Morrissey has revealed plans to return the United States this fall for a nationwide tour. The former frontman for The Smiths will kick off the tour in Boston with a performance at the Citi Wang Theatre on Friday, October 5. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $35 to $100, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Telecharge.

With no new album to promote, fans can expect Morrissey to perform a set packed with greatest hits from his legendary catalog. Though, the singer is also promising to sing new unreleased songs. Morrissey’s last studio release was 2009’s Years of Refusal. Last year, he released a new greatest hits compilation called Very Best of Morrissey.

The October show will mark Morrissey’s first in Boston in over three years. Along with the show in Boston, Morrissey will make several other stops in New England including the Palace Theater in Waterbury, Connecticut (October 6), the State Theatre in Portland, Maine (October 15) and the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts in Burlington, Vermont (October 16).
