Morrissey cancels U.S. tour due to health problems

After several health-related postponements, Morrissey has decided to cancel the remainder of his North American tour dates.

His publicist sent out a message last night, noting “The singer has suffered a series of medical mishaps over the past few months including a bleeding ulcer, Barrett’s esophagus, and double pneumonia.”

All told, the British singer is calling off 22 dates, including stops in Chicago, Nashville, Atlanta, Dallas, Las Vegas, and San Francisco. According to the press release, refunds will be available at the point of purchase.

Moz has been making quite a bit of noise during this particular jaunt. He stood up Jimmy Kimmel as a protest against his fellow Jimmy Kimmel Live! guests from the show Duck Dynasty, then called out artists like BeyoncĂ© and Paul McCartney in a series of rants. Along the way, his health has betrayed him, though he did manage to pull off a high-profile show at Los Angeles’ Staples Center that featured almost no meat products for sale at concession stands. (Morrissey is a militant vegetarian.)
