The post continued: “Capacity is 4,142. This will be the first airing of songs from ‘Bonfire Of Teenagers’ in Europe.”

Last month, Morrissey said that songs from his long-mooted fourteenth solo album ‘Bonfire Of Teenagers’ will be given their debut at a Las Vegas residency. A post on his website said: “The Morrissey concerts in Las Vegas in July will showcase songs from the album ‘Bonfire Of Teenagers’, which was recorded in January 2021.”

A statement from the former Smiths frontman himself added: “The thrill of this album was the speed under which it was recorded. Considering the knots of grief I had experience [sic] at the time, it made ‘Bonfire’ an incredible achievement for me.”

Morrissey will play a residency titled ‘Viva Moz Vegas’ at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on July 1, 2, 6, 7, and 9. For more info and tickets, click here.

It has been almost a year since he announced ‘Bonfire Of Teenagers’, his first since leaving his former label BMG. Last May, he said it would be “sold to the highest bidder,” however details of a label and firm release date are yet to emerge.
