    I recorded the show, so I can post a definite set list tomorrow when I'm not so tired, but there weren't any surprises. Off the top of my head, and NOT in order:

    How Soon is Now
    November spawned
    Irish Blood
    Rubber Ring
    Shoplifters
    Everyday is like Sunday
    Crashing Bores
    Don't Make Fun
    Now My Heart is Full
    I Like You
    Let Me Kiss You
    First of the Gang
    You Know I couldn't
    Bigmouth Strikes Again
    Such a little Thing

    There is a Light

    That's all I can think of right now. Amazing show; I think only one person got on stage.

                              Mainly positive vibes from this gig so far it seems?

                              If there’s one song on the YATQ album that can do it, I think I Like You could be the Christmas Number 1. Anyone agree? Is it due to be released as a single soon? It really has across-the-board appeal; it’s very catchy, has a great rhythm, infectious for dancing, and it also has that sensitive-hesitant-relationshippy-type element associated with not a few no. 1’s, as well as a quaint upbeat sense of humour and some memorable phrases. That’d be a nice thing.

                              Still on voting, kinda, but of a slightly different kind, somebody might get a kick out of this:

                              A PRAYER TO AFFLICT THE COMFORTABLE - MICHAEL MOORE(from Stupid White Men)

                                      Dear Lord (God/Yahweh/Buddha/Bob/Nobody):
                              We beseech You, O merciful One, to bring comfort to those who suffer today for whatever reason You, Nature, or the World Bank has deemed appropriate. We realize, O heavenly Father, that You cannot cure all the sick at once - that would surely empty out the hospitals the good nuns have established in Your name. And we accept that You, the Omniscient One, cannot eliminate all the evil in the world, for that would surely put Thee out of a job.

                              Rather, dear Lord, we ask that You inflict every member of the House of Representatives with horrible, incurable cancers of the brain, penis, and hand (though not necessarily in that order). We ask, Our Loving Father, that every senator from the South be rendered addicted to drugs and find himself locked away for life. We beseech You to make the children of every senator in the Mountain Time Zone gay - really gay. Put the children of senators from the East in a wheel chair and the children of senators from the West in a public school. We implore, Most Merciful One, just as You turned Lot’s wife into a pillar of salt, that You turn the rich - all the rich - into paupers and homeless, wiping out their entire savings, assets, and mutual funds. Remove from them their positions of power, and yea, may they walk through the valley and into the darkness of a welfare office. Condemn them to a life of flipping burgers and dodging bill collectors. Let them hear the wailing of the innocents as they sit in the middle seat of row 43 in coach and let them feel the gnashing of teeth that are abscessed and rotted like the 108 million who have no dental coverage.

                              Heavenly Father, we pray that all white leaders (especially the alumni of Bob Jones University) who believe black people have it good these days be risen from their sleep tomorrow morning with their skin as black as a stretch limo so that they might enjoy the riches and reap the bountiful fruit of being black in America. We humbly request that Your anointed ones, the bishops of the Holy Roman Catholic Church, be smitten with ovaries and unplanned pregnancies and a pamphlet about the rhythm method.

                              Finally, dear Lord, we call upon You to have Jack Welch swim the Hudson he has polluted, to force Hollywood’s executives to sit and watch their own movies over and over and over, to have Jesse Helms kissed on the limp by a man of his own gender, to make Chris Matthews go mute, to let the air - quickly - out of Bill O’ Reilly, and to turn to ash all who are responsible for those who smoke in my office. Oh, yes, and unleash with a fury a plague of locusts to nest in the toupee of the Senate Minority Leader from the great state of Mississippi.

                              May You hear our prayers and grant them, O King of Kings, Who sits on high and watches over us as best you can, considered what screwups we are. Grant us some relief from our misery and suffering, as we know that the men You shall smite will be swift in their efforts to rid themselves of their misfortune, which in turn may rid us of ours.

                              With this we pray, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy-Spirit-Who-used-to-be-a-Ghost, Amen.

He looks and sounds fabulous. He seemed to be in a good mood (whatever that means) which was refreshing and thrilled me to no end. He was kind, witty, and generally lovely and loveable. I won't soon forget.

                                Christmas No. 1s have more often than not been surprises. Who knows what'll happen? But did you know that, when Morrissey was 18, he was, apparently, working as a tax collector in the Civil Service (as a back-scrubber some might say – same difference!) Square as that sounds, someone’s gotta do it: forces of containment are probably a good idea in principle. Scrap the whole set-up tomorrow, and would any new structures be much different, maybe new names, new faces but?… Far as I know, many artists were/are public servants, and when they move on from Government employment, they often possibly become even better ‘public servants’. Anyway he was, - imagine! - which means that he played a short little part in afflicting the comfortable himself, maybe distributing letters such as these:

                                This letter from the British Inland Revenue Department was reprinted in
                                “The Guardian” 27/9/03.

                                Dear Mr Addison,
                                I am writing to you to express our thanks for your more than prompt reply to our latest communication, and also to answer some of the points you raise.

                                I will address them, as ever, in order. Firstly, I must take issue with your description of our last communication as a "begging letter". It might perhaps more properly be referred to as a "tax demand". This is how we, at the Inland Revenue have always, for reasons of
                                accuracy, traditionally referred to such documents.

                                Secondly, your frustration at our adding to the "endless stream of crapulent whining and panhandling vomited daily through the letterbox on to the doormat" has been noted. However, whilst I have naturally not seen the other letters to which you refer I would
                                cautiously suggest that their being from "pauper councils, Lombardy pirate banking houses and pissant gas-mongerers" might indicate that your decision to "file them next to the toilet in case of emergencies is at best a little ill-advised.

                                In common with my own organisation, it is unlikely that the senders of these letters do see you as a "lackwit bumpkin or, come to that, a "sodding charity". More likely they see you as a citizen of Great Britain, with a responsibility to contribute to the upkeep of the nation as a whole.

                                Which, brings me to my next point. Whilst there may be some spirit of truth in your assertion that the taxes you pay "go to shore up the canker-blighted, toppling folly that is the Public Services", a moment's rudimentary calculation ought to disabuse you of the
                                notion that the government in any way expects you to "stump up for the whole damned party" yourself.

                                The estimates you provide for the Chancellor's disbursement of the funds levied by taxation, whilst colourful, are, in fairness, a little off the mark. Less than you seem to imagine is spent on "junkets for Bunterish lickspittles" and "dancing whores" whilst far more than you have accounted for is allocated to, for example, "that box-ticking
                                facade of a university system."

                                A couple of technical points arising from direct queries:

                                1. The reason we don't simply write "Muggins" on the envelope has to do with the vagaries of the postal system;

                                2. You can rest assured that "sucking the very marrows of those with nothing else to give" has never been considered as a practice because even if the Personal Allowance didn't render it irrelevant, the sheer medical logistics involved would make it financially
                                unviable.

                                I trust this has helped. In the meantime, whilst I would not in any way wish to influence your decision one way or the other, I ought to point out that even if you did choose to "give the whole foul jamboree up and go and live in India" you would still owe us the
                                money.

                                Please forward it by Friday.

                                Yours Sincerely,

                                H J Lee

Both were awesome, despite some of the whiners comments about the Nashville show. I'll be at my hometown show, Atlanta, tomorrow and just by chance MOZ AND BAND take a look at this I wanted to let them know how great it would be to hear Alsatian Cousin, Break up the Family, Found Found Found, or even Interesting Drug.

                                  Just got back home--long drive. The show was really lovely in every way. The theater was beautiful, and Moz's voice was totally stunning. It was my very first time seeing him live, and it was really an incredible experience--only slightly marred by the three wildly gyrating girls in front of us who were less interested in Moz than in making theatrical facial expressions and groping each other. It's strange, every other time I've seen someone famous in the flesh, even someone boring or obscure who I'm completely indifferent to (Woody Harrelson comes to mind) it's been kind of jarring, and the person has seemed really garish and out of context. When Moz walked on stage last night, though, it seemed like the most natural thing in the world. It was thrilling, of course, but I don't think I would have been terribly shocked if he'd walked out into the seventh row and offered me a pear and asked me how my studies were coming. I don't think I fully realized until that moment what an enormous comfort he is to me.

                                  Some amusing comments (largely paraphrased, of course):

                                  After introducing the band: "and me, I'm just tagging along trying to make some friends."

                                  Introduced Julia as "a constant guest, and a constant guest always warms the heart, even mine, which is made of wood."

                                  Changed The More You Ignore Me lyrics to "when you sleep I will creep into your bed like a bad debt that you can't pay, take the difficult way and give in to me."

                                  Made some mention of this being his last tour, which I didn't quite hear, to boos from the crowd, and then added "so they tell me."

                                  "This touring outfit is entirely vegetarian. No meat of any kind, animal or human, with the possible exception of Laura Bush..." followed by growling/biting in the air.

                                    Yes.....I was 'that' person shouting "Manchester" during the intimate quiet moments between every song :)

                                    Being British and living an hour and a half south of Louisville I was well excited to find he was touring, especially so close. I originally intended to see him in Nashville, because it was nearer, but the tickets were expensive and the available seating was crap. Anyway, after reading the Nashville review, I'm glad I didn't go ;)

                                    I have to say, that the Palace Theatre was the perfect venue to see him. A refurbished old theatre built in 1928, there was plaster and merble everywhere, along with plenty of velvet. It reminded me of old cinemas in Britain [sigh].

                                    Everything was low key and friendly, including the security and the bar staff. A great 'affordable' bar and splendid toilet facilities, for me, makes for a great night out :) We were even allowed to take our drinks through to our seats......marvelous!

                                    Well done everyone for looking great.......indeed. You were an older crowd, trendy for the most part and I think most of you were genuinely there to see Morrissey, rather than wanting to 'be seen' to be there. I think you know what I mean when I say it makes a refreshing change to be out and not be amongst the 'Abercrombie & Fitch'/'Old Navy' clones.

                                    Morrissey was just as I expected. A great set, great sound and plenty of humour. A good choice there, with the opening Smiths number, the whole concert was perfect. Thanks for not mobbing him people!

                                    One huge downside though....the bar closed early, and before the concert ended :(

                                    Oh!.....and one last thing.......where did most of you go afterwards? I fired into the bar opposite and sorted meself out with cheap'er' beers [$2.25], and expected to be amongst dozens of other fans......but outside became a ghost town in a matter of minutes! Did I miss something, or did you all go home to bed?

                                    Blimey, it was like a night out in Bowling Green!!!

                                    I have to say that this show was beyond words. Moz was truly divine. From the very first note to the last it was an incredible show. I was blessed to share the show with some lovely people that sat next to us. We had front row pit seats and were able to touch Moz a number of times. I found myself in tears before the show, a few times during the show and then after the show.

                                    I can't believe how quickly the show seemed to past. When he exited before the encore I thought surely it must have been another shirt change, but that was it... It was too short, though only because I could have stayed all night, the next day, the next week and beyond... Can there ever been too much Morrissey?

                                    I agree with the person who called him an Angel. He is indeed. I still can't find the words to really articulate the experience, and yet I know it is one so many others have shared.

                                    I find myself getting teary as I write just remembering last night. It was just about 24 hours ago that I exited the Louisville Palace. What a night, what a night.... I have listened for 17 years and adore him in the core of my heart. It was the best night of my entire life, without question.

It was so hard being in the same city as Morrissey and not knowing where he was after the show. I just wanted him to know that I am here and that I am a happier person because he exists.

I never dreamed that Morrissey would come to Kentucky so when I saw Louisville on the tour schedule I was at Ticketmaster.com the second they went on sale. It was a fabulous show that words could never describe!

                                        Morrissey said during the show that he hadn't come to Louisville "because you never asked". If I thought he would have come here, I would have asked 20 years ago!!!!!! Thanks again! It was a truly amazing show and I'll always treasure the memory.

                                            I was so excited to find out a month ago that Moz was doing a concert in Louisville. I was absolutely speechless! I found out by going to Ear X-tacy and trying to scout out a friend's band flyer when I found Morrissey's! I got on the cell phone then and there to get my tickets.

                                            I got there finally, bought TV Shirts, watch PETA, and when the doors opened, stayed in my seat til Moz hit the stage.

                                            I was absolutely in awe of him. And I was so happy that I got to see Morrissey for my first concert. It's a dream come true!! I couldn't have begun to ask for a better night and literally lost my voice from screaming!! Especially when he began to sing "There is a Light That Never Goes Out" which is my all time favorite song cause I relate to it so completely much.

                                            It was such a great night. A night I will always remember so perfectly. Morrissey's the best!
