    Manchester - O2 Apollo (Oct. 4, 2022) post-show

    Couldn’t agree more. I just got a vibe of awe from the crowd when he sung I Am Veronica or Bonfire of Teenagers. Everyone standing, at least the front half, all knew Knockabout World. It stood out to me because previous gigs in recent years have either been heavy on new songs and brought the...

    Manchester - O2 Apollo (Oct. 4, 2022) post-show

    Fantastic night, was a couple of people behind the front barriers. Massive shout out to the really friendly and energetic mother and son who’d travelled down from Glasgow after seeing the main man on Sunday! Cracking setlist, Moz was on excellent form, very chatty, crowd were ace and a great...

    Morrissey Central "IF THERE’S SOMETHING" (October 9, 2021)

    They put on a cracking show. Glad to see Morrissey supports it and The Smiths reaching a new generation.

    Rick Astley & Blossoms - Albert Hall, Manchester post gig thread (October 8, 2021)

    It was a bit of a role reversal I thought. The Smiths generation of fans standing at the front and the Blossoms generation on the balconies and towards the back!

    Rick Astley & Blossoms - Albert Hall, Manchester post gig thread (October 8, 2021)

    I thought they were brilliant. I’m a big fan of Blossoms anyway, but I think these two gigs must be the hardest they’ve had to work live and they did themselves proud. Astley was a great frontman and put his own spin on the songs and reached some of the high notes surprisingly well. They also...

    Strange/unexpected Moz references?

    Greg Davies’ new comedy The Cleaner has a Morrissey reference in episode three. His character is having a heated debate about veganism, Morrissey is mentioned and he says “Meat is Murder” is a cracking song, but he doesn’t take either that or “f*** Tha Police” literally.

    SER Twitter & YT: Morrissey Live In Birmingham trailer (May 21, 2021)

    I was at the Newcastle gig of this tour and there was plenty of life in the audience. It dipped ever so slightly with some of the new material (I expect it does for most artists), but a brilliant night to remember. I suspect the Birmingham one is the night where they consistently captured the...

    "Shoplifters Of The World" movie released (March 26, 2021)

    Is this available to watch in the UK in some way, shape or form? Can’t find it on the streaming services to rent.

    Leeds - First Direct Arena (Mar. 6, 2020) post-show

    What a strange post. Those that have said attended have mostly said it’s great. Some that went weren’t impressed, which is fair enough. Those that didn’t attend have had positive and negative opinions, whether that’s the new tracks or the setlist. To cite Carlisle Baz’s post shows the agenda...

    Leeds - First Direct Arena (Mar. 6, 2020) post-show

    I don’t think the ending was terrible, as he’d said his thanks and goodbyes before launching into “Half A Person”. I understand what Benny’s saying, though, it did seem as though he was about to come back on and the music was building up. Not sure if the fight influenced the decision or if they...

    Leeds - First Direct Arena (Mar. 6, 2020) post-show

    Brilliant night. Loved the setlist and Moz was on fine form. The venue was almost packed and looked like everyone was having a great time. I wasn’t keen on “Jim Jim Falls”, but looking forward to listening to it on the album. Moz gave a signed copy of the new album to a fan who’d travelled a...

    Leeds - First Direct Arena (Mar. 6, 2020) post-show

    There’s still another 35 minutes before the “film” begins, which has gone down like a lead balloon based on overbearing conversations from people asking when the support starts! Exactly. Not a hard concept to grasp.

    Leeds - First Direct Arena (Mar. 6, 2020) post-show

    Edited my post to mention the curtains a few minutes ago, old chap. As long as it’s full of people sat/stood where tickets were available to purchase, it’s packed out.

    Leeds - First Direct Arena (Mar. 6, 2020) post-show

    Just got in and stood near the front. Plenty in already and quite a few people outside asking if others are selling tickets, so guessing it’ll be a packed out show! The top tier is covered, though, so it won’t quite be full capacity. Nothing on the merch stalls caught my eye and I was quietly...

    Morrissey announces European & UK 2020 tour dates (Leeds, Cologne, Paris, London on sale Jan. 24)

    Got a standing ticket for Leeds this morning. I thought £51 was very reasonable; it was £75 for standing at Newcastle back in 2017. Looking forward to it!

    "California Son" enters at #4 in UK album charts; #1 in UK vinyl album charts

    Number 1 on the vinyl chart. It’s a shame that Spillers missed out, isn’t it? Great news for a great album.

    The world's oldest music store Spillers Records bans Morrissey albums

    Well, indeed, that’s what I was saying; I don’t think I’m missing the point at all. Morrissey generates sales and the shop not stocking his material will deprive them of sales. People vote with their wallet and go elsewhere. It’s only the shop at a loss.

    The world's oldest music store Spillers Records bans Morrissey albums

    It’s a very strange stance to take and opens a can of worms about who else you “ban” based on morals. It’s a bit of publicity for the shop, but what will it achieve? Morrissey does well in the vinyl charts, so not stocking his material will only deprive them of sales. Fans will go elsewhere and...
