The Los Angeles love affair with Morrissey continues. Due to popular demand, Morrissey has announced a final show of his arena headline run at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday, October 26th. Produced by Live Nation, this special show will be the Britpop icon’s last stop on a sprawling U.S. fall tour that will see Moz across both coasts. The show was announced this morning on KROQ and comes on the heels of Morrissey selling out the antepenultimate show of the tour at the FivePoint Amphitheatre in Irvine, California.
Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning this Friday, August 2nd at 10am local time at LiveNation.com. American Express® Card Members can also purchase tickets before the general public beginning Tuesday, July 30th at 10am local time through Thursday, August 1st at 10pm local time.
Touring in support of his latest LP, 60s/70s covers album California Son (Étienne Records/BMG), Morrissey will kick off the 7 week tour on September 5th in Maryland’s Merriweather Post Pavilion. The rock pioneer will be joined on the road by post-punk luminaries Interpol. California Son entered Billboard’s Vinyl Album Chart at #1 in May.
Morrissey’s “Smash Hit” Broadway Residency kicked off his 2019 campaign earlier this summer with a series of seven “instant sell-out” shows at Manhattan’s Lunt Fontaine Theatre. Critics worldwide raved about the run, which saw Moz draw material from throughout his remarkable repertoire of hits ranging from his storied early days with the Smiths to his acclaimed solo releases. Jon Pareles of The New York Times described his opening night performance as “ impeccably sung” and “as intimate as his songs themselves.”
Fans still remember Morrissey’s last Bowl appearances as two of his all-time best. Morrissey himself will find it hard to forget the 35,000 seat sell out for the launch of his Low in High School tour, which lead the Mayor of Los Angeles to officially proclaim November 10th as “Morrissey Day”.
