Morrissey has cancelled all dates on his US tour due to illness.

The singer was recently forced to postpone live dates in Atlanta, Baltimore and Washington, and has now cancelled his entire tour to give him time to recover from his bout of ill health.

A note on the singer's Facebook page explains that the singer is suffering from a respiratory infection he caught in Miami, and his symptoms have now worsened.

"It is with great sadness that the remainder of the US Tour has been cancelled. The respiratory infection Morrissey contracted in Miami has worsened, and in the interest of making a full recovery, all further touring plans have been halted. Morrissey thanks his fans for their compassion, understanding, and well-wishes during this difficult period as he recuperates," the post reads.

Morrissey fansite True To You has reported that the singer contracted his illness from his longtime support act Kristeen Young. "Difficulties had arisen on May 31st following Kristeen Young’s opening set at the Miami Knight Concert Hall, after which Kristeen confessed to "a horrendous cold", the symptoms of which were passed on to Morrissey resulting in the cancellation of the next show in Atlanta," the site claims. The post also alleges that the singer was asked not to play the immediate planned subsequent shows, but she decided to pull out of the entire tour.

However, Young has denied this in a subsequent Facebook post, writing: "I did not 'confess to a horrendous cold'. On Monday, June 2nd, I had an allergy attack that was over within 16 hours. I went to a doctor (on Monday, June 2nd), an allergy specialist, who gave me drugs for allergies…and they worked. I explained this (early on Tuesday, June 3rd) and offered this doctor’s phone number to Morrissey personally, via email, and the tour manager."

She added: "I am very sorry that Morrissey is not feeling well. But I will not tolerate these lies….particularly about my health. This is really too much and bizarre."

Morrissey's upcoming LP 'World Peace Is None Of Your Business' will be released later this year on July 14. He is currently streaming the song 'Earth Is The Loneliest Planet' from the record.
