I admitted that I had been mistaken about the size of the venue. For some reason, I believed it to be a small one. Now that I know it is in fact very large, I don't believe it will sell out and I feel I am justified in thinking so if the Arrowhead Pond at Anaheim was any indication, this in the very heart of Morrissey's biggest fanbase. (I don't know the actual figures for that show, but I know it was about less than 1/2 full when Morrissey was on although the place got more packed when Jaguares came on. Part of this may have been because Morrissey was technically an opening act, but he played a full set. Ticket prices were also rather high.) It may sell out and I'll be happy for Morrissey if it does (if this thing is real and absolutely nothing has been confirmed).
Also, it's very rude to make assumptions about people's financial situations and to pass judgment. Not everyone has that kind of money to spend on one night, nor should they feel obligated to do so. Not even for Morrissey. It's very likely he'll tour later this year anyway. This goes for the Pimp as well, even though he and I've been getting along lately. Who are any of you to tell people how to spend their money and to assume that because they can't afford a trip to Manchester for an hour and a half long Morrissey performance that it must mean they spend all their money on "frivolous" things?
Frivolous things like rent and car insurance and food and clothes and the occasional record album, you mean? The nerve.
