      Me too! When I heard it on the car radio, I cried, and I was 19!

      I just checked.
      If it was mid Dec or mid Jan it wouldn't be so bad.

      I'm going to be shattered if there is no Brisbane show
      Be happy! I'm ecstatic. Flights are fine - $200 return from Melbourne to Sydney (at good times) on Qantas. They can't drag the whole tour on with weeks of gaps just to cover everyone's issues and diaries. He's been touring most of the year, so I'm grateful he's pushing it out so late in Dec.
      If the next announcements don't suit, pick where and when is best and make a big trip of it. I went to Istanbul last month and the whole experience was mind blowing. One of the best things I ever did. My feet didn't touch the ground for a week.

      I am confused ? Why is it ok to go to New Zealand (Saturday 15 December AUCKLAND Vector Arena (NZ) !!!!!!!!!!!!!
      THE HOME OF LAMB SLAUGHTER?????????????
      Yet he won't go to Canada because of the seal clubbing!!!!!!!!!

      To me this says Canada please KILL the seals in the same manner that New Zealand KILL the lambs and I will be happy to put you on the tour !!!!!!!

      Canada get your act together and start KILLING those seals in a more New Zealand fashion and I'm sure he will be more than happy to put you on the tour

      Re: the jamb slaughter post - not sure if it's a troll or the poster is just really dull. By your logic, Morrissey would only play shows in vegetarian countries. Sure, NZ kills a lot of lambs, but isn't the USA the land of beef slaughter. Don't they have bullfighting in Morrissey's beloved Mexico?

      Morrissey's refusal to play Canada was not his smartest move. Doesn't mean he shouldn't play New Zeajand though.

(Personally, I have no interest in seeing Simple Minds, but am a big Church fan, so was considering that show ... until now, obviously.)

      Librarian on Fire - guess I'll see you there?
      Indeed. Just need to get my ticket in my hot little hand before I can relax.

      Give it time, but I think it would be nice to organise an after gig drink somewhere. Meet ups and all that. Not before the gig as I'll be camped outside Vector. Is 2pm to early?

      I pity you. No doubt this will be wasted on someone as blunt as yourself, however, I'm prepared to try.

      NZ is the biggest exporter of lamb but only have 4% of the world's sheep population. The majority of sheep are being slaughtered elsewhere.

      I wonder what ticket prices will be like esp. for SOH. $100? $85? I would tend to doubt that Moz would be playing falls. The man does have a soul, doesn't he? Or is he the grinch in drag? Oh wait, thats Boz.

      Hmmm ... I will still be feeling an awful lot calmer once this is announced somewhere more "official" than True-to-You. Somewhere with the name of a promoter, details of ticket sales, etc. I wonder who Morrissey would get for support for the Auckland show? Would be a dream gig for a bunch of local indie bands

      The 3 extra dates doesn't mean extra cities, this could be the situation where Morrissey plays 2 shows in Sydney, 2 shows in Melbourne ... and that's it for Australia. Why else not confirm all dates at once?
