Durham-bound: Morrissey!

Bookmark and Share

Reunion talk has been going around about The Smiths reconvening after more than two decades apart. That's still a long shot, but what I can tell you is that ex-Smiths frontman Morrissey's 2009 spring tour will play the Durham Performing Arts Center on March 11 -- his first Triangle performance in more than a decade, since a 1997 show at The Ritz (now known as Disco Rodeo).

Tickets go on-sale Friday.
