A pair of veteran British pop idols, Tom Jones and Cliff Richard , will serve as the opening act on separate shows during alternative rocker Morrissey 's upcoming U.S. tour.  According to Billboard , Jones will support the outspoken ex- Smiths frontman at a May 10 concert at the Los Angeles Sports Arena, while Richard will be the opener for the trek's final show, on June 21 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

An interesting tidbit worth pointing out about the oddball concert pairings: Both Jones and Richard have been knighted by Queen Elizabeth II , an honor she's not likely to bestow on Morrissey, who is known for his blatant disdain for the British royal family.

Morrissey's U.S. tour is scheduled to kick off May 7 with a show in San Jose, California.
