      good gig, somewhat effete and exhausted but nonetheless a circular swan of delight

      I left after the disgusting violence committed by the security.
      Boz to his credit looked suitably upset, unlike anyone else. Shame on anyone who participated or turned a blind eye, you are vile pigs.
      I complained to the manager immediately who tried to sympathise but said they had nothing to do with him.
      I went to 5 dates on the current tour, this was the worst by far.

      Oh get real... The security were ridiculously heavy handed but they were just carrying people out not hitting people. it was like an old fashioned moz show. and it was the very best of the 3 i saw on this tour.

      "welcome to my world" were moz's first words...

      Moz was good tonight, but not great. I took a friend who hadn't seen Moz since Vauxhall and he was surprised at the size of gap between the great moments (I know It's Over, Speedway) and the songs that need working on musically.
      It was very bloody short again, was that as short as Brixton last night? Don't correct me.

      Great moment when some geezer got onstage and was almost being held upside down but still reached out to try and get a handshake. So close.

      fake post. Because, if you ever been to M gig lately, "It was very bloody short again", you will detect the standard M gig lenght. In best part, probably this is your first M concert.
      Also, "I took a friend who hadn't seen Moz since Vauxhall and he was surprised at the size of gap between the great moments (I know It's Over, Speedway) and the songs that need working on musically." There is no logic in your comment. If you friend is M live gig expert, where was he for the last two decades??? Now, move on, son, there is burger shop nearby your shack.

      Good gig. He played Come Back to Camden, The Kids a Looker - but didn't play Art-Hounds. He was on good form and said they had a good night in Brixton - inside the venue. And thanked the crew and everyone for coming to the tour. He also said he had a revelation.....he doesn't want a record contract. I've been on all the tours since 1990 and I think the band sound better on each tour - and Morrissey's voice seems to get better with age. A great gig - the highlight for me on this tour was Hop Farm - Dublin and the London dates were all fantastic.

      I liked it but not as great as Brixton. I too think the security was quite harsh, there will be footage on youtube of people being carried away quite violently... but nothing compared to what's happening right now in Clapham!

      Yep agree good but not great, as mentioned quite a few attempts to get on stage. David Walliam's and wife in attendance in one of the boxes the Mrs informs me 'slimmer in person' interestingly !

      Loved 'I Know Its Over'-not sold on 'Scandinavia' yet

      M asked the crowd if they were 'sagging' halfway through

      More Royal jibes, something about seeing a dead deer and Wills n Kate being around

      FOTGTD as an encore was great

      Great gig, I thought, well for me anyway. Secuirty were rough, definitely, but not absolutely horrifically so I thought compared to some shows I've been to. The invasions during Speedway, although disrupting my favourite song, were poignant to watch, and his response after they'd sorted out the trouble during the pause saying "Now where were we?" made me laugh. I hope everyone's ok who got ejected by that security.

      Most exciting (to me) news is that he told us he's stopped looking for a record deal and decided he doesn't want one. Left it more or less at that, except sacrastically answering a couple of questions about wether this is the end of his career. I hope this means he'll release his own, rather than not at all!

      There's was no Panic played, or Art-Hounds. What I remember being played was: (no particular order) '...Paris...', 'There Is A light...', FOTGTD (encore), 'Speedway', 'I Know It's Over', MIM, 'One Day Goodbye...', EDILS, 'I Want the One...' (opener), 'The Kid's A Looker', 'Action...', 'Scandanavia', YHKM, Satellite of Love, 'Come Back to Camden', 'Ouija...', IBEH, '...Fatty...'.

      Quite talkative I guess: the thank-you's at the end to everyone were very sweet to listen to, but the most memorable comment for me was before Meat is Murder, where he said words to the effect of whilst wandering backstage at teh venue earlier he 'came accross a shot baby deer, so knew Will and Kate had been here', and carried on to 'find bear-traps packaged ready to send to Canada, so knew the Queen had been here'. There were a few funny remarks about the venue, which he still seems very fond of. And also about the car not starting properly during '...Paris...'!

      1990? I think we all missed that tour? Please enlighten!

      By the way. I agree with everything else you have said, but for me Stoke stole the heart of this tour. It was a fantastic night that one of us saw coming, Shit town though (sorry Stoke - but it's true)

      Amazing gig this one. Morrissey was in great voice and the music sounded good but maybe not quite great. Of the new songs The Kid's a Looker and Action were really good. I didn't enjoy I Know It's Over as much as I thought I would and Alma Matters was a bit flat. Otherwise really great finish to this tour.

      I was shocked to hear Morrissey is not releasing any more records. At least that's what it sounded like - he said something about not wanting a record deal anymore. Does anyone know word for word what was said?

      Most amazingly Morrissey conclusively proved he is either the author of the www.morrisseysworld.blogspot.com website or is in on an in-joke and does know the author. How? Two things. Firstly the blog pledged he would strip for the first time this tour and then he did at the next show, which nobody would have predicted (Morrissey's habits are usually pretty constant in a tour)

      But even more hilariously, Morrissey began his concert with the precise words Justin Bieber used on his only world tour. Both Bieber and Morrissey began their gigs with the words 'Welcome to my World' (the name of Bieber's album is 'My World')

      ---This when the most recent tour diary on the blog focuses almost exclusively on Morrissey's enjoyment of Bieber's live DVD covering music off the 'My World' album.

      I'm now convinced and I find it hilarious that he's mocking himself so humorously with that blog. I wonder how many more unsubtle clues he'll have to give before the people on this website realise he's playing a game?

      Does anyone seriously believe this choice of words is a coincidence?
