The Guardian Gets It Wrong Again!

Let’s get real. “ Former Morrissey fans” have not organized anything. That “Has-Been Haslam” character was never a Morrissey fan. And his agenda, stated as using music to spread peace, could not be any further from the truth. He is simply using the situation to gain some much needed attention to himself. Apparently his golden years have not been kind. If he really wanted to make a political statement he would make one about the Politicians. But no, that is not what he wants here. He is using this platform for his own agenda. At the end of the day, bullshit is still bullshit.

We are in the business of creating music and performing music. We are actually not in the business of politics, or bullshit. We’ll leave that to Wannabees like Mr Haslam and the Editors of The Guardian.

Morrissey en Lima: ex The Smiths ofrecerá concierto en la capital - El Comercio
El cantante británico de 59 años se presentará en el anfiteatro del parque de la exposición. En 2013 canceló dos shows en Lima por problemas de salud

Excerpt (Google Translate to English):

2018 still has pleasant surprises for Peruvian music lovers, and November is the key month. After confirming the return of Roger Waters, announces the arrival of another 'rock monster': with the promotional tour of the album "Low in High School", Morrissey will return to Lima for a show on November 27.

The i2M producer , responsible for the recent visits of the Spanish rapper Kase.O and the American singer KT Tunstall, confirmed the news. The Morrissey concert in Lima will take place at the Anfiteatro Parque de la Exposición. Tickets will go on sale on a date yet to be announced.
Information via Rosie (thank you):



No substantial links and initial information is said to be withdrawn.
So definitely a rumour (as per other latin dates)
which has spread rapidly on social media. The Ocesa gig post looked legit despite vanishing.
Anything tangible will be posted asap.

FWD.

Now confirmed as a full Latin tour - 25th June.

Ex-Hacienda DJ Dave Haslam is throwing a free party to coincide with Morrissey’s forthcoming visit to the city. He says the party, featuring more than a dozen of the city’s top DJs is “in response to Morrissey’s divisive views, and his support for the far-right.”

Morrissey has attracted controversy for a host of remarks and opinions – including undermining the #metoo campaign and claiming there’s “no difference between eating animals and paedophilia”.

In recent years, the ex-Smiths singer’s views on race have become particularly strident. Morrissey has described the Chinese people “a sub-species”, heavily criticised Angela Merkel for opening German borders to refugees, and has gone on record supporting far-right figures like Anne Marie Waters and EDL founder Tommy Robinson. He does, however, claim to have “Muslim friends”.

“Manchester is our home, it’s a city built on...
