NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) Morrissey's current tour began 18 months ago in Tulsa, OK supporting his UK number 1 album "Ringleader Of The Tormentors." When 2006 was brought to a close with two sold out shows at Manchester's G Mex Arena ,the tour was 90 shows in and everyone assumed that was the end. 2007 has brought another 47 shows bringing the total so far to 137.The final 30 U.S. shows of the tour have been booked, and by the time it ends on November 4, Morrissey will have played 168 shows over 21 months.
The dates include extended runs in Los Angeles and New York. In Los Angeles, Morrissey will close a chapter in the famed Palladium’s history: these will be the final 10 shows at the legendary venue before it closes down for an extensive renovation. New York will feature five nights at Hammerstein Ballroom. A "seasons ticket" will be made available in both cities eliminating all surcharges for any fans attending every show, which will provide a savings of over $50 in itself.
Also, for the Palladium run, fans will have a special, limited-time opportunity to purchase tickets to all ten concerts for the price of nine, and to gain early entry into the venue for each show. In addition fans will also receive a special commemorative ticket that will allow them to go to the front of the line and get up close in this GA setting.
For the shows at Hammerstein Ballroom, a similar limited number offer applies. Fans planning to attend all five shows will receive a special package price of $200 thereby saving $125 off of the individual tickets, as well as a commemorative poster, and they will be allowed to go to the front of the line each night so they can be the first ones in the building and closest to the stage.
There will be no Smiths reunion tour. Per recent reports Morrissey was approached during the course of the summer by a consortium of promoter with a $75,000,000 offer to tour in 2008 and or 2009. The offer called for Morrissey to do a minimum of 50 shows all over the world under The Smiths' name with the only proviso being that Johnny Marr was also in the band. The offer has been refused.
