  • reader meet author. different order though.

    Morrissey was in good form.

    from the top of my head:

    He started with an announcement: "when its spring again, I'll sing again tulips from Amsterdam". which is a tacky Dutch song.
    Said that the house was full, so it must be raining outside.
    Some peoplpe chanted Morrrissey, Morrissey, Morrissey and he replied:" let me guess: British, right?
    He claimed that this was his first solo gig in Amsterdam, and that he was here by popular demand.
    Lots of other things but Ill write them down tomorrow, if other havent.

    The setlist was good, especially the new songs. I am not a fan of Pigsty on the cd, but live that one is really the best of the evening. Other highlights for me were Trouble loves me, youngest, was the most loved and of course Still Ill.

    thats it, goodnight!

  • Wow, what an evening... Second row, close to the Moz, close to my hero... He came up in dark suit with a pink shirt, threw it in the audience after a couple of songs, than a black shirt and a blue for the encore. He was chatty at the beginning (see above posting) more quit later on. Life is a Pigsty was incredible, what a fantastic song. The crowd was too passive, only with Irish Blood it got serious. Back at home, watching 'Who Put the M', we reflect on a wonderful evening, an experience that only Morrissey can bring to you. How privileged can we be that we love him and his music..?
    Ok, Glasgow is next....

  • I think the performance of Morrissey tonight was incredible. By bringing mostly his new material he shows he is still very active and alive. The band was unbelievable, it sounded sometimes like Pink Floyd. But I missed the beautiful songs of the Smiths-period, which are still very contemporary and alive too. Maybe Morrisey can do another tour with only Smiths-songs ? Morrissey with his long history as a writer is too big for one performance. Please let Morrissey come back with a Smiths tour !!

  • So for the first time Moz as a solo-artist played Amsterdam, which he also noted, and it was absolutely great. Let's forget about The Boyfriends who were mediocre at best, but First Of The Gang really set the place alight. The first part of the concert was amazing. He should get rid of Endless Succesion, which quite dampened the spirits. Pigsty live is incredible, and thank God he played Trouble Loves Me, which was a bit slow but perfect nonetheless. A funny remark about Reader Meet Author: It is from an album which nobody likes, that's why we played it. The Smiths-songs were brilliant, Still ill...Girlfriend in A Coma...How Soon Is Now...amazing!!!! The songs he played from Ringleader, especially At Last I Am Born, were even better than on the album. Okay, this is only a first impression, but this is Moz in topform. I know you didn't mean to, but you made this man very happy...

    Afterwatd - by good luck - we've found the hotel of the musicians. I've took to Boz and Jessy. Those are 2 nice men. I've told Jessy that has written beautifull new songs for THE RINGELEADER... and that made him very happy.
    P.S. The hotel was very near to the AKNATON (where the afterparty was). Did Boz showed up there (I gave him a copy of the pamflet)

  • Am I the only one who was disappointed with this concert? I was really fucked off that he didn't introduce his amazing band. Those guys were fantastic!!!!
    I got the impression that Moz was pissed off with the audience, who only really came alive for the Smiths numbers. Dutch audiences are well known for their sobriety at concerts, but last night was the worst reception ever. No wonder the big man got fucked off.
    Well I went for it and enjoyed every moment of every song and showed my appreciation, but am still upset that he didn't intro his guys, and only played one encore song. But with a reception like last night, I'm surprised he didn't walk off stage after the third song.

  • This was my first time I saw him in real, and I was impressed. A great performer and a great band as well. My all-time-favourite song: How soon is now, made me shiver. It was great. But Life is a pigsty wasn't bad at all.... Probebly number 2.

    The new album (with DVD) sounds and looks great.

    A shame that there was only 1 extra song. Weren't the dutchies not loud enough???

    I took some pictures with my phone, but they look awfull. Can somebody help me please?

          The point is rather this: if he wants to review Morrissey, he should review Morrissey. Comparing Morrissey to The Smiths is no way to review Morrissey.

          What you'd be able to do, is compare the 2006 version of Smiths songs, to their "original" version.

          People change. Morrissey in The Smiths was a rebel with a cause. Morrissey in 2006 is an accomplished singer with a voice.

          Morrissey in 2006 appeals for different reasons - or certainly doesn't have exactly the same appeal as back in 1983.

          I'm old, tried and tired, and Morrissey has been with me for over 20 years. I don't think I would now respond to The Smiths in the way I did in 1983 if they would start now; and if I heard Morrissey for the first time in 2006, I don't think I'd react in the way I reacted in 1983.

          Things change. People change. For me it makes no sense to compare the days of 1983 to those of 2006. Too many differences.

          The reaction to Smiths songs is different from the reaction on his Solo-work ? True and not true; many only react to what they know best - and The Smiths catalogue is better known with more people than ROTT or YATQ. But in terms of intensity, I've already seen people go mad both with Everyday is like Sunday, You're the one for me fatty, as with Hand in Glove.

          For me as well, the older Smiths songs have much more personal references than, say, I will see you in far-off places. But I know newer fans who prefer FOTGTD to MIM. Not for me though.

          But Moz in Amsterdam & Paris was an incredibly touching experience nevertheless - and I'm there to see him as he is doing now, not to remember the skinny, shy, slightly aggressive figure who confrontationally grabbed the mike and faught the world.

          I saw a very confident Morrissey compared to the 1984 days; and a positive point. This is someone who has done what he wanted to do, the way he wanted to do it - and he's there. He's still there. He enjoys being there - singing for the sole purpose of singing. As if he would care what's coming next.

          It didn't trigger any ecstatic feeling of joy, but an intense feeling of love. And if Morrissey can do that in 70 minutes, he's a pure talent - and I'm a poor tart.

          See I am a Smiths fan AND a Morrissey fan. Both have their merits and I see them apart from each other. Where the Beatles are concerned: I love them but I won't attend a McCartney concert to hear old Beatles songs... that would be daft as hell.

          Another example: next month I go to see Zappa's sons play their fathers music. What I don't expect is an exact replica of a 1979 Frank Zappa concert (which sadly I missed being to young to go to his concerts and then the poor sod died). No, I expect to see two creative men confront their own musical views with their fathers music. It'll be a nice experiment and I won't feel sad if they don't do "Dancing Fool" as Frank would've done it. I would be delighted if they'd do Dancing Fool in their own original way, though.
          Old concert videos played during the concert are a plus, not the reason of my going.

          Please please please... let Morrissey be Morrissey and not "the former lead singer of the Smiths." You definately do him wrong since he's matured a lot and changed, just as I did and probably most old Smiths fans.

  • But then neither are you!

    I have returned joyous at my experiences in the old port!

    Firstly I'd like to apologise to Harald about the ticket. It’s not my fault my mate is a complete f---wit whose passport expired 5 days before the off!
    Which he found out at check-in at the airport!!! I’m really, really sorry if it inconvenienced you.

    Anyway made a good weekend of it, saw Ajax win 1-0 in a pretty awful match if truth be told, visited Rembrandt’s house which was bit of tourist rip off, indulged in the coffee shops and the Amstel and Heineken. Ate a lovely Indonesian meal as well, one of the best vegetarian things I’ve ever had!

    The gig, the gig, the gig. Admittedly I was a little worse for wear but I remember most of it! Couldn’t be bothered muscling my way to the front though by the sounds and looks of it everyone was a little more laissez-faire than in the UK! Hence my mate got some really good photos.

    The new songs are amazing live but I’m a little worried that the venue, which by the way is probably the best venue in terms of acoustics and sound I have been to, served the songs so well that they (the songs) may sound weaker in comparison at some of the UK venues. Oh well I’ll find out soon enough!

    I felt like it was a rock show rather than a Morrissey gig at times, which I personally thought was a good thing. The band were extremely tight and very “professional.” The sound was astoinshing.

    Other highlights were definitely the Smiths songs, Trouble Loves Me, Reader Meet Author when the “strings” kicked in and as said the new songs. I wasn’t overly impressed by the Quarry songs though that’s probably more to do with over-familiarisation than them being weaker. Though I loved My Life Is An Endless…

    I Will See You In Far Off Places was bombastic! (if you’ll pardon the pun, oh you did. Thanks) and when he did the circling motion with his hand to, “It’s the same old S.O.S” I nearly came on the spot. From 15 rows back and all! Messy.

    Liked the Magazine cover and all. Please keep it in the set. I thought a few people were disappointed by the length of the show. I wasn’t!

    Forgotten gem of the night….”To Me You Are A Work Of Art” Fanf---ingtaastic.

    The aftershow party was good fun. Especially my photos with Boz and Jesse! That’s when I came again.
    Nah they were very approachable and friendly even in my, by this point, twisted eyes.
    I enjoyed meeting everyone in the party as well even if it is all a little hazy. Hope I didn’t pith anyone off. Don’t think I did! Johan and Houdini72 you did us proud. Cheers guys!

    BLUEBIRDS soon to be @ Llandudno!!!
