Morrissey Says No Labels Attending His Show Is ‘A Sad Sign Of The Times’

More controversy has stemmed from Morrissey’s recent show at Madison Square Garden in New York, NY on Saturday (June 27). TrueToYou is reporting that despite the former Smiths frontman calling the show “fantastic”, as well as praising Blondie opening for him, the singer had a strong criticism of his MSG performance.

Morrissey acknowledged that there was “zero label interest”, suggesting that no record labels attended the gig. Moz also added that it was “a sad sign of the times”.Morrissey had a major falling-out with now former record label, Harvest, last year over his album release, World Peace Is None of Your Business. The former Smiths singer complained about a lack of promotion and walked away from Harvest soon after. The album has since been removed from various streaming services and digital retailers in the United States. Morrissey contributed this to “mutual mistrust” The singer reiterated that no record label was willing to re-issue the album, blaming “the curse of Harvest Records”.

Moz’s Madison Square Garden show also made the news when it was revealed that despite the singer’s personal request for the venue to go vegan-only during his performance, Madison Square Garden actually went ahead against Morrissey’s wishes and served meat in premium areas of the arena.

    I’m a big Morrissey fan, but even I wouldn’t touch this guy if I had a label. He’s just too demanding, and — sorry to say — not as big as he believes he is. It’s true that Harvest did a lousy, piss-poor job of promoting his most recent album. But Morrissey kind of brings it in himself by being a royal pain in the ass to do business with.

    I’m sure you don’t need to attend a Morrissey gig to know whether you want to sign Morrissey or not. I seriously doubt we’ll ever get to a place where Morrissey can’t get a record released.
