The Smiths’ former front man is coming to the Lifestyle’s Community Pavilion to showcase his legendary alternative rock and indie music. Having been described by music magazine NME as “one of the most influential artists ever” and by Pitchfork Media as “one of the most singular figures in Western popular culture from the last twenty years,” Morrissey’s musical influence is indisputable.
After The Smiths ended their highly successful run in the United Kingdom in the 1980s, Morrissey began a solo career. He made the top ten of the UK Singles Chart on ten occasions in addition to his first solo album, Viva Hate, entering the UK Albums Chart at number one. Don’t miss Morrissey in the Arena District playing classics from his albums as well as unreleased songs in one of his dynamic performances.
St. Louis songwriter Kristeen Young will open on all nights. While Young is noted for her aggressive, dissonant playing style and four-octave vocal range, the band also includes drummer “Baby” Jeff White.
