After the acclaim and chart success of ‘Vauxhall and I’, Morrissey took to the road in February 1995 - his first UK shows for over two years. Introducing Morrissey documents this historic tour, recorded over two nights at Sheffield’s City Hall and the Winter Gardens in Blackpool (February 7th and 8th respectively). This hour-long concert, directed by James O’Brien, captures Morrissey and his band at the peak of their powers, performing to ever hysterical and devoted audiences in packed-out venues. The set list features six songs from ‘Vauxhall and I’ - including ‘The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get’, three from ‘Your Arsenal’, as well as non-album single ‘Boxers’ (and B-side ‘Have-A-Go Merchant’), the rare, perennial fan favourite ‘Jack The Ripper’, and an exquisite cover of Johnny Mercer and Henry Mancini’s ‘Moonriver’. ‘Introducing Morrissey’ is a beautiful visual reminder of the transcendent experience of a Morrissey concert, captured for posterity and now finally available on DVD.
