Morrissey Band’s Boz Boorer Enters The Fray, Releases Video With Eddie Argos

One thing about the members of Morrissey’s backing band: They are loyal. Recently, Morrissey cancelled an entire tour, blaming opening act Kristeen Young for spreading illness to the entire touring party. Young expressed befuddlement, claiming that she was only having an allergic reaction, and the veteran record producer Tony Visconti, who has worked with both… More »

Morrissey – “The Bullfighter Dies”

Morrissey may have called off the remainder of his North American tour, but he did play enough shows to debut a few of the songs from his new album World Peace Is None Of Your Business, and one of those songs was “The Bullfighter Dies,” in which a matador is gored to death and everyone… More »

Morrissey’s Guitarist Blasts Kristeen Young, Tony Visconti In Wake Of Tour Cancellation

It wasn’t especially surprising when Morrissey canceled all of his remaining North American tour dates last week; it’s the sort of thing Morrissey does. But it was a bit surprising when he blamed opening act Kristeen Young for the entire debacle, claiming that she kept performing with a cold, refused to sit any dates out,… More »

Still Ill: Morrissey Cancels Tour, Blames Opening Act

Morrissey has been canceling shows one after another lately, which unfortunately is nothing new for Moz. Now it looks like his entire North American tour is off thanks to health complications. In a Facebook post, a spokesperson for Morrissey shared the following message:… More »

Morrissey Postpones Two More Shows

You’d never guess this could happen, but Morrissey’s current tour is facing some complications. Thanks to an unspecified virus, Moz has already been forced to cancel two shows, in Atlanta and Atlantic City, and now he’s postponed two more. Moz was set to play Baltimore’s Meyerhoff Symphony Hall tonight and Washington, D.C.’s Lincoln Theater tomorrow… More »

Watch Morrissey Debut “Kick The Bride Down The Aisle”

The early returns on Morrissey’s current tour have been inauspicious, but even if Moz doesn’t manage to make his way to your city, he is out there, and even though he might not seem like the most reliable guy right now, his new album is coming out. Confirmation of both came last night at Bosto… More »

Morrissey Cancels Yet Another Show, Parts Ways With Opener Kristeen Young

It’s a gamble buying tickets to see Morrissey this year because you’re never quite sure if the show will actually happen. Last year Moz had to cancel numerous performances due to health issues before eventually canceling his entire tour. Now, after canceling his Atlanta show, things seem to be repeating themselves. Moz just canceled hi… More »

Morrissey Cancels Atlanta Concert For The Fourth Time In 18 Months

The touring gods, it would seem, do not want Morrissey to play Atlanta, ever. Tonight, Moz was scheduled for a show at the ATL’s Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center, a long-awaited make-up date for the three Atlanta shows he’s canceled in the past year and a half. It won’t happen. As Access Atlanta reports, Morrissey… More »

Morrissey – “Earth Is The Loneliest Planet”

Yesterday, Morrissey gave us the spoken-word video for “Earth Is The Loneliest Planet” — which included a guest appearance from Pamela Anderson — and today, we’ve got the full track. “Earth” is the third single to premiere off Moz’s forthcoming LP World Peace Is None Of Your Business, following the title track and “Istanbul,” and… More »

Morrissey – “Earth Is The Loneliest Planet” Video (Feat. Pamela Anderson)

The Borat Movie can no longer claim the “randomest Pamela Anderson cameo” crown. Lately, Morrissey has been releasing short spoken-word videos for songs from his grand-return album World Peace Is None Of Your Business. We’ve seen him plaintively reciting his lyrics for the album’s title track, for “The Bullfighter Dies,” and for “Istanbul.” And i… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial beginning of summer, but the songs we’ve chosen to send you into the holiday weekend are uniformly dark and despairing. Strand Of Oaks and DJ Dodger Stadium turned deeply personal strokes of melancholy into two very different sorts of anthems. Tombs and Mirel Wagner evoked two distinct breeds of… More »

Morrissey – “Istanbul”

“Istanbul” was one of the World Peace Is None Of Your Business songs Morrissey reinterpreted as spoken word last week. Now the actual song is here, and it’s tremendous — a typically suave rocker powered by unexpectedly feral guitar riffs and groovy percussion. Listen below via Spotify. More »

Watch The Sad, Animated Video PETA Made For Morrissey

Morrissey has never been shy about any of his views, but he’s been an especially vocal advocate of animal rights over the past 30 years. The latest manifestation of this crusade is a PETA-produced animated video to be aired during Morrissey’s upcoming tour dates. As explained on YouTube, “The video takes viewers on a harrowing… More »

Morrissey – “The Bullfighter Dies” & “Instanbul” Spoken Word Videos

Last week, Morrissey debuted a curious video for “World Peace Is None Of Your Business,” the title track from his much-awaited new album. Rather than being a proper music video, it was Moz, resplendent in a tuxedo, reciting the song’s lyrics over tinkly jazz. Today, he’s got another one, for another of the songs he… More »

Morrissey Is Not On Twitter Says Morrissey

Two days ago the world rejoiced because Morrissey had apparently joined Twitter. Not so, explains Morrissey. In a post on the fan site True To You, despite bearing the trusted verification checkmark, the @itsmorrissey is “bogus.” Let’s turn it over to Moz:… More »

Morrissey Joins Twitter

Look out, world: Morrissey is on Twitter. Moz has been represented by a proxy at @itsmorrissey since June 2009, but as of today that account seems to have been taken over by the man himself. He began his Twitter adventure in typically Morrissey fashion:… More »

Morrissey – “World Peace Is None Of Your Business” Video

Morrissey is finally set to release his new album World Peace Is None Of Your Business this summer, and he debuted the title track onstage in San Jose last week. Today, he’s got a new video, but it’s not quite a music video and not quite a teaser. In the clip, he wears a tuxedo… More »

Morrissey Tried To Shut Down Last Night’s We Are Scientists/PAWS Show

Morrissey is only a couple of dates into his current North American tour, and there’s already been plenty of drama surrounding the trek. At opening night in San Jose, he had to cut his show off early after fans mobbed him onstage. And before last night’s show at the Observatory in Orange County, he incurred… More »

Check Out The Smiths’ ’86 USA Tour Rider

When the Smiths were touring behind The Queen Is Dead in 1986, they were fueled largely by cheese sandwiches and booze. (Also, some of them ate tuna, which seems at least a little bit murderous.) So explains the US tour rider that appeared on Twitter yesterday. Check out all the exceedingly reasonable requests below. More »

Watch Morrissey Get Mobbed By Fans, Debut Three Songs In San Jose

One of the old visual trademarks of a Morrissey show is that fans will rush onstage to hug him and he will go on singing, ignoring them, an apt visual metaphor for the way he’s conducted much of his career. But last night, it seems, some fans took it a bit far. Morrissey opened a… More »
