Singer Morrissey cancels remainder of tour, including Minneapolis date


It appears that Minnesota and Morrissey weren't meant to be.

For the third and apparently final time, the singer has cancelled a scheduled concert date in Minneapolis -- along with the rest of his North American tour, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

The former frontman of U.K. pop band The Smiths was scheduled to play the Orpheum Theatre March 22. This came after he postponed a Twin Cities concert date in January a make-up date of his postponed October show.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a statement issued by the 53-year-old singer's representatives cited "medical reasons" for the cancellation of the tour.

Several ailments, including a bleeding ulcer and Barrett's esophagus have forced Morrissey to cancel 21 shows over the past year, NBC reports.

A total of 22 tour dates were scrapped with the announcement.

Morrissey was scheduled to play in Kansas and Nebraska this week before heading to Minneapolis, followed by concerts in Chicago and the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa.
