    Morrissey Announces Rescheduled Tour Dates
    Including Additional Cities

    After nine shows in the Northeast this fall, Morrissey will continue his North American tour beginning in Greenvale, Long Island, NY, on January 9th and ending in Portland, Ore., on March 8th. The 32-city tour includes a date at the Staples Center with special guests Patti Smith and her band, as well as his first performance at Brooklyn Academy of Music in NYC. As always, Morrissey will perform greatest hits from his legendary catalog as well as new unreleased songs. Tickets for the rescheduled dates will go on sale on Monday, November 12th. Tickets for the added dates will go on sale on Friday, November 16th. Consult your local ticket outlet for more information. Any dates not rescheduled have been omitted due to lack of venue availability.

    Morrissey is recognized as one of the most prominent artists of his generation and is an idol for people around the world. Pitchfork has called him "one of the most singular figures in Western popular culture from the last twenty years." Morrissey's influence can be seen and felt throughout the music of countless artists who have noted him as their inspiration.

      It's a Susan Blonde-styled press release. Such quotes are not an uncommon thing to do in these instances, it's just that we've never really seen them from the Morrissey camp.

      Band top notch? Seriously, they are horrible. I can't sleep at night knowing the greatest singer in the World has such a bunch of hacks supporting him. The only person worth mentioning is Boz and he does not even try anymore.

      Funny how he'll do three night in a row to play in Chicago but he has no problem fucking the people of the northwest over by cancelling the Bellingham Washington show. I contacted the venue in Bellingham this afternoon and they confirmed they have nothing confirmed on either side of the Seattle show. As is so often the case Morrissey is not telling the truth.

      He's more interested in playing to a bunch of Mexicans in Texas.
