morrissey cancels concert dates

Poor Morrissey!

While the former Smiths frontman had previously made announced his desire to retire from performing for good once he hit 55, it appears that he's been forced to put those plans on the fast-track due to increasingly problematic health issues described as a "series of medical mishaps"….and has officially canceled the remainder of his North American tour dates!

As we all know, the 53-year-old needed to postpone three dates back in January when he was hospitalized with a bleeding ulcer, then suffered double pneumonia earlier this month, as well as Barrett's esophagus, which is linked to long-term acid reflux!

A statement from his rep reads:

"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."

Hey! As disappointing as it must be for the fans, we can't imagine how frustrated, exhausted, and burnt out he's feeling himself right now, considering everything he's gone through recently!

We just hope he focuses on getting his health and wellness back on track, and hopefully, once that's happened, he can re-assess his feelings about taking the stage again and make the best judgement call possible he can!

In the meantime, rest up, stay strong, and get better!

You're in our thoughts, boo!

    He needs a nice, warm bowl of duck gumbo. Its good for the tummy.

    He needs to switch to an organic, alkaline diet. All of the acidic food and drink in the traditional diet will lead to disease. Most doctors know very little about the power of food and the fact that it can help heal. Bad food (packaged, processes, junk) damages the body.

    He'll tour again. Stuff happens. There's no need for this to be the end once he takes care of his issues. He's young compared to a lot of still performing out there. Morrissey strikes me as a man who is better when he is expressing himself. Get well, sir.

    Re: girlmakingithappen – Touring is jumping from venue to neighborhoods to countries; different hotels, group airplane air, restaurant food and wacky sleep schedules. It's too easy to come down with something travelling even if you're fit and healthy. Forget to wash your hands once or breath something in, and it takes a toll. You really have to know your complete nutrition and get a lot of Vitamin D. I tried vegetarianism and was always low on iron and sick, and I did it right. Not total vegan anymore, and all good.
