Morrissey's extensive U.S. tour makes a stop at St. Petersburg's Mahaffey Theatre Friday, May 30, 8:15 p.m.
ST. PETERSBURG - Globally-renowned recording and performing artist Morrissey's extensive U.S. tour began May 7. The tour makes a stop at St. Petersburg's Mahaffey Theatre May 30, 8:15 p.m.

The tour of more than two-dozen performances will include dates at renowned theaters, opera houses, concert halls and arenas affirming the artist’s unique relationship with his fans built on a 30-year recording and performing career that enables him to command the stage at venues of every kind.

Morrissey’s special guest on all dates will be singer, songwriter and keyboardist Kristeen Young.

The tour dates come on the heels of Morrissey’s completion of his forthcoming Harvest Records debut album – the artist’s first since 2009’s Years of Refusal – recorded in France with producer Joe Chiccarelli. Joining Morrissey on tour will be members of his longtime band: Boz Boorer (guitar), Jesse Tobias (guitar), Solomon Walker (bass), Matthew Walker (drums) and Gustavo Manzur (keyboards).

Morrissey’s recent Autobiography became one of the fastest-selling memoirs in the United Kingdom upon its release in October and set first-week sales records when it entered the U.K. charts at No. 1 - a slot it held for five weeks. Its release also marked the first time a living author had been published by Penguin Classics in the imprint’s nearly 70-year history. Autobiography has been widely acclaimed with The Telegraph calling it “the best written musical autobiography since Bob Dylan’s Chronicles” in its five-star review.

Morrissey’s solo career began in 1988, after the dissolution of The Smiths, with the release of Viva Hate. His influence on music and culture has continued to grow over the past 25 years through the release of nine globally acclaimed studio albums and an array of singles, rarities collections and live recordings. He is renowned as one of the world’s most legendary and influential performing artists of all time, recently exemplified in last year’s concert film, Morrissey 25: Live, recorded in March 2013 at a rare intimate show at Hollywood High School in Los Angeles.

The Independent famously wrote that "most pop stars have to be dead before they reach the iconic status he has reached in his lifetime" and Pitchfork regards him as "one of the most singular figures in Western popular culture.”

Tickets for Morrissey are $55, $69, $79 and $89.50 and may be purchased online at TheMahaffey.com, the mobile app My Mahaffey, the theater’s Social Ticketing Facebook app, charge by phone at 727-893-7832 or in person at The Mahaffey Theater Box Office.
