This highly anticipated world tour follows the rumours back in January about upcoming Asian and Caribbean shows.
This solo tour is big news for Morrissey, as last year, the veteran singer was having trouble finding a record label. Morrissey even gave a statement to fan site True To You that his 2015 London’s Hammersmith Ballroom shows were “likely to be our final ever UK shows.”
Good thing they weren’t, eh?
