      I heard and saw a picture of a fight that broke out in the crowd (via Dickie Felton's twitter). What the f*** is going on there?

      That fight was probably Joey Barton kicking off again!!!

      My brother back in Glasgow told me that Craig Bellamy was a Smiths fan. With that in mind can we crowbar every soccer hoodlum into the Moz camp?:guitar:

      No How Soon is Now, it was I want the One I Can't Have and I Know it's Over.

      We've just got back to Mancfester from York-Morrissey was fabulous!! Made reference to'Old York Dolls', said he survived Glastonbury even though he wasn't supposed to! A fight did break out at the back of the standing-I was in the balcony overlooking-it was over in a flash. Only little disappointment for me was number of people in the balcony sitting down tappping on their mobiles!! Why??? I have never been to a Morrissey concert and been surrounded by people sat down!! Oh well me and my bf danced, sang and cheered the whole way through....brilliant night!!!!!!

      Stunning gig, Moz in the best form for years, no changes to the setlist, kids a looker returned, Boz actually looked happy for once!

      Good atmosphere, Moz in upbeat mood. Sound quality pretty average, same setlist. I got some good videos, which I'll post in the forums.

      I've just got in, Mal. I managed to engage half the train carriage in a conversation about Moz....it certainly passed the time! :lbf:

      Yes there was a fight! And thanks to the moron who started it, then fell backwards, whacking my wife in the face with the back of his head & elbow. I have just returned to our hotel room after over 4 hours in a&e, while she is being kept in overnight. Roll on Bradford & Grimsby, where at least we'll be seated. Getting to old for all this malarky!

      A big thank you to the person who found her phone & gave us it back.

      ...And he was probably wearing this tshirt:


      I'm sure some people could have done without all this "action", but someone probably gave the impression it's ok to fight and send people to the hospital, like that cool kid Joey does...

      That's not going to bring Radiohead fans back...

      I was on the front of the balcony...far from a morgue in my opinion...we had a blast! :thumb:

      Top gig. First of 3 on this tour for me...and my wife's first ever Moz gig. She is not a huge fan but she had an absolute ball and (literally) bought the t-shirt!

      I managed to beg a promo poster for the gig from a local pub too...nice bonus!

      Love the reworked Meat Is Murder...complete with the visuals it may even take me back to vegetarianism...powerful stuff!

      Roll on Bradford :D

      Great gig. I've been going to see him since 2004 and it was one of the best i've seen. Being from York I know all too well about crowds at concerts in this city, reserve and often dull at times. I was standing and down on the floor it felt like your normal, pumping Moz gig but when I looked up the balcony folk, with some exceptions, looked miserable. It was annoying but then you come to expect it in York. I don't know of any band or artist who has come to York and returned again. Saying that about the balcony there was a woman stood in front of me who kept checking her Facebook on her phone. PHONES SHOULD BE BANNED AT GIGS! No photos, no videos, no internet, no phones! Other people shouldn't have your arm in their face while you take a shit, blurry picture of Morrissey who looks 2 miles away. Your brain is capable of memory you know?
      Anyway sorry i've ranted a bit. It was a great gig, wonderful. Really wonderful. Some songs i've never heard live before sounded ace. I even had a cry at I Know It's Over.

      Thank you to all who helped me out of the crowd in the centre about 4 people back when I had a bit of a faint during Alma Matters, I never thought the first time I'd passed out at a gig would be aged 22 and at the York Barbican!

      It was a wonderful, wonderful night. Moz and the band were happy and playing well, crowd were happy and playing rough, and I was surprised at the venue - it adapted really well to that gig.

      Also *name drop* Chloe Sevigny was there, we spoke briefly at the bar, she was struggling to get her friend in on VIP by the looks of her text message that I may or may not have read over her shoulder... ahem.
