Morrissey Philadelphia Tickets
Morrissey has been in and out of the headlines for his eccentricities both on and off stage. The popular figure of the indie music has enjoyed a cult following on both sides of the Atlantic since his music debut in the ‘70s. He is renowned among peers, critics and fans for his lyrical poetry, angst-filled romances and a witty attitude that has became a highlight in his solo career. In 2014, he released his latest studio album World Peace Is None of Your Business which is now followed by a world tour. The tour is bringing him to Philly, PA for a performance at the Academy of Music.
Morrissey became an iconic figure during the 80’s British indie music scene when he was the front man of The Smiths. After the band parted ways, he went solo and the rest, as they say, is history.
Morrissey’s debut and discography
Morrissey began his solo career with the debut studio album Viva Hate that came out in the spring of 1988. The album was a huge success as it climbed the UK Albums Chart and went gold in the UK. In the US, it was among the Top 50 Billboard 200 and sold more than five hundred thousand copies. Since then, he has released a total of ten studio albums, a couple of live albums, around a dozen compilation albums and an extended play. His singles total is at about fifty whereas he has appeared in more than thirty five music videos.
