Morrissey has announced his first live dates of 2017, including concerts in Mexico, a pair of festival performances and a trio of Texas concerts that were canceled twice late last year after his band’s keyboardist, Gustavo Manzur, fell ill prior to a show in Boulder, Colo.
The former Smiths frontman is slated to headline the Roxy Festival in Guadalajara, Mexico, on April 1 and the emo-heavy When We Were Young Fest in Santa Ana, Calif., on April 8.
He’s got three other Mexican shows booked in late March and early April, then it’s back to the U.S. for a theater date in Tucson, Ariz., plus the three Texas dates, according to a pair of itineraries posted to his quasi-official fansite, True To You over the last week.
Morrissey will play mid-April shows in San Antonio, Houston and Dallas, where he first postponed dates in late November then canceled them again after they were rescheduled for mid-December.
So far, though, Morrissey hasn’t announced plans to make up similarly twice-canceled dates in Detroit, Cleveland and Chicago, or the Boulder concert that wasn’t canceled until after the venue had filled with fans — and was not given an original make-up date, like the rest of the scrubbed shows last November.
Morrissey tour dates:
March 29: Teatro Banamex, Monterrey, Mexico
March 31: Sports Palace, Mexico City, Mexico
April 1: Roxy Festival, Guadalajara, Mexico
April 4: Auditorio Metropolitano, Puebla, Mexico
April 8: When We Were Young Fest, Santa Ana, CA
April 10: Fox Theatre, Tucson, AZ
April 12: Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, San Antonio, TX
April 14: White Oak Music Hall, Houston, TX
