While 2014 seemed to be off to a good start for the often troubled pop star, his recent U.S. comeback tour was abruptly canceled when the singer apparently fell ill, leading to a messy public spat with ousted opener Kristeen Young, who Morrissey's camp blamed for getting him sick. It is unclear when the singer will tour again, or whether he will attempt to make up the leg of dates he missed.
