The star announces a residency at the legendary New York venue...

For the first time in four years, Morrissey returns to NEW YORK in May to play five dates at the famous APOLLO THEATRE in HARLEM.

The former Smiths frontman follows up on his five-date stint at the Wiltern Theatre in his hometown Los Angeles with shows on May 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8.

As previously reported, Morrissey already sold out the Los Angeles shows and, given the rarity of which he appears on the East Coast, demand should be just as high for the Apollo shows.

The reclusive legend, whose last New York show was at the 3,000-capacity Roseland Ballroom in 2000, gets more intimate this time around at the 1,500-person Apollo to promote the May 17 release of his new album ’You Are The Quarry’.
