Singer-songwriter Morrissey has made final adjustments and additions to his 2009 North American and European tour. Initially scheduled for only a handful of U.S. dates, the outspoken and iconic performer will now be in the country for more than 30 performances, followed by an additional 40 gigs in Ireland, the UK and Europe.

The U.S. run begins February 28 at the Mizner Park Amphitheatre’s Centre for the Arts in Boca Raton, FL, and wraps April 15 at Sunshine Theatre in Albuquerque, NM. Other highlights for the extensive tour include a March 14 concert at Warner Theatre in Washington, DC, a March 29 performance at the new House of Blues in Boston, MA, and an April 4 set at Aragon Ballroom in Chicago, IL.

Morrissey has also plotted three separate shows in New York City, during which he will visit some of the city’s historic concert halls. The first gig is slated for March 21 at Bowery Ballroom, followed by a March 25 set at Webster Hall and a March 26 performance at Carnegie Hall.

Ticket onsale information for the entire tour is available through Morrissey’s Web site. Manchester, England-based rock group The Courteeners will provide support on nearly 20 nights of the U.S. tour.

The upcoming jaunt is supporting the musician’s tenth solo album, “Years of Refusal,” which is slated for a February 17 release in the U.S. and Canada. Morrissey recently signed a deal with U.S. record company Lost Highway to distribute the album nationally, while Attack will handle the release in the UK.
