Morrissey throws his arms around London for two special headline shows in August 2011!

Posted: 4th July 2011

After his recent concert triumphs at Glastonbury and the Hop Farm, many fans in the capital have been wondering when the ex-Smiths frontman might be heading to a venue near them. Wait no longer - he's just announced two new shows at the Brixton Academy on 7th August and the London Palladium on the 8th. Both shows will go on sale from Friday morning at 9am and will be his first major shows in London since the Ally Pally show in 2009.

As well as these new London shows, Morrissey is rounding off his current headlining tour with shows in Stoke (tomorrow night), Leeds (Thurs) and Middlesbrough (Fri), as well as two shows in Dublin on 29th and 30th July - all face value tickets are sold out, although there are a few rather expensive resale tickets from our trusted secure vendors.

Apart from potty-mouth teasing, aimed at one of his fan-sites (his band recently wore T-shirts with four-letter retorts), Morrissey has been pleasing his other faction of adoring fans with plenty of great shows and a new compilation which failed to set the world alight, critically. His upcoming autobiography might fare better (mooted for next year), as will his new material, some of which was recently aired on BBC Radio 2.
