Morrissey gets ready for UK homecoming

NME.COM will have all coverage from tonight’s Salford show

Morrissey is set to head home this evening (April 18) as he begins his UK tour in Greater Manchester.

The singer will kick off his biggest British tour in years at the Lowry in Salford – just a stone’s throw from where he was famously pictured with The Smiths outside Salford Lad’s Club – as he introduces audiences to chart-topping new album ‘Ringleader Of The Tormentors’.

Tickets for the massive tour sold out in record time back in January, but NME.COM will be on hand to provide an in-depth report from the show the moment Morrissey leaves the Lowry stage.
