Morrissey has cancelled the remainder of his US tour.

A statement issued on behalf of the singer cited "medical mishaps" as the reason for the cancellation of the planned shows, reports BBC News. Morrissey has been suffering from mounting health issues over the past few months, including Barrett's esophagus, a bleeding ulcer and double pneumonia.

The singer's publicist, Lauren Papapietro, said in a statement: "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."

The 53-year-old was next due to perform at Liberty Hall in Kansas on Monday (March 18) but that gig along with a further 22 shows have been pulled. The singer has previously cancelled 21 gigs this year.

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.
