Morrissey’s recent tour has been filled with debuts, including a performance of the track ‘Bonfire of Teenagers’ back in July. He previously said the song was inspired by “England’s 9/11”, the Manchester Arena bombing. In May, he debuted the album single ‘I AM Veronica’ for the first time.
The former Smiths frontman’s UK and Ireland dates also saw him play ‘Please, Please, Please’ for the first time in nearly a decade. Watch him perform the track during his Gleneagle INEC Arena stop in Ireland earlier this month below.
It has been almost a year since Morrissey 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.View the rest of Morrissey’s UK tour dates and purchase tickets here.
