Morrissey announces 17-date fall tour of southwestern U.S., Mexico

As promised, Morrissey today finally announced his much-anticipated fall tour of the U.S. and Mexico, a trek that — outside of an errant Chicago date that opens the run of shows — primarily hits the American southwest with 11 shows in November and early December that will be followed by six more concerts in four Mexican cities.

The tour, announced this morning via fansite/semi-officials news outlet True To You, opens Nov. 10 in Chicago, then runs through Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and California, closing the U.S. portion on Dec. 1 in Oakland. Those dates are then followed by the Mexican concerts, starting Dec. 5 in Monterrey and wrapping up Dec. 13 in Guadalajara (see dates below).

A previous announcement said that all tickets will go on sale Friday, Sept. 9.

The North American dates, which follow Moz’s extensive touring of the U.K. and Europe this summer, mark the former Smiths singer’s first American concerts since a pair of cancellation-prone visits in 2009. Although he has no record label, Morrissey has completed a new album and this summer debuted a number of new songs both on the BBC and in concert.

    So excited to see him. I feel for those cities he is passing over. He has been to Dallas quite a bit. That said, I am not missing this one. Great live show!!

     
  • Oh disappointment. Wouldn’t much call that a “tour of the US.” oh well, maybe he’ll hit up some place on the east coast next time.

    OMG! Have you seen the ridiculous ticket prices for this show? Cheapest is $170 EACH up to $240 EACH, and this is the venue’s price, not scalpers. No thank you. Maybe someone needs to tell old Moz we’re in a recession. Sorry mister, I’ll just crank up a CD and call it good. Too rich for my blood. Good luck selling those golden tickets.

     
  • Yeah…sorry, Moz isn’t worth that much.
