Morrissey announces two London shows for August – ticket details

Ex-Smiths man will return to the UK capital in late summer

Morrissey has announced a pair of London shows for August.

The former singer of The Smiths will headline O2 Academy Brixton on August 7 before moving across town to the London Palladium on the following night, August 8.

Morrissey is currently nearing the end of an extensive UK tour, which has seen him perform high profile slots at Glastonbury and Hop Farm Festival as well as slew of dates in theatres around the country.

The singer is still currently searching for a record label to release his new studio album. Despite the follow-up to 2009’s ‘Years Of Refusal’ being complete and ready to release, Morrissey has said he is struggling to find a label to put it out for him.

He has said he has no interest in self-releasing the album as his “talents do not lie in DIY”.

Tickets go onsale on Friday (July 8) at 9am (BST). To check the availability of Morrissey tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
