I have just succeeded in getting tickets for the Morrissey show at M.E.N Arena ahead of the advertised 09:30 time Saturday 28th.
A quick re-try of the site tells me that tickets are shifting at about 10 seats a minute at the monent.
It only seems that www.gigsandtours.com is early with the release as tickemaster and others are still not listing the show.

I found out on popbitch that all the standing tickets to The Morrissey MEN gig were sold out the day before they went on sale ( its 3.30 on Friday 27th )
I checked - and it appears to be true - so I had to make do with crappy seated numbers.
WTF is all that about??
How can they be sold out THE DAY BEFORE they go on sale - and how come I was able to buy tickets in the seated area.
Is this to discourage people calling in the morning - or is it the ticket operator ( seem to be the sole supplier ) spreading their bets??
either way, bastards.

Just wanted to give more details on the Morrissey aftershow party.
It takes place at The Brickhouse nightclub on Whitworth St West in central Manchester. For anyone who wants more Smiths/Morrissey music into the early hours after the great man's concert, its a must. On the night, entrance will put you into a free raffle for a signed Morrissey photo. I MUST PUT THAT MORRISSEY HASN'T CONFIRMED TOO BE HERE (ALTHOUGH HE HAS BEEN INVITED). Tickets are a fiver from ticketline. As for anyone who hasn't had the chance to get tickets for the gig, the weekend prior to the concert, we will be giving away a pair of tickets to see the man.
For more info contact ticketline or Dave at the Brickhouse on 01612364418

Julia Riley's TRUE TO YOU is probably the longest running American Morrissey/The Smiths fanzine that I know of. This longest-running title was previously held by THE MORRI'ZINE, edited by Nicole Garrison (and sometime Rob Nebeker), who ran it for about six years from 1988 to 1994.
It has been about ten years since the first issue of TRUE TO YOU #1 (Autumn 1994) was made available. I remember picking up this very issue at Tower Records, which, at the time, carried all sorts of fanzines in the magazine section.
TRUE TO YOU #15's cover photograph was taken by Tim Brangham (Los Angeles, Dec 99) and more details can be found on my website and on the official website true-to-you.net.
"A CHANCE TO SHINE is UK's longest running Morrissey fanzine (started in 1991 and still publishing). A CHANCE TO SHINE #15 will be available in July 2004, more details on http://www.morrissey.co.uk/.
