The thing about Morrissey? He just wouldn’t be Morrissey if he wasn’t being Morrissey. And earlier this year he was again being Morrissey, kicking up a spot of trouble, this time in regards to the Manchester terrorist bombings – (arguably rightly) castigating UK politicians for not forcefully denouncing Islamic extremism.
With that, the recent England is Mine biopic, and a new album – Low in High School – coming in November, The Moz is once again at peak cultural relevance. And so naturally he’s taking the (“world tour. media whore”) show on the road again, launching a 17-date run with a Halloween extravaganza at Portland’s Schnitzer Concert Hall on 10/31. The tour will take him to all the “usual suspect” cities, including an amusingly odd two-night stand at The Hollywood Bowl with…Billy Idol. It wraps up in Boston on December 7, making it the perfect early holiday gift for your most literate and condescending Anglophile friends.
Just don’t expect to enjoy a hot dog with the show – Morrissey’s tours are still strictly vegan.
