As he continues to battle various health issues, Morrissey has been forced to cancel the remainder of his North American tour.
In January, Morrissey scrapped a series of dates due to a bleeding ulcer and throat condition Barrett's oesophagus.
While in San Francisco, Calif., over the weekend, the former frontman of The Smiths was diagnosed with double pneumonia, and he cancelled a gig in the city on Saturday. On Thursday, he axed a second performance at the Vive Latino festival in Mexico City.
The singer was scheduled to play a concert in Lawrence, Kansas, on Monday, but he has canceled the remaining 22 dates on his tour.
A statement from his management company reads: "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. Morrissey thanks all of his fans for their well wishes and thoughts."
