|Summary by Christian
This was our second Morrissey gig of this Scandinavian tour. The night before was wonderful and we were a bit skeptical about this night. We knew that "Lisebergshallen" was a lot bigger than the Danish "Vega". Lisebergshallen holds something around 3000 people and about 1500-2000 tickets were sold. This sounds a bit more boring than the sold out, very intimate venue Vega.
We got there early as usual and we managed to get in the front row again. Me, in my golden shirt in good old Morrissey style. We, in the front row, got handshakes from Mozzer as usual. Morrissey seemed to be in a good mood this boring Monday, but he didn't say much between the songs. The audience in Gothenburg was magnificent!! It seemed that all the people in the crowd had been waiting 13 years for Morrissey to finally get to Sweden and they all been sitting home practising Morrissey's lyrics. In "Alma Matters" the crowd was screaming at the top of their lungs and Morrissey stopped singing and the crowd sang for him. Morrissey laughed and looked completely surprised and very, very happy. After the band struck the last chords of the track the crowd continued singing the "Alma Matters" chorus. They continued singing for maybe one minute... Morrissey was very pleased and bowed and said "thank you". The concert was great, and especially the crowd was great! Our only disappointment was that the set list was identical to the one from the night before.
