Morrissey has announced that he will be playing a show at Manchester Arena on August 20 – his first hometown gig since 2012 – despite having previously suggested that last September’s London performances were likely to be his last in the UK.


“We are obsessively grateful for all interest and loyalty from our audience … throughout 28 years,” he wrote at the time, “but without new releases, there is no point in any additional touring”.


Morrissey remains true to his word, since the Manchester appearance will be the only UK date amid a handful of international shows this year. Damian Dempsey has also been announced as the show’s support act.


Tickets go on sale on Friday, July 8 at 9:00 AM.
