Have seen him twice since dublin castle - once in the Savoy in Cork last January where he did a great job in a venue that still felt like a nightclub, and once last summer in the Marquee which was erected near Pairc ui Caoimh- likw a big circus tent, just a bit smaller than the point where he was absolutley outstanding. The atmosphere was amazing and the crowd where in full voice. He has so much energy and presence onstage it just blows me away every time I see him.
I'm a huge fan of the guy (missed his gig here in the 9th unfortunately)
Came on stage to there is a light did he ? You know Moz (and Jed Weitzman I think) are the listed in the acknowledgements on the cover of his latest album shots - (Morrissey - the Crumlin hardchaw)

He was the 'live music' highlight of my year. He was at the Wychwood Festival in Cheltenham. Tiny crowd and miserable weather but it was all very emotive.
Grrrrrrreat as the Celtic Tiger might say!

Re: Legend

His song "Factories" on the Morrissey NME compilation is very evocative. The missus was brought up in the same area and it brings back a lot of memories for both of us.

Yep, ditto what everyone has said. Really love him.
There's just something about his voice-warmth, emotional power, and he definately does have real stage presence, of the humble, honest kind.
You just want to hug him.
