On, off, on, off, on ... off.

After two previous postponements, Morrissey's Las Vegas return has officially been scrapped as part of the British music icon's complete North American tour cancellation, the result of a "series of maladies, including double pneumonia, a bleeding ulcer and a gastrointestinal problem called Barrett's esophagus," according to London's Guardian.

Originally set for November 23, the Chelsea Ballroom show was moved to February 9 so the singer could be with his ailing mother in England. The rescheduled date was then postponed while the 53-year-old former Smiths frontman underwent treatment for his ulcer, and rescheduled for April 20.

Again, that's November 23 to February 9 to April 20 to off completely. Not that anyone should be the least bit confused by what's gone on with this show.
