Morrissey is definitely coming to Singapore

After hearing a lot of talk about Morrissey planning a Southeast Asia tour, it’s finally confirmed that the former Smiths frontman will be back in Singapore in October.

He played a bunch of his solo work as well as some hits from The Smiths’ repertoire at his sold out show back in 2012 at Fort Canning Park, which was voted as the “Best Concert of the Year” by the Straits Times. We won’t be expecting anything less when he takes the stage at Marina Barrage come Oct 15 (fingers crossed we get to weep over “Everyday is Like Sunday” and “You Have Killed Me”).

If you’re planning to pretend you’ve been a fan all along, here’s the short version: though they were only together for five years, The Smiths were critical to British independent music scene of the 80s, with 15 studio, live and compilation albums. But once they disbanded, Morrissey’s solo career flowered further, with 49 lyrical, mostly gloomy singles and 12 solo top-ten albums. His latest release, World Peace Is None Of Your Business, became one of the most critically acclaimed records of 2014.

Early bird pre-sale tickets are $98 a pop, and will go on sale on Aug 5, 10am at LAMC Productions’ website. Standard tickets ($108) will be released on Aug 15, 9am through Sistic.
