Morrissey: 40 Years of Morrissey
Morrissey’s influence and music legacy are irrefutable. Widely regarded as one of the most influential figures in British pop, as well as one of the greatest lyricists of his generation, Morrissey has 13 solo studio albums, a string of No. 1 records and an Ivor Nostello Award for Outstanding Contribution to British music.
As lead singer of The Smiths, he marked the history of music forever with only four albums. As a soloist, he has consolidated a sound that still reverberates today with his forthcoming album, “Without Music the World Dies” an explicit declaration of love for music, which has made him one of the most acclaimed voices of the last four decades. When the debut single from The Smiths, “Hand in Glove,” first emerged 40 years ago, the musical landscape was forever changed and launched a rich catalog of songs that includes anthems such as “This Charming Man,” “How Soon is Now?,” “There is a Light that Never Goes Out,” “Suedehead,” “Everyday is like Sunday,” “Irish Blood, English Heart,” “First of the Gang to Die,” and many more. This tour will be a celebration of songs that have resonated with fans worldwide for 40 years.
