'Introducing Morrissey' from his 1995 'Vauxhall And I' tour will be released in September
Morrissey will release a new concert DVD in September.
Introducing Morrissey will be available from September 8, and will feature footage from his 1995 tour in support of ‘Vauxhall And I’.
It follows on from the recent 20th anniversary re-release of that fourth solo album, and will contain footage recorded over two nights at Sheffield’s City Hall and Blackpool’s Winter Gardens. The gigs took place on February 7 and 8.
The set features six songs from ‘Vauxhall And I’, including UK top 10 ‘The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get’, three from ‘Your Arsenal’, as well as non-album single ‘Boxers’ and B-side ‘Have-A-Go Merchant’. The fan-favourite ‘Jack The Ripper’ and a cover of Johnny Mercer and Henry Mancini’s ‘Moonriver’ also appear.
Morrissey will release his 10th solo album ‘World Peace Is None Of Your Business’ on July 15. It’s his first since 2009’s ‘Years Of Refusal’, and will feature the already released singles ‘World Peace Is None Of Your Business’, ‘Istanbul’, ‘Earth Is The Loneliest Planet’ and ‘The Bullfighter Dies’.
He recently cancelled a number of tour dates in the United States after being struck down with illness. The cancellation of a show in Atlanta, Georgia at the beginning of June marked the fourth time Morrissey has pulled out of a show in Atlanta since December 2012. He cancelled the first show after his mother fell ill and subsequently postponed the date twice in 2013 through his own ill health.
