Morrissey debuts 'Bonfire Of Teenagers' tracks in Vegas
Morrissey kicked off Viva Moz Vegas '22 last night.
The legend returned to the stage for the first night of his five night residency. Moz looked to be in fine form as he belted out a show filled with classics from the Smiths and his solo catalog. Additionally, he debuted several tracks from his forthcoming album Bonfire Of Teenagers, and confirmed that the release of his record is still unknown.
Introducing the new song "Rebels Without Applause," Moz quipped:
"I haven't been lying to you over recent years when I tell you there is a new album. There really is. It will be released in your lifetime...so please don't die soon."
Of the new songs, "Rebels Without Applause" was a highlight - the track features a Smiths-esque vibe with Morrissey namechecking Generation X and X-Ray Spex.
Along with "Rebels Without Applause," Moz debuted "I Live In Oblivion," "My Hurling Days Are Done," "Sure Enough, The Telephone Rings," and the album title track "Bonfire Of Teenagers," which is about the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing.
Morrissey returns to Caesar's Palace tonight for round 2. The final three dates take place July 6th, 7th, and 9th.
