I Know it’s Over, or These Things Take Time?

Well Morrissey certainly makes his position quite clear on the matter of a potential reunion of The Smiths:

“Finally, in an effort to stop the speculation and kill off the rumor mongers who seem to use these things to take advantage of committed fans, we can tell you that one thing the future will not bring is a Smiths reunion tour. Per recent reports, Morrissey was approached during the course of the summer by a consortium of promoters, in the wake of the success of the Police, U2 and Rolling Stones tours, with a $75,000,000 offer to tour in 2008 and/or 2009. The offer called for Morrissey to do a minimum of 50 shows all over the world under the Smiths’ name, with the only proviso being that Johnny Marr was also in the band. The offer has been refused.”

No wonder concert tickets are so expensive.

Still, we’ll be seeing him here in NYC in October.
