Former front man of one of the most influential indie bands of the 1980s, The Smiths, comes to Hiroshima on his most comprehensive tour of Japan so far. As well as 10 nights in Japan (the tour also takes in Sendai, Kawasaki, two nights in Tokyo, Fukuoka, Osaka and Nagoya) he will also be playing in South Korea for the first time
A long and very vocal advocate of animal rights, there has been fair bit of grumbling on fan sites about how Morrissey could come to Japan with its continued practice of dolphin culling, when he refused to tour Canada in protest at seal culling.
Hmmm, I wonder if the ¥8000 ticket price might have something to do with that…
If he shows up that is.
Morrissey is scheduled to play at Blue Live in Ujina on April 27 and tickets go on sale on March 4, so we have a few weeks to decide.
