Morrissey in Maui at MACC | Alternative Rock
May 18, 7pm doors
Maui Arts & Cultural Center, Castle Theater
BAMP Project, in association with Rick Cooper Music, is proud to present one of the most influential figures in alternative rock, Morrissey, live in concert 20 years after his first Hawaii performance. The former lead singer of The Smiths and one of the most influential icons of all time will perform May 18 on Maui and May 19 on Oahu with tickets on sale Friday, March 9 at 9:00 a.m.
Since launching his solo career in 1987, Morrissey has released nine studio albums, sold out concerts in minutes and sold millions of records worldwide. His first two solo singles, "Suedehead" and the gorgeous "Everyday Is Like Sunday," were significant global hits in 1988 and his first album, Viva Hate (its title a reference to the Smiths' breakup), was commercially and critically well-received. He released several more high-quality singles, including "The Last of the International Playboys" and "Interesting Drug."
His 1992 album Your Arsenal easily ranked as the hardest-rocking of his career, or at least, that was overshadowed in England; over in the U.S., tickets for his upcoming tour were selling like hotcakes and he managed to sell out L.A.'s Hollywood Bowl even faster than the Beatles had. His American success helped Morrissey deliver an equally strong fourth album 1994's calmer Vauxhall and I, which even got him his first Top 50 singles-chart entry in the U.S. with the MTV-supported "The More You Ignore Me, the Closer I Get." His ninth studio album, Years Of Refusal, released in 2009 saw Morrissey tie his highest U.S. chart debut on the Billboard 200.
Listed as one of the most important musicians in the last three decades, Morrissey made a significant impact on music creating a trail for dozens of modern day alternative rock acts like Radiohead, The Killers and Jeff Buckley all claiming to have been influenced by Morrissey's music and songwriting.
