Morrissey is set to play London’s O2 Arena in November as part of a European tour, provided the singer does not fall ill.

The former Smiths frontman announced the news on his semi-official fan site True to You, posting all the dates of his autumn shows in Portugal, Italy, Austria, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Germany and England.

The tour will be Morrissey’s first since the release of his new album World Peace is None of Your Business last month.

But the singer has suffered bad health in the past few months, cancelling a string of US tour dates in June after contracting a respiratory infection.

Last year, Morrissey was diagnosed with double pneumonia and revealed he had been cautioned to retire from music.

The 55-year-old’s latest album was recently dropped from label Capitol-Harvest just three weeks before its release.

The singer became embroiled in a dispute with his former label over allegations it had failed to promote the album that led to the LP being removed from digital retailers.

Morrissey is currently looking for a label to issue the album, according to a post on True To You.
