Morrissey Played Madison Square Garden (Photos)



Once again I have outtakes from a concert I shot, and this time it is of Morrissey the former lead singer of seminal Manchester band The Smiths, performing at Madison Square Garden on 27 June 2015. The Village Voice, where a couple of my other photos can be found, had a full review of the show (including openers Blondie), where they noted, “the opportunity to see Manchester’s Son and Heir grace the stage was enough to warrant tears. The time between Blondie’s exit and Morrissey’s opening track was soon forgotten as the percussive intro of the Smiths’ political stunner “The Queen Is Dead” began to play beneath the projected image of Queen Elizabeth flipping the bird. Morrissey wielded his microphone with finesse while gripping bright yellow maracas, and fans, following in the tradition of so many showgoers before them, threw flowers onto the stage.”

Check out the photos of his performance, as well as a message from a fan that didn’t likely get delivered, after the jump. Morrissey sure can whip the microphone cord good.
