Morrissey Cancels Remainder Of Tour

MorriseyIconic English singer and lyricist, Morrissey has cancelled the remainder of his tour dates due to illness and medical complications. After a serious of reshuffled tour dates and sporadic cancellations, a sickly path has been following Morrissey since the tours inception.

Since previously cancelling tour dates in the fall of 2012 due to his mother falling ill, Morrissey faced a number of his own on-going health issues including a bleeding ulcer, Barrett’s esophagus and double pneumonia. An official statement was released to confirm the news to fans:

“The remaining dates of the Morrissey U.S. North American tour have officially been pulled down due to medical reasons. The singer has suffered a series of medical mishaps over the past few 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. Morrissey thanks all of his fans for their well wishes and thoughts. Refunds for the remaining shows are available at point of purchase.”

Even though ticketholders to the remainder of Morrissey’s sold out tour will have to wait until next time to see him perform, the singer took to his personal website to share his thoughts:

“It takes a lifetime to find the right words, and at the moment, I haven’t got them. I’ve been a colossal pain where this continuously unpredictable illness is concerned, and now the physical limits have been reached. The tour had, in fact, been fantastic for all of us – a new slice of life full of concentrated power. I hope this isn’t the end, and I hope there will be other chances, minus the heavy burden of illness. Knots of grief today, but full of resolve for tomorrow.”

Here’s to wishing Morrissey a speedy and healthy recovery!
