Morrissey announces six-date UK tour

Singer-songwriter previously named London O2 Arena show his favourite of 2014

Morrissey is to play a six-date UK tour in March.

The short outing begins at Nottingham’s Capital FM Arena on March 13, taking in dates in Bournemouth, Cardiff, Leeds and Glasgow before wrapping up at Birmingham’s Barclaycard Arena on March 27.

Morrissey’s 2014 tour – which the singer described as “what I may risk calling our best tour ever” – included just one UK date, at London’s O2 Arena. The performer listed the London date as his favourite gig of the year in an end-of-tour message.

Tickets for Morrissey’s tour go on sale on Friday January 16 at 10am.

On Thursday, Morrissey zine True To You revealed what was reported to be scrapped sleeve art for a scrapped single, ‘The Bullfighter Dies’, which was to have a French version of ‘One Of Our Own’ on the B-side.

The post came days after Morrissey said he was “delighted” to see a bull gore a matador in Mexico City recently, adding that he was “sad the bull did not come away with [the matador’s] ear”.

Morrissey will play:

Nottingham Capital FM Arena (March 13)
Bournemouth International Centre (14)
Cardiff Motorpoint Arena (18)
Leeds First Direct Arena (20)
Glasgow SSE Hydro (21)
Birmingham Barclaycard Arena (27)
