I was waiting for the first person to raise that speculation.
It's a possibility, the final chapter in his autobiography etc. I think it unlikely, there are no particular signs, but until he announces a date beyond July we can't really argue
I don't really understand this view at all. Morrissey has been touring and/or releasing albums almost every year since the 2004. We know he has demo'd an album's worth of songs (and previewed 5 of them live). Why on earth might the announcement of a one-off concert in Manchester (at a venue he's played before) mean this is the end of his career?
Also, as I think others have mentioned, it's extremely unlikely that this genuinely is the only UK date of the year. He said the same thing early last year on announcing the first few Scottish shows, before adding tons more dates.
Is it only me who is not really that bothered? I saw pretty much this exact touring set in Bradford last year and not a lot has changed. I have been to every single UK tour since Moz went solo, never saw the smiths as I was too young, but for some reason this announcement didnt excite me. It barely registered with me to be honest. I never thought I would feel this way.
Do you think it will sell out in only 5 minutes?
This IS the only UK date of the year
Seeing Morrissey in Manchester is on my bucket list. Completely missed The Smiths, and previous Morrissey shows due to dreadful life choices. Better late than never.
I've been checking out the Man. Arena sitting plan - does anyone have an idea what stage plan will be used? Any recommendations on ideal seating for the concert?
