A concert promoter in Peru said that the 14 canceled dates will be rescheduled in the coming months, and a promoter in Chile has said that the singer has returned to England to be under the care of personal physicians.

This series of cancelations is one of many for Morrissey over the past year. The South American leg of the tour was supposed to be the singer's return to the stage following the cancelation of a North American leg due to "a series of medical mishaps over the past few months including a bleeding ulcer, Barrett's esophagus and double pneumonia."

"Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
