Yes, there were times / I'm sure you knew

Yes, there were times / I'm sure you knew

Morrissey On 2014 Tour

What I may risk calling our best tour ever ... has now ended, and my written words of thanks to all who came along to watch and listen are strong enough to burn a hole through the North Pole.
It is gratifying to have so much support around the world, and the drone of my repetitive thanks could somehow never say enough.

The best of the best:

1. London (England) 02 Arena
2. Dublin (Ireland) 3Arena
3. Belgrade (Serbia) Belexpocentar
4. Paris (France) Le Grand Rex
5. Helsinki (Finland) Finlandia, first night
6. Istanbul (Turkey) VW Arena
7. Krakow (Poland) Laznia Nowa
8. Vienna (Austria) Konzerthaus
9. Athens (Greece) Tae Kwon Do Arena
10. Lund (Sweden) Sparbanken Skåne Arena
11. Zagreb (Croatia) Zagreb Fair, Pavilion 9
12. Hannover (Germany) Capitol
13. Essen (Germany) Colosseum
14. Utrecht (Holland) TivoliVredenburg
15. Copenhagen (Denmark) Falconer
16. Bologna (Italy) Paladozza
17. Pescara (Italy) Pala Gpii

Oh, but the list passionately hums on. We are blessed.

My devotional thanks to Boz Boorer, Jesse Tobias, Matthew Ira Walker, Gustavo Manzur and Mando Lopez.

Panic - of course! - at Lyon (France) where we were suddenly without a bass player, but Mando appeared with wings - bigger than life, ready to eat fire... we were saved. He learned a complicated set of songs within a few days and suddenly we were boot camp ready to pick the tour up at Hannover.

Very special thanks to those who travelled to a great number of the shows. I am continually humbled by such determination, and I scarcely know what to say by way of appreciation. Julia attended her 625th show at Istanbul, and I wonder if any living human has been to so many shows by the same artist or band? Documentarily, Julia's will is more fascinating than that of Emmeline Pankhurst, Maud Gonne and Constance Markievicz combined.

Explosive thanks to the websites and magazines who have voted World peace is none of your business as the best album of 2014. We think so, too.
Finally, thank you to Anna Calvi for opening our nights with such supreme Joan of Arc punch and finesse. The world is suddenly a new place.

2015? Imponderable.

Yield to no one,
con carino,
Istanbul, 19 December.

Hannover, Germany

Following the recent predictable attacks of influenza, both the team and I were ecstatic at last night's reception at Hannover. We are very grateful to the crowd for such a huge boost, and we are thrilled to resume what has (sneezes aside) been a triumphant tour for World peace is none of your business. Our thanks will outlive time.
Bass player Solomon is on "compassionate leave", and our new bass player is Mando Lopez, to whom we are instantly indebted.
Our covered wagon rolls onwards ...

24 October 2014


As the first part of our tour concludes, we express over-emotional thanks to everyone who attended the shows. It has been fantastic for us, and it brings a new sense of accomplishment for which, again and again, we thank you.
The generosity of the Spanish and Italian print media has also been quite breath taking, and their support is inspiring. An added joy for me was to sing "The bullfighter dies" on television in Rome, and to sing both "The bullfighter dies" and "Kiss me a lot" for television in Milan. Capping the excitement so far:

1 Bologna, ITALY (17 Oct)
2 Pescara, ITALY (19 Oct)
3 Madrid, SPAIN (9 Oct)
4 Barcelona, SPAIN (10 Oct)
5 Florence, ITALY (21 Oct)
6 Padova, ITALY (22 Oct)
7 Lisbon, PORTUGAL (6 Oct)
8 Rome, ITALY (14 Oct) second night
9 Rome, ITALY (13 Oct) first night
10 Milan, ITALY (16 Oct)

We, too, were shocked by the venues in Roma and Milan - both abysmal - Milan quite shockingly abysmal... not a theater at all ... just a field with a roof. I have never looked out at such an unhappy, uncomfortable and trapped audience in my life. We all did our best. Consider the many majestic concert halls in Milan, and yet there we were on a brutal patch of waste ground on the edge of the city. It was unfathomable. I should stress that we have no idea what the venues are like until we arrive at them. Thankfully, everywhere else was a proper hall.

Autobiography is one year old, and continues to sell very well. It is the people who buy the book that provide inspiration.
There are several record labels interested in releasing World peace is none of your business. I hope this happens soon. The carefully preserved monotony of the music industry is a decline inflicted upon all of us by the dumb and the sterile, and their old tyranny should not be allowed air. Speak up and shout out!
Forgive a further mention of the homemade videos on You Tube that cover the songs from World peace is none of your business, but their number is quite phenomenal, and their articulate intensity proves that the people are ahead of the labels when it comes to understanding the songs.
But of course!
