Morrissey has postponed another US tour date after being diagnosed with double pneumonia.

Initial reports claimed that the singer had been admitted to hospital with the illness, however that has been denied by his spokesperson. Lauren Papapietro told BBC News "Morrissey is not/was not hospitalised." A date scheduled in San Francisco on Saturday night (March 9) has been postponed until May 1 with all tickets previously purchased set to be honoured on the new date.

Double pneumonia is the name given when a person is suffering from pneumonia in both of their lungs at the same time. Morrissey's next scheduled live performance is this Thursday, March 14, where he is due to co-headline the Vive Latino Festival in Mexico.

Morrissey has been affected by ill health throughout 2013 and 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, which he opened up by saying: "The reports of my death have been greatly understated." The former frontman of The Smiths went on to explain that he was treated for concussion, a bleeding ulcer and Barrett's esophagus, and as such had to cancel a number of shows.
