Morrissey to return to US for Firefly festival

British singer MorrisseyMorrissey, who canceled half of his US tour last year due to illness, will return in June for the Firefly Music Festival — which will also feature a mystery headliner. Firefly, which was launched in 2012 in Delaware in a bid to create a major music festival on the US East Coast, on Tuesday announced a lineup that also includes Nashville rockers Kings of Leon, alternative pop-rockers The Killers and hip-hop icon Snoop Dogg. Morrissey, the famously dour singer whose poetic vignettes of life's woes have won him a cult following, canceled a month of US shows last year due to illness. A staunch animal rights activist, Morrissey demands venues not serve meat.
