These new tour dates follow the critically acclaimed performances of Morrissey’s recent U.S. Tour in Autumn of 2019 with special guests Interpol.The 30 date tour drew large crowds and received rave reviews across the country.

This new limited run of shows, set to kick off the launch of the ‘I Am Not A Dog On A Chain’ album, promise to be not-to-be missed affairs if reaction to Morrissey’s 2019 U.S. dates is any indication. Press who covered the U.S. Autumn tour raved about the powerful performances as some of Morrissey’s best ever, while continually commenting on the strength of his “ageless” vocals.

Great to see him coming to the UK
BUT what awful venues.
If he stuck to small theatre-like venues,he could have been on to a winner.

I think what's surprised me, & possibly others, is the sheer pace of things that seems to have gathered in recent weeks.
We had the debacle about It's Over & all that confusion; is it, isn't it coming out, where/when/wtf, etc.
Then we had BDYTTK dropped, which is a superb track.
Then all the merch seemed to have arrived, along with all the marketing/promo/pre-order malarkey for IANADOAC...out 20 March.
And now Tour dates!..which are (if 6th March is firm) actually only something like 7 weeks away!
Have BMG had a rocket up the arse, or something? All seems very rapid.

His last UK tour was a huge success too, with 22,000 tickets sold in London alone. So I expect these to sell out soon, too.
The Paris and Cologne ones are smaller sized venues, so they will sell out soon, too.

Technically that was his last fulfilled UK tour Thewlis but lets not forget the tour he postponed due to poor sales. Hopefully with only 2 dates, they should sell ok.

True, but they were ill-planned, just a few months after his arena-tour and without a new release to tour with. So I think it was wise to cancel.
This time, just prior to a proper new album release the excitement will be at a peak and I think these four dates should sell out soon.
Then I think a full tour, with probably and hopefully some smaller sized venues as well, will follow soon.

At least 2 of the band have events booked in the first 4 months of the year already - which may have some bearing on dates and brevity of this 'tour'.

FWD.

I straighten up, and my position is one of hope.

Ever the wet blanket. Let the fans enjoy these news, even if it’s not for you. Nothing Thewlis said was wrong or incorrect, so why feel the need to be this anal and petty?

Plus he doesn't have the fanbase to fill these huge atmosphere-free enormodomes in the UK anymore anyway, so they'll either be cancelled like last time, or be half empty. You'll be better off getting tickets for the French shows, and popping over the Channel. I'm done with Morrissey in the UK until he starts playing decent venues again.

I’ve just informed the undercover agents at The Guardian about these UK dates.
“Don’t worry sir it’s all in hand” was the reply.

So all in all when these dates get cancelled it’s all down to The Guardian newspaper.

Well this great news for my Moz fans in England that have been waiting patiently.
So it looks as if these dates are before lp release, and we only have 1 great song to go by, hopefully more will leak out before then, Cant wait to see the playlist for these shows and coverage
which I know will be great because FWD will be there and he never ceases to amaze us with his info(thank goodness) and I know these tickets will go fast ....if you snooze you will lose. Way to go MOZ for Europe
