Morrissey Returns to the Stage After Two Year Hiatus

Ex-Smiths frontman and cult legend, Morrissey, will begin a string of live dates in the US and Japan on August 1 in Salt Lake City. The 15-date jaunt will be the singerís first live performances in almost two years. According to NME, the last three stops Morrissey makes will be in an opening slot for Mexican rockers Jaguares, a deal that the star reportedly agreed to after a single phone call. Morrissey, who is currently label-less, released his last studio album in 1997 in the form of Maladjusted on Mercury. Morrisseyís next tour is expected to see him opening for my cousinís polka band on their Midwest tour of Polish community centers next fall.
