at Fitzgerald Theater
Monday, 07/13/2015, 7pm ($85/Sold Out)
You know we love Morrissey... and so do you, apparently. Even at $85 (plus various taxes and fees), the iconic singer's upcoming Minnesota show at the Fitzgerald Theater sold out as quickly as it was announced.
Unfortunately the high ticket prices and sold out status is preventing us from being there. We've seen Moz a few times, he puts on a great show... so if you're going, you are going to have a blast.
Joining Morrissey on this World Peace is None of Your Business tour will be his longtime band, including Boz Boorer (guitar), Jesse Tobias (guitar), Mando Lopez (bass), Matthew Walker (drums) and Gustavo Manzur (keyboards).
