Fall 2018 Tour
A Jacobs Music Center Rental Event
The iconic frontman of The Smiths, Morrissey is widely credited as a seminal figure in the emergence of indie rock and britpop and has been called "one of the most singular figures in Western popular culture” (-Pitchfork). The Smiths emerged from the British independent music scene in the early 1980s, and Morrissey led the band to 15 studio, live and compilation albums in their short five years together. After The Smiths disbanded, Morrissey achieved even greater success as a solo artist as he launched a prolific career that has seen all 11 of his records entering the UK charts in the Top Ten, including three landing at #1.
His latest release, Low in High School, landed him a Top 5 record in the UK. In addition, on August 31, 2018 Morrissey released This is Morrissey, a new compilation album made of selected hits from his early solo albums, through WBR.
The Independent summed up his level of influence, writing that "most pop stars have to be dead before they reach the iconic status he has reached in his lifetime.” Perhaps his greatest achievement has come as an artist that has managed to inspire large audiences of fans all over the world. His lyrics, often romanticizing alienation, at times blunt and fearless, at other times vulnerable and poignant, have touched people the world over, transcending far beyond the normal artist/fan relationship.
For many, listening to Morrissey became a rite of passage into adulthood, and his music has an emotional depth that grows with listeners throughout their life. Believer magazine has said that Morrissey’s fans are "blurring the lines between what it means to be a pop icon and a religious icon.”
