It is hard to believe that over a month has passed since Morrissey’s Australia tour has passed. In an open letter talking about why US tour dates had been cancelled Morrissey also ranks the audiences he and his band have played for in 2016.

Philadelphia can lay claim to being his most “appreciated” audience, while his hometown of Manchester came in at eighth on the 15-strong list.

Morrissey states, “This year, the mobilized strength of our ragingly loyal audiences were most appreciated, by me, at:

1. Philadelphia, USA.
2. Brooklyn, USA.
3. Hong Kong, CHINA.
4. Adelaide, AUSTRALIA.
5. Melbourne, AUSTRALIA.
6. Santa Barbara, USA.
7. Helsinki, FINLAND.
8. Manchester, ENGLAND.
9. Goteborg, SWEDEN.
