Morrissey will perform in Brazil in 2023. The singer, former lead singer of the British band The Smiths, returns to the country after five years. It arrives in October. Dates and locations will be defined.
Brazil is the sixth country that most listened to Morrissey's songs in 2022, according to the singer himself posted, prominently, on his official website . Only the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy and Australia heard more Morrissey than Brazil last year.
He has already come to Brazil a few times. In 2015, he had a successful tour. He returned in 2018. During the pandemic, he was releasing controversial statements, which created a certain rejection of his figure.
But it has an enviable history in music. The BBC cited him as "one of the most influential figures in British pop history". In a 2002 poll, the NME declared The Smiths to be "the most influential band of all time", ranking above the Beatles. Rolling Stone named him one of the greatest vocalists of all time and praised his "rejection of convention". .
Morrissey is touring Europe at the moment. In shows, he has included 4 to 5 Smiths songs in the repertoire.
