How to get tickets for Morrissey's new UK and Ireland tour dates
The former frontman of The Smiths and influential musician in his own right, Morrissey, is going on tour from September this year. Will you be bagging tickets?
It's impossible to talk about British music culture without mentioning The Smiths' impact.
The 1980s rock band were — and to an extent, still are — considered one of the most important acts in the music scene; they defined a whole era, and continue to shape generations with both Morrissey, the band's frontman, and Johnny Marr, the guitarist, still touring and releasing new music.
The Smiths rose to fame with singles 'This Charming Man' and 'What Difference Does It Make?'. Their eponymous album, The Smiths, charted at number two in the UK Albums Chart, and by then, The Smiths had already gathered a pretty large audience.
When the band split, Morrissey went solo and released the single 'Suedehead', then his debut album 'Viva Hate'.
With 13 solo studio albums behind him, the latest being 'I Am Not A Dog On A Chain' (released in 2020), and a string of The Smiths songs under his belt, Morrissey fans certainly aren't short of a bop or two to listen to. But, as we're sure you know, nothing beats seeing your favourite act live.
Luckily for you, Morrissey has just announced a UK and Ireland tour for autumn of this year.
The Mancunian will be playing a homecoming gig at Manchester's O2 Apollo, but not before he visits County Kerry in Ireland, Blackpool, Doncaster and Glasgow, then makes his way to Birmingham, Stockton, London, and finally closing in Brighton.
