Morrissey coming to St. Petersburg on U.S. tour


Published:   |   Updated: February 14, 2014 at 01:54 PM

Morrissey announced a 25-date U.S. concert tour today, including a rare stop for the British singer in the Tampa Bay area. Fingers crossed, this time it’s going to happen.

The former vocalist for seminal ‘80s indie band The Smiths is set to play The Mahaffey Theater on May 30, the St. Petersburg venue said in a news release.

Morrissey has gained a reputation for canceling tours in recent years. He was last set to play locally in 2009, but canceled due to illness just days before the concert at St. Petersburg’s Jannus Landing. A 2013 tour was also canceled, apparently due to pneumonia and a bleeding ulcer.

Tickets for the Mahaffey show, priced from $55 to $89.50, go on sale Feb. 21 at noon through themahaffey.com, the theater’s box office, or by calling (727) 893-7832.

Morrissey is set to release his first album since 2009 later this year, the news release said. His best-selling book, “Autobiography,” was released in 2013.
