Today, Morrissey announces a fall tour in major venues across the U.S. in support of his highly-anticipated forthcoming record of 60s/70s covers album, ‘California Son’. Kicking off on September 5th in Maryland’s Merriweather Post Pavilion and followed by a show at New York City’s Forest Hills Stadium, the Britpop icon will traverse The States coast to coast. The tour will end with a finale show at San Diego’s Pechanga Arena in his beloved California. He will be joined on the road by New York City post-punk luminaries Interpol. They will also make a stop at Five Point Amphitheatre on Saturday, October 5th. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 12 at 10am. Get ticket details HERE.
The news follows yesterday’s release of the first radio single off ‘California Son’, Morrissey’s tasteful rendition of The 5th Dimension’s hit “Wedding Bell Blues”, with guests Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day and Lydia Night of The Regrettes on backing vocals. Listen HERE.
