Morrissey today announced an eight-date tour of Canada this April, abandoning without explanation his decision 15 years ago to boycott the nation until its annual seal hunt is banned. That hasn’t happened, but Moz nevertheless will return to the Great White North, and part of the tour’s proceeds will go toward animal welfare charities across Canada.
The tour opens April 15 in Vancouver and wraps up April 29 in Montreal, and in addition to shows in Toronto, will stop in Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon and Winnipeg.
Tickets are on sale 10 a.m. Friday local time.
See full dates below.
