After the petty to and fro of his label dispute with Harvest over its handling of World Peace is None of Your Business, Morrissey today announced the more straightforward matter of an 18-date European tour this autumn. Countries whose Morrissey fans will soon have a better than average chance of having to work their way through the local refunds system include Poland, Italy (where Morrissey has scheduled six dates), Germany, Denmark and Sweden.

Rumoured dates in Budapest, Bucharest and Istanbul have not surfaced, unfortunately, possibly due to a perceived lack of vegetarian options in local restaurants. The tour kicks off, as promised, in Portugal, and concludes with a night at the O2 Arena in London.
