Morrissey to play Cardiff!!

2323_3.jpg NME have confirmed the entire lineup of UK gigs that Morrissey is set to play to promote his new album, Ringleader of the tormentors.

This includes a date in none other than my home city of Cardiff.
May 15th at St Davids Hall.

For many years I have been dreaming of the day that I find out my idol is coming here, and now that it has come.
It’s a mixture of emotions.
Shock, excitement and awe are just a few words to describe it.
From memory, the last time that Morrissey did a gig in Wales was with The Smiths in 1986 at the Newport Centre.

The full lineup is;

Salford Lowry (April 18)
Llandudno NW Theatre (19)
Leeds Town Hall (20)
Aberdeen Music Hall (22)
Stirling Albert Halls (23)
Dundee Caird Hall (25)
Greenock Town Hall (26)
Glasgow Academy (27)
Whitehaven Civic (29)
Gateshead Sage (30)
Sheffield City Hall (May 3)
Grimsby Auditorium (4)
Manchester Apollo (6)
Manchester Opera House (7)
Manchester Bridgewater (8)
Halifax Victoria Hall (10)
Blackburn King Georges (11)
Liverpool Philharmonic (12)
London Palladium (14)
Cardiff St Davids (15)
Reading Hexagon (17)
Portsmouth Guildhall (19)
Birmingham Symphony Hall (20)
London Palladium (21)
Truro Hall For Cornwall (23)
Cheltenham Town Hall (24)
Oxford New Theatre (25)
Kings Lynn Corn Exchange (27)
London Palladium (28)

Tickets go on sale this Friday (20th) for the London gigs and the next Friday (27th) for all other gigs, at 9am. Get there quick, I don’t expect the tickets to be around for long. Prices have yet to be released, but I expect them to be around the £30-35 mark.

Update: I have decided that I shall also be going to the Cheltenham gig on the 24th May.
Hell, why not? It’s only an hour away and £15 on the train.
Morrissey twice in one month. Jesus christ, the month of May is going to rock!


  1. The last time the great one played Cardiff was February 1995 – again St. Davids Hall. Proud to say that I was there – and will be again, with any luck!
    How many tickets do you think I’ll be able to get? I have an order for 10 – but fear this may be impossible!

  2. i’m hopefully going to see him in truro and cheltenham (twice in 2 days!) – i’ve never seen him live before, i’m really excited!
    unfortunately i think you can only get a maximum of 4 tickets at most venues (although you can always get more from ebay ;) )
