NOTE: See update.
Morrissey is one of those artists that I personally have never warmed to. I’m just going to put that out there.
I can’t deny the man has done what few others have been able to do — become one with a style, sound and attitude. When you think of that kind of music, there can’t be anyone else that comes to mind. And I respect the hell out of him for that.
He’s returning Saturday to the Center of the Arts in Boca Raton, where in 2007 he played an extremely well-received show.
For the uninitiated, the Morrissey experience is… well… how did The Times of London put it? “Dramatic…bleak, funny vignettes about doomed relationships, lonely nightclubs, the burden of the past and the prison of the home.” (Thanks to his Wikipedia entry for the help.)
He is literate, he is stylish and he is his own man. Worth a look.
UPDATE: Morrissey decided to cancel. He said it was due to “illness”, making it the second time he’s canceled due to illness since he played Boca in 2007.
