Morrissey Cancels North American Tour Over Health Issues
A bleeding ulcer and double pneumonia have beset the singer in recent months.
Morrissey has canceled all remaining dates on his planned North American tour.
Citing "medical reasons," a statement says the former Smiths frontman has chosen not to proceed with 22 planned dates across the U.S. The singer has been suffering from mounting health issues over the past months, including a bleeding ulcer, Barrett's esophagus and double pneumonia.
"Despite his best efforts to try to continue touring, Morrissey has to take a hiatus and will not be able to continue on the rest of the tour," the statement reads. "Morrissey thanks all of his fans for their well wishes and thoughts."
The tour, whose start was delayed by those health issues, nonetheless kicked off with a bang in Los Angeles with back-to-back dates earlier this month at Staples Center and Hollywood High School, in which the singer appeared to be in good health, spirits and voice.
Disappointed fans are directed to collect their refunds at point of purchase.
