Day 1490b - Happy BRS Day

Father Brian, the father of the BRS President Kyle, has posted a comment on FTM to remind us all that October 10th was the date that Morrissey first accepted and wore a blue rose. It happened in 2012 at Radio City in New York.



It is only right that October 10th becomes BlueRoseSocietyDay. To celebrate, I will post some reminders of our journey so far:





















































Today would also have been Kirsty MacColl's 56th birthday.



Tonight Morrissey returns to the stage in Slovenia, and although I don't know of any BRS members present, at the following concert in Budapest on Monday, both EARS and Kerry the Cocktail will be present with roses in hand.

    1. Thanks Manc. Not got off to the best of starts as my flight has been delayed. Feckin Ryan air!
      Currently sat drinking a double expresso but maybe I should have had something stronger.

  4. Such special memories - thank you, Morrissey. The Trouble vid with the rose gets me every time. And what lovely synchronicity for BRS day to be on Kirsty's birthday. Looking forward to hearing about Budapest - hope you finally made it there safely, Ears.

  6. Why is there a 'b' following the day in your last few posts? What can it mean.

    1. Ratty's writing posts that are partially showing up in RSS feeds but have been reverted to draft by the time you click on the link. It's frustrating to keep seeing the opening few lines of a post that's already gone.

  7. What if M mentions Ms McColl in Slovenia? Coincidence, of course.

  8. Happy Blue Rose Day to all of you and a special one to Ears and Boozey who are going to attend the concert in Budapest. Kirsty was a special friend for Morrissey and surely he always got a little tought for her. Thanks Ratty for the post and the beautiful pics. Ciao.

  9. I was there that night when Kyle gave Moz his first blue rose. And I got up on stage for a hug during the encore. Epic night.

  10. Happy Anniversary to the Blue Rose Society! Hope all of the fans who have been lucky enough to attend the concerts on this tour had/have a good time. With all the nude photos posted recently all over the internet of Justin Bieber on his vacation I thought for sure Astraea would have been busy posting them here. Hope she had some pleasant viewing.
