Morrissey Turns Down 75 Million To Reunite The Smiths

Filed in Music News, Tour Dates and Videos 3 comments

According to a published report, Morrissey recently turned down an offer to reunite his former band The Smiths for a 2008-2009 reunion tour. The deal is reported to have been worth 75 million and include 50 shows. It was also said that the only required members for this tour would have been Moz and Johnny Marr.

Looks like The Smiths will never be back together, for anything.

Morrissey also announced a slew of new tour dates, which include a Midwest stop in Merrillville, IN (closer to Chicago than Cincy) and loads of dates in LA and NY. It is also rumored that this group of dates are “the last shows Morrissey will do for the foreseeable future.” Get em while they are hot!

Big thanks to Filter for the tip…..

How many more times does Morrissey have to make clear that “no” is “no”? The man has principles that cannot be bended by any amount of money. I respect that. The Smits will NEVER tour again, at least not with Morrissey in it.
