Iconic British performer Morrissey will play four nights at the Sydney Opera House as part of the 2015 Vivid LIVE program.
The former Smiths singer and master of quiffery released his tenth solo album last year, entitled World Peace Is None Of Your Business. He’s the first act announced on this year’s Vivid LIVE lineup, joining a list of prominent contemporary artists who’ve played at the Opera House like Kraftwerk and fellow purveyors of gloom The Cure.
For a run of gigs sure to attract attention from fans in Australia and overseas, the famously vegan Morrissey has insisted that catering venues inside the Opera House not be allowed to serve meat. Hopefully there won’t be a repeat of the fan in 1985 who reportedly hurled a sausage at him onstage during a tour for the Smiths album Meat Is Murder.
Morrissey plays the Concert Hall, Sydney Opera House on Tuesday May 26, Wednesday May 27, Saturday May 30 and Sunday May 31 in what will be his only Australian shows. Tickets are only available via a ballot process, opening Monday March 2.
