Morrissey has returned to the States to finish up last year's postponed North American tour, and last night (Jan. 8), he warmed up for the trek in the least low-key way possible -- with a performance on the 'Late Show With David Letterman.' Is it just that we haven't had our morning coffee yet, or was his singing of 'Action Is My Middle Name' just ever-so-slightly flat in parts?

Morrissey's two-month U.S. tour kicks off tonight in Greenvale, N.Y., and runs through a March 8 gig in Portland, Ore.. Check out the complete updated itinerary here. And yes, we're pretty sure that was just us: Moz actually sounds pretty damn superb, and this tour seems like one definitely worth checking out, if it stops anywhere near you.
