    I forgot all about the show. I will see if there are still any tickets available closer to show time and if I can make it (depending on class), sure, that'll be great. There is a tap room just right up the street from The Orange Peel, called Barley's, bottom floor is bar/pizzeria and the second floor is the tap room!

    Morrissey will play the Enmore Theatre in Sydney, Australia, on Friday 21 December.





    Just signed up to the Frontier Touring mailing list for presales and became an Opera House member ($110 or whatever it was).

    Can't wait! Will be at both Sydney shows.

    After a year of letters to the editor and tours of Lithuania, good Morrissey news has been pretty thin on the ground, so here's something that made me happy to be on the old codger's side, for once. Morrissey rushes to help elderly woman after collapse in NYC bookstore.

    Sadly, I think the latest is "fat chance". Morrissey's claimed to the press that a record is done, and has been done for some time, and that some offers have been on the table from different labels but, from a business standpoint, they've been unworkable. That said, Morrissey says all manner of things to the press, and I'm unable to distinguish his truths from his obfuscations. Some times, I think Morrissey is as well. He's been touring constantly (or he has been right up until his mother fell ill) and has been playing new material. I have no evidence for this, but my gut tells me that this is how the last few years of Morrissey's pop career will look. Lots of gigging, the occasional new song played live and posted on Youtube, without the fuss of an album promotion cycle. Of course I'd like to see new music from him, but if this really is the beginning of the end, Years of Refusal is a fine way to exit. You may disagree, but I rate it only slightly second-best to Vauxhall and I among his solo catalogue.

    Morrissey's rescheduled U.S. dates will be announced on November 12; dates in New Zealand and Australia remain firmly in place - true-to-you.net

    3 November 2012

    The new run of Morrissey's rescheduled U.S. dates will be announced on November 12. The dates in New Zealand and Australia remain firmly in place, and the North American shows will continue from the beginning of January.

    Billboard: We're still awaiting the follow-up to 2009's 'Years of Refusal,' which you've said won't be released without label support. Are you holding fast to that, or have you started to consider alternate methods of distribution?

    Morrissey: I've held fast, but I now accept that the newer songs - which actually aren't that new anymore - will only ever exist in the YouTube domain. Do I see myself receiving a grown-up recording offer from a label of stature and power? No. I have a better chance of being hit by lightning.

    You can't blame him though, it's doctors orders -

    Message from Morrissey

    Message from Morrissey
    The reports of my death have been greatly understated. Once admitted to the William Beaumont Hospital at Royal Oak in Michigan, I received treatment for concussion, a bleeding ulcer, and Barrett's esophagus. The positive from all of this is that there are now no known ailments left for me to try.
    I am fully determined to resume the tour on February 9 at the Chelsea Ballroom in Las Vegas. If there's an audience of any kind in attendance, I just might die with a smile on my face, after all. If I am not there, I shall probably never again be anywhere.
    Equally, I am determined to play Flint (Michigan) if it kills me (which, on the face of it, it almost has.)
    Thank you to everyone present at both Brooklyn (New York) and Melbourne (Australia) during recent weeks for two of the best nights of what might charitably be termed my "career". My debt to you will outlive time itself.
    pause at my headstone,

    Holy shit, a concussion? What's that from? Also, his diagnosis of that 'potentially cancerous' throat condition is freaking me out.

    Oh I know, I completely understand that...what I meant by that however was just I feel so bad that he's been so sick and I wish he would take it even more easier...perhaps just call off the tour for a bit and get your health back to 100%. It just seems he's been trying to get better again and then he has to cancel more dates due to his health. I wish him a speedy recovery of course.

    Pretty good interview with Johnny in Pitchfork today. I had no idea he still lived in Portland. I'm also glad he seems to hate Mumford and Sons as much as I do.

    He hates Mumfords & Sons? All the more reason to love Johnny Marr.

    Statement 16 February 2013 - true-to-you.net

    Statement:

    I am terribly sorry that the next three shows have been moved back. The worst is for the best. I am certainly on the road to recovery, but caution and prevention demand further IV blood work lest I keel over and die before your very eyes. I apologize to an almost annoying degree for any trouble I've caused to anyone by way of travel plans and dog-sitters and ticket-outlay and re-molded hairstyles. I should be as fit as a ferret for San Diego. Please don't be too appalled if you see me out and about this week in the Hollywood area. Perversely, it's all in accordance with doctor's orders: to have myself re-integrated with the call of the greasepaint and the smell of the crowd; the flash of light and the full thrust of mosh-pit sound. Illness turns the body into a complete stranger, and I'll be testing the capabilities of my strides at the most unlikely music shows this week. The will to get on with it runs strong. Even death can be used as a springboard. For those scholars who are heatedly curious, my ulcer is now under reins, even if neither asleep nor dead, but the continued cause for concern is a slightly embarrassing absence of blood – most of which the bleeding ulcer relieved me of. Anemia sets its own terms with quite obvious biological conclusions, and I have spent these last weeks under expert medical care in Los Angeles with an almost erotic dependency on various IV drips. Sitting around reading indecent books is no substitute for continuing the tour, but my progress holds great promise and Flint shall not escape quite so lightly. We are all at the mercy of biological chance, and I once again beg for your liberal tolerance. If you bump into me this week at a heavy rock show, please understand that I'm lowering myself into the cut and thrust after weeks on ice - horizontal, with sockets empty of eyes. In the midst of the abyss, I'm saved by the news that tickets for the tour continue to sell very well, and my straightjacket twitches with excited gratitude. But the patient must be patient. Our goal, now, is San Diego, by which time my blood-work shall have finally taken its course and I shall be shot from a cannon and might even be equipped with an extra eye. We just never know, do we? Being on life's danger list, I've found, actually prevents you from thinking about how you are, and there's a bread-like warmth in giving in to whatever was meant for you and whatever wasn't. The only critical mistake might be to confuse your pre-med with creativity - which is certainly worth the confusion if it renders you not fully present in your own life. Finally, I gorge myself on thanks for the many and varied messages of support that I've received over these recent four weeks. They have yanked me out of prolonged mood dips and cured a crisis of spirits. I fully realize that the word 'cancellation' in every known dictionary is followed by my own name, but no morale drops as low as my own at the mere suggestion of re-jigging shows. I sincerely ask for your pardon and your understanding. As for those of you who claim to now be officially sick to death of me - if this is really true, then why exactly are you reading this? As a matter of fact, I am even prepared to humble myself to nothing before those who carp; you see, any hospital-stay leaves us in danger of becoming unnecessarily agreeable. Life will right itself.

    Whatever happens, I love you.

    Unless you're Carey Mulligan (who had bad taste in men), lame hipsters, or the music buying public with no taste. I told my dad that this is what is considered rock. He was insulted. Back to topic.

    It was good seeing how Johnny Marr came up with those riffs for "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now". Man, he's such a great guitar player. He should be up there with the Hendrix, Clapton, and other rock guitarists. Hell, I think he's far more interesting than those guys.
