Morrissey: final UK shows?

Morrissey has issued a statement through his fan site True to You telling his followers that the shows at the Hammersmith in London on Sunday 20th and Monday 21st September might be his final UK shows. He was dropped by Harvest Records last year and new UK record deal has eluded his so far:

There is absolutely no way that we can generate any interest from record labels in the United Kingdom, therefore the imminent two nights at Hammersmith are likely to be our final ever UK shows. We are obsessively grateful for all interest and loyalty from our audience ... throughout 28 years ... but without new releases, there is no point in any additional touring. Thank you for so many absolutely incredible times. The pleasure and privilege is mine ...

Morrissey first release as a solo artist was the Suedehead single in February 1988.
