    Here's a little blurb about the Indio, CA - Fastasy Springs show (comes from their website)...

    MORRISSEY
    8PM · SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5th
    SPECIAL EVENTS CENTER
    TICKETS ON SALE 10AM FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2nd

    As the lead singer of the Smiths, arguably the most important indie band in Britain during the '80s, Morrissey's theatrical crooning and literate, poetic lyrics -- filled with romantic angst, social alienation, and cutting wit -- connected powerfully with a legion of similarly sensitive, disaffected youth. These fans turned The Smiths into stars in Britain, exerting tremendous pull over much of the country's guitar-based music for many years after their breakup, and even if the group remained underground cult artists in the States, they had a fanbase that slowly, steadily grew larger over the years. Indeed, a few years after The Smiths's breakup in 1987, Morrissey's American cult had grown to the point where he became more popular in the U.S. than in his homeland, where he neverthless was never far from the music press headlines. After a quiet period around the turn of the millennium, Morrissey launched a comeback in 2004 with You Are the Quarry, an album whose success proved that he remained one of the most beloved figures in alternative rock.

    Perhaps. I'm sure we'll find out soon enough! Already secured a room in Vegas on the 5th just in case (found a good rate). Thanks for the ticket info!

    I called the casino & advised M supposed to be at the Hard Rock in Vegas on Dec 5 but they said as far as they know He is playing at their venue that night. They said they are busy with handling refunds for the Crosby show right now & to check back in a couple of days or so.

    I thought the Indio show was Friday the 4th. Bit odd that they'd mess up both the day of the week and the date if it is a mistake though.

    I just called the box office again & they said it was "confirmed" & "He'll be here on Dec 5th". They were pretty adamant about it too! They did confirm tix for "that" show do go on sale Oct 2.

    Sounds like someone from M's mgmt needs to call them to re-confirm the date.

    WTF??!! What a mess.

    I'm not going to this show (or Vegas) but am planning on seeing a couple shows and would like to know what the story is with the final dates, as I kinda like the dates posted on TTY for the following week!

    Obviously I haven't made any official arrangements yet but I have mentally planned out my trek!

    I don't mean to knock the indians, I'm just saying the gamblers make it smokey and gross. :thumbsdown:

    I've been on vacation so this is news to me. The best news ever. He'll be in my backyard. :love: It's a pretty shitty venue but I'll take what I can get. I'm going down in person to score my ticket.

    Apparently not. Did I just mention where I'll be at a specific time and date? Guess I got excited and a little ahead of myself. I said I'm going down in person to score my ticket, but I meant to say I'm going down on a person to score my ticket! I won't be anywhere near the ticket sales booth. Ever. Especially not the morning they go on sale. Nope. Not I.

    Just switched my Vegas reservation to the 4th. Glad it's still months away so there's suitable time to plan.

    It will be nice when the Hard Rock finally confirms it, though.

    Guess I should have called. I went online and it kicked me out of the system saying my security number was wrong so I had to start all over. SO frustrating!
