“Morrissey Day” declared in Los Angeles

The Los Angeles City Council is declaring Friday, November 10th, “Morrissey Day”. To honor the occasion the city will be presenting the Mancunian singer with an official commemorative certificate at the first of his two sold-out Hollywood Bowl shows.

This is not much of a surprise given the singer’s immense popularity in the City of Angels. in part due to his frequent airplay on local radio station KROQ. The city’s Mayor Eric Garcetti had this to say about the announcement:

Morrissey Day celebrates an artist whose music has captivated and inspired generations of people who may not always fit in — because they were born to stand out.”

Additionally, the Hollywood Bowl will be changing its menus to all vegetarian cuisine for Morrissey’s two scheduled performances.

“Morrissey Day honors the man who put the ‘M’ in Moz Angeles, an icon whose music continues to touch and uplift countless people across the globe,” said Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez. “Morrissey uses his voice to raise awareness for many social issues while ‘in his own strange way,’ always staying true to his fans.”
