Stop the presses, because Morrissey has just announced a full United States tour. That’s right, following a year of ailments and cancelled tour stops, the Moz has revealed that he will be taking the US by storm in different sized venue. If that leaves you a little intrigued, it means that the former-Smiths frontman will be performing in some big named cities such as New York City, Los Angeles and Miami while also giving those in little cities such as Flint, MI and Lewiston, NY a little bit of love.
The singer will begin his trek in the states on May 7 in San Jose at the National Civic Auditorium and will go throughout the country eventually ending on June 21 in New York’s Barclays Center.
The tour dates which are posted below we posted onto the Morrissey fanzine, True to You, but an official statement on the matter will be done tomorrow. For two of the shows, Moz will have guests lined up to open for him: Tom Jones in Los Angeles and Cliff Richard in Brooklyn.
