Here's some news that ought to brighten your day -- assuming of course that you're suffering from a case of the Mondays like the rest of us and it needs brightening: A new date has been announced for Morrissey, whose previous date at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House at the beginning of November was postponed. Moz is slated to return to the Mile High City on Thursday, February 21, and when he does, it will be at the Temple Buell Theatre. All tickets for the previous show will be honored, and Ticketmaster will purportedly be reaching out with new seat assignments for the Temple Buell show.
