Washington, DC - Sep. 20, 1997
Capitol Ballroom (capacity: 2000)
|Summary by Edwin
Well, we flew up from Miami to the show all excited to see Moz finally. The show was great, Moz sounded and looked wonderful. The only problems I had with the show were that his set was too short. He mostly played selections from Maladjusted which were excellent. The songs he sang from the other albums were not his best work.
Another problem was the fact that there were 5 of the biggest monsters I have ever seen in my life working as bouncers. No one got to rush the stage because of these freaks of nature. Also, Moz wasn't accepting gifts or flowers from anyone. Around 3 people had letters for him and he didn't accept one from any of these people.
If I had to rate the show on a scale from 1 thru 5, I would give it a 4. I believe it could have been way better if he would have participated more with the audience like in his earlier shows. All in all it was an experience I will never forget. I would do it all over again. I didn't mind waiting close to 10 hours in line, getting crushed by 2000 people, or fighting with the bouncers again. I guess it's just part of being a Morrissey fan.
Also, there must be a sense of unity amongst Morrissey fans. I've never met nicer people in my life. We all shared stories, drinks, and jokes at the bouncers expense. I think I'm gonna travel again to another Moz show just for the people there.
