Doctor's orders force Morrissey to cancel tour

Morrissey is going to have to take a bow on the rest of his UK tour after his doctor ordered him to stop singing.

A total of seven shows have been canceled. According to media reports, Morrissey's managers are hoping he'll be well enough to perform his European tour beginning June 2 in Paris.

It seems the problem is a throat illness. According to the BBC, the 50-year-old former Smiths singer "had been advised by doctors earlier this week not to sing to ensure a complete recuperation."
