O2 Arena show comes ladled with controversy

The bitch is back.

Morrissey made his London return over the weekend, playing a sold out solo show at the O2 Arena.

The singer made reference to his ongoing dispute with Harvest Records, with the band wearing their now trademark 'Fuck Harvest Records' t-shirts.

The bulk of the set was drawn from 'World Peace Is None Of Your Business', he told the crowd, "which was immediately deleted by a very clever record label".

When the arena began booing, he urged them to "let them know". Elsewhere, Morrissey's visuals utilised mocked-up pictures of the Queen, Prince William and Kate Middleton emblazoned with the caption 'United King-Dumb'.

Using graphic images of slaughterhouses during 'Meat Is Murder', Morrissey also spoke about the ongoing scandal surrounding supermarket chicken: "I was interested to read in the last couple of days that 75 per cent of chickens sold in the UK are contaminated and poisonous. I thought to myself ‘ha-ha-ha-ha-ha’."

Oh, Morrissey...
