Each night on this tour will highlight the fan-favourite songs that made you cry and the songs that saved your life, spanning from the early days of The Smiths through to today.
His influence and music legacy are irrefutable. Morrissey has released thirteen solo studio albums, achieved a string of No.1 records, and been presented with an Ivor Nostello Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music.
As lead singer of The Smiths, he marked forever the history of music with only four albums. As a soloist he has consolidated a sound that still reverberates today with his forthcoming album Without Music The World Dies, an explicit declaration of love for music, which has made him one of the most acclaimed voices of the last four decades.
When the debut single from The Smiths, “Hand In Glove,” first emerged 40 years ago, the musical landscape was forever changed and launched a rich catalogue of songs that includes anthems such as “This Charming Man,” “How Soon Is Now?,” “There Is A Light That Never Goes Out,” “Suedehead,” “Everyday Is Like Sunday,” “Irish Blood, English Heart,” “First of the Gang to Die,” and many many more.
