Morrissey coming to Miami's Arsht Center

Morrissey, the famously confessional songwriter, influential pop stylist and score-settling memoirist, will bring his U.S. tour to Miami’s Arsht Center on May 31.

The tour of more than two dozen concert-hall dates, promises to be a stylish retrospective of the bleak and still-beloved poetry created with the Smiths, as well as an introduction to music from a just-completed Harvest Records album, his first since 2009’s “Years Of Refusal.”

Now that he’s finally grown into the brooding old-soul persona he’s been cloaked with since his early 20s, has he become more charming?  

Tickets start at $59.50 and go on sale Feb. 21. Kristeen Young, a frequent musical companion who shares Morrissey’s prickly pop sensibility, opens.  Info:  ArshtCenter.org.
