A bit lazy yes, I still find this great, or at least keep me motivated to check here what happened the previous night, which the never chnaging set list did not really help with.

Anyway, I was about to start the same thread, and have started putting the list together. Any help to keep it updated / fill gaps will be much appreciated :

Need to add:

- Well I Wonder
- The Queen Is Dead during Maladjusted (if you want to count that...)

And these, though non-Smiths songs:

It's not a Smiths song, but at Hiroshima 27 April 2012, Morrissey quoted John Betjeman's The Last Laugh (many thanks to sweetness522 who helped me to find the source):

Now if the harvest is over,
And the world cold,
Give me the bonus of laughter,
As I lose hold.

Thanks for the above clues. Seems like it was the 12th October New York Terminal 5 gig, with part of a line from 'Northeners' by Victoria Wood quoted in the middle of Speedway - "Fog, smog Sitting on the bog Cobbles in the morning mist Park Drive Dead at forty-five From a back street abortionist".

And the ones we have listed are:

Enmore Theatre / Reel Around The Fountain
Opera House / Frankly, Mr. Shankly
Tilles Center for the Performing Arts / That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore
House of Blues at Showboat Atlantic City / I Won't Share You
Sovereign Performing Arts Center / Asleep
Capitol Theatre / These Things Take Time
Heinz Hall / Mama Lay Softly On the Riverbed
LC Indoor Pavilion / Miserable Lie
STAPLES Center / Unloveable
