witz.org was fortunate enough to find out about a presale of tickets for the Morrissey shows at the Apollo Theater in Harlem from a forwarded Morrissey fanclub email with a “secret password”. Unfortunately, the presale information emailed from morrisseymusic.com was totally incorrect. The email I got stated that presale tickets “will be available from Wednesday 3/31 at 8am Pacific Standard Time through Thursday 4/1 at 5pm Pacific Standard Time.”
The email should have read EASTERN Standard Time — 8am Pacific is 11am Eastern. Luckily, witz.org randomly checked Ticketmaster and saw the tickets were on sale and ended up with a pair of 6th row Orchestra Center on Thursday, May 6th (seats in bright green, above). Let the nostalgia begin.
