Former fans of Morrissey are to stage an anti-racism party to coincide with the singer's forthcoming gig in Manchester, in protest against his support of the far-right leader Tommy Robinson.
Earlier this month, the former Smiths frontman criticised the "shocking treatment" of the English Defence League leader, who was jailed for 13 months for being found in contempt of court. Morrissey also repeated his support for the rightwing party For Britain, set up by the ex-Ukip candidate Anne Marie Waters.
The Manchester-born musician is set to perform at Manchester's Castlefield Bowl on 7 and 8 July. The "One Nation Under A Groove" protest party will be held at the nearby Revolution bar in the city's Deansgate Locks from 3pm until midnight on 8 July. Entry is free and organisers said Morrissey fans were welcome to attend before or after the singer's concert.
