Did anyone try to hug / get on stage like the 2nd or 3rd song into the show or was it just the mad frenzy at the end ? Is "Earth is the lonelist Planet " a fast song ?

Thanks for the information Compadre .


I wonder if a line from a Smiths song was done in the middle of Speedway?

No, he did not sing a line from a Smiths song during the middle of Speedway. There was a long pause, and it seemed as if he was going to, but didn't. I will post the video on YouTube soon.


That setlist is accurate. Here are a quick few points. I'll be honest in my observations, so please don't shoot the messenger:

He was less chatty than usual.
Fans responded explosively to HAND IN GLOVE, but "World Peace Is None of Your Business" got an icy reception and people headed for the urinals. Not because they didn't know it, but it appeared no one liked it.
The Bullfighter Dies seemed like a short teaser as it was under 2:00 and I liked it a lot.
Meat is Murder was accompanied by its usual companion video that had those who'd had In N' Out Burger pre-show riddled with guilt.
Earth Is the Loneliest Planet was excellent.

The Highlights were:


The band and Moz sounded fantastic...especially on Ganglord.

Speedway was great, but we've all seen it now.

Crowd was more subdued than they should have been for an opening night of a tour! That was disappointing.
As he began "One Day Goodbye Will Be Farewell", fans rushed the stage for a hug or kiss. Before you knew it, the fans overpowered and manhandled the security and Boz and Jesse seemed to drop their guitars to rescue Morrissey and escort him offstage. Lights came on, exit music played.

Same intro video as last tour.

No SMITHS snippets played within Speedway.

"We have a new CD and LP. The Follow up to Viva Hate..." as someone pointed out.

Someone will photograph the merch I am sure. All the same shirts as last time. 7 new ones. Same print on canvas as before, but this time it was unsigned for just $30 and a cool white coffee cup with "World Peace Is None of Your Business"... any other questions? Just ask.

He appeared about 10 lbs thinner than usual too... Good sign of better health.

Sorry but a little vague.
How on earth do you judge the difference between people not knowing a new songs and people not liking a new song?

To have a follow-up to "Viva Hate" is splendid news. The gig sounds fantastic. Reading between the lines I would say that we could be
witnessing Morrissey's last year of touring.

Viva Mozza

You're the one for me
Great setlist, far better than expected


Oh dear - a 6/10 for the setlist. It's hugely depressing that he's reintroduced one of the contenders for his worst ever single (That's how people grow up), and other more recent duff stuff (Youngest most loved). Utterly sick of Meat is Murder (musically, it was never even that good in the first place) and National Front Disco just leaves a nasty taste in the mouth after his idiotic comments about immigration. Ganglord has a decent tune but ruined by a clumsy lyric. Great to hear Asleep, Trouble, and I Know It's Going to Happen though, and let's hope those new ones are at least half decent.

"World Peace Is None of Your Business" got an icy reception and people headed for the urinals. Not because they didn't know it, but it appeared no one liked it.
I remember it having a pretty part somewhere near the middle or so.:D The shortness of Bullfighter was a surprise; it did work well.

"World Peace" is nothing more than a turd. The lyrics and music sound like they were written by a child. And not a very gifted child, I might add. "Bullfighter" is standard Morrissey filler and "Earth" reminds me of the Macarena. And not in a good way.

If these songs are the "gems" he has created over the last couple of years, then his carreer is truly over.
