Last weekend, the iconically coiffed English singer-songwriter Morrissey headlined Los Angeles’ famous FYF music festival, where he begged audiences not to elect Donald Trump. This weekend, The Moz (as he is known to the fanatics) brings his dynamic live show (and often contrarian views) to Visalia Fox Theatre. He plays Saturday, Aug. 29, on the final show of his U.S. tour.

Morrissey gained popularity as the singer/lyricist for ’80s indie band The Smiths before going out on his own with a string of well-received solo albums, including “Viva Hate,” “Kill Uncle” and “Your Arsenal.” His latest, “World Peace Is None of Your Business,” was released last year. The singer last played in the area in 2002 at the Rainbow Ballroom in Fresno.

If this is the first you’re hearing of the show, good luck getting in. Tickets sold out within days of going on sale.
