Former Smiths frontman Morrissey leaves Liverpool's Echo Arena stage after being hit by drink thrown from crowd
Shocked star Morrissey walked off stage two songs into a gig at Liverpool's Echo Arena tonight after being hit on the head by a drink thrown from the crowd.
The former Smiths frontman was just two songs into the gig at when he was struck.
He was struck just moments after shaking hands with members of the audience by what appeared to be a half full plastic glass.
The attack happened after he had opened with This Charming Man and was playing second song Black Cloud.
Wearing a brown suit and blue shirt, the 50-year-old Mancunian star walked off stage followed by his band and refused to come back on.
The incident comes two weeks after Morrissey collapsed on stage with breathing difficulties during a gig in Swindon.
The concert was stopped for around 15 minutes as the crowd chanted his name. Around 10 minutes later a member of the crew announced that the singer had been hit on the head by what was described as a bottle and the concert would not continue.THE Liverpool Echo
