No, Smiths fans, the band isn't getting back together - not even if the U.K. forms a completely new government, in fact. Even worse, former frontman Morrissey recently announced he'll be retiring in two years, so if you've never seen him live, you'd better rush out and see him at the next available opportunity.
Thankfully, The Boy With the Thorn In His Side is generously giving his fans another chance with the announcement of a fall tour, which will see him moping about 33 U.S. cities beginning October 5 in Boston, MA and wrapping up December 8 in Atlantic City, NJ. As an added bonus for L.A. fans, his Staples Center concert will feature a supporting performance from another rock-music icon, perennial wild-child Iggy Pop and his band of merry Stooges.
