Morrissey has confirmed he'll be back on the road in America this week (beg25Feb13) after postponing a string of shows due to a bleeding ulcer.

The former The Smiths star will make his comeback by performing on late-night chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday (26Feb13) - the day before he hits the stage for a concert in San Diego, California.

His gigs this week also include a special show at Hollywood High School on 2 March (13) and a much-anticipated concert at the Staples Center, where Morrissey will be joined by rocker Patti Smith.

The Everyday is Like Sunday singer was forced to put his tour on hold in January (13) after being diagnosed with a bleeding ulcer and Barrett's esophagus. His revamped North American tour will now run until the end of April (13).
