      How on earth did anyone stay awake during this?! What a snooze fest.

      Even Morrissey looks bored to death these days.

      Money money money. Poor poor man.

      Nice shirt. Glad to see the collars are back. Great set list. I've not heard Jack live yet - roll on Manchester.

      Totally disagree- this is a good mix of old and new. Some of us haven't been to every single previous concert and haven't heard everything live which is why it's great that he varies it up.

      Two weeks to Manchester, the only UK gig (and as we know we can interperate the 'unlikely to play the UK again' quote) but regardless of the set-list, I'm really looking forward to seeing Moz again-having not seen him for 4-5 years-purely because of the lack of quality albums and going through the motions shows-which is probably what it will be in a fortnight. We should accept that the guy is touching 60 years of age- the energy of the Smiths are early solo gigs no longer survives,yet, Morrissey is still the most curious of artists and over the next days there'll be the occasional 'what a great night' comments....in general, we're all on here commenting because we care.

      How brave of you anonymous. Although I can probably guess which little shit you are. Keep spouting your drivel. How is calling me a closeted homosexual an insult? Anyone who uses that term meaning for it to insult someone has some real problems.

      I was there last night with my parents; we all really enjoyed it. No smiths songs other than MiM though but I wasn't too fussed. Moz and the band looked/sounded great and there was a really nice atmosphere; everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. The venue was absolutely fantastic, really small and intimate with a tiny standing area at the front. I was right at the back - it was mostly sold out but there was a strange row of about six seats in front of me which were empty (which was actually really great for me - I jumped down there so was able to dance/wave my arms about/sing along without annoying the people next to me). All in all definitely worth making the trip to Norway; Bergen is beautiful as well!
      I can't figure out how to post a pic from my phone (slightly hungover, a little too much red wine last night after the show) but there's a couple on my Instagram if anyone's interested - @mycatmorrissey - feel free to have a look.

      They just love to whinge, that's all. You have to understand slagging off Morrissey every breath he takes is the only thing getting most of these twats up out of bed.

      i have been to over 15 Morrissey gigs and this Setlist doesn't inspire me at all. The world peace songs are not great live. I found the Leeds gig a couple of years ago a bit of a yawn fest with a WPINOYB heavy set list.

      Fine if he doesn't want to play Smiths songs but if so drop the worst one. Watching that slaughter for the uptown time doesn't appeal nor does the almost obligatory crap that he plays on screen before he comes on.

      I used to Love Morrissey and his ability to surprise but sad to say, since Quarry, he has been going steadily down hill.

      For the first tour since 1995 I won't be attending due to this and the ridiculous prices.

      It's all gone a bit sour where Morrissey is concerned for me.

      I was at the show and found it pretty good. Would anyone know if it was recorded in full?

      Even if the setlist is not to your liking, it changes throughout the tour so just relax.

      Have-A-Go Merchant was never a major track, but it's pretty cool to see it resurrected here. Guitars sounded right on.

      I'd rather see The Monkees. At least they'll be playing new songs off their critically acclaimed new album. In fact I am. Eat that Mozzer who berated them on Hangin' With MTV back in 92'. He should cover I Know What I Know instead of Let Me Diss You for the thumpteenth time!

      Hmm. Some of us said, those songs are related with recent incidents. Ok, that's true up to some extent. ;)

      But how about this: "(regarding yesterdays show) any words for Nice or Dhaka attack, Istanbul or Kabul bombings ?" Yes? No? Who knows? World peace is our business? Just singing boring songs including few words about peace, police violence? :straightface:

      I know, we cannot blame him. He doesn't have to play "the brave one." But frankly, if he's still insisting on peace things, he better say something. Think of MIM video. His beloved, Mr. Sam, can shoot a video about issues. Too many loses, too many innocent people are dying. Besides those poor animals.. I'm sure it won't be too hard to shoot a 2-3 minutes video. :rock:

      Why does he feel the need to advertise selling out minor venues in places like Bergen where curious locals will go and watch almost anyone who's kind enough to make the trek up over mountain & up fjord to entertain them? I'm sure most people there weren't Morrissey 'fans' and couldn't give a toss about setlists, he's just a vaguely notorious 80s singer and a bit of a change from an a-ha gig, but obviously not as good as an a-ha gig.
