Ex-Smiths man to tour new record in May, pentagram baby not in fact a pentagram baby


Morrissey has announced details of a twelve-date tour of the UK beginning with a show at Stirling's Albert Hall in May 2009.

The iconically-quiffed one's forthcoming Years Of Refusal LP features sleeve art with a strangely-daubed baby which we recently suggested may have had satanic overtones.

This in turn prompted an overly credulous Mark Beaumont to paint the peace-loving Quietus folk as "vicious" in the comments section of his recent Guardian blog, hilarious details of which can be found here.

Don't worry Mark, we's only joshing.

Years Of Refusal is released on February 16th next year via Decca. Here are those dates in unsparing, hellish detail:


4 Stirling Albert Hall
5 Dundee Caird Hall
7 Glasgow Barrowlands
10 Liverpool Empire
13 Birmingham Symphony Hall
15 Great Yarmouth Britannia Pier
16 Cambridge Corn Exchange
19 Hull Arena
20 Hartlepool Borough Hall
25 Salisbury City Hall
26 London Mile End Troxy Ballroom
28 London Brixton 02 Academy
