Hopefully he will play more than 90 min. tomorrow at the Staples, maybe he will give us 10 more min. and thats ok with me.
Hey people, please behave like people, lay off CrystalGeezer, after all, it is a human being that you are hurting. stop the bullying.
anybody has a couple of tickets, or one ticket for Saturday's show at Hollywood High? let me know.

Ten more minutes with you well I'd rather say no-thanks some people see no worth in you o and I do.

You f***ed up Amie. Everybody knows who you are, what you look like, knows you are schizophrenic, and no one is ever going to let you get close enough to him to give him anything. You have no one to blame but yourself.

Oh f*** off you useless twat. And log in.

I thought of something else. During Speedway he kept emphasizing in an exaggerated way "I NEVE SAID, I NEVER SAID..." He never technically said he's...

read this and tell me he doesn't respect his audience moron.

THR: You’re about to restart your American tour. You recently said that your show at the Brooklyn Academy of Music was one of your favorites ever. What are the elements that make for a great Morrissey concert?

Morrissey: The general structure of the venue is quite key, but it's the audience that make the night. At live concerts, people show themselves as they really are, which isn't generally allowed in our constitutionally rigid societies. The love and intensity from the crowd is quite incredible for me to witness. It sets its own terms, so therefore the success of any night doesn't entirely depend upon my own efforts. I turn up in order to watch the crowd, whereas it's generally assumed that they turn up to watch me. The only difference is that I don't have to queue, and I don't get groped by venue security.

- marred.

Well first off, Im no moron haha.
If he does in fact respect his fans, he has a funny way of showing it.

For instance we waited outside a venue for two hours after a show and he couldnt take the time
to stop and sign or shake a hand. He quickly gave us a wave and rushed into a car and
pulled away.
Giving his audience a one hour show when hes got a HUGE back catalog (needs to take some
hints from the cure who not only play for three hours but play the songs YOU actually want to hear)
But I guess if I were him and saw all of the rubbish on so-low I would run from my fans too.

Im not knocking the guy, personally I think hes bloody brilliant!
I was really just trying to make a point of what hostile and ridiculous people
a lot of the trolls in this forum are.
All the verbal abuse is funny to me. You calling me a moron further proves my point.
Good luck!

Thank you Morrissey for an incredible show & triumphant return to the stage!! I'm looking forward to the rest of your west coast tour!! :D

When you all get done being so rude to Morrissey & each other, can someone help me post the pics so they actually show up & full-size in the post? I've done it before, but I'm not sure what I'm doing differently this time.

Thank you!

Show was incredible. His voice was perfect, struggled to find a note within the first three notes of singing but figured it out quick and sang the rest beautifully and strong. Some of the banter touched on the Jimmy Kimmel thing, some self deprecation, accepted all the presents handed to him, was handed a get well card and opened and read it and stuck it in his pocket right on stage, even took a teddy bear or something and stuck it in his back pocket like the glads for the duration of the song. It's a bit of a blur, more will come back to me as the day goes on, but my impression was that he was very fit and strong and loved being there, it even seemed like he didn't particularly want to leave the stage after the encore. The band wore faded red Superman shirts. The background was a matador standing like Stuart Sutcliffe. He took off his shirt as usual during LMKY and didn;t look particularly anemic to me. :)horny:) There's a new song in the intro, a folk song that went on for an eternity, the chorus being "My country tis of thee blah, blah for the people blah, or something." :o I was too nervous to pay attention but it literally lasted 10 minutes. And in the clips was a shot of Pasolini's gravestone, then a clip of the Salford Lads Club with young boys in front shot with an 8mm camera. No music during these. Eerie and awesome. Please, Please, Please was particularly haunting and beautiful, I cried. I always cry but it was sung PERFECTLY. Started the show in a "camo chic" green shirt, then pink, then pink again after the shirt toss. He was full woman last night and beautiful. Lots of invaders, all very respectful. some got in some kisses on the cheek :thumb: At one point I had massive agida when he was bent over giving hand shakes and there were people behind him and people in front, he could've fallen into the pit area sooooo easily, there was no barrier. The security was particularly tight. I snuck into the pit once and was booted for lack of a bracelet. It seems, with these kind of things, that the key is to be friends with one of the Moz thugs, becuase he was going nto the crowd and hand selecting people to be allowed into the pit area without a ticket, so it was by the end of the night all the usual regulars. Depressing. GIVE OTHER PEOPLE A CHANCE, THUGS! The regular security was crabby too, they wouldn;t even let me step into hand him a letter and I was in the front row behind the barrier. :Grrrr, whatever, can't say it wasn't one of the best concerts I'd ever been to. Morrissey petted the speakers during Paris but I missed it because I was so agitated that someone was waving flowers at him the whole time and blocking the view, I was cursing the flower lady and missed the best part of the show. :p Anyway, Morrissey looks fabulous and healthy. I know anemia doesn't exactly show, but he seemed healthy and in particular... happy... which is lovely to see. Also the La de das at the end of TBWTTIHS...be still my heart. Sung perfectly.

The pause during Speedway he sang (he should do an acapella album ffs, he doesn;t even need a band) something that sounded familiar but I can't place it, the jist being about being in love and could it be you? Forgive me for not remembering! It'll be on youtube no doubt.



Nice review , CG. Bad luck with the letter ...

You have to copy the "image URL", then when you're ready to post click on the "insert image" icon and past the URL in the pop up box and click 'OK'. Let me know if that doesn't explain it fully :thumb:

Ok! I'll try it again! I guess I'll use the URLs i created posting them already to Morrissey-Solo, like you did with this last pic of mine, since I had been using my files directly from my computer.

Let's hope this works! I took the last pic's URL from directly from your reply. But I never got the same type #s for my URLs as you did.

Thank you!

Staples to come then. Oh what a night - it will be like a night out at the wigan casino (only hotter)
Ooh La La La
Hazard.
 
SWEEEEEEEET PICS!! Thanks! I'm watching the You Tube videos from Sovereign Arts Centre in Reading PA and noted the lack of Moz Huggers. I'm hoping to find someone with the "bracelets" CG was talking about for next month's show in Nashville. Is there a secret handshake I need to know??

Give the man a break. I witnessed this last night, we waited near the bus. There was a throng of screaming women, literally screaming, when he left the venue. It is a security risk in America, in Buenos Aires or whatever where the people were patiently waiting and he went out and signed stuff, no problem. But Americans are MANIACS. He was covered on three sides by security to get into the bus, and he looked tired AS HE SHOULD, he put on a rocking show.

Ever worked retail? Ever left your name tag on and left to take a break and someone asked you to help them and you thought "OMG FML, go away I'm tired and hungry."? Morrissey's name tag IS HIS FACE and the people aren't asking for a book or a movie, they want him to give them his signature and profess their soul and all that. Cut him some slack. He did his job, he doesn't owe anyone overtime.

From what I've heard and witnessed Morrissey really doesn't sign auto graphs after shows(at least here in the crazy USA:p)

I always assumed he doesn't even if he perhaps wouldn't mind that particular night because if he did there would be too many crazy fans outside every night! It would be a security nightmare. If he was known to "stay after" I wouldn't mind sticking around, would you?:o

Read this and it will become more clear why she isn't allowed near Morrissey.

FWIW NO ONE was belittling her for having fun or making fun of schizophrenia. Quite the opposite. It's simply that if you keep that kind of thing (the delusions in the above thread) up for years people don't see it in a laughing manner.

Really? You want to do this? Okay, so I guess Morrissey's security is logging onto solo anonymously and scanning for dangerous crazy perps to keep away from Morrissey? :straightface:

I'm just different. I think differently. Here you go, hon...for your scrapbook of the evening:
