With hospitalizations for a bleeding ulcer, Barrett's esophagus and, now, double pneumonia, the announcement that Morrissey was cancelling the balance of his U.S. tour was no surprise.
The singer has had a number of medical problems in the last couple of years that has led to the cancelling or postponing of a handful of shows but, on this tour, he had already put off 21 shows and his health hasn't seemed like it was improving.
A statement issued by his management said '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. Morrissey thanks all of his fans for their well wishes and thoughts.'
Out are 22 dates between March 18 and April 30. Ticket holders should contact their venues for refunds.
