  • I went alone to the concert, made like 60 miles to go there from the city Im at. I was probably the person that better knew moz's music there, not counting julia. I sang every word of every song, I couldn't believe when he played "We'll let you know" one of my favourite songs of Morrissey. Appart from me, no one seemed to know his songs, except like "first of the gang to die" or how soon is now maybe. There were technical issues with his microphone, a lot of them actually and that made him lose the spirit, obviously. I hated the crowd around me, they were all bored, I wonder why would they stand there, instead of going get drunk or something. I was really happy, dancing and singing loud, I was even asked by a girl if I could pls not sing loud because of whatever. I looked at her in amazement and a bit of contempt and took a step back and resumed my dancing. people around me were staring at me because I was singing all the words, when they probably didnt even know who Moz is.
    He cut short the last song, Panic, probably as a sign of his dislike for the technical issues.

    He began by being in a good mood, but with the tech issue and the dreadful crowd, he wasnt as pleased.

    In the end, a great concert, pity the issues with his mic and the dreadful boring ignorant crowd ( as i would expect)

  • Morrissey was in a good mood, very talkative with the crowd but towards the end he was somewhat pissed with the microphone. Life is a pigsty was sung under rain - beautiful!!

  • We must have been at a different gig last night to the one described below. The audience around us were really into it, and singing along to just about every song. Moz seemed to start off in a good mood, was chatty and all was well with the world. Yes, there were some technical problems with the mic. There were a couple of songs that people didn't seem to know the words to, and I think this is what pissed Mozzer off. He had barely started 'Panic' when he just flounced off, leaving the band looking slightly startled and wondering what to do. Don't get me wrong, I love Morrissey, he's one of the untouchables for me, but I expected more from him than that. It was a really unsatisfying end to the night. The crowd had given him a good reception (in my view), and you have to remember, this is a primarily young Portuguese audience, they can't be expected to know the words to every Moz song ever. Everyone around us were in mid-song, mid-dance and were left shocked at the walk-out. I haven't seen Morrissey live for ages, is this common practice nowadays?

  • Sorry, but you’re Frankly Vulgar saying that! There were some who know and sing all songs… (Including me – and yes I do know If You Don't Like Me, Don't Look At Me… and yes, I’m Portuguese and I also travel several miles from the city where I live…).
    It was interesting to watch to the audience as we could find not only some older persons (from the Smiths era) but also some teenagers (what somehow left me astonished as is the second time for Morrissey in Portugal…) I must agree with Pip on the fact that it can’t be expected from a primarily young Portuguese audience to know the words to every Moz song ever…
    Morrissey started in a really good mood, talking to the Portuguese (and Spanish) fans and asking for the audience “help”. During the show he talked to the audience several times (including one mentioning the fact that Portugal beat England in the Last Soccer World Cup…) but, and there is always a but, some technical issues regarding is mic pissed him and I think that was what made him end the concert earlier … while the band was playing Panic for just a minute… and abruptly stopped…
    Obviously the fans didn’t understand….
    I am somehow disappointed for technical issues of the show (the mic and the sound in general) but I enjoyed the set-list – with some singing loud and some dancing around – and hope that Moz comes back to Portugal more times (in order to make the young Portuguese audience to practice the words of every song… :) ).
    Somehow disappointed ‘cause I think Moz should have done an effort - the fans who waited for so many years deserved that…
    Favourite songs played: We’ll Let You Know" and” "If You Don't Like Me, Don't Look At Me”.
    Moz played also the usual from Smiths era "Girlfriend", "Stop Me", "How Soon" and a “newer and shorter” version of "Panic".
    My rate: 3/5
    P.S. Obviously Julia was there…

  • I don't know where Franlky Vulgar was but that's not the gig i saw. I was right up front, surrounded by teens - surprisingly - , and we - the oldies- and they were all singing to every single song, so it wasn't Frankly alone. Don´t forget that there were 20 thousand people and not everyone one was there for Morrissey and I think he knew that. Of course some don't like him and morrissey never was popular in Portugal but nevertheless it surpassed all expectations. I was in Paris to see moz and the crowd was anemic compared to yestearday's audience but moz didn't leave stage as he did last night.

  • Pues eso, el concierto estuvo muy bueno, pero la niñería de Mozz al enfadarse por problemas técnicos y dejarnos tirados tal cual, dejó, creo en general un mal sabor de boca y la no posibilidad de un bis. Pagamos nosotros (el público) un problema ajeno. Que pague la organización, no los sufridos seguidores que viniendo de todos los puntos de la península, gastándonos un pastón, pidiendo días de vacaciones, etc, etc, nos llevamos creo un triste final,m en vez de un apoteósico Panic y encima os regalo un bis con There's a light, ya que habéis aguantado estoicamente la lluvia que cayó en diferentes ocasiones. En is a pigsty y Mozz nos ayudó a tenerlo claro.
    Aparte de esto, todo lo demás incluidos los problemas técnicos, disfrutamos como cosacos!!!

  • Concerto mágico... a chuva não ajudou mas empurrou no encanto das música. Estou um bocado farto dos jornais Portugueses dizerem que ele saiu aborrecido por isto ou aquilo. Foi por causa das deficiências relativas ao som.

  • a summary in English (Score:2, Informative)

    Ok, I realise that we are discussing the gig in Portuguese so here is a summary of my personal experience,for the non-portuguese fans.

    Paredes de Coura is a 3 day Festival that has 6 bands playing everyday in the main stage. Moz sang on the first day to 22,000 people (not all of them fans,of course).

    It started to rain when Morrissey came :-) and he seemed amused by that. The Gig started with "How soon is now" followed by "first of the gang" and "you have killed me". The setlist was mainly from ROTT but also included the b-side " If you don't like me...", IBEH, let me kiss you, don´t make fun of Daddy's voice" and We´ll Let You Know. From the Smiths there was also girlfriend on a coma and Stop me... and the last song was panic (about 1 min, because he walked out in the midlle of it).

    Moz was in a good mood, he made a funny comment about POrtugal and the world cup,thanked his POrtuguese fans for buying ROTT, and everyone for attending the gig and waiting for him. Said that the lyrics in the end of "Don´t make fun of daddys voice" were not Spanish but a special language that very few people knew (such as Julia and himself) and was very funny when he introduced the band.

    After Pigsty he said-you know life is a pigsty,just wait and see...

    When he sang "if you don´t like me..." asked if there was anyone who knew the song.

    Just before "Panic" he said - "and remember the way out is also the way in". :-)

    He used 4 shirts and riped 2 of them that were obviously thrown to the crowd!

    Unfortunately there were technical problems, a microphone was replaced in the midlle of "In the future" and that may be the reason why he left while singing panic.

    It was however a great concert. And everyone agrees with this- fans,non fans,critics in newspapers... Life is a pigsty under the rain was fantastic- people were singing and dancing and having fun. It was very special.

    I had a great time, some fans however are sad and disapointed because of the way he ended the gig, and why he did it, etc...Every journal I read mentioned this.

    I finally saw the Man live - I still can´t believe it!

  • Morrissey was at his best (as always) in Paredes de Coura. Shame about the audience, they didn't welcomed Moz in the proper Moz way but, I think that was to be expected after all how can you admire Morrissey and the bands that played at the festival (except Gomez, they were quite good actually!) at the same time? I tried to sing as loud as I could and also do the football Mozzer hymn but he obviously couldn't ear me! Unfortunately you have to go to England for a proper Morrissey concert there's no other way! The funniest thing about Paredes de Coura Festival was that you could actually see people in Morrissey t-shirts eating in McDonalds and KFC; just imagine if the t-shirt was a "Meat is Murder" one!!!!

  • Are you one of the last British people you'd never want to know? Sure he's hardly done the encore yet. I can relate that according to a spokesperson for the band said: "Ricky Wilson has torn his ankle ligaments jumping off a stage at Parades De Coura Festival, Portugal." News on the radio is that the Rolling Stones have cancelled their tour dates in Spain due to Mick Jagger's laryngitis. We could choose to be patient and genial while waiting for news of our particular interest: go on, the Mozzer!
