Morrissey to release live DVD of Hollywood gig

Morrissey is set to release a new live DVD, according to reports.

As Pitchfork says, a report on Morrisey-solo.com - which was subsequently confirmed by a representative - reveals that the singer's March 2 concert at Hollywood High School in LA will be released on DVD by Eagle Vision.

You can see a clip from the show, in which Morrissey performs "The Boy With The Thorn In His Side", by clicking below.

The setlist for the show in question was as follows:

'Alma Matters'
'Ouija Board, Ouija Board'
'Irish Blood, English Heart'
'You Have Killed Me'
'November Spawned a Monster'
'Maladjusted'
'You’re The One for Me, Fatty'
'Still Ill'
'People Are the Same Everywhere'
'Speedway'
'That Joke Isn’t Funny Anymore'
'To Give (The Reason I Live)'
'Meat Is Murder'
'Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want'
'Action Is My Middle Name'
'Everyday Is Like Sunday'
'I’m Throwing My Arms Around Paris'
'Let Me Kiss You'
'The Boy With The Thorn In His Side'

Morrissey recently cancelled the remaining dates on his US tour and cited "medical mishaps" as the reason behind the scrapped dates. He has been suffering from mounting health issues over the past few months, including Barrett's esophagus, a bleeding ulcer and double pneumonia.

The singer's publicist, Lauren Papapietro, said in a statement: "Despite his best efforts to try to continue touring, Morrissey has to take a hiatus and will not be able to continue on the rest of the tour. Morrissey thanks all of his fans for their well wishes and thoughts."

Earlier this month, meanwhile, the singer said he had been "cautioned" to retire from music due to his recent health troubles, but said leaving his career behind would be "difficult for me because it's very ingrained in me." He released his most recent album, Years Of Refusal, in 2009.

Such has been the drooling media focus on Kate Bush this week, it might be tough to imagine British music journalists listening to anything else these past few days. I'm not, in fairness, exempt from the hysteria: here's...
