Morrissey will be celebrating sunny days with a new compilation and UK tour. The former Smiths front-man, is to release a new compilation album (his eleventh in 21 years), soberly entitled, 'The Very Best of Morrissey', in April, which he will follow with a nine-date tour across the UK between 15th and 30th June. For this tour, Mozza has preferred a less predictable itinerary, choosing to visit his fans in Perth, Inverness, Dunoon, Dumferline, Hawick, Grimsby, York, Bradford and Plymouth. The likes of Flats, Mona and Gritpop newbies Brother will alternate as support acts throughout the tour.
Morrissey will also headline this year's Hop Farm on Saturday 2nd July - tickets for which are already on sale (£70 for day tickets).
Morrissey's last album of new material, 'Years of Refusal', was released in February 2009 and received much acclaim. Tickets for 'The Very Best of Morrissey' tour will go on sale Friday at 9am.
