LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) – Morrissey fans driving down the 101 Freeway in Hollywood got a thrill Tuesday when they glanced up and saw the name of the legendary English musician.
The Smiths frontman announced that he will be playing the Hollywood Bowl on Nov. 10. The show will precede the release of his first album in three years, “LOW IN HIGH-SCHOOL,” which will drop Nov. 17.
On Tuesday, a portion of the Hollywood Bowl freeway exit sign was covered with his name. It’s unclear who was responsible for the prank.
Billy Idol, the 80s rocker best known for hits such as “Rebel Yell” and “White Wedding”, will be opening for Morrissey. A fan presale is already underway, with tickets going on sale to the general public on Aug. 25 at 10 a.m.
