The tour dates will come on the heels of Morrissey's completion of his forthcoming Harvest Records debut album - the artist's first since 2009's Years Of Refusal -- recorded in France with producer Joe Chiccarelli.  Joining Morrissey on tour will be his longtime band, including Boz Boorer (guitar), Jesse Tobias (guitar), Solomon Walker (bass), Matthew Walker (drums) and Gustavo Manzur (keyboards).

Morrissey's recent Autobiography became one of the fastest-selling memoirs in the UK upon its release in October and set first-week sales records when it entered the UK charts at #1 (a slot it held for five weeks).  Its release also marked the first time a living author had been published by Penguin Classics in the imprint's nearly-70-year history.  Autobiography has been widely acclaimed, with The Telegraph calling it "the best written musical autobiography since Bob Dylan's Chronicles" in its 5-star review.

He is renowned as one of the world's most legendary and influential performing artists of all time, recently exemplified in last year's concert film,Morrissey 25: Live, recorded in March 2013 at a rare intimate show at Hollywood High School in Los Angeles.
