Just when it started to look like it may be near impossible to see a Morrissey concert, the Balboa morrisseyTheatre in San Francisco has come to the rescue with two screenings of the legacy concert film Morrissey 25: Live. Screening on Thursday, August 29th and Tuesday, September 3rd, both shows are at 7pm. You'll want to get those tickets HERE now!

Filmed live during Morrissey’s most intimate gig in decades at the Hollywood High School in Los Angeles on March 2, 2013, this is the first authorized Morrissey film to hit theatres in nine years and celebrates 25 years of the solo career of one of the world’s most iconic and enigmatic performers.

The film opens with fan tributes; talking about their unwavering devotion to the singer and the unique appeal of this unusual venue – a striking contrast to the sold out arena concert at the Staples Center on the previous night. Tickets to the concert in the 1,800-seater school auditorium were sold out in 12 seconds and this now legendary concert became Morrissey’s penultimate performance on the US Tour. Morrissey was forced to postpone then ultimately cancel a large portion of his North American tour earlier this year, due to ongoing medical issues. The performance filmed for Morrissey 25: Live was among the singer's last, before an extended hiatus.
