Morrissey still ill, postpones shows but is re-releasing Kill Uncle

Artist News Gigs & Festivals Releases


Following his recent hospitalisation with various health complaints, and subsequent show cancellations, Morrissey has been advised “on doctors orders” to postpone additional dates on his US tour. Writing via Facebook, Moz says concerts in Las Vegas (9 Feb), Phoenix (10 Feb) and Sparks, Nevada (2 Mar) will be reset, but promises he’ll still be able to play in El Paso on 12 Feb.

But wait, it’s not all bad, because Parlophone is to carry on with its Moz re-release campaign via reissues of Morrissey’s 1991 solo LP ‘Kill Uncle’ and 1989 single ‘The Last Of The Famous International Playboys’. The latter will feature added live tracks ‘People Are The Same Everywhere’, ‘Action Is My Middle Name’ and ‘The Kid’s A Looker’, which date back to a live Radio 2 Session circa 2011.

The new ‘Kill Uncle’ will, says Tru To You, have a “revitalised quality” to it, and will carry a rearranged tracklisting as follows:

Our Frank
Sing Your Life
Mute Witness
King Leer
Asian Rut
Pashernate Love
East West
Found Found Found
Driving Your Girlfriend Home
The Harsh Truth Of The Camera Eye
There’s A Place In Hell For Me And My Friends
(I’m) The End Of The Family Line
