  • Venus In Furs (Score:2, Informative)

    just returned from Düsseldorf - it was a great concert!

    The setlist was the same as from Munich, including William again.

    Staff said that the venue was sold out; i could spot people looking for tickets outside.

    Morrissey was in good talking mood; complaning about "many women in furs" he had seen "walking the busy streets of Düsseldorf". He said that he played the venue in 1986 the last time and asked who was there. When corrected by the crowd, that the one and only concert in this hall was on 23nd December 1992, he joked "i knew that; i wanted to test you. Where you there? There's my father, he was there"

    It took me 2,5 hours by car to get to the venue because of a traffic jam and i arrive when K. Young was already playing. Her performance was not my cup of coffee, perhaps because of the bad sound.

    After that we were entertained by video clips of The New York Dolls and various European Song Contest participants. Strange...

    Later more.

    • Additional Misc. (Score:2, Informative)

      Part II (a few ramdom, but fresh memories).

      Mercandise: they had 4 different T-shirts (Vicar Pic, In The Future Sleeve Pic, Tour Poster Pic with dates on the back, 3 Posters (same as T-shirts more or less); a tie pin and a normal pin with the known 'M' Logo on it.

      Backdrop: again Passolini; mentioned during You Have Killed Me from Morrissey "Passolini is HIM"

      Visitors: The venue has galleries on three sides, but there were many empty seats. As you could choose whether to sit or to stand, this is no contradiction to the 'sold out' statement. I don't know how many tickets were sold to be sold out, but the venue could have coped with some more visitors.

      Misc: The April 2006 issue of the german music mag MUSIKEXPRESS with Morrissey on the cover was given away for free after the concert.

      Music: the crowd was in good mood, singing along to every song. However, the old Smiths tunes, especially William got the most support, but First Of The Gang To Die, Irish Blood and You Have Killed Me came in very close. My fav was Ganglord - thats a live killer! Should have been a single A-Side...

  • I might be one of the very few people to came to the concert to see Kristeen Young ... with the very nice addition to see her supported by Morrissey ;o)

    So forgive me to go ladies first: Got to see KY from quite close to front row. She played a great setlist of old and new songs (for setlist and pictures see http://www.kristeenyoung.de/ [kristeenyoung.de]). All around me there was very much positive reaction and a nice response to her - i'm pretty proud of my "home crowd".

    So being not a Morrissey fan i'm on my way to become one ... great start with Panic and First of the gang, fantastic atmosphere, great crowd - Moz in good mood, shaking hands all the time, chatting about Dusseldorf ... I left front to make room for "real" fans an got seated next to the stage - had a good view to all of the audience and to me the venue seemed to be almost sold out, only a few empty seats ... people have been with Moz from front to back ... terrific evening. The closer (before the encore) was a piano only "Auld lang syne" ... so wish you all a very merry X-mas!

  • Stefan is right with everything! Except that the sound of K. Young was not bad: she always sings and plays like that!
    We enjoyed the gig very much. Tight band, lovely Moz, great crowd.
    Funny side-effect: Moz seemed amused when the crowd fighted for his 1st shirt and commented the fuss with the words "Very impressive". Then he stood about a minute half-naked in front of the audience.
    Super-Highlights: Ganglord, NFD, IBEH and You`ve killed me.

  • UTTERLY brilliant! Most probably the best gig by the man I've attendend since 1999 yet! (Berlin is still to come...) The crowd was actually pretty appreciative for a German audience, if you ask a fellow Kraut. When Kristeen Young opened I guess a lot of people from outside the MoZ community (who in one way or another at least knew what to expect) were either quite shocked or didn't know how to come to terms at all with what was being performed, which is perfectly OK eventually, as she's surely dividing people. Personally, after witnessing her banshee-scream-soaked madness in Dublin earlier this year, I'm a firm supporter of hers. Brilliant opening act, and in my humble opinion a 1000 times better than your ususal good-for-nothing new Indie sensation nonsense... Between KY and the Mozfather, there were some old sequences and clips shown, be it (mostly) music or movie related, whereas especially the Sacha Distel piece was hilarious. (To see Manfred Sexauer announcing the NEW YORK DOLLS was also a treat!) Then the lights went out, the curtain fell, and the man himself alongside his "gang" (because they have that kinda vibe around them by now) delivered the goods big time!! After the opening chords of "Panic", it's all one blurry nearly transcendental exeperience to me, it was that good! With the only exception of "Ganglord" maybe, which will probably never win me over... Other than that, the setlist was utterly brilliant, having it's absolut peaks with "I've Changed my Plea To Guilty" (weep), "William, It Was Really Nothing", "The National Front Disco" and (as one of the two encores) a brilliant rendition of "Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want"!! The ending of the latter left me literally speechless! Well done Jesse and Mike! Obviusly Morrissey was in a good talkative mood, as there was quite some interaction with the audience, as well as the return of the old cult of shaking/touching front row hands, which never ceases to make me smile... Actually from all the MoZ gigs so far, he surely appeared to enjoy himself the most, even throwing some "thumbs up" at the crowd while leaving, which I'm normally more used to see with the SCORPIONS or Macca ;-))To end on a pathetic note, after the gig my girlfriend noticed some poor, poor girl complaining about the short playingtime (compared to her expenses)!! Please, Please, Please, let her get the next James Blunt ticket (Lord knows it wouldn't be the first time...)

  • I've just got to England having driven with a friend down to the gigs in Munich and Dusseldorf. I felt that the Dusseldorf show was better by a long way. Better crowd, good sound and a far chirpier Moz. I definitely thought he seemd a little vacant in Munich, as though something had pissed him off or he had had words with a band memeber or something. Having watched about 25 shows from down the front there are quite often two different Morrissey's to be seen and this was one of those nights when he seemed to be going through the motions. I don't think the crowd helped either, throughout the show some people were coming and going to buy drinks etc and showing only a passing interest in the man himself, he did that thing towards the end also, where he motions to the band with his hand to keep going as if to say that's it, I'm not going to say anymore. Though don't get me wrong, his performance and voice was superb and no one should have ben disappointed with the show.
    Last night in Dusseldorf was a different story, the crowd were lapping him up and at one point he joked "I can't stop them Arturo, I can't" when the crowd kept singing his name. He spent more time than usual as he left the stage too, trying to shake as many hands as possible and trying to stop fans hurting themselves in the crush. I could hear him talking to the people at the front without his microphone from about 15 feet back, it was great to see.

  • When some of the crowd sang along to the opening lines from Irish Blood, "Irish Blood, English heart / this I'm made of", Morrissey asked: "Really?" Great joke.

    He was very entertaining. I really enjoyed this gig.

  • ..the great number that Gary did with his bass guitar at the end of Pisgsty?????...on his knees, on the edge of the stage, stretching the bass out with both hands towards the audience???? Amazing of what???

    Alltogheter a great show, though at the front things were quite heavy duty...but who cares!!!

  • Although the audience did seem a bit reserved at first, things really warmed up with Irish Blood, English Heart.

    Even the "Morrissey, Morrissey, Morrissey" chant got an airing after that!

    Our Mozzer seemed to enjoy himself - taking off his shirt twice... surely a baramoter of whether the great man is happy or not!

    I went with a German 'Rawk' fan and she also enjoyed it - her first Morrissey concert, unsurprisingly.

    Some funny moments, sorry if they've already been mentioned...

    "I must warn you... I must warn you... I sing in a foriegn language"

    "I walked around Dusseldorf today and not ONE person said hello to me. Which means they must have recognised me..."

    Anyway, thank you Dusseldorf - a truly great city. Visitors, look for the Old Town/Altstadt. Incredible for the discerning beer drinker.

  • I was there, right in the middle of the nice old town of düsseldorf. Still can't believe it, Morrissey-visualisations at the pub-window, every fifth song Smiths or Morrissey, Fan-Interviews on Radio eins live. It seems like my Ex-City was really in the hand of people with the same strange music taste I have.
    But I think of suggesting a poll: Does it suit a Morrissey-Fan to be moving with excitement in the front rows of a concert? I hope the preferred answer is yes...

  • Mozzalini was in a great mood, good strong voice and very energetic. And an excellent setlist, probably the best in years... 1h 45m!!!

    The guys also really seemed to enjoy themselves. Especially Mr. Boorer, who was constantly gazing into the hall with his famous semi-serious facial expression.

    That long dutch dude got to the stage and the security guys let him shake hands with the Mozzer. Good one Venlo-man! C U in Amsterdam. There were some really short girls elbowing their way to the front row, weird and obnoxious.

    A girl next to me fainted. I almost fainted when listening to Kristeen Young... When a couple of people started chanting 'Moz Moz' she said:"You are so boring.." Maybe that ungrateful scream queen should get her own show.

    When Moz changed his shirt into a blue one, I asked him:"Feeling blue again?" not very funny...
    Moz replied:"There's always room for improvement."

    The afterparty was packed and there was a great atmosphere. But why not only Smiths/Moz songs?

    Had a great trip with Tober, Den and Mrls.
    Next stop: Amsterdam

  • Certainly the best Morrissey show I ever saw on German soil. He was in great spirits, as was the audience.
    22 songs is the most I've ever heard him perform.

    The aftershow party in the Altstadt was also phenomenal, only why did they have to play Love and Pride???

    Looking forward to Amsterdam and the aftershow party [chello.nl] there!

Nearly twenty years later I still feel the guy sees life still like I do. What a great expierence to see Morrissey after all this time for the first time. Great concert only regret that I havent gone to one before. Stupid me.

    i am the lucky one of the first row, who has catched the black shirt in Düsseldorf. I took some pictures, too, which are available at
    http://www.meine-daten.de/smiths/index.html [meine-daten.de]

    Why I am writing this to you? Because my friend and me like the perfume of the shirt collar and it was really intensive. So I went with the shirt to Douglas and let them take a smell at the shirt. Now I know, which favorite perfume he uses. No, I am not from Douglas or the brand. ;-)

    If you like it, too - smell at Gucci Pour Homme. (Btw, the shirt is from Prada with size 42.)

    I which you all a merry christmas and a happy new Moz-Year...
