Morrissey cancels US concerts due to poor health
Morrissey has been forced to cancel the rest of his concerts in the US after series of “medical mishaps”, his publicist has announced.
Morrissey has suffered a number of illnesses including a bleeding ulcer, Barrett’s oesophagus and double pneumonia.
The 53-year-old ex-Smiths frontman, who was due to perform at Liberty Hall in Kansas on Monday, has pulled 22 shows.
Morrissey had already called off 21 gigs this year due to poor health.
His publicist said Morrissey fans would be refunded for the remaining gigs.
In February Morrissey apologized to his fans and said he was “on the road to recovery”.
Morrissey said in a statement published on fansite True To You that his ulcer was now “under reins” and assured fans he would be “fit as a ferret for San Diego”.
However, on Saturday his publicist Lauren Papapietro said despite his best efforts to try to continue touring Morrissey had “taken a hiatus and will not be able to continue on the rest of the tour”.Lauren Papapietro added: “Morrissey thanks all of his fans for their well-wishes and thoughts. Refunds for the remaining shows are available at point of purchase.”
Morrissey, who led revered Manchester indie band The Smiths in the 1980s, was treated in a Michigan hospital in January for a bleeding ulcer.
In recent months Steven Patrick Morrissey, a animal rights activist, who made his return to the stage last month at a show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, has also suffered from a throat condition, Barrett’s oesophagus, and anaemia.
