Morrissey's manager has denied that the singer was attacked

Morrissey ended a gig in San Diego early after fans stormed the stage, with one appearing to attack the former Smiths singer.

While performing his 1988 hit ‘Every Day Is Like Sunday’ a number of crowd members made their way on to the stage.

In footage, which you can see below, one of the fans appears to strike Morrissey in the face, causing the singer to leave the stage and the song to end abruptly.

Before that, Morrissey is seen reaching out to the other people who came on stage while security struggles to maintain them.

According to TMZ, who broke the news, Morrissey did not take part in his now customary meet and greet with fans post-gig.

Morrissey recently appeared on The Late Late Show With James Corden to perform his cover of The Pretenders’ ‘Back On The Chain Gang’.

He wore one of his own tour T-shirts for the performance, while his backing band wore matching T-shirts bearing the slogan “Living bodies that actually move”. It’s a T-shirt Morrissey’s band has occasionally worn in concert before.

The former Smiths singer had announced last month that a studio cover of The Pretenders’ No 17 hit ‘Back On The Chain Gang’ would be included on an expanded reissue of last year’s album ‘Low In High School’.

A video for the song features Morrissey playing guitar for the first time – Morrissey had previously stated he preferred not to play guitar, as it gave him better freedom of movement on stage in concert.
