Hull Culture and Leisure, which works in partnership with the council has described securing the former Smiths frontman as 'a real coup'.

Hull Arena is a fantastic venue for music, with stars including Ed Sheeran and the Arctic Monkeys previously playing sold-out gigs. This booking of world-renowned artist Morrissey shows just the calibre of artists Hull can attract. Straight from playing Madison Square Garden in New York, he is coming to Hull - this is a real coup!
