Hardcore Morrissey fans always wearing black and a black veil, because they permanently have the Emos since they’re hardcore Morrissey fans. But today, they’re putting a second black veil over their black veil, because Morrissey has announced that his next two shows in London may be his last shows in the UK for the rest of eternity. Morrissey is always being extra melodramatic and he’s said shit like this many times before. So Morrissey may just be pulling a Morrissey. He doesn’t have a record label in the UK anymore and he isn’t working on a new album, so he doesn’t think there’s any point in touring. Morrissey left this message on one of his fansites:
“There is absolutely no way that we can generate any interest from record labels in the United Kingdom, therefore the imminent two nights at Hammersmith are likely to be our final ever UK shows. We are obsessively grateful for all interest and loyalty from our audience … throughout 28 years … but without new releases, there is no point in any additional touring. Thank you for so many absolutely incredible times. The pleasure and privilege is mine … “
Tickets are still available for at least one of his shows, so this could be a STUNT. I wouldn’t be surprised if in a year or so, Morrissey announces new shows in London and dramatically says that they will be his last for real, because he just can’t go on anymore.
The Guardian says that Morrissey was dropped by his label Harvest Records last year and he hasn’t been able to find a new home for his music. Morrissey claims that every record label he’s tried to get with has turned him down. Nobody wants his ass. Hmmm… I wonder why record labels don’t want Morrissey. I wonder if someone sent a messenger Corgi to every record label in the UK with a note warning them that they will be tried for treason if they sign that traitor. I wonder….
Game point goes to THE QUEEN!
