It's been a tough stretch for this charming man. Having been driven offstage by the stench of burning flesh at Coachella, felled by "breathing troubles" onstage in Swindon, then—what the fuck?—clocked with a beer bottle onstage in Liverpool, Morrissey needs our love more than ever. Touring in support of his recent B-sides compilation Swords, Morrissey will hit the Paramount with his perennially sharp band and, if recent history holds true, an unusual generosity with Smiths classics.
