Music icon Morrissey has let the cat out of the bag; the former frontman for The Smiths will be coming to Newcastle this year, playing at The Civic Theatre on October 31st.
In an article posted by Pitchfork yesterday, a list of dates confirmed by a Morrissey fan website revealed the artist’s plans for a world tour this year. The dates included several performances in the US, Asia, and Australia. Morrissey will be hitting up Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra, Wollongong, and Newcastle.
Today these shows have been 100% confirmed by Morrissey and his management. The notable exclusion of Sydney suggests that this may be an incomplete or incorrect list of tour dates (although Sydney did get exclusive Morrissey shows last year as part of VIVID).
The Civic Theatre better start phasing the meat out of their catering!
Stay tuned for ticket info, as tickets to his 2015 shows in Australia were awarded through a ballot process.
