Bad news Morrissey fans: after already postponing much of his U.S. tour due to his keyboardist’s health problems, the singer has completely cancelled all of his remaining dates.

The artist wrote on his website that the last six shows of his tour were being “pulled down.” He said that the finances for the tour were being managed by 360 Management, but once they postponed shows after Gustavo Manzur collapsed backstage at a Nov. 14 performance, the cash flow stopped.

“When Gustavo collapsed at the Boulder show … there was apparently not even enough money to transport the touring party to the next scheduled city, and 360 Management faded out as quickly as they had faded in,” the statement read. “Incontestably, the Morrissey Band is the best in the world. We have been repeatedly done over in recent years by slippery industry incompetents, yet we have always recovered our stride and bounced back like the sea – saving ourselves from those who wish us off the map.”

In the statement the singer also gives a recap of the year’s performances and adamantly thanks his fans. The artist has no more performances scheduled for the year.

Amy Schumer will not be bringing her brand of comedy Down Under this year, as she is apparently too sick to make the trip.

Live Nation issued a statement that the dates would be cancelled due to an illness and refunds would be issued. The statement also said that the company would try to schedule another round of dates in the region, The Guardian reported.

She was scheduled to perform in Perth, Melbourne, Boondall and Sydney in Australia and Auckland in New Zealand.

On a brighter note, Variety recently reported that Amy Schumer may be cast to play the character of Barbie in an upcoming film.

Schumer is a busy woman these days. She is not only a gifted standup comedian, which is how she initially attracted attention, but is now gaining fame as a writer, director, producer and actress. She’s earned multiple accolades for her Comedy Central show “Inside Amy Schumer,” has films in the pipeline and recently published a book, titled “The Girl with The Lower Back Tattoo.”

Why can’t they be friends? After numerous incidents, Jeremih has been kicked off his “Summer’s Over” tour with Partynextdoor.

The trouble had likely been brewing for sometime, but boiled over at a show in Jeremih’s native Chicago at Aragon Ballroom Nov. 29. It was there that fan videos showed the artist, after two songs, saying “Oh they some haters man, [expletive] ya’ll,” throwing the microphone on the stage floor and leaving the show. He later explained on his Twitter that he was talking to production staff, who had cut the sound off in his earpiece. 

The next show was in Houston, where Jeremih supposedly took the stage in a hoodie and cap, and performed a full set. Numerous fans didn’t feel satisfied with the performance though and accused the artist of putting an imposter onstage.

The last show he played was where the problems were in plain sight. Onstage, before performing his hit “Oui,” the singer dissed his tourmate for lip syncing and called out him and his crew. Jeremih later claimed pepper spray was being sprayed onstage to sabotage his performance.

It was after this series of events that the cancellation announcement came through a statement from Live Nation. It said that in order to create the best possible shows for the fans, Jeremih had to go. Full refunds will be made available to those who were hoping to catch the crooner.

There were only three shows left on the routing after Jeremih reportedly missed the San Antonio show. Partynextdoor still takes the stage tomorrow in Denver.
