Morrissey has announced details of his only UK show to take place in Manchester this July.

The former Smiths frontman will play a one-off gig at Manchester Arena on July 28. The date will be his first show in his hometown since playing the 02 Apollo Manchester in May 2009.

The singer is still searching for a record label to release his new studio album, which, despite being complete and ready to go, is still without a release date. He released his last studio album, 'Years Of Refusal', in 2009, while the compilation LP 'Very Best Of Morrissey' was put out in April 2011.

Last October, Morrissey criticised the way information is presented by the modern media, saying that he believes we "live in very dumbed-down times".

He said: "Everything - news media, music, music magazines - are presented with the assumption that the people as a whole are utterly thick." He also accused the media of labeling him as 'mad Morrissey' so they could avoid actually dealing with the content of the comments he makes.

Tickets for the show go on sale on Friday April 27 at 9am. To check the availability of Morrissey tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS, or call 0871 230 1094.
