Morrissey Cancels U.S. Tour

Morrissey Cancels U.S. Tour
Morrissey fans are experiencing a sense of déjà vu, since the former Smiths frontman has cancelled another U.S. tour.

This doesn't come as too much of a surprise, since it follows a series of recent show cancellations. A statement on semi-official fan site True to You reveals that Morrissey caught a virus from opening act Kristeen Young, who had already left the tour due to poor health. Morrissey collapsed following his June 7 show in Boston, MA.

A separate statement on Facebook refers to the virus as a "respiratory infection." He's expected to make a full recovery, but not in time to complete the tour. See the axed schedule below.

There's no word as to whether the dates will be made up, but the statement on True to You notes that Moz and his band consider some of the completed shows on the tour to be among their best ever.

Early last year, Morrissey similarly rescheduled a U.S. tour before cancelling it outright due to health issues.

Morrissey's album World Peace Is None of Your Business is due out on July 15 through Harvest Records. In the meantime, read our Morrissey timeline here.
