After canceling various shows over the course of his current tour, Morrissey has canceled all remaining concerts scheduled through March and April.

"The remaining dates of the Morrissey U.S. North American tour have officially been pulled down due to medical reasons," a statement released on behalf of Morrissey read. "The singer has suffered a series of medical mishaps over the past few months including a bleeding ulcer, Barrett's esophagus and double pneumonia."

Morrissey first canceled shows earlier this year, citing his struggle with a bleeding ulcer and Barrett's esophagus as the reason for his cancelations.

The news of Morrissey's battle with double pneumonia broke last week, with conflicting reports released as to whether the Smiths alum was hospitalized.

"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 continued. "Morrissey thanks all of his fans for their well wishes and thoughts. Refunds for the remaining shows are available at point of purchase."

Morrissey was able to play a sold-out show at L.A.'s Staples Center earlier this month. The singer has now canceled shows across the U.S. in cities such as Philadelphia, Las Vegas, and San Francisco.
