L.A. de­clares Mor­ris­sey Day

Los Angeles Times - - CALENDAR - — Randy Lewis

Fri­day has been deemed “Mor­ris­sey Day” in L.A. by the Los Angeles City Coun­cil. The dis­tinc­tion co­in­cides with the Bri­tish pop star’s two-night stand at the Hol­ly­wood Bowl this week­end and next week’s re­lease of his lat­est al­bum, “Low in High School.”

“Los Angeles embraces in­di­vid­u­al­ity, com­pas­sion, and cre­ativ­ity, and Mor­ris­sey ex­presses those val­ues in a way that moves An­ge­lenos of all ages,” Mayor Eric Garcetti said in a state­ment Wed­nes­day.

In recog­ni­tion of Mor­ris­sey’s an­i­mal-rights ad­vo­cacy, the Hol­ly­wood Bowl is chang­ing its menu to all veg­e­tar­ian fare dur­ing his per­for­mances Fri­day and Satur­day, with Billy Idol in the open­ing slot.

Mor­ris­sey has long main­tained a strong fan base in Los Angeles, the fourth city on his U.S. tour this year.
