Apparently united only by Britishness and mid-1980s career explosions — Morrissey as singer for indie untouchables The Smiths; punky ex–Generation X frontman Idol as a solo artist — this incongruous bill pairs special guest Idol’s swaggering “Rebel Yell” with the headliner’s signature misfit mope. Judging by single “Spent the Day in Bed” and recent live teasers, Morrissey’s imminent Low in High School album, while acknowledging his lifelong love of distinctly unhip ’60s female crooners such as Cilla Black and Lulu, incorporates throwback synths, some glam-rock strut and even grungy guitars. But it’s his instinct for earworm melodies and semi-sardonic lyrics that will carry this Morrissey record, just as all those before it. The paranormally age-defying Idol’s polished, arena-intended hard rock will surely morph the Bowl into a massive sing-along — but the backstage banter between him and Moz remains hard to imagine. Also Saturday, Nov. 11.
