When it rains, it pours, ladies and gentlemen. As Morrissey continues to undergo treatment for a bleeding ulcer and Barrett’s esophagus, the singer has now postponed his upcoming shows in Texas. If you’re still keeping count, Moz has canceled or postponed a whopping 16 concerts since falling ill.
Here’s the official statement for the latest postponements (via BrooklynVegan):
As the doctor has ordered MORRISSEY to rest for two additional weeks, the upcoming Texas engagements in El Paso (2/12), Austin (2/13), Pharr (2/15), Beaumont (2/16), and Dallas (2/18) will need to be rescheduled. MORRISSEY is currently undergoing treatment for a bleeding ulcer and Barrett’s esophagus. These shows are in the process of being rescheduled immediately and all patrons are encouraged to hold on to their tickets as the new dates will be announced shortly. MORRISSEY thanks everyone concerned for their well wishes and looks forward to getting back on the road. The tour will resume as scheduled in Denver at Temple Hoyne Buell Theatre on Feb 21.
