Morrissey has unveiled plans for a six-week fall North American tour, which includes multiple-night stands in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York. The outing begins Sept. 20 in Tijuana, Mexico, and wraps Nov. 2 in Washington, D.C. Kristeen Young will support.
The trek will touch down for four nights at San Francisco’s Fillmore (Sept. 23-24, 26-27), a whopping 10-show run at Los Angeles’ Palladium (Oct. 1-2, 4-6, 8-9, 11-13) and five gigs at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom (Oct. 22-23, 26-28).
Morrissey was forced to postpone a handful of summer dates in the U.S., including at New York’s Madison Square Garden, after contracting a serious viral infection.
In related news, former Smith guitarist Johnny Marr recently told the U.K.’s the Word magazine that he and Morrissey plan to collaborate on a long-in-the-works Smiths boxed set with Warner Bros. U.K. According to the report, the project should be out within 18 months.
