my eighth show and one of the best I've been to. The crowd was very appreciative and lively. Morrissey was in a good mood and lots of silly banter between songs. When he announced that Paris would be cancelled, he was quite apologetic and it was clear that the reason was the government decision, not his decision and also said London is still on. "Paris is cancelled because of.. Miley Cyrus" was a funny malapropism for "corona virus." He also said, in an overly exaggerated voice that made it clear he was partly joking, "I blame Macron!" More sincerely, he said something along the lines of "To our friends in Paris... I will see you.. sometime.."

The stage was quite a bit farther back than usual, with large platforms for speakers between the stage and the barrier. It would have been impossible to reach out for a handshake, believe me, I have long arms and I tried. At one point, he joked "If I step down there [points to platform], I will.... die."

A number of people on the barrier held out records to be signed, to which he said "I am impressed" (I guess at the records they had) and signed just one. The stage was so far that the record had to be passed to Morrissey and back to the fan by security. Probably the stage distance and set-up is typical for the venue and didn't have to do with spreading illness worries, since Morrissey shook some hands in Leeds.

I believe the acapella intro was part of Wooden Heart by Elvis, but not sure. He sang "because I don't have a wooden.... head" suggestively.

Some lyric changes that are new to me at least:

TJIFA: something like "I won't die with a smile on my face after all"

WPINOYB: "next time you vote, don't repeat the process."

WBB: "I've got the wedding bell blues."

He also gave a particular person on the barrier, not sure who, a vinyl of the new album and threw about five of the Far Forward t-shirts toward the front also.

Overall, a really nice night. See you in London.
Thank you for posting. The general feeling from anyone who was there was very positive and they enjoyed the setlist which was the same as Leeds. Morrissey seems to be really enjoying it also and sounds fantastic from the few clips posted. Thanks again and enjoy London.

Reported sighting of Mr Chard pushing and kicking his was to the front again. What is it with this old folks home crawler? Oh, and G, come on, change the blazer and quit the nice gentle chap routine, we’ve seen you several times now.
 

Viva Mozza

You're the one for me
Just coming back from the venue. Great show with Moz in good spirit, very talkative, he seemed to enjoy himself. Setlist same as in Leeds but with HSIN at the start + IBEH. I don't need Twin and Devil in the setlist but the rest was fine. I'm really sorry for those who wanted to go Paris but I'm glad all went well with the gig in Cologne.

Back in the hotel now. It was actually an wnjoyable night, also the fact that it happended against all odds. That said, it wasn' the flawless.

The opening was strong: HSIN, IBEH, Wish you lonely and Jim Jim falls, lots of energy here.

The encore was alsoagnificant: Half A PERSON followed by Jack The Ripper. Never heard Jack The Ripper as an encore, but it really works. There was the usual shirt toss, but nothe much in the way of showing his upper body because of the smoke effects.

Other highlights for me were That Joke isn'the funny anymore, Seasick, I changed my pleasure, 9nice I saw the river clear, and even Home is a ? and Chain Gang. twin sounds better live than on the recording.

But it stings to hear no tracks from V8va Hate, Bonar Drag or VanUphall & I. God the man should know his classics. And he should move on and forget the covers.

He was in good voice throughout, the best thing about his concerts. And he was chatty. I guess it has already been mentioned that Paris is now officially canceled. He also said this was the last bigger concert in cologne for a while, nan will become effective as of today. He obviously hates the measures. A bit sdouble for someone who easily cancels concerts himself.

Where have hairdresser, why don’t you find out for yourself and break up the family gone from last year ??? Songs worth the admission alone...

setlist is tragic yet again smh

They have gone missing, and it really is a shame. See my own comments about the show.

Life is never kind
I hope he washed the t-shirt between shows!!
Probably a new one each night? I don’t know...but I want one of those!! That tshirt is very cool ?

I guess it’s to be expected, but does anyone agree he looks much happier and more comfortable here (as opposed to Leeds)?

Another abomination of a setlist. I've never seen a more selfish performer who is so vastly out of touch with the needs and wants of his audience.
lol, you want greatest hits? nobody wants greatest hits... This isn't a Fleetwood Mac concert....

Looks like a f***ing garage.
It's industrial style. That makes a good atmosphere for a concert, not like any of these soulless arenas. And on top of it, it has just the right size for an intimate concert. I feel so privileged that I had the chance to be there.

Can someone explain why Morrissey's hair looks the way it does? Why is this happening? Why does it look like Joe Dirt?
That hair is the same as being photographed eating Santa Maria style tri tip. It's betrayal.
Why no fade? Is it a 90s white trash trip? It's kind of jacked up. It doesn't have to be this way.
