In recent weeks, Morrissey has been plagued with a bleeding ulcer, Barrett’s esophagus and double pneumonia, a statement from the musician’s rep said.
As a result, those anticipating to see the artist perform his upcoming March shows in Lawrence, Kansas; Lincoln, Nebraska; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Chicago, Illinois; Clear Lake, Iowa; Nashville, Tennessee; and Atlanta, Georgia will have to wait until his next tour.
“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 said. “Morrissey thanks all of his fans for their well wishes and thoughts.”
