UPDATE 02/08/16: Morrissey’s 2016 Australian tour has been confirmed. See updated tour details below.
Original Story: It appears The Smiths’ former frontman Morrissey has locked in at least five Australian headline shows for this October, after a reputable Morrissey fan site leaked what it believes to be the musician’s confirmed upcoming tour dates.
Morrissey fan zine True To You has published a list of forthcoming Morrissey dates across the United States, Asia and Australia, including shows in Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra, Wollongong and Newcastle.
The dates will likely see Moz showcase his extensive back-catalogue, as well as his latest solo album, 2014’s World Peace Is None of Your Business.
Moz last performed in Australia as part of Vivid LIVE 2015, where he played four headline shows at the Sydney Opera House, where he also reportedly banned all meat from backstage and from food and beverage bars around the Opera House Concert Hall (because Meat Is Murder) on the nights he was performing.
Previous to those Sydney shows Morrissey played dates in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney in December 2012.
