Morrissey was introduced by Claire Danes and Aaron Eckhart and performed People Are the Same Everywhere, Satellite of Love and Irish Blood, English Heart.

Morrissey recently released his life story in the book ‘Autiobiography’ by Stephen Patrick Morrissey.

Morrissey ‘Autobiography’ topped the UK best sellers list in October selling 34,918 copies in its first week.

Here is how Morrissey describes Manchester, the city where he grew up

“More brittle and less courteous than anywhere else on earth, Manchester is the old fire wheezing its last, where we all worry ourselves soulless, forbidden to be romantic. The dark stone of the terraced houses is black with soot, and the house is a metaphor for the soul because beyond the house there is nothing, and there are scant communications to keep track of anyone should they leave it. You bang the door behind you and you may be gone forever, or never seen again, oh untraceable you.”
