Hello All,

Just back from the Metro gig. My connection here in Chicago is crapping out on me so I'll be brief...others will post more later.

Anyway, a truely special night in Morrissey history. Here are a few highlights:

Drum kit rearranged from saying "Morrissey" to "Semi Sorry". The first hint that the night was going to be a special show. Very intimate setting of only 1100 fans.

Operation drum intro not played...rather Morrissey walks out on stage with a guitar strapped on (!) and Alain takes the mic. Alain announced each member of the band finishing with "Morrissey on guitar!" They promptly switched roles and Morrissey took over as the and launched into "Swallow" as the first song.

The second track....drum roll......"Ouija Board, Ouija Board"!!! Needless to say the place went crazy.

Other highlights include an outstanding version of "I am Hated for Loving" as well as a semi accoustic version of "Boxers" with Spike Smith on bongos!

All in all, an amazing night...including five Smiths song..."Shoplifters", "Last Night", "Half a Person", "Meat Is Murder" and "Is It Really So Strange".

Hopefully someone out there bootlegged the show because it was amazing and should be documented.
