Well yeah some like united like there are who are outside Manchester, but most are Man City fans than united in Manchester...brilliant. maybe he felt sorry for City, since they just lost the league title yesterday. I mean do people in manchester really like united? i just see a bunch of dumb americans and out of towners
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've seen him over the last decade a few times and love the guy, but his setlist is fairly static these days. I'm not a hater so don't bombard me with 'WAAAH IF YOU DON'T LIKE HIM DON'T GO'! I do like him. I just like a bit of variation. I'd go in a second if he announced a curve ball - like in support of the Viva Hate reissue he was going to perform that in full, coupled with the usual numbers he likes. Or Vauxhall. A Strangeways night! Or even numbers from Quarry, Ringleader or Years that don't get an airing. Something different. A Marr included one night only affair. An acoustic night. Anything
I love the man but I think we all now even now pretty much what 15 - 17 of the tracklisting will be. I'm not really interested in laying down £40 to go and hear First of the bleeding Gang once more. The M.E.N night on his birthday in 2004 ish, I was at that and that was excellent so the venue itself isn't really an issue although agreed the Apollo would be better. The best gigs I've seen him at was in Birmingham in 2002 ish and an impromptu gig in New York when I just happened to be on holiday there around 2007. Seriously the Brum gig - excellent EXCELLENT night and my first Moz gig after getting into the Smiths around 2000. He shook my hand and it was truely special and I'm not typically starstruck.
Anyway I digress. May pony up for a ticket - the aftershows in Manc are usually worth it alone with the people you meet.

Morrissey...Eastern US beckons...There are more vegetarians in New York City than any other in the Western World, and we do not kill baby seals here, either. I propose a date at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. A gorgeous hall, fit for our man. What's the hang up? Ticketing? Rents on venues too high? The ongoing struggle to get proper "representation"? Record deal? Then what!?!?!? I NEED MORRISSEY CLOSE TO HOME. Pleeeeaaaaasssseeee?!? You cannot possible ignore us here while you make dates elsewhere. Tell me those gigs out West and that odd date in Chicago were not all we are going to get stateside.
Good luck on Manchester. Travelled from NYC to Manchester to see Morrissey play the MOVE Festival in 2004. Made the pilgrimage by myself. Was a truly religious experience. Good for you lot over there. Now, please come and pay us a visit over here.
