Morrissey’s Become A Real Drag On Japanese Tour

When a musician tells you he’s “big in Japan,” you can usually take it with a grain of salt. But Morrissey, the gay king of melancholy pop, actually is huge in Japan. He just finished the Japanese leg of his world tour and, as Mozzer fan/Queerty reader Gwen reports, “he sounds great, looks hot, has an amazing setlist and has been greeted very appreciatively by fans, who love his lyrics and music.”

We wonder how the crowds are reacting to Morrissey’s guitarist and co-songwriter, Boz Boorer, who’s been coming out on stage in drag every night. (Moz has introduced him as “Gaynor Tension”) Above is a photo from the April 23 show at Zippo Tokyo.

      Is that Antony Hegarty on the far right?

      Well, even if he isn’t “officially” out, I doubt he’s fooling anyone anymore! Here’s hoping this is a sign he’s more fully embracing his queernes in his older age. :-)

      I thought he was saying he’s asexual. Maybe he was just being an ass. *shrugs*

      All I can say is- I hope I am surrounded by 4 hot younger men in speedos when I’m 53 years old. Moz is a lucky guy! ;) Kinky as he ever was, too.

      Morrisey has become more handsome as he got older. Must be all of that fish, chicken, beef, pork, and… just kidding. He really is handsome.
