy Theatre on June 21, and ticket holders for the original show at Brooklyn's Barclays Center will be given priority.
Announcing the news of the free show via a video message on Facebook, Richard said: "I know that many of you are disappointed because the New York concert is cancelled, but what can you do? Morrissey is not well. I am also disappointed... I've decided I'm going to go anyway to New York and I'm going to put on an evening. It won't be the show I had planned to do at Morrissey but it could be a real nice evening... I hope I'll see you and we'll get over our disappointment together."
Morrissey was recently forced to postpone live dates in Atlanta, Baltimore and Washington. He then cancelled his entire US tour to give him time to recover from his bout of ill health, which included his show with Sir Cliff.
