Btw, now officially all concerts with over 1000 people have to be canceled in Northrhine Westfalia, for an unlimited time. Morrissey yesterday mentioned something like that too, saying that the Cologne gig was the last that got through (or something like that, I can't remember his exact words). So if the Cologne gig would've been today it would've been canceled. So we really had lots of luck it still could take place and was such an amazing show.

The gods are with him. I need them to stay onside for the rest of the week.

I can add to this most of the songs that were played before the videos started.

It started with some classical music, this was definitely one of the pieces that was played:


Norma Tanega: You're Dead
Kirsty MacColl: You Know It's You
New York Dolls: Vietnamese Baby
Hotlegs: Neanderthal Man
David Bowie: Karma Man
Lou Reed: I Wanna Be Black
Nathan Abshire: Shamrock
Patti Smith: Piss Factory
Ice Cube: Death (Yes, really...)
Ricky Wilde: I Am An Astronaut
Betty Davis: Shut Off The Lights


I might have missed one or two.

Thank YOU soooo much! :thumb: :thumb::)

Yes, I agree with you 100% that we were lucky that the gig happened at all. And I think that most people n the audience, and Morrissey as well, realized it and that's why there was such a celebratory atmosphere yesterday. Some people traveled long distance to attend this short European tour, and know because I met some on the train today (from Cologne to Paris). And for the German in attendance, coming from various parts of the country, they also knew to enjoy live music while they still can.

When Moz came back onstage last night for the encore, he said "To give is the reason we live", he didn't do the Frankie Vally cover with that very same title, but launched into Half A Person instead. But he referred to the joy that live music brings in the lives of people, and possibly to that joy being denied now due to the measures taken in response to the coronavirus epidemy. It was in appropriate thing to say in my opinion. I live in Brussels and I know it is only a matter of time before our government implements similar measures. And we have experienced similar bans on large gatherings before, so I know the feeling of relief and joy when we can finally resume our normal lives.

Energetic??, I wasn’t there, but I doubt it,
Well, everything is relative of course. It's not like 1991 / 1992 anymore of that is what you are referring to. Try to see it in comparison to other, more recent gigs. Morrissey was into the performance last night and I know because I was there.

I must have been very tired after the show last night and my eyes skipped some lines in my notes. I forgot to list after the Candy Darling clip:

Baby Workout by Jackie Wilson

“I’ve got your bag...” (sending a bag back-and-forth) clip from b&w comedy film.

does anyone know the preshow song (not video) that is sung by a powerful female voice like Shirley Bassey or Timi Yuro but in a foreign language (German, I think?)

before the encore he gave away one Vinyl-Album und some T-Shirts to the audience and said directly afterwards the „To give is the reason I live“ line, so it had nothing to do with corona.
