‘It could have sold out five times over’ - When Morrissey came to Great Yarmouth
By Dave Hannant - March 31, 2020.
"Keegan Snell, manager of the venue, said: “It really came out of the blue - his management got in touch with us to see if we wanted to put it on and I was shocked, but of course we wanted to.
“Demand for tickets was mental - when they went on sale we had five people manning the phones in the box office and it was non-stop. We sold about 1,200 tickets in an hour - it was incredible. We probably could have sold the show out five times over.”"
Given that Morrissey once penned a song specifically about loathing seaside towns, you wouldn’t expect to find him playing in Great Yarmouth.
