Tickets for the festival, which is organised by Coachella promoters Goldenvoice, go on sale at midday Los Angeles time on Friday (February 14), with prices starting at $135. A payment plan also available.
Morrissey’s headline performance at Cruel World will follow the release of his 13th solo album ‘I Am Not A Dog On A Chain’, which is due out on March 20.
The former Smiths frontman also made headlines by wearing a cut-off t-shirt emblazoned with the words ‘FUCK THE GUARDIAN’ at his Hollywood Bowl show in LA. The singer has come to blows with the media in recent years over coverage of his support of the controversial far-right group, For Britain. Morrissey has denied accusations of racism.
