Morrissey has postponed more shows in the US due to illness.

The former The Smiths frontman had hoped to restart his tour in Las Vegas on February 9, but this show has now been pulled, as has his February 10 date in Phoenix. Rescheduled dates are expected to be announced in the coming days.

Morrissey recently spoke out following his recent health troubles, which saw him hospitalised at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan.

The singer issued a statement to fan site True To You, explaining that he was treated for concussion, a bleeding ulcer and Barrett's esophagus.

He had said that he was keen to pick up his North American tour in Las Vegas, writing: "I am fully determined to resume the tour on February 9 at the Chelsea Ballroom in Las Vegas. If there's an audience of any kind in attendance, I just might die with a smile on my face, after all. If I am not there, I shall probably never again be anywhere."

These postponed gigs are already part of dates rescheduled from October last year, when Morrissey stopped mid-tour to return to the UK to be with his ill mother. She has since recovered.

Parlophone Records will put out a limited edition seven-inch picture disc of Morrissey's 1989 single 'The Last Of The Famous International Playboys' and a remastered version of his second solo album, 1991's 'Kill Uncle' on April 8.

Both will feature rare Morrissey photos while 'Kill Uncle' will boast a brand new cover.

The single release will be backed with live recordings, taken from a 2011 Janice Long Show session on BBC Radio 2. The seven-inch single comes with 'People Are The Same Everywhere', the CD with 'Action Is My Middle Name' and the digital download with 'The Kid's A Looker'.
