Morrissey cancels tour: Former Smiths singer Morrissey canceled his North American tour due to “series of medical mishaps.”
British singer-songwriter Morrissey has canceled his remaining North American tour dates due to medical issues.
In all, the former Smiths singer, born Steven Patrick Morrissey, withdrew from 22 shows after already canceling 21 shows this year over health problems, according to the BBC.
He has suffered double pneumonia, a bleeding ulcer, and Barrett’s oesophagus in recent months.
A spokesperson said he was canceling the shows due to a “series of medical mishaps,” according to E! Online.
Morrissey, 53, “had taken 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,” spokeswoman Lauren Papapietro told the BBC.
“Morrissey thanks all of his fans for their well-wishes and thoughts. Refunds for the remaining shows are available at point of purchase,” she added.
He has canceled shows in Chicago, Nashville, Atlanta, Dallas, Las Vegas, and San Francisco, according to Entertainment Weekly. He was slated to perform at Liberty Hall in Kansas on Monday.
The tour was to wrap up on April 30 in San Francisco.
