Morrissey Announces New Album 'I Am Not a Dog on a Chain'

The inaugural Cruel World Festival lineup is more likely to make fans smile rather than frown.

Headliners include Morrissey, Bauhaus, Blondie, Devo, The Psychedelic Furs, Echo & The Bunnymen, Public Image Ltd. and Violent Femmes to name just a few.

Tickets go on sale to the general public, fittingly, on Friday, Feb. 14 (yes, that’s Valentine’s Day) at 12:00 PM PST. Prices start at $135.00 plus fees with payment plans also available at $19.99 down.

The fest is produced by Goldenvoice and will take place at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California on Saturday, May 2.
