‘Tis the season to be jolly, and all that. But if you’d rather pass the holiday season seeing some awesome bands than sitting inside gorging yourself on turkey and roast vegetables, then we’ve got you covered with this roundup of the shows that we’d love to be attending over the next month or so (if our budget extended to jetting all over the country to see them all, which sadly it doesn’t). Anyway, have a read and let us know what’s on your gig-going itinerary for the next month or so. We can make it through this together.
November 23-December 17; West Coast, Mexico and Chicago
Who better to bring the festive spirit than, um, Morrissey? Fresh from the latest skirmish in his ongoing legal battle with the NME, and having had to cancel the opening gig on this tour because his guitarist couldn’t get into the country, the Mozzer will doubtless be in a fine old mood for these shows. Fans will be happy to know that he’s been changing up the setlist every night so far on this tour — and has even closed several shows with 24-carat Smiths classic “I Know It’s Over.” Rejoice.
