British singer-songwriter Morrissey’s brand-new UK and Ireland tour – full details and dates below – follows his lauded European tour last month including a sold-out show at London’s Eventim Apollo.
Indie icon Morrissey is best known for his unique baritone voice and his song lyrics that are characterised by self-deprecating humour and a dark tone. His music frequently explores themes of sexual desire, emotional detachment, and a rejection of mainstream values and societal norms.
Morrissey has enjoyed 16 albums in the UK Top Ten, plus nine Top Ten albums with his former group The Smiths, of which Morrissey was a founder member.
He was the singer and lyricist of The Smiths for six years and has been a successful solo artist for 36 years. In 1994 his album, Your Arsenal, was Grammy nominated.
The UK chart-topper celebrated a number three hit with his latest and thirteenth solo studio album I Am Not a Dog on a Chain in 2020. It was his first album of original material since 2017's Low in High School.
In the US, Morrissey has had two Top Ten albums and eight Top 20 albums.
Morrissey broke The Beatles record for selling out the Hollywood Bowl in 1991 and more recently he was named the second Greatest Living British Icon, as voted by viewers of BBC Television – with Sir David Attenborough first and Sir Paul McCartney third.
Born in Manchester, of Irish parents and Dublin lineage, he was voted The Greatest Northern Male in a nationwide newspaper poll.
His global fame saw him awarded the Keys to the City of Tel Aviv, in 2012.
The following year Penguin Classics published his book Morrissey Autobiography, which became the second fastest selling autobiography in British history. It spent six weeks at number one, five weeks at number two, four weeks at number three, and is a continuing British Best Seller.
Morrissey's songs have been covered by David Bowie, Nancy Sinatra, the Killers, Marianne Faithfull, Chrissie Hynde, My Chemical Romance, Thelma Houston, Christy Moore, amongst many others.
