Morrissey Broadway residency box office - Forbes, Playbill

Morrissey Follows Springsteen To Broadway Box Office Lucre - Forbes

Excerpt:

With Bruce Springsteen's record-breaking Rialto residence as a template, recording artist Morrissey made his Broadway debut last week - and earned more money than almost any traditional musical on the docket.

Over seven performances, the English singer-songwriter grossed a whopping $1.88 million, with the average seat going for $186 a pop. The only shows on Broadway to rake in more were Hamilton ($3.13m) and The Lion King ($2.04m).

The stint, titled simply Morrissey, wasn't technically a song-and-dance musical. It was more of a straight concert in the vein of the singer's 40-year touring career, transplanted to Broadway's intimate Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. The gig is the first in a series called In Residence On Broadway, each featuring a different artist in the 1,500-seat house, produced by LiveNation, EBG, and The Araca Group.

The venture follows in the footsteps of Springsteen's sold-out Broadway bow, which grossed $113 million over 14 months. Seats for that show, which was a bit more fleshed-out than a pure concert, went for over $500 each, with prices on the secondary market leaping to $40,000 (!) during the final week.

“The well-reviewed Morrissey, though not officially a part of the Lunt-Fontanne’s upcoming In Residence On Broadway series, suggests producers might be on to something with the idea – at least with performers backed by a fan base as loyal as the one that’s stuck with Morrissey all these years. Attendance for the seven performances – which spanned two Broadway weeks – was 10,085, about 96% of capacity. Average ticket price was $187.”

Rubbish.

How, exactly, will a single animal be saved by Morrissey’s appropriation of their plight - for his own personal gain? Please, do tell! A single example will do just nicely, thank you.

...and the f***ing goof won’t even make good on 30 year old, court ordered payments. He fled from his own native country to avoid paying obvious debts to those who helped to make him what he was.

THIS is who he is now and always has been. A fake-ass, narcissistic clown.

All the hypocrites, slags and ball-washers who attended these shows did was buy the bullshit, dole out their allowance and pay Morrissey’s overdue tax bill.
Also keep the rat skunk in cashmere cardigans.

Will he sing ' Interesting drug ' with any conviction in 2019? Of course not. His life is solely about his own stardom and promoting the utterly shameless sham he is today. Un blinkerd eyes can see straight through him.

It's about the creative life and he is certainly living his. Nothing to be jealous about, we all have the capacity to be successful creators when we focus on it, instead of comparing with others. Good luck to Morrissey.

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

I will say this one more time (and it's just my own way of looking at things musically) Here goes: If a performer/artist is extraordinary in his or her talent and I get enthralled by his/her music , I DON'T GIVE A f*** about all the extraneous stuff...their politics, lifestyle, if they're a nice person or a scumbag. I am there to be entertained. All i really care about is (like in Moz's case).....1)Does he write great songs? YES 2)) Does he have a great singing voice? YES
3) He he a great live performer? YES
4) Am i taken to a different, beautiful world when I listen to his albums? YES

Pardon my next cursing, but....I couldn't give a f*** about all the "other" shit. Thank u and peace out, y'all



YES.
