MORRISSEY SATURDAY, JANUARY 2, 2016 AT 8:30 P.M.
LAS VEGAS (October 19, 2015) – Influential English singer Morrissey brings his iconic show to The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas on Saturday, January 2, 2016 at 8:30 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, October 23 at 10 a.m.
Morrissey has been called “one of the most singular figures in Western popular culture from the last twenty years” for his contribution to music (Pitchfork). His music has influenced such seminal artists as Radiohead, The Killers, Oasis and The Decemberists. Morrissey is the iconic frontman of The Smiths, one of the most influential bands in history. The Smiths emerged from the British independent music scene in the 1980s and Morrissey led the band to 15 studio, live and compilations albums in their short five years together. After The Smiths disbanded, Morrissey launched a prolific solo career that included 49 singles and twelve solo top-ten albums, three of them landing at #1 on the UK charts. His latest album, World Peace Is None Of Your Business, was released in July 2014. Throughout his career leading The Smiths and as a solo artist, he has sold millions of records. 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.”
