Morrissey tour: Smiths legend annouces first UK tour for three years with shows in Glasgow, Leeds and London's Alexandra Palace
With his acerbic wit, mesmerising stage presence and outstanding songwriting abilities, Morrissey is one of the most celebrated and recognisable artists in music history. As frontman of The Smiths, he transformed popular music in the early-mid 1980s with his dark and tender lyrics, while as a solo artist he has endured for almost two decades.
A prolific writer, Morrissey penned the lyrics for some of the best known tracks of the 1980s (and perhaps of all time) – including "This Charming Man", "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" and "Meat Is Murder" – helping the band to sell four million records worldwide. As a group, The Smiths inspired a level of near religious devotion among their army of fans that few in musical history can claim to match, while as an individual Morrissey was the king of the outsiders as he crooned nostalgically about love, loss and endless disappointment.
In a career now spanning more than 30 years, Morrissey has released 15 albums – four with The Smiths and 11 solo albums – clocking up combined sales of over six million records. And he isn’t done there. After new record – Low in High School– was released in November last year, Morrissey will be back on tour in February and March 2018; his first UK tour for nearly three years.
Tickets for Morrissey's shows are always in high demand, with his feverish fan base always quick off the mark. Make sure you don’t miss your chance to catch a rock legend live, get your Morrissey tickets at StubHub now.
Morrissey: singer's legacy clear for all to see (and hear)
Born Steven Patrick Morrissey in 1959, Mozza has had a colossal impact on the world of music. He first made waves as the singer of The Smiths in the 1980s, with songs such as "Hand In Glove", "How Soon Is Now", and "Bigmouth Strikes Again" showcasing the singer's inimitable lyrical style – a magnificent blend of both the tragic and bleakly humorous.
The band split in 1987, but their former frontman has enjoyed a successful solo career ever since thanks to his enduring thirst for performing live and his incredibly dedicated and loyal fan base. Singles such as "Everyday is Like Sunday", "Irish Blood, English Heart" and "First Of The Gang To Die" are worthy additions to his substantial discography, and he remains a captivating and unique live performer whose charisma and charm are even clearer in person.
