Morrissey teased a retirement from touring at his show in Boston, via Reddit. He said he wouldn’t be seeing his fans for ‘a long time.’ Morrissey has canceled numerous shows recently.
The Smiths vocalist Morrissey recently shared a video clip that saw children mocking music critics, in promotion of his forthcoming album ‘Bonfire Of Teenagers’.
Morrissey shares the video clip
The soloist and former The Smiths singer posted a clip of a kid approaching another kid who’s posing as a music journalist. The scene shows the critic telling the Morrissey fan, “I don’t need to listen to the album; the review is already written,” after the fan encourages him to give it a good evaluation.
Live footage of Morrissey performing ‘I Am Veronica‘, which is the opening song on his forthcoming album, follows. We see the critic fall under something of a spell, becoming a firm Morrissey fan.
It has been also noted that Morrissey’s promotional clip is a nod to his troubled relationship with the press. Three years ago he called out The Guardian for what he claimed was a “hate campaign” against him.
He sparked controversy back in 2019. It included him coming under fire for sporting a For Britain badge during a number of live engagements in the US, most notably during a performance on the chat show The Tonight Starring Jimmy Fallon. The singer was also condemned by Billy Bragg for his public support of the far-right party, with Bragg branding Morrissey “the Oswald Mosley of pop”.
The Smiths legend Morrissey recently disappointed his fans when he walked off stage and canceled his LA gig midway through. He has postponed his concert scheduled Friday at the Fillmore in Minneapolis. Morrissey had previously pulled two shows in Salt Lake City and Denver this week.
