And here comes the full bummer. After postponing his Ryman performance earlier this year — which was rescheduled from Jan. 29 to March 29 — Morrissey has officially canceled his make-up show, as well as the remainder of his tour dates. As you likely already know, The Pope of Mope has been down with the sickness quite frequently in recent months. Here's the official release:

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

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. Refunds for the remaining shows are available at point of purchase.

Morrissey is recognized as one of the most prominent artists of his generation and is an idol for people around the world. Pitchfork has called him "one of the most singular figures in Western popular culture from the last twenty years." Morrissey's influence can be seen and felt throughout the music of countless artists who have noted him as their inspiration.

Maybe it's his diet?
