About the gig-

The Sounds That History Saved Presents Viva Morrissey – Based in the Holy City of Manchester, Morrissey’s birthplace, and home of his former band The Smiths, Viva Morrissey are highly regarded for the authenticity and accuracy that they bring to their performance.  Viva Morrissey’s concerts are based on Morrissey’s present-day solo shows, which makes their live shows markedly different from those of tributes to The Smiths.  The Viva Morrissey 5 piece 90 minute live set includes Morrissey’s best known and most loved solo material alongside many of the classic Smiths songs. The Small Wonders– a 3 piece knocking out an impressive array of punk /new wave and indie classics in a witty and irreverent fashion. Named after the classic London indie label that gave us early records by The Cure and Bauhaus etc.  A great kick off to a cracking night for inners and outers alike. Bella Barton- boho singer songwriter with a nice relaxed vibe and a hint of out thereness.. and very fetching pink hair. She has a nice yielding tone to her voice. The songs are drifting modal affairs that have tons of appeal. Not bog standard singer songwriter fare at all, thankfully. Jazzy stoned vibes, dolorous cool delivery…reminds somewhat of Marine Girls era Tracey Thorn. Educated at the Brit School and living proof that esoteric talent can be trained if not actually taught.

VIVA MORRISSEY - A sincere homage to Morrissey

Viva Morrissey are the world’s only tribute to the present-day Morrissey.

Formed in the summer of 2007, and based in the Holy City of Manchester, Morrissey's birthplace, and home of The Smiths, Viva Morrissey are highly regarded for the authenticity and accuracy that they bring to their presentation.

Viva Morrissey's performances are based on Morrissey's present-day solo shows, which makes their live shows markedly different from those of tributes to The Smiths.


The Viva Morrissey live set includes classic Smiths songs, alongside some of Morrissey's best known and most loved solo material.

Having been a successful recording artist for over 30 years, Morrissey is rightly regarded as a legendary figure in the music industry, as well as a true cultural icon, therefore a tribute to his entire career (so far) was long overdue.
