Welcome to this knockabout world
Well, this'll be interesting... :unsure:

Perversely looking forward to seeing their interpretations: judging from the NME videos, they'll be played quite straight?

Heard of (but have never listened to) Blossoms, and never thought Rick Astley of all people would be associated with Moz, but here we are...

I only have eyes for youuuuuu, Aztec!
This makes me feel weird. Like, YES to flying that Smiths flag HIGH, always. Yes to Rick Astley being like “i heart the smiths!”. Kind of no to everything else.

i dont know the Blossoms though, So.

But i think like just Rick Astley, interspersing Never Gonna Give you up in his 80s outfits, with a Mozzy hologram singing the Smiths would be a way better night out.

As a young Moz fan, working in a chain record store, one of my co-workers would always call me “Rick Ashley.” He had no idea who Morrissey was, so Rick was the closest reference point (to my hair and clothes) that he knew of. Anyway, full circle I guess.
Rick does a mean Moz btw… the shows sound like a blast!

I read about this and genuinely thought: “You know what, that sounds like it could be a good laugh.”

But tickets for London are £40.45. If you could get two for that, fair enough, but bloody hell.

I never liked R Astley's voice,.... it's not that he sings badly, it's that he doesn't tolerate how his voice sounds. Others hang on Moz and Johnny. they sing Smith and clin box!! They charge using the themes of M and J.. and to think that we have the two alive and proud and hard heads do not meet to play !!! It would be a mega news, but nooo !!!the fools of Moz and Johnny do not want and one has to settle for the little crumbs that throw us !!!!!
