On August 22nd 2011, Morrissey, via the website, asked for fans attending his concerts on the USA 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 USA 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.

On November 28th 2011, during the song 'Everyday is Like Sunday', at the concert in Pomona, Morrissey took a red rose from a member of the audience and sniffed it. There is Youtube footage showing this.

There were a number of other concerts played on the USA 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 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 no Youtube footage exists to confirm this. Four more concerts were then played in Brazil (3) and Peru (1), but NO roses were handed to Morrissey.

On March 17th 2012, on the very last day of Morrissey's South American tour, in Bogota, Columbia, Morrissey plucked a white rose from the audience during the song 'You Have Killed Me.' Under the red lighting, the rose looked red, thus confirming a prophecy on MorrisseysWorld, which said the white rose would turn red when the blood runs (the 'blood runs' being the song 'You Have Killed Me'). This act signalled the start of a phenomenon that Morrissey has labelled 'BLUE ROSE SOCIETY'.

The reason that the phenomenon has been labelled 'BLUE ROSE', is because blue roses, just like green carnations, are not natural flowers. Wilde's followers were known as 'Green Carnation', Morrissey's are 'BLUE ROSE'.

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

Followers of Morrissey should wear either a red, white, or blue rose to his concerts, and throw them to the stage. It has also been said, that the song 'TROUBLE LOVES ME' is the song of the BLUE ROSE SOCIETY, as it is an anagram 'LOVE MT BLUE ROSE'. 'Trouble Loves Me' has not been performed by Morrissey since 2006, so if it IS played, it would be extra special.
