Just got back, that was a fantastic gig. Excellent set list and Moz in a very chatty light-hearted mood. Even the security were nice (at least the Scouser bloke near me was). Lots of good comments from Mr M - he introduced Everyday is Like Sunday by saying "Here is a new song called Just A Song Before Midnight" (or something like that), introduced the band by saying "As you nip out to the lavatory and quite rightfully have a cigarette, you might meet...Boz Boorer..." and a brilliant rant against Prince William and Kate that went something like "So, as you intelligent people are aware, we've seen the lovely William and Kate on the news and we are supposed to think they are good and funny and are bringing us all together, well, they've been in Canada and they were making foie gras - the worst kind of meat product - and Kate smiled and laughed as she handed out for people to eat. Oh, William and Kate, William and Kate, William and Kate - BAG OF SHIT!" he then launched into Meat is Murder as the crowd applauded wildly! That was awesome and actually made the song and video more relevant.
His comment about Stoke was before the encore of Panic, he said "Thanks to All The Young and to the city of Stoke, where the men are men and the women are men" The crowd loved that one, Mozza should become a stand-up in his old age methinks. All in all an amazing night. First gig for my Mum too! Got a few pics and three vids. Will upload soon.
Foie Gras comment: Some facts folks. K & W were at a "Chef" school in Quebec where they learned how to make Foie Gras.......while outside, a great many anti-monarchy and vegetarian protesters gathered. So, Sir Moz, get your facts straight. We all know what goes into Foie Gras and Blood Pudding, etc, etc, etc. It's not like all Canadians go out and kill ducks and make a nasty paste with their livers...much like not all Brits go fox hunting. For all we know, you rascal Moz, you've got a rifle in your closet and take the occasional shot?
