Despite a U.S. tour that was ultimately cut short by health issues, Morrissey’s triumphant March 2, 2013 show at Hollywood High School in Los Angeles was captured in its full glory for his first official concert film in nine years.
Ttitled Morrissey 25: Live From Hollywood High (referencing his 25years as a solo artist), the trailer features clips of the singer performing 1994 solo song “Speedway” and The Smiths‘ “Still Ill,” while fans show off “Moz” tattoos, wave banners and rush the stage.
The trailer also features Morrissey’s shirt changes throughout the show (he sports no less than three over the course of the clip), one of which he tosses into the intimate crowd of less than 2000 diehard devotees.
According to Slicing Up Eyeballs, the film’s distributor SpectiCast is making Morrissey 25 available for cinematic release on August 29, while Eagle Rock Entertainment will issue the DVD, though a release date has yet to be announced.
Morrissey is scheduled for a string of South American tour dates starting July 9 in Lima, Peru, and wrapping up August 4 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
