      I'm often amazed at some of the childish and reactionary rubbish that's posted here, but never more so than in recent days.

      "If the Morrissey of 1985 could have seen the Morrissey of today...he would have killed himself" - this absurd comment surely belongs with all those inane "reform The Smiths / re-recruit the mid-90s tour band" posts. People change, the world changes. To imagine that anything would - or even should - remain the same in perpetuity is a naive adolescent fantasy. Why do so many here persist in looking back rather than forward? If that's how you feel, stay home with your Smiths records and daydream.

      "This site... is a testament to an artist [David] loves" - Well, call me old-fashioned, but I always thought respect was a crucial part of love (and no, I'm not suggesting for a moment that respect is synonymous with unquestioning propaganda), but anyone with a brain can see there has been scant respect for Morrissey on this website for several years - though admittedly it's gotten much worse of late. Yet some posters bizarrely seem to think he should actually be grateful for all this relentless shit-flinging which is an un-fucking-believable expectation.

      There have been some peculiar arguments against disabling Front Page comments too. Notably that "the Forums don't work". Don't work for WHAT, exactly? The Forums are now the only worthwhile part of this godforsaken site. I can only assume that the subtext of such an argument goes like this: "I need to post my impotent rage somewhere prominent where I can delude myself that Morrissey might see it, so it can't be tucked away in a selected thread in the Forums".

      And what's with all those infantile "if Moz doesn't do X, then I'll do Y" posts? Because surely the implication is that the poster believes a) Morrissey will read the comment, and b) having carefully considered the poster's threat to burn his records, become a "hater" or boycott his gigs, Moz will immediately issue a statement reversing his position and extending the hand of friendship to David/Solo; anyone who seriously believes this will happen simply hasn't been paying attention over the last 25 years. How old are these people - thirteen?

      A couple more gems of ignorance:

      "[Morrissey & band] probably wouldn't be playing tonight if it wasn't for David and this site" - a breathtakingly deluded comment. Not that it needs saying, but Morrissey has a fanbase that both pre-dates, and is independent of, any website; to suggest anything else is really laughable. And as for the histrionic cries of "Censorship" and "Fascism"? It's absolutely your right to say what you like about him and it's absolutely his right to disallow admittance (see ticket small print). Isn't it more "fascistic" to expect that you can say whatever you like, but that Morrissey shouldn't be able to react, respond or criticise YOU in any way?

      David - Moz doesn't want you, doesn't need you, and since the majority of ordinary Solo visitors (ie not your hardcore cronies) are now spectacularly indifferent at best and profoundly disappointed at worst, why would you embarrass yourself by continuing to financially support this increasingly pointless endeavor? It's plain for even the most casual browser to see that this site is no longer a "testament to an artist [you] love" - it's a cesspit of hatred, ignorance, intolerance and bile, and a playground for trolls, propped up by the incestuous narcissism of you and your mod cronies. And the sane among us are all tainted by association.

      "Free speech, free speech, free speech...." Yes, but that's only half of it - because free speech, like power, is only valuable when exercised with responsibility, as Rupert Murdoch is currently learning to his cost. And of course pleading "Free speech" simply doesn't have any credibility while you and/or your cronies are blocking the IP addresses of your critics, so that they have to use a proxy to post (as I have just had to do). You sad, hypocritical disgrace.

      Ok mods, over to you to start attacking me (anonymously, of course)...

      Okay, all of this needs to stop. I don't like calling people out, but this time I see no other option. Whether Morrissey approved of this action last night, I have no idea (bottom line-he can exclude whoever he wants from his own gig), but it's quite scary that one certain Scottish "fan" has enough pull to have someone ejected from a gig. Fuck this. He posted his intentions of his Facebook page, so everyone can enjoy his comments:

      H*** C****
      David Tseng. Wank. Wank. Wank.
      05 July at 02:43

      H*** C****
      Heard this kaunt plans to go to the Scandinavian gigs.
      05 July at 02:46

      H*** C****
      WE just just need to make sure he doesn't get in.
      Tonight he is allowing posts attacking Julia to be posted. The censorship on his site is more wank than he is. That is a whole lot of big wank.
      05 July at 02:49


      Anyone that can see his facebook page can see this information. Like I said, I don't normally like people being called out, but this kind of scandalous behaviour shouldn't be allowed.

      If Morrissey does not apologise/explain himself, a campaign will begin to obtain a refund for David Tseng, which will be more costly to Morrissey than any of the blots on his career thus far. There are thousands of so-lowers who will gladly boycott the artist formerly known as Morrissey until David gets what he is owed - his concert fee back.

      Otherwise, we could raise money for David to sue Morrissey. He must have spent close to a thousand to watch Morrissey, only for his tantrum to result in ejection from the gig. Morrissey must be held accountable. Yes, he has the legal right to eject someone from a private concert; and David also has the legal right to sue.
      YES YES YES!! Let's start a revolution against Mozzer. He or us. If I had to chose I will naturally support DAVID T. He has given so much for Morrissey, and now he gets a kick in the arse.

      If anyone is brave enough to sell "FUCK MORRISSEY" T-Shirts, it would be a pleasure to buy them!!!

      Show Morrissey the red card. Show him that he cannot behave like Augusto Pinochet!!
      If you have the chance: throw something at him whatever it is! Beer, Handys, Cams, everything. Better: throw stable cards with "David Tseng is our hero" at Moz. Maybe Mr. Lachrymose will abandon the gig and future gigs will be cancelled too. Get him where you can only grab megalomaniac "popstars": When the money runs dry...

      I still can't wrap my head around this being true. I am trying to keep an open mind about it all but not sure. I am a HUGE Moz/Smiths fan from back in the mid 80s, and to this day love just about everything he has done. But this site is about HIM and and like 90% of the folks that post here (I am more a lurker), do nothing but just love him. Is he opposed to the negativity that can come up involving his work? Sorry, but that is part of being an artist. If the site was not called morrissey-solo.com would he have the same opinion? Maybe/maybe not, I don't know. The Internet is full of opinions as is life, I doubt that Morrissey can shut down the who Internet (but I bet he's tried).

      Is it because of the file sharing that is going on? Could be some of it. But again, every music artist is experiencing the same thing. Maybe it's some of the leaks of unreleased demos and tracks that surface from time to time and delight us all? Yep, he's missing out on some coin he could have possibly made IF he would have put together a quality "best of" or box set. I know I would have tripped over myself and shot my dog (if I had one) just to get my hands on it. But he didn't, he chose to released about 6 different "best of" CDs. I really do NOT need another version of Playboys, or Every Day is Like Sunday.

      The thing with my love (for lack of a better word) with Morrissey is that (especially lately) for every great thing he says or does he does one that is just hard to believe. I have be burned by him more than a few times (cancelled shows due to mystery illnesses), and a show that I drove 3 hours to get to to have him do a set list that was about 40 minutes long and saying but a few words to the crowd. BUT I still kept listening. Then I saw him in '09 and he was just amazing! Great voice, sound, chatty. One of the best concerts I have EVER been to.

      Then we get to his views of the record industry and a contract. Sad to say thing are different now, I miss the local record store, and holding records and CDs in my hand and all that romantic type stuff that makes us love buying music. But damn, things are just different now. Why did he re-release Everyday Is Like Sunday (amongst other singles) in the past couple years and then get all bitchy because they didn't sell. WE ALL HAVE THEM!! Why not do a proper single (even if a download ep, GASP!!) of something NEW with some quality B Sides (he did this back in the 90s a bit). Hell he could self release no problem (and I believe he has said as much).

      I know some folks that hate everything he has done in recent years, but I still dig most of it and listen to him almost daily. OK daily, there is no almost, but if you are trying to impress a record company he is NOT going to do it with the new songs he has played live this tour (The Kids & Action would be OK B sides, but the People are the same is unlistenable). What record company would even believe that the same person that wrote the lyrics on The Smiths CDs and Viva Hate wrote some of the recent stuff, half of it doesn't even make sense or carry a melody.

      UG!! I can't believe I felt the need to post this. Just disappointed in the whole thing of late. He was in the greatest band EVER, and I'm sure (if he lets me now) I will continue to buy his CDs (just no more best of cds or single with photos of him from 20 years ago on it).

      Oh well, I don't know the full story on why he hates the site, so I will shut up. Just can't believe, and find it sad, that he would have someone removed for making a site for folks to basically worship him. LOL! What I really think it comes down to is the money. TONS of his fans visit this site, talk about him, share his music and he doesn't get any money. What he does get is free publicity though, and for every one person that DLs a song that may have been put up illegally (which they shouldn't be), severally more will buy the CDs or pay to see him live, buy t shirts, etc.

      OK. I have to do some work, enough of this. Can we just talk about the shows and the music now?

      If you read the blog www.morrisseysworld.blogspot.com it seems to have encapsulated his cruelty, egomania and narcissism perfectly. Today's entry, for example, seems to epitomise all that's wrong with Mozza in 2011. Where once How Soon Is Now was a paen to his own suffering, now the words are used to mock the victims of his own spite. It sums up the crux of the problem - Morrissey is not a very pleasant person. This, of course, is not news to those he has screwed over the years. But now his spite is directed against his own fans (though not the millionaires who buy him OW first editions, seemingly), we're finally catching up.

      He is a genius, but he's so deeply flawed, the lights are in danger of going off completely. 'People are the Same Everywhere' is ghastly. It's Paul Young covering Slade. Morrissey, get a grip. Apologise. Become a better human being.

      you do realize its not the real Morrissey that posts there? Its a fake fabrication

      Review from danish paper Jyllands-Posten translated via Google Translate (so bear with us!):

      Morrissey let his aggressive band stepped on the highlights from his 30 year career. New songs mark new low for the charismatic singer.

      Opera, Copenhagen

      Morrissey

      Monday evening

      It was a bit of a tragedy that unfolded at the Opera on Monday night. In the most horrible moments you had to keep both eyes and ears.

      The black-clad protagonist Morrissey - former lead singer of the iconic rock quartet The Smiths and later manager of an interesting but somewhat checkered solo career - so passively by while the scene's relentless musicians reduced several of his otherwise immortal masterpieces of unimportant rvballe-rock.

      Worst things went out of Smiths classics as "Shoplifters of the World Unite," "I Want the One I Can not Have" and "There is a Light That Never Goes Out", which hardly becomes himself again after Monday's heavy-handed treatment . The tuxedo-clad musicians tore loose strings, but none managed to reproduce the dancing riff, which was the original guitarist Johnny Marr trademark. Instead, we often eaten with a criminal high, muddy and impersonal rocklyd, which sounded more of tribute band than competent soundtrack to a series of British rock history's best lyrics.

      Take just the title track from Smiths album "Meat is Murder" (1984), whose message otherwise still shipper at heart.

      The avid vegetarian Morrissey has previously abandoned a U.S. concert festival in anger because he could smell the barbecue, and most recently has managed the jar to make the Belgian Lokerse Feesten festival meatless. The opera may seem odd that the singer sloppy way through just the text and left too much to his rowdy mates.

      Needed bright spots
      Yes, there were bright spots in the 75-minute concert.

      Cover version of Lou Reed's "Satellite of Love" came from the heart, and although the 52-year-old Morrissey had trouble hitting the high notes and therefore chose to alternately scream and grunt their way through passages in gray classic "Everyday Is Like Sunday" and the sarcastic "You're the One for Me, Fatty", they were already rocked feature distance in guitar noise.

      And the band remained thankfully relatively passive in the drawling Smith-ballad "I Know It's Over", from Morrissey's desperate quest for love remains as the evening's most credible moments.

      Recent attempts to encapsulate the loneliness seemed more pretended. In "I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris" embraces Morrissey the French capital because only stone and steel to cope with his love. Cute, but unfortunately not very catchy.

      Bad news
      Morrissey is full of good songs, but as the years have been too far between the successful proposal.

      The latest, "Years of Refusal" (2009), is a disappointing affair, and some suggest that the upcoming 10th solo album will serve as a new artistic low point. In opera we got the mediocre news "Action is My Middle Name", based on an infant melody and sounds of an infinitely small when it is served along with the gold from the 1980s and early 1990s.

      It must Morrissey like to skip over when he on Wednesday evening gives a sold out concert at VoxHall in Aarhus.

      Never mind this site; that's yet another reason to close down the dreadful Google Translate.

      I was one of 30-or-so who were disappointed not to meet the man himself, having waited for an hour-or-so afterwards. It's his prerogative to avoid the public, of course, and more understandable given what we now know of earlier events.

      FINAL WORD: DAVID TSENG HAS FAILED.

      (all this time, he has done the fanzine and website to somehow get close to Morrissey but he has failed. the only thing he has done is get close to weirdo prescription drug addicts.)

      Kenzie, shut the fuck up, you know nothing.

      Peter, bored, Kewpie, abrahaM have all sucked on Shitseng's tit in some effort to be favored, added to a guestlist, or that Morrissey, in some way, might have taken notice and rewarded their efforts, but.....alas.........FAIL!

      And I'm happy about it. This website has always sucked and been worthless. A nest for sick people. I liked Morrissey without this website and I will continue to like him and his music WITHOUT this website.

      Keep creating threads about stupid, pointless things like, "i have a disease" or "Would you eat Morrissey droppings?" or "GIF wars" and I'll keep following Morrissey.

      David Shitseng is an embarrassment to the human population and IS a sub-species.

I too have been a long time fan and hope this site continues. I check M-solo once a week for new news and concert reviews and not much else. Thanks David for all you do for M's fans including myself!

      I wouldn't be surprised if this Julia idiot was involved in throwing off David T. from the venue. This rivalry ought to stop!!!

      David, hang in there, you are cool, mate.

      Fuck Morrissey and his ego. I say, this Julia can go to hell! And all those who kiss her arse.
      I am so very disappointed at Morrissey.
      Really disgusting behaviour...

      Just wait and see what happens when no one supports and promotes His Holyness anymore. This true to you site is a fucking joke!!!

      Very well said. It is a sad state of affairs. He is not the man i thought, David was hardly going to cause a problem,he had a balcony ticket and just wanted to watch the concert.
      Morrissey should really give it up now.
      With hindsight he should have bowed out with the birthday shows 2 years ago.

      Its sad to see someone you have admired for 27 years behaving like this.

      you know, I'm a long time user of this site, but it's pretty strange for someone to continue running it when the man it is dedicated to despises him as a human being. maybe this is how David financial survives, but I dunno, it might be in his best interest to close up shop and straighten out whatever (possible) mental issues persist.

      also, David, you announced via the front page that three songs from ROTT leaked early... and you're expecting a refund at the show? you're blacklisted, son.

      Most concert venues/artist security have a position of very little tolerance.
      It's common security practice that if you remove someone early on, you are avoiding a problem
      later. A vital aspect of security's job at these events is pre-planning - anticipating POTENTIAL problems (as well as dealing with unanticipated problems). The key here is risk, reasonableness, and foreseeability. From a legal standpoint, you see potential risks and then you look to see whether the venue took reasonable steps to prevent a reasonably foreseeable harm that could result from those risks. The fact is some concert goers believe that mayhem/ disruption is part of the excitement of attending an event with thousands of people, as such, some individuals will take it upon themselves to meet that demand. (throwing bottles, heckling, starting fights) Simply stated, acting dumb becomes more common and therefore more foreseeable. Venues face an increasing legal burden to anticipate more varieties of inappropriate conduct - and prevent them from turning into disasters.

      So, given: 1. The fact that David provides a platform for Morrissey-haters and hosts a site with so much animosity against Morrissey. 2. Morrissey wore fuck morrissey-solo.com shirts. 3. Many fans would agree with Morrissey - creating a situation, where a potential situation could arise between David and other fans, etc. - the venue security/personal security was VERY REASONABLE in removing David. In fact, had something happened because of David's presence...fights, crowd disruption, gig disruption- no need to even take it as far as Morrissey being hurt ( but look at the world we live in - people lose it for no apparent reason - and shoot up their kids and themselves, and others....)

      It was absolutely appropriate for David to be removed from the venue. He has no god-given right to be there. The venue and Morrissey's personal security were correct, and in fact would have been negligent in not removing him, given any number of potential risks to Morrissey, to patrons of the venue, and to David himself.
      Hurhur. This is the biggest load of shite I've ever read.

      Have you ever been to a 'rock and roll' concert or god forbid a 'rave up' with drugs and everything, or are you president of the local bowling club? I never saw this childish crap at a Ramones gig. It's cringemaking.

      Morrissey is behaving like a very silly boy. End of.
