Morrissey Does Albany? Yes!

Morrissey has announced the dates for his 33-city fall American tour, and guess what? That’s right, Albany made the cut with a concert date at the Palace Theatre at 8pm on Thursday, October 18.

The former Smiths frontman is advertised as performing “greatest hits from his legendary catalog as well as new unreleased songs.”

Kristeen Young will open the show.

Tix are priced at $29.50, $39.50, $49.50 & $59.50. Tix will go on sale to Palace members on Tuesday (June 19); the general public sale begins at 10am on Friday (June 22).

NOTE: Morrissey was actually scheduled to make his Albany debut at the Palace Theatre back in November 1991, but he cancelled the show at the last minute due to “exhaustion.”

    More like the Palace’s new Exec is making all the right changes.

    Why this guy? We need rock and roll around here, not geriatric proto-emo.

    Fred – Mick Ronson begs to differ. Well, he would if he was still alive.

    Fred, pull your head out of your ass. Morrissey has had a huge influence on everything that came after, like it (him) or not. Sorry if .38 Special isn’t playing a gig here this summer…there’s ALWAYS Eddie Money.

  5. Fred says:

    By rock and roll, I mean The Supersuckers, Los Lobos, Imelda May, Iggy and the Stooges, The Figgs, Willie Nile, The Fleshtones, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers…. .38 Special is not my idea of entertainment. As for Morrissey, yes, he’s influential but so is “American Idol.” Oh well, to each his own…

  6. Normando says:

    Sure enough. Interestingly, Iggy and the Stooges are opening for Morrissey in Los Angeles.

    fire up the bbqs!
