Morrissey - Pneumonia Diagnoses Leads Morrissey To Cancel Entire Tour

Morissey fans face disappointment once again, after the singer’s continuing health issues have forced him to cancel the remaining dates of his North American tour.

This comes after a number of gigs were scrapped in January, once again because of health issues. The latest development on the former frontman of The Smiths: while in San Francisco earlier this week, Morrissey was diagnosed with double pneumonia. We’re not exactly sure what that is (you’re welcome to google it though), but sadly, it means that the singer will not be able to perform for a while. He cancelled a gig on Saturday and later, this Thursay, another one was axed from the tour schedule. The next concert Morrissey was scheduled to play was Monday in Kansas, but that has now been scrapped, along with the remaining 22 dates of the North American tour.

Morrissey’s management had this to say about the cancellations: "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." Naturally, this comes as a huge letdown to the ticketholders for the various tour stops, but all ticket sales will be refunded in due time and hopefully, Morrissey will be back on his feet (and on tour) sometime this year.
