Morrissey’s Canadian tour to make a Calgary stop in April

The Mozzer is headed across the country. Knock wood.

Iconic singer Morrissey, who came to fame in the ’80s as frontman for The Smiths, has booked a cross-Canada tour which is set to stop in Calgary April 17 for a Jubilee Auditorium date.

It’s his first full tour of this country in over 15 years, since he vowed to boycott it until the seal hunt was banned.

Tickets for all of the dates will go on sale Friday, Feb. 22 beginning at 10 a.m. from

Continuing with his promotion of animal welfare and organizations that support the cause, portion of proceeds from ticket sales for the tour will go to the following Canadian charities that Morrissey has chosen: Toronto Chicken Save, Toronto Cow Save, Toronto Fish Save, Toronto Fur Animal Save, Vancouver Chicken Save, Vancouver Fur Animal Save, Winnipeg Chicken Save, Ottawa Farmed Animal Save, Newfoundland Fur Animal Save, Manitoba Pig Save, Hamilton Animal Save, Calgary Cow Save, Alberta Farm Animal and Horse Save, Regina Pig Save and Nova Scotia Mink and Fox Save.

Morrissey, a mercurial and sometimes polarizing public figure, released his latest solo album in 2017 Low in High School.

His upcoming tour will reportedly feature “songs spanning his legendary career along with new songs from his upcoming album coming later this year.”
