Morrissey: Tour ‘Will Not Be Rescheduled’

Morrissey has “no plans to continue” with the North American tour he officially cancelled yesterday due to a list of health woes that, over the last few months, has included a bleeding ulcer, Barrett’s esophagus and double pneumonia, according to a statement on the website

The ailing former Smiths frontman says he’s “bitterly disappointed” about the decision, and while he stops well short of saying he’ll never head stateside again, there’s nothing in his missive to suggest he’ll be hitting the road anytime soon. That’s bad news for fans in the 22 cities Moz was to have hit in the coming weeks, and diehards were no doubt hoping he’d reschedule the shows after regaining his strength.

Read Morrissey’s full statement below.

“It takes a lifetime to find the right words, and at the moment, I haven’t got them. I’ve been a colossal pain where this continuously unpredictable illness is concerned, and now the physical limits have been reached. The tour had, in fact, been fantastic for all of us – a new slice of life full of concentrated power. The audiences everywhere have given so much, although I know that neither of us will ever receive our due. I hope this isn’t the end, and I hope there will be other chances, minus the heavy burden of illness. Knots of grief today, but full of resolve for tomorrow.”
