THE HISTORY OF 'BLUE ROSE'

On August 22nd 2011, the website MorrisseysWorld.blogspot.com, asked for fans attending Morrissey concerts on his US tour, to wear either a single red rose or a single white rose.


On September 1st 2011, this request was re-iterated and it was stated that it was in honour of Oscar Wilde, because of the roses being a recurring motif in his work. It was also stated that Wilde lives on today in the artiste Morrissey. 

On October 16th 2011, MorrisseysWorld gave instructions that, "When Morrissey leaves the stage after the end of the set, he will pause prior to coming out for the encore. During this period, you should throw your rose on to the stage."

On November 4th 2011 on MorrisseysWorld, it was explained that the 'Secret Rose Society' was to mirror Oscar Wilde's 'Green Carnation', a secret society formed by Oscar Wilde for his followers, who would all wear green carnations to his performances without anybody knowing why. 

On November 14th 2011, Morrissey's tour of the US and Mexico got underway, with a concert in San Antonio, Texas, and a small number of the audience were reported to have worn roses, but none were thrown to the stage.

There were seventeen more concerts played on the US and Mexican tour and at various concerts, some members of the audience wore white or red roses, but very few were thrown to the stage.

On February 24th 2012, Morrissey started his tour of South America and again MorrisseysWorld gave instruction to wear a red rose or a white rose and to throw it to the stage. Two concerts were played in Chile and although it is rumoured that roses were worn, none of them made the stage. Four concerts were then played in Argentina, three in Brazil and one in Peru, and once more, it is said that some of the audience wore roses, but only one white rose was rumoured to have been thrown on stage and there is no video evidence on Youtube.

On March 17th 2012, Morrissey performed the last show of his South American tour, in Bogota, Columbia. During the song 'You Have Killed Me', Morrissey reached into the crowd and took hold of a white rose, a photo of which can be seen on MorrisseysWorld, although it looks like a red rose because of the lighting. The video can be watched on Youtube and shows clearly how Morrissey purposely leans into the audience to grab the rose.


Followers of MorrisseysWorld have vowed to wear roses at future concerts and to throw them to the stage, just before the encore, IT IS WHAT MORRISSEY WANTS.

Followers of MorrisseysWorld have been labelled 'Blue Rose', as blue roses, just like green carnations, are not natural flowers.

Blue roses have come to symbolise mystery and longing to obtain the impossible. Blue roses also represent unrequited love.

Followers of MorrisseysWorld should wear either a red or white rose to the concerts, but it has also been said, that if the song 'Trouble Loves Me' is sung, then blue roses should be thrown to the stage.

BLUE ROSE is not a limited club, it is just the name given to the MorrisseyWorlders who wear a rose to the concerts and throw them to the stage.
  Trouble loves us all.
