Morrissey has apologised to fans after cancelling the remainder of his South American tour due to a "lack of funding". The former Smiths frontman had postponed 14 dates earlier this month after suffering from food poisoning.

Poor health has forced the singer to axe almost all of his tour dates this year, including his North American leg. Writing on the fan site True To You, Morrissey said it had been a year of "too many disappointments".

"I am informed today that the projected tour of South America is snuffed out, thus euthanised - due, I'm reliably advised, to lack of funding," he wrote.BBC
