Oh, that problematic Morrissey….
Everyone’s favorite moody crush object from the 80s/90s is returning to Seattle later this year. Seattle Theatre Group just announced the morose one will be (hopefully) playing an October 1, 2019 gig at WaMu Theatre with opening act Interpol.
I say “Problematic” because Mr. Morrissey has said some things in recent years which have gotten him in trouble including supporting nationalistic British political groups…while also criticizing Donald Trump. The “Moz” has never been shy about making political statements over the years, zapping everyone from the Royal Family to Margaret Thatcher to New Labor.
And, the “Hopefully” is because Morrissey has missed shows in recent years due to a variety of excuses including his health and the health of his mum.
Regardless, we’ll always crush on the MUSIC and his delightfully calculated ambiguity.
AND, he sounds good on his new single, “Morning Starship”! The voice is still sounding strong!
