I'm a huge fan of Morrissey and The Smiths. I've been to several concerts and I've never been completely disappointed. Some concerts were better than others, but I always left tipsy and happy.
I know there are a lot of people out there that think Morrissey is done and old news. People think he can't contribute to music anymore. But in all reality, he has contributed so much, that it will never end. He has influenced so many bands that one will never escape. Personally, I don't mind. I can listen to Morrissey and to The Smiths over and over again.
I heard the tickets are $50 each, general admission. I don't think that's too bad. I'm even considering trying to go to both the Los Angeles and San Diego shows.
Hope to see someone, anyone at either the Los Angeles or San Diego shows.
