    Morrissey comes to Greece for a unique show on Friday, December 5, 2014. The concert is part of Morrissey's "World Peace Is None Of Your Business Tour" and will take place at Faliro Pavilion (Taekwondo).
    Morrissey is provocative and influential; he is a star and - at the same time - an anti-star, adored by the public. He goes beyond the singer/songwriter status as his persona and his art have a special impact to the public.
