Morrissey to ‘branch out into new territory’ with 7-night Broadway residency in May

Morrissey today announced he’ll mount a seven-night residency on New York City’s famed Broadway this May, with his handlers promising fans will get a “rare opportunity to see the star branch out into new territory and take the stage like never before.”

The concerts, which will precede the release later in May of his new covers album California Son, are set for May 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 10 and 11 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theater in New York City.

Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. EST Friday via morrisseyofficial.com.

The singer’s publicist says Moz will be putting on a “retrospective show” that “promises an intimate yet exciting exploration of Morrissey’s expansive career from his early days to his upcoming new record California Son.” It’s not yet clear whether this will be a Springsteenesque mixture of story and song, or something more akin to a regular concert.

    Gross. I’d rather go back to eating meat.

  2. What’s the over/under on how many of these dates he’ll cancel? I’m gonna say four.

  3. How many nights, out of the seven night residency, do you think he’ll end up cancelling?

  4. Timm Davison

    How does Morrissey still have a fanbase?

  5. Maybe that’s part of the drama: tune in tomorrow to see if he will show up. Maybe he can hire an understudy. That doesn’t go over well in rock n roll though.

  6. Reading the above comments makes me feel like I’m sitting at the nerd table in high school. They hate each other. All they share in common is no one else will allow them to sit with them. Making the same lame jokes that no one has ever laughed at since ‘73 ( or ever)

  7. “There Is A Light That Never Turns On,” starring his ticket buyers.

  8. Monkedelic

    Rich A.
    Vegas currently has the over under at 2.5.

  9. If you buy seven tickets, you might be able to see one performance.

  10. Scott Stalcup

    But last night, the plans for a cancelled tour was all I saw on Channel 4.

  11. Just his clever way of finding a new venue to schedule, and then cancel with. The man is diabolical.

    I had him cancel on me in Atlanta and walk off the stage after a few songs in Boston. But I’d still love to see these shows. Though I have to say as much as I love Morrissey, the Johnny Marr show I saw in Athens GA topped all the Morrissey shows I’ve seen. That’s the concert you should really catch, and he starts the tour in a few months.

      So, you’re admitting you’d fall for bait-and-switch, 3 songs and that’s all you get to hear audience baiting? No performer who pisses on his fans like that is worth that kind of loyalty.

  13. He’s taking a lesson from Peter Murphy…schedule a residency, keep rescheduling it until the end of time.
