It seems funny that the one bit of the set that seems to stay the same is the World Peace Is None of Your Business / If You Don't Like Me, Don't Look At Me / Munich Air Disaster 1958 / Back On The Chain Gang / The Bullfighter Dies mid-section. It doesn't look that great on paper - but does it work better in concert?

Uh, no. Weird mix, dampened the vibe.

No, it doesn’t work well at all. It’s the low point of the show and half the crowd tunes out big time. Especially during World Peace and Munich Air. They do come back a bit for Chain Gang.

Also, ending with a shitty version of “First of the Gang To Die” does not close out the night in a high note. People were really expecting something a bit stronger. A lot of underwhelmed faces walking out.

Correct, it was a strangely enervated FoTGtD. Sounded like a Kidz Bop cover tbh.

I was standing with the two men who tried to go over the pit and tore up the lighting. There was an actual orchestra pit, lowered, with padded bars across the gap at audience floor level, and mesh fabric covering the gap. They aimed for the support bars, and apparently grabbed at the lights as they slid back, and the lights were just fixtures sitting on the stage, not clamped or anchored in any way, so they knocked over.

I fear what this means for the pit vibe at the rest of the shows. As the videos ended, people calmly migrated to stand at the front and in the aisles, and security was fine with it all. The vibe was mostly calm and kind, but energetic. But I fear that now there's a demonstrated risk of damage to the rented equipment, we won't be allowed to stand up front any more.

Agree, though the chorus of IYDLikeMe
was pretty powerful live, and seems to
me it’s his message to those who don’t agree with his recent views, ending with ...’don’t get your knickers in a twist’. Munich seems to be his tribute to those young men who died and I’m sure some of his British patriotism is in there too.
I enjoyed World Peace actually.
Guess we should be happy with what songs he is doing.

I was surprised to see how the audience reacted to Paris, It’s a fine pop song, but was surprised by the positive response it got, unlike Sunny which was another highlight, seemed to go over most of the audiences heads, and I think Morrissey could tell this, though there seemed also to be some sound problem, same when Jesse’s tech had to come out and fix a problem during How Soon.

Yeah, another fine pop song, though I wish he would drop FOTGang for a better closer.

Still hoping for ITYWDead :pray::)

Don’t know if I’ll go to anymore shows, time will tell.

We talked about this after the show. How much things have changed. "Paris" and "Something is Squeezing my Skull" used to be when we'd go to the bathroom, ten years ago. Now we sing along like they're old favorites.

You've fallen out of love with Morrissey over his recent comments?

Does a few comments really merit such an extreme response? Do the opinions of every artist you like have to correspond with your own for you to like them?

How odd.

you dont really believe 'his family':confused:
actually are in NYC:straightface: at the Moz show?
while he stayed behind to guard the pooch and post here
from the library.:rolleyes:
its all made up sock puppet talk:straightface:

I'm becoming ever more enamoured with Tobias's playing. I think he did a great job on Girl Afraid.

This was posted on the Morrissey subreddit:

Apparently this is the woman's second Moz skin autograph, soon to be second autograph tattoo, I assume. Interesting how he takes care to measure out the space on her back prior to signing.

Also, take note of Damon discretely exiting the back seat of the car.

And finally, "Mr. Morrissey"? WTF?

Keep, that guy saying Mr. Morrissey multiple times drove me nuts. He kept bothering security the whole time before Morrissey even pulled up... I was the one who took the video/posted it on Reddit :) Glad everyone else is enjoying it.
