Billboard is reporting that British rock veteran Morrissey has been hospitalized in Royal Oak, Michigan after canceling a concert Thursday in nearby Flint.

A representative for the former Smiths frontman said that he was admitted to the William Beamont Hospital, and is undergoing tests for a suspected bladder infection.

The concert, like several of Morrissey's recent dates, had actually been rescheduled previously -- from last year, when the singer/songwriter interrupted a tour in October in order to spend time with his ailing mother.

A previous release indicated that Morrissey canceled Thursday's show and postponed two additional ones due to a "band illness." It was expected that the tour would resume Monday, but it's not yet clear whether his condition will require a further delay.
