Concert Announcements: Morrissey, Jeff Magnum & Much, Much More

Let's start with the two biggest announcements, both at Liberty Hall in Lawrence. Morrissey (of The Smiths) will be at Liberty Hall on Saturday, February 2nd.  If you don't know who Morrissey is...why are you reading this blog?!?  Seriously though, I'd put The Smiths in my top 5 favorite bands of all time and I've personally never had the chance to see Moz, so this is a must-see show in my eyes.

Also at Liberty Hall will be a solo, acoustic tour by Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel.  Neutral Milk Hotel are responsible for one of the most celebrated indie rock albums of all time, In The Aeroplane Over The Sea, which never garnered the respect it deserved until NMH were no more.  Luckily for everyone in Lawrence & KC, Mangum will be playing in our area on Friday, January 18th.

Finally, there have been a handful of other notable shows announced over the past few weeks in Lawrence and KC.  As always, you can check out the full concert calendar HERE.
