After almost three years, with postponements and cancellations abound, Morrissey triumphantly returned to Austin to a sold-out Music Hall supporting his upcoming album World peace Is None Of Your Business. Two days earlier he celebrated his 55th birthday, spending it in Dallas at The Majestic Theatre.

Morrissey seemed quite pleased as he took to the stage in his now-regular tour uniform (zip neck shirt with the collar turned under, PETA 'Animals Don't Smoke' stickers, and Stevenson Overall Co. denim), with his long standing band (Boorer, the brothers Walker, Tobias and Manzur) wearing matching 'FANCY MAN' t-shirts. They dove right in to Years Of Refusal's 'One Day Goodbye Will Be Farewell' and didn't look back.

Morrissey's voice was as refined and strong as ever, and as was his way the setlist was shuffled a bit from previous shows . They broke the seal on the newly released single 'Istanbul', the first time it had been played live on the tour (video of that below). Setlist and pictures from Austin are in this post.

Kristeen Young is along for the ride again this tour and blasted off with a firecracker set drawing much from her 2014 release The Knife Shift (which features Moz producer Tony Visconti, Dave Grohl Lou Rossi and Morrissey's Boz Boorer). The tour continues in Memphis tonight and goes through the end of June with a special performance with Cliff Richard at Barclay's Center on 6/21 in New York. (Tickets.) Pics from his birthday show in Dallas are up on BrooklynVegan Austin. See more pictures and the "Istanbul" live video from the Austin show, the setlist, and a list of remaining tour dates, below...

Fussy city boyz and galz love Morrissey.

Graphic designers with grammar fetishes love Morrissey, and all of their other schizophrenic personalities do too!

Morrisey looking happy and healthy, cool.

Nice to see a piece on him that isn't something bad that happened.

Why would you freely allow a whole bevy of racist and homophobic words, but censor "S.p.i.n._D.o.c.t.o.r.s."?

I love those fans in that last picture. they definitely look like an audience that just got their money's worth.

you can practically smell the raw excitement. ("Thank God he sang Yes I Am Blind!")

Did this just set an all-time BV record for most photos? Certainly for a two band show, anyway.

looks liek he dropped a few pounds

Posted by Anonymous | May 28, 2014 8:06 AM

saw the smiths at the pier in '86. never saw morrissey; don't own any of his music. was gonna go to bklyn but looks like he's only playing 3 smiths songs on this tour.

if it was at least 5 i'd go.

regardless, morrissey's bathroom breaks beat every commenter here's LIFE.

and, really, bv, what's with posting the racist slurs? can't believe you'll keep sponsors by allowing THAT.

8:28 thinks BV is posting racist slurs

8:28 is a bit confused

Posted by Anonymous | May 28, 2014 9:52 AM

If you don't have a photo editor you can have the photographer edit their coverage down to about 15 of the very best images. Ever think of that BV?

Sometimes less is more.

Posted by Anonymous | May 28, 2014 10:05 AM

Have to agree. Why so many pictures, and not even really good ones, of a show that was not even in the NYC area?

Slow news day? Click bait?

Posted by Anonymous | May 28, 2014 10:15 AM

9:38 - bought suedehead when it came out but never purchased another morrissey release. heard one full length cd once that was pretty good, but not sure which it was.

i take it you recommend viva hate?

Morrissey should live in the post city. Most celebrities belong there.
