Still ill: Morrissey cancels more

While Lil Wayne might be doing better than TMZ claimed, Morrissey seems to be iller than anyone thought. His start-stop-on-again-off-again US tour has been axed altogether:

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.
Don't worry, I've googled Barrett's esophagus for you:
Reflux may cause symptoms of heartburn. It may also damage the lining of the esophagus. The esophagus lining then changes in appearance and looks like the stomach lining (Barrett's esophagus).
In other words, Morrissey's stomach is clambering out of his belly towards his mouth. Wouldn't you take time off work if that was happening to you?
