Historic 1995 Concert Makes DVD Debut On September 9
Following the recent anniversary edition of Morrissey’s peerless, 1994 number one album Vauxhall and I, Parlophone will release the concert film INTRODUCING MORRISSEY, previously unavailable on DVD, on September 9.
After the acclaim and chart success of 1994’s Vauxhall and I, Morrissey took to the road in February 1995 for his first UK shows in over two years. INTRODUCING MORRISSEY documents this historic tour, recorded over two nights at Sheffield’s City Hall and the Winter Gardens in Blackpool (February 7 and 8 respectively).
This hour-long concert, directed by James O’Brien, captures Morrissey and his band at the peak of their powers, performing to ever hysterical and devoted audiences in packed out venues. The set list features six songs from Vauxhall - including “The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get,” three from Your Arsenal, as well as non-album single “Boxers” (and b-side “Have-A-Go Merchant”), the rare, perennial fan favourite “Jack The Ripper,” and an exquisite cover of Johnny Mercer and Henry Mancini’s “Moon River.”
INTRODUCING MORRISSEY is a beautiful visual reminder of the transcendent experience of a Morrissey concert, captured for posterity and now finally available on DVD.
