Morrissey Announces UK And Ireland Tour
Morrissey has confirmed the dates for his upcoming UK and Ireland tour. Last week, the former Smiths singer announced nine forthcoming shows in Blackpool, Doncaster, Glasgow, Stockton, Manchester, Birmingham, London and Brighton along with his previously announced concert in Ireland. Now he has confirmed the dates and venues in an Instagram post.
Morrissey is due to play a residency – titled Viva Moz Vegas – at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, on 1, 2, 6, 7, and 9 July. For more info and tickets, click here.
A post on Morrissey’s official website said, “The Morrissey concerts in Las Vegas in July will showcase songs from the album Bonfire Of Teenagers, which was recorded in January 2021.”
A statement from the former Smiths frontman added: “The thrill of this album was the speed under which it was recorded. Considering the knots of grief I had experience [sic] at the time, it made ‘Bonfire’ an incredible achievement for me.”
Fans of The Smiths will also be interested in the outcome of Bonham’s The John Peel Archive auction, which will see several rare Smiths items from the personal collection of the former DJ sold. Items include the first demo tape the band sent to the DJ, a gold disc award for the B-sides and rarities album, A Hatful Of Hollow, a signed copy of the single What Difference Does It Make?, and a test pressing of the band’s debut single, Hand In Glove/Handsome Devil. The auction will take place today (14 June).
