I think I must be, absolutely, a total sex object.
Morrissey peered into the darkness of the huge crowd gathered for his closing set at Cruel World Festival in Pasadena on Saturday and muttered facetiously, ‘My God, you’re still here?”

There are, of course, different ways to take this. The notoriously sardonic singer might have wanted everyone to go home so he could shed the torture of his tuxedo and slip into his pajamas, too. Or maybe this was his way of gloomily suggesting the crowd make some noise.

But turn that around and look at it from the fans’ point of view. Two years after Cruel World Festival was first announced, and then twice delayed, of course, they were there to the bitter end of the former Smiths singer’s set.

As headliner, Morrissey didn’t disappoint. He showed up – always a good first step for our Steven. The festival agreed to his no-meat-at-the-food-tent terms. And in his hour-long set to wrap up the day, he sounded terrific.

Highlights included such solo hits as “First of the Gang to Die,” “Everyday Is Like Sunday,” and “Suedehead,” and a scattering of Smiths’ tunes including “Never Had No One,” “Half A Person,” and “Sweet and Tender Hooligan,” which closed out his set.

Thank you for this, nice audio . Does anyone know if there is any pro shots stuff?
I meant to say on previous posts, I like this new guy, from Cuba (even if at times he looks like Robbie Williams with a hairy top lip)
I think he is very talented, and I like his verve. I think he can probably write some good tunes, given a chance- which is exciting , that means we have Alain, Jesse, the Cuban fella , Boz (?) as well as the other one. the name escapes me, as does any interest in any of his music, generally speaking.
Im worried this 1hr set list thing is gonna continue.I hope not. Tickets aren't cheap and an hr seems "tight".
Sparks who are way over M do about double that, I think Bryan Ferry does as well.
I don't know about the entire concert, but there was a documentary that was being filmed on the fest, which is what the cameramen at the front of the stage were for.

6 pages of after-show comments!? More proof of what happens when a performer foolishly jettisons a significant chunk of his fanbase. Can Mr. "Great Replacement" make a comeback and woo those fans back? Not likely.

Out of interest and maybe @Famous when dead can answer (on a postcard)
What is the traffic like on this site, compared to say 2006 or 2012 ?
Its just I get the impression. its shrunk quite a lot.

You get FWD do a (linder) sterling job.
You get the hardcore (some of whom seem to have more than one account)
You get ones like me who pop on time to time , then you get the ones that pop in a few times a year
It seems to me, the traffic has fallen off alot. Now, there are loads of M fans who don't come on here.
Still, its an indication of general interest
Maybe Im wrong about the traffic, just curious (orange)
a lot of people made accounts years ago but almost never comment,when theres an anniversary you see all these names that you have never seen before and thats a good indicator.im a half hour in the morning to see if anything has happened overnight and a half hour at night to see if anything has happened during the day.

This site is hardly representative of his fanbase, and that's a good thing.
