the draise train was at the dublin concert in sept. '95, and he thought that david bowie was crap. it was at that concert that apparently moz gave bowie a good kickin. he slapped him about the place saying "shove that your jungle music you your arse". what a concert.

With the exception of daize train who is too busy talking about himself in the third person, can anybody else who was at these Bowie/Morrissey shows respond? I heard that Bowie was upset because after Morrissey's set, throngs of fans up and left the venue after Morrissey's opening set and this caused a riff between the two.

Yeah draise train, we believe you considering Bowie hadn't even released his jungle album yet!

ALARCON- Yes, you heard right...I had a friend that went to one of those shows and he said that MANY people got up and left after Morrissey finished his set...the crowd was like 70% Morrissey fans. Someone else at Ticketmaster was surprised that people were calling up asking "Is there still tickets for the Morrissey show?" Personally I think Bowie should have known better than to have Morrissey as an "opening act"...anyone who knows Morrissey fans should know that we will follow him anywhere he goes...thats why my friend went. See you all at The Palladium.

i went to 2 shows on the tour london and cardiff -the first show the sound was very poor and the response was muted the second show was much tighter and the crowd was responsive-for a support act it was the tightest and best ive ever sen -bowie would never have sold out 4 dates at wembley if morrissey hadnt been the support act

Well, this was after Bowie covered "I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday", which appeared on his '93 album "Black Tie, White Noise". The Outside tour was in 95, I *think*. The album was released 95, that's for sure.

I remember when the Bowie tour came here to Newcastle. I was'nt a fan of Morrissey at the time but some friends were, so they bought tickets for the show. The concert was big news in Newcastle as it was going to be the opening 'attraction' at the newly built Telewest Arena.
However, Morrissey infamously backed out at the last moment. This led to the organisers offering refunds which, I'm told, a large percentange took up on. In the end they could'nt even give the tickets away. I remember a friend telling me how they were offering free tickets around the hospital where he worked, with most people declining the offer.

I was at the 95 gig at the Point in Dublin. There seemed to be a hard core of around 1000 Morrissey fans at the gig, with him starting his set as people were arriving. My friends and I heard Do Your Best and Don't Worry coming from the venue as we approached, and ran in to find he had started his set in front of only about 500 people (the point holds around 6000). The place was nearly full when Bowie took the stage to confound even his own fans with the desperate crap that comprised the 'Outside' album. Mozzer's fans left in droves, to be joined by large numbers of those who turned up for the Bowie gig.
