Morrissey has announced live dates for September.

He’ll play:

Hull, Hull Arena (September 18)
London, Eventim Hammersmith Apollo (September 20, 21)


Tickets go on sale on Friday, July 10, 2015.

Morrissey is currently on tour in north America.

He recently bemoaned the lack of label interest at his New York show at Madison Square Garden on Saturday June 27, 2015.


Writing on the quasi-official fansite, True To You, he described the New York show as “fantastic!… and … of course … zero label interest … a sad sign of the times”.

The show also garnered controversy by selling meat dishes at the show.

Morrissey reportedly claimed that the venue accepted his wishes for no meat to be served at his show, with Madison Square Garden duly delivering on their agreement by serving only veggie and vegan food to standard ticket holders.

However, as The Gothamist reports, corporate suite guests were exempt to such rules. An attendee named Jessica Pearson informed the publication that platters of chicken, meatballs and sushi were served to guests in the VIP boxes.

“This weekend I attended the Morrissey show at Madison Square Garden,” she said. “Moz proudly announced that it was a historic day as Madison Square Garden went fully Vegan. Turns out it was vegan everywhere BUT the corporate suites.”

Pearson continued to claim: “MSG offered up House Made Meatball Sliders, Hill Country Brisket Sandwiches, Cereal-Crusted Chicken Fingers, and Fresh Sushi Platters. Friends on the main floor ate vegan hot dogs. Thought you would find it amusing — though I’m sure Mr Morrissey will not.”

A statement from Madison Square Garden reads: “We changed the menu in the public areas for the show on Saturday night and didn’t make the same changes in the private areas. This was an oversight and will be fixed the next time.”
