  • What the hell happened tonight. Morrissey kicked ass as usual but the crowd was so lame. It was general admission and I didn't even get pushed.. I expected to come out with a sweaty tshirt.. what is that all about.. people, if you are gonna go and stand like mummies, just stay home and wait for the dvd to come out.. there are too many posers out there, please all of you that go on Monday or Tuesday make some noise, whistle, clap ... do something... don't stand around like a bunch of mummies.. If you people have to wait till the second verse to recognize the song, you shouldn't even be there.. I was very dissapointed with the crowd but Moz put on a stellar performance. Posers need not reply..

  • I thought tonight was beautiful. I thought the crowd was pretty good. If you wanted to see lame you should have been at the Anaheim show. Moz was on target again. Hey, how about that special shout-out to TSATH. That had to make them smile. My only gripe was that Now My Heart Is Full wasnt played. Other than that it was sweet. Oh, I also liked the part about his reference to Kill Uncle. To, die for. Speacial shout out to my lads up in Rolly High. Keep Keep N' Up!!!

  • It was the first time I have heard it live. Great encore. He was extremely talkative and tried to carry a conversation with F'n Julia and she is an idiot. Kept on handing her the microphone and she just sounded like an idiot. Lot more stage rushers tonight. I think about 10 made it on. Oh also the line about "if you would like to hear a song from Kill Uncle", the audience cheered and he returned by saying "then go home and listen to it there", something along those lines. Anyways, great show and I will be there on Monday. Oh yeah I almost forgot, celebrity spotted, David Carrusso (I think thats how you spell it), I accidentally referred to him as David Duchovney. HAHA. He just looked at me and said "hey ya", How gay.Cheers

    • I didn't see David Caruso, but I did see Juliette Lewis (I don't know for sure, but she looked a little "botox-y" to me) at the bar. Also, I must report that Lucas Haas was there in the crowd, and he is a total wanker. In the ebb and flow of things in SRO, I got pushed into him. I didn't realize it was him until after I made the obligatory "sorry, I got pushed" apology. He just looked at me as if I had attempted to ass rape him with my poster. Sorry man, but a mediocre film career does not exempt you from the physicality of General Admission. Anyway, The show rocked, and there was a definite Saturday night vibe happening. I also talked to Julia outside. She seems nice enough. I asked her how she manages to do what she does, and she really didn't have much of an answer aside from something along the lines of "I just do". I didn't push it, but I think I made her a little nervous when I told her that I intended to follow her around to see if she had the inside track on the ingress/egress of the band. She reminds me of a skittish little deer.I mean that in the nicest way possible, of course. Anyway, long after the show was over, I lingered around the side exits with rest of the autograph seekers. Apparently Moz has use of Wonder Woman's invisible jet, and is long gone before the house lights even come up, Boz apparently beats it quick as well, but we did get to meet the new keyboard guy. He was very obliging, and signed autographs, posed for pics and made small talk for a few minutes with the group. Then the Elefant guys came out...I'm sure they're great guys, but they kind of acted like the bags of buttons they were handing out were the holy grail of souvenirs...(not that I didn't greedily snatch up a bag of them myself). The security guard then came out and said that everyone was gone from the building. He didn't look very sincere, so most of the group hightailed it over to the other side, where coincidentally Gary and Alain were exiting. Man, are they the absolute be all and end all of nice guys. They looked tired, but they signed autographs and posed for pics, all without even the slightest hint of being put upon,or inconvenienced, not a sigh or an eye roll or anything of the sort. They really made the night perfect for me. If only bacon wrapped death fryed in its own filth wasn't being peddled outside...

      I can tell you some of them:

      Second song is "Bubble Gum" by Brigitte Bardot

      During last night's intermission, "No One Can Hold a Candle To You" by Raymonde was replaced with "Colorado Springs" by Sack

      The last song before the show starts is called "Charade"- it's a Mercer/Mancini song from the movie with the same name. Many people have recorded it over the years, everyone from Andy Williams to Harry Connick Jr. I'm unsure which version they're using. Still hunting it down.

  • Stop whinning about Now My Heart Is Full. That song blows live and almost made me puke last night when he played it. Tonight you got to see Hand In Glove instead you poor thing. I saw Moz in vegas and thurs/fri at the wiltern. As for tonight I was sad about missing it until I read the kill uncle comment. What a faaaaaaag. If he were to play Mute Witness, Our Frank, or Sing Your Life he would blow the roof off of the joint. Beleive me I saw him in 91 2 times and he blew the roof off of the joint with every song on that tour. Of course that was when he was not a stiff old man who no longer moves around in the way that used to drive audiences nuts back in the day. And whats with the cover song that puts everyone to sleep. We dont need a cover song when he already has a ton of new material. He should have played that on the last tour instead. And speaking of Kill Uncle, does anyone else notice that the new song train intro to Everyday Is Like Sunday is a complete rip off of My Love Life. The first time I heard it I thought it was in fact My Love Life. It is the exact same chords, you can sing along to it. Oh and off the subject please stop complining that the crowd was lame. I know how dissapointed you are that no one got stabbed at this show. After all we go to the show to fight not to hear the music right? After getting all of my complaints off of my chest about this tour so far, I must say that all in all I am actually happy with the tour so far. I am especially happy with the absence of 94-97 material (except for the pathetic insertion of Now My Heart Is Full). The only song I would like to see brought back from this era is Nobody Loves Us. I thought the keyboard player sounded great. Everyday Is Like Sunday sounds amazing with it. They need to speed up A Rush And A Push to its proper tempo. Irish Blood sounds great live. And the Smiths songs of course as well as Such A Little Thing, and I know its gonna happen someday were all awesome. I think that the changes to Jack The Ripper are pretty gay. Sing it right Morrissey, like in the studio version. Thank God no Meat is Murder and no Mexico. They ruined the music in crashing boars, it was much better on the last tour. Yes I know I am bitching alot. But since Morrissey decided to bitch about the Kill Uncle album I felt it necessary to say my peace. I understand that Morrissey is just upset that he cannot match the brilliance of the Kill Uncle Album and doesnt want to remind himself by playing songs from that era that was so great. At least he still likes some viva/bona/arsenal/smiths material. Because it was these songs and Irish Blood that made the concert worth going to.

  • Songs: All the same, except Headmaster was added once again and Now My Heart is Full was taken back out. Instead of IBEH as the encore, it was second to last. When Moz came out for the encore, he played Hand In Glove! Lots of energy, great show, can't wait until Monday. Who gave Morrissey that Cry shirt? He seemed to have liked it, what did he say?

  • I hardly comment, but I read them quite often. I love morrissey, but all you fans are complete idiots. You are the most annoying fans of any artist that I have ever seen. You go see every show on a tour and then complain about him not changing the set list. Heres a solution: only go to one show! We all know he hardly changes around the set. And yes Morrissey is getting older, but everyone does so get over it. Its never gonna be like it was in 91/92, times change. So stop being pricks and let people enjoy morrissey how they like, you don't own the rights to bieng a morrissey fan.

  • I totally agree with Navin's comment above! This sight is full of far too much negativity! Not constructive or considered criticism, just sheer bitchiness.

    Morrissey puts out a superb single (IBEH) and some people complain that it smacks too much of Southpaw Grammar. Man, it is a GREAT single - strong, memorable, vitriolic and sung with all his customary conviction.

    He goes on tour - and people complain about the set list. As Navin says, the solution is to go to one show!

    He does a video - tries to get some publicity - people complain that "their" Morrissey is becoming too popular!

    He does an interview - oh, but he didn't say the right things, not as witty this time, moan, moan, moan.

    Oh, COME ON PEOPLE - he is currently doing some of his best work in terms of the music and all you do is complain. Drop the nostalgia trip - this is NOT the Kill Uncle tour, nor will it ever be again. He will not stop getting older. But hopefully he will continue to produce excellent music that befits the stage of his career he's at.

    He is working harder than ever right now for your pleasure - so get off his case!

    I hope you don't think we're ALL idiots Navin, some of us agree with you!

  • very impressed with the stage rushers tonight. my favorite was the young man who jumped over 2-3 people including the divider, only to make it on to the stage so he could brawl with the security dork... and he eventually got his shirt ripped off- luckily he made it over to give moz a grab.
      one young lady was also able to give moz a kiss on the hand.
      and the one girl who couldn't make it onto the stage, so she just stood and held onto his leg for as long as she could ha!
            so what does happen to those people anyhow? after seurity pulls them away?

  • I'm only 23 years old, but for heavens sake, did these idiots at the top need to be standing up for the whole f*cking show?

    I was happy about the fact that I was sitting next to 30 and 40 year old folks. You can appreciate the show without having some dumb f*ck high on weed or drunk trying to hug you or ask you stupid questions like, "Do you know who that guy singing is? Ha haha."

    If I wanted to stand amongst the general admission crowd, I would have bought those f*cking tickets. Instead, we had a few jokers, standing up like f*cking mummies, blocking everyone's view who wanted to sit down and enjoy the show.

    As far as Morrissey's performance, it was awesome as ususal. It was a little weird not knowing the words to his songs but that won't last long. Also, it's obvious that he's getting older, he's a lot "clamer" on stage now, but he talks a lot more it seems and he got the audience with that "Kill Uncle" Joke.

    The Elepahnt band was pretty good too.

  • First off, seeing Morrissey in person was a thrill I will not soon forget. I couldn't believe I was standing in the same room as the man who wrote the lyrics to "How Soon is Now." Regrettably, as Oscar Wilde so articulately demonstrated, life imitates art far more than art imitates life. Anyway, during the show Thursday I heard a song that I hadn't heard before (or I had but was preoccupied with the echoes of my mind) and it had a lyric along the lines of, "I've had my face dragged through shit, and no I didn't like it all that much." Does anyone know the title of the song? I would be in the debt of anyone kind enough to lend a hand. Thank you.

  • I first became a fan of Morrissey at age 16, which is now 14 years ago. The crowd at the Saturday concert were older folks for the most part, late 20’s at the youngest, maybe 30’s for the most part, some even older I noticed. Frankly, I think we all enjoyed the concert. We all had fun. When you get out of puberty the pushing and shoving gets old. It was fun to see the people get up on stage, go through the non-sense of the pot smoker. There was an idiot in Loge who was smoking a pipe and the security guards had a green light on him for about five minutes and he was like “thanks, man, for the light”. But, honestly, the crowd was very diverse, but largely calm. Morrissey brings out a lot of loners, introverts, the forgotten bunch with big hearts. But, we all love Morrissey, so more power to all of us. Kudos to Morrissey for his humor and encouraging the girls to come on stage. We really connected to Morrissey the man when he chose to communicate a little with the audience. He was good, everything was enjoyable. I was glad to be able to attend.

    Reading some of the gripes about the "tour" please remember all these dates are basically a warm up for his spiritual homecoming on 22/05. You can't expect too much when he's got one eye on that. (ONLY KIDDING)
    He'll have a few pints down Ancoats to celebrate us winning the cup (sorry saddoes, his new b-side only confirms what us clued-up always knew). Then it'll be on. The only show worth knowing about.

Everything from the crowds not being into the shows to God forbid 40-somethings enjoying themselves. I've been a Morrissey/Smiths fan since he/they arrived on the Manchester scene.

    I don't know who that twat was that says the Saturday night show was lame, but he must not have been there.

    There was such a crush of people that my sunglasses got smashed in my shirt pocket. That has never happened to me before.

    Oh..did anyone else see the guy get the broken nose when he tried to get on stage? Landed on his face and nice blood puddle on the floor between the stage and the barrier.

  • I celebrated my 57th birthday at my first Morrissey concert. What a thrill!! You people who complain about the concert are absolutely nuts. I thought the concert was fantabulous. He is sooo good. He is the ultimate performer with his stage presence, excellent lyrics, fantastic voice, and wonderful melodies. His humor is great too. How can anyone gripe about that? I think it's nice to see how he's evolved over the years. If he stayed the same it would be so boring. I think all fans should encourage him and be thankful his is still performing. If he quits performing we will all be SAD. By the way I've been to a lot of concerts including Hendrix, Joplin and The Stones, and I think Moz is a better all around performer.
    My 19 and 20 year old kids also thought Moz was awesome.
    Sitting in the loge I too was bummed by some rude people. How can people go in and out several times for food and drinks while Moz is singing? I was behind the idiots in AA who were standing. They were drinking, high on pot, and generally acting like asses. I missed several minutes of the precious concert because of people getting food and drinks, and the idiots who were asses. Luckily I had an aisle seat so I could stand in the aisle when they were blocking my view, but other people weren't so lucky. If you want to drink and eat that much STAY HOME.
