Morrissey has revealed a full U.S. tour in support of his new studio album Low in High School (out November 17 on Etienne/BMG). Backed by his full live band, each performance promises to be an intimate evening with Morrissey where he will perform many of his most well known fan favorites as well as new material from Low in High School, including lead single “Spent The Day In Bed.” Additionally, on October 20th, a special five LP box set deluxe version of The Smiths’ The Queen is Dead will be released to celebrate what is perhaps the band’s most iconic album.
The full itinerary is enclosed and on Morrissey’s official Facebook page.
Earlier this month, Morrissey made national headlines surrounding the announcement that he will be making his long-awaited return to the Hollywood Bowl on Friday, November 10. The show sold out almost instantly on the first day of the on-sale, and a second date on Saturday, November 11 has been added. Billy Idol will be the special guest at both engagements.Tickets are on sale now for the Saturday show.
“Spent The Day In Bed” has been called an “ode to self-care” by The AV Club and has received plaudits from Rolling Stone, NPR Music, and Billboard, while Stereogum lauded its “slickly theatrical” imagery. You can listen to the official audio below. CLICK HERE to pre-order Low in High School.
Recognized as one of the most influential artists of all time, Morrissey is widely credited as a seminal figure in the emergence of indie rock and Britpop, and his music acts as a rite of passage for all who discover alternative music. His lyrics, at times blunt and fearless, other times vulnerable and poignant, continue to resonate with listeners around the world with their unmatched emotional depth and theatrical, poetic delivery. After The Smiths, Morrissey achieved greater success as a prolific solo artist. All 10 of his solo albums have entered the Top 10 on the UK album charts, including three entries at No. 1. In 2013, Morrissey published his record-breaking autobiography on Penguin Classics, immediately topping the best-seller list with literary reviewers hailing it a masterpiece in writing and prose. Pitchfork called him “one of the most singular figures in Western popular culture,” and the UK’s Independent declared, “Most pop stars have to be dead before they reach the iconic status he has reached in his lifetime.”
