Morrissey on Broadway

There is a Light That Never Goes Out... at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre on Broadway! The iconic British alternative-rock artist Morrissey makes his Broadway debut tonight with a string of concerts which mark the Grammy Award nominee's first residency on the Great White Way. He currently has dates scheduled through to May 11.

This Broadway residency coincides with the upcoming release of Morrissey's next album, "California Son," set for a May 24 release date via Étienne Records/BMG. The concert series promises "an intimate yet exciting exploration of Morrissey’s expansive career from his early days to his upcoming new record "California Son": a collection of 1960/70s classic covers".

Fans can expect to witness Morrissey's takes on iconic songs from the likes of Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and Dionne Warwick, as well as his renditions of songs from lesser known artists of that era, including early gay icon Jobriath and political activist Phil Ochs, and even collaborations with alt-rock royalty such as Green Day's Billy Joe Armstrong, Grizzly Bear's Ed Droste, Young the Giant's Sameer Gadhia, and LP.
