But really, Los Angeles is going all-out for Morrissey’s forthcoming show. For the first time ever, the Hollywood Bowl will change its menus to all vegetarian for Morrissey’s performances, all for the icon who’s used his voice to “raise awareness for many social issues” in his own unique way.

“Morrissey Day honors the man who put the 'M' in Moz Angeles, an icon whose music continues to touch and uplift countless people across the globe,” said Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez. “Morrissey uses his voice to raise awareness for many social issues while 'in his own strange way,' always staying true to his fans.”

We may not be in LA, but we’ll likely celebrate Nov. 10 as Morrissey day, just for the heck of it.
