Morrissey cancels remainder of U.S. tour over ailing mother, promises to reschedule

Less than a week after postponing this week’s concerts, Morrissey today pulled the plug on the rest of his U.S. tour in order to stay in England with his ailing mother — but insists the concerts are not canceled, only postponed, and will be rescheduled “shortly.”

On Monday, Morrissey called off concerts this week in Pittsburgh, Pa.; Columbus, Ohio; Flint, Mich.; and Chicago, Ill. Now the rest of the tour, which was to run through Dec. 8, is similarly scrubbed. Here’s the fulls statement, posted to fansite True To You today:

All remaining dates on the current US Tour have been postponed – but not cancelled – as Morrissey has returned to England where his mother has been hospitalized and is unwell. Due to issues with his mother’s health, Morrissey will need to remain by her side during this difficult period.

Those who have already purchased tickets for all upcoming dates are highly encouraged to hold on to their tickets and look out for the rescheduled dates. The new dates will be announced shortly.

Morrissey would like to thank everyone for their understanding and patience as the shows are being prepared for a swift reschedule.
