Morrissey is still recovering from a bout of bilateral pneumonia, and it appears he is too ill to perform at tonight's Vive Latino festival in Mexico City. Though Morrissey's official site has not commented officially, the Vive Latino festival site posted the following (translated) statement to concertgoers:

"Live announces the cancellation of the opening day of early Thursday March 14 due to health status of British singer Morrissey...The Rebate will be starting on Monday, March 18 at 12:00 am in the place where you purchased it. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to the public."

Read the full statement here.

Morrissey was well enough to write a tribute to a huge fan of his named Margaret who passed away last week. Morrissey reports that Margaret managed to get on stage at last week's show in Davis, California. Read Morrissey's tribute (which ended with a Royal zinger) below:

"I did not know Margaret on a personal level, but she was always there on the front row - the UK, the US, Israel - wherever we'd go, she'd go. Last week Margaret drove behind the tour bus all the way from Davis to Seattle, and managed to get onstage at Davis. I had signed her arm and it was now a tattoo. This week she is dead. I can only hope, for Margaret, that death yields the profit of rest, and somehow provides her with a listener.

We all weary of living in the same skin day after day, in a world where only the blandly trivial are allowed to be heard, but there is nothing wrong with taking your destiny into your own hands, just as there is nothing wrong in understanding what is meant for you and what isn't. We are plonked into life without ever choosing to be, and we are despised if we fail to find a paralyzed spot in which to keep still and shut up. Margaret was a woman of action, who now knows the soul of the world.

Meanwhile, on today's AOL News Page, headlines tell us that Victoria Beckham has reportedly dropped her "fake" look, and William and Kate are in search of yet another home - the constitutional frigidity of a media world now openly obsessed with zombies and morons."

Morrissey's next live date is scheduled for Lawrence, Kansas on March 18th.
