Morrissey Cancels Shows: Smiths Singer Postpones Tour Dates

Bad news for Morrissey fans. The Smiths alum has canceled more of his upcoming shows, due to illness.

Morrissey first canceled concerts earlier this month, citing a bleeding ulcer and Barrett's esophagus as the reason for his cancelation. "Morrissey thanks everyone concerned for their well wishes during this time and hopes for a speedy recovery," a rep for Morrissey said at the time of the first cancelations.

While he intended to resume his tour in El Paso on Feb. 12, that show was canceled and he announced that the tour would return on Feb. 21 in Denver. That show has since been canceled as well.

A post on Morrissey's Facebook page reads, "Morrissey is currently undergoing treatment for a bleeding ulcer and Barrett’s esophagus. These shows are in the process of being rescheduled immediately and all patrons are encouraged to hold on to their tickets as the new dates will be announced shortly. Morrissey thanks everyone concerned for their well wishes and looks forward to getting back on the road."

Other canceled dates include Morrissey's Feb. 22 show in Salt Lake City and Feb. 24 show in San Francisco.
