Morrissey announces firstAustralian dates in a decade

Attention Morrissey fans: cheer up you miserable bastards your god is returning for a tour in December.

The former Smiths frontman, outspoken vegan and star of the world’s best tumblr of cat related artist promo shots, has announced his first Australian dates in a decade. The Moz was last seen in Australia on the lineup for the Livid festival way back in 2002, Morrissey has teased us with rumours of a return visits in 2005 and 2009 but this time he’s really coming.

Since that visit in 2002, Moz has kept his fans happily depressed with the release of three new albums – You Are the Quarry, Ringleader of the Tormentors and Years of Refusal – but he’ll also play a selection of Smiths tunes (and maybe even a Frankie Valli cover) in the set.

Support at all shows comes from American singer/songwriter Kristeen Young.

Saturday, December 15 – Vector Arena, Auckland ($101.68)

Wednesday, December 19 – Festival Hall, Melbourne ($101.05)
Friday, December 21 – Enmore Theatre, Sydney ($108.90)

That cat picture is the best thing he's done since The Smiths.

Will need to check out his solo stuff now... that's a bit steep

So which would be better, Enmore or the Opera house?

For anyone interested, I will be doing a $2 sausage sizzle at the opera house steps!

gumbuoy

gumbuoy said on the 13th Sep, 2012



Surely, if you have to travel, you might as well go the whole hog and go to the Opera House show. Plus, free sausage!

Stefan Beck

Stefan Beck said on the 13th Sep, 2012

Sound logic but I've been to the Opera House a few times, I should broaden my horizons.

gumbuoy

gumbuoy said on the 13th Sep, 2012

Sure, sure, but how about this...you broaden your horizons on some band that ISNT big enough to play the Opera House, and for Morrissey you go to the Opera House?

Holy shit that's steep.

And only a month or so before that miserable sod from The Smiths!

Has Quicky gone into hiding since those remarks? Swear I haven't seen him posting.

shazie

shazie said on the 14th Sep, 2012

Thatdude did go pretty overboard with it, but I reckon he's probably studying for HSC trials (are they on at the moment?) or something like that.

Stefan Beck

Stefan Beck said on the 14th Sep, 2012

Quicky is actually in hospital.

He had a beer two weeks ago and the alcohol is still in his system.

oldgregg

oldgregg said on the 14th Sep, 2012

his mother and I have discussed it, we're going to pull the plug*


*have sex

berlinchair101

berlinchair101 said on the 14th Sep, 2012

Poor Quicky. Maybe he has embraced his role as SlowerQuickier and gone into exile, only to appear sporadically with 900 word reviews of post-dubstep wank.

monokhrome_nite

monokhrome_nite said on the 14th Sep, 2012

I'm confused. What did Quicky do?

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 14th Sep, 2012

Maybe I shouldn't get the instrumental of "Stan" and rap from the perspective of Quicky writing emails to Lukey?

Napoleon Solo

Napoleon Solo said on the 14th Sep, 2012



Something that deserves to be drawn out ad nauseam...

jacegalvin

jacegalvin said on the 14th Sep, 2012



Recently:

Said something about not wanting to drink beer at a show because he had some exam a couple of days after it and didn't want the alcohol to stay in his system.

And thought David Byrne was Morrisssey.

edit: Here's the quote:

You just spelt Morrissey exactly the way I like to pronounce it.

The Great Monkey War

The Great Monkey War said on the 14th Sep, 2012



I was attempting a continuation of ThatDude's joke (which is why I said 'only a month or so before that miserable sod from The Smiths').

But I realise now that it was a bit lame.

Huh?

Anyway - both Sydney gigs sold out. Sydney is now officially the most miserable city in Australia.

New tickets available for tomorrow night!

Anyone going tonight/tomorrow? Who's already been?

I would go but I haven't got a stitch to wear

daveyac8881

daveyac8881 said on the 21st Dec, 2012

I was going to like that until I realised you stuffed up the lyric, for shame

larrybird

larrybird said on the 21st Dec, 2012

I knowingly edited it to the situation. If mr morning had asked only about 'tonight' and not 'tomorrow' as well,I would have gone with teh actual lyric of:
I would go out tonight, but I haven't got a stitch to wear

lineofbestfit said on the 22nd Dec, 2012

it's as much for one washed up git than it is for laneway, yeah nah. what did quicky say his comment isn't on here.

berlinchair101

berlinchair101 said on the 22nd Dec, 2012

I'm not a fan of Morrissey solo by any means, but I think calling him washed up is stretch. From what I understand his records are still doing well critically and his performances these last weeks were great.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 22nd Dec, 2012

Those 2 shows fucking SLAYED.

larrybird

larrybird said on the 22nd Dec, 2012

Did he play 'don't make fun of daddy's voice'?

lineofbestfit

lineofbestfit said on the 23rd Dec, 2012

marr>morrisey but that's due to modest mouse, that record is better than anything the smiths did.

larrybird

larrybird said on the 23rd Dec, 2012

some of his best work is found on the the's dusk

shazie

shazie said on the 23rd Dec, 2012

I hope Johnny does a solo tour after he releases his album next year, would be amazing to see him again.
