Morrissey finally commented publicly on the recent South American tour drama and his bout of food poisoning.  He revealed it was a tomato/pasta dish that wreaked havok, and the whole ordeal forced him back to Los Angeles where he underwent five days of "round-the-clock" medical attention to get him back to health.   Read the full statement below or over at True To You:

"I can't give words to the sorrow I feel at the loss of perfect Peru. Oh, black cloud. After such a victorious and uplifting welcome of Lima love, the contaminated jinx had its way via a simple restaurant meal of penne pasta and tomato. Three hours later, both I, and security Liam have collapsed with a deadly and delirious bedridden disease. Five days of round-the-clock medical supervision just barely controls the corrosively toxic food poisoning. I know my luck too well. Sorrow replaces joy, and in every dream home a heartache. It could only be me.

I have returned to Los Angeles and to the expert supervision of my doctor Jeremy Fine, who assures me that I shall be fine (although not in the gossamer, powdery sense) for our upcoming shows in Argentina and Brazil. I have absolutely no idea where my beloved Chile has gone. In the heat of cancellations and postponements, the humiliation and mortification I feel on a personal level is too mammoth to be measured. If my spirits climb down any lower I could never again find the dignity to stand upright. We all live at the mercy of biological chance, and although I am not one to take refuge in clichés, I repeat my very servile apologies to any and all who back-packed their way to Peru. Alas, the dark shadow made the same journey.

Each year of life brings us nearer to our decline, but I will continue to seek a listener until I'm dead in a ditch."

As Morrissey indicated above, he'll return to South America at the end of the month for dates in Argentina and Brazil. From Morrissey's posting, it seems the axed Chile dates are in limbo, though the promoter for the Chile shows, Color Chile, recently announced the scrapped shows will be made up in August after the Brazil shows.  Stay tuned for more updates on the situation.

Morrissey is confirmed to play the following shows:

7/28 - Buenos Aires, Argentina @ Tecnopolis
7/30 - Sao Paulo, Brazil @ Credicard Hall
8/02 - Brasilia, Brazil @ Espaco Iguatemi
8/04 - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil @ Citibank Hall
