The Moz doesn't show up on television very often, but when he does it's worth throwing a party over. You know, like what lame people do for episodes of American Idol. Bust out the chips and dip April 28 and 29 when Morrissey appears on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. That's right, that's two performances, so prepare extra guac.

Morrissey Announces Exclusive Back-to-Back Performances on

The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson in Support of “Greatest Hits”

“ Morrissey isn’t just any singer: he has become one of the defining rock stars of the past few decades by virtue of his grand voice, his grander songs, and his charming habit of playing with melodrama” –New York Times, July 25, 2007

“ Most pop stars have to be dead before they reach the iconic status that Morrissey has achieved in his lifetime.” –The Independent, February 18, 2008

Morrissey will appear on “THE LATE LATE SHOW with CRAIG FERGUSON” on two consecutive nights, Monday April 28th and Tuesday the 29th. This television event is in celebration of the release of “Greatest Hits”, released on Decca/Universal. This will be a rare chance to see Morrissey perform both a new song and a classic single (All You Need Is Me + Irish Blood, English Heart). “THE LATE LATE SHOW with CRAIG FERGUSON” airs weeknights on CBS at 12:35 AM ET/PT.

“Greatest Hits” spans Morrissey’s stellar 20-year solo career as a true original, and one of the world’s greatest musical talents. Every song on “Greatest Hits” is a UK Top 20 single. Nine of these are UK Top 10 hits. Two new songs are included – the new single “That’s How People Grow Up” and “All You Need Is Me” - recorded with Jerry Finn, producer of 2004’s widely acclaimed Billboard Top 20 album “You Are The Quarry”. Morrissey is currently working with Finn on his new studio album, the follow-up to 2006’s UK #1/Billboard Top 20 album “Ringleader Of The Tormentors”. Morrissey will tour Europe this year and a new studio album is due out in the fall.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
