Health concerns are forcing Morrissey to cancel his North American tour.

In a statement released Friday night, his rep says the singer has to take a break after suffering a series of maladies, including double pneumonia, a bleeding ulcer and a gastrointestinal problem called Barrett’s esophagus.

Fans can get refunds where they purchased their tickets. Morrissey thanked fans for their well wishes.

Morrissey had to cancel performances earlier this month because of his pneumonia.
