    Thought I had an account on here, but perhaps I was wrong ... this is the set list he played tonite:

    1) Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want
    2) How Soon Is Now?
    3) First Of The Gang To Die
    4) In The Future When All's Well
    5) Everyday Is Like Sunday
    6) Irish Blood, English Heart
    7) The Boy With The Thorn In His Side

    14) All You Need Is Me
    15) I Just Want To See The Boy Happy
    16) At Last I Am Born
    17) You Have Killed Me
    18) The Last Of The Famous International Playboys
    19) Life Is A Pigsty
    20) National Front Disco

    21) You're Gonna Need Someone On Your Side

    Moz was fairly quite tonite, launching straight into "Please" without an introduction. He made comments about lobsters not being "seafood" but "sealife" (as the venue is located in an area populated with seafood restaurants) and joked about his health problems, saying "The new iron lung is working well, thank you for your concern." He came on stage in a tuxedo and changed shirts twice, with two going into the audience. He sounded strong vocally, but chose not to sing certain notes, most noticeably omitting "international" from "Last Of The Famous..." As he made good on his promise for Boston, hopefully we'll see rescheduled dates for the rest of the shows postponed on the tour.

  • Came on in full tuxedo and played Please Please Please without a word. Then launched into How Soon Is Now? Encore was You're Gonna Need. Played First of the Gang, You Have Killed Me, Disappointed, Last of the Famous International Playboys, Whatever Happens I Love You, In The Future When All's Well, At Last I Am Born, I've Changed My Plea To Guilty, The National Front Disco, Let Me Kiss You, The Boy with the Thorn In His Side, Irish Blood English Heart, I Just Want To See the Boy Happy, Everyday Is Like Sunday, Life Is A Pigsty, All You Need Is Me, and That's How People Grow up in between. Absolutely incredible.

    He was in good form. Made a joke when he came back after Let Me Kiss You, saying "I left, and then I came back. Absolutely amazing.'

  • Great start with 'Please please please let me get what i want' and 'how soon is now'. It was great to hear him joke about the first show. the crowd was really supportive too.

    'I've changed my plea to guilty' was also great. I'm also glad he did 'let me kiss you' again, as the first performance of it suffered from his illness. 'National Front Disco' was also infinitely better than last time when he could sing parts of it.

    I didn't expect 'life is a pigsty' to be so impressive live. That was a nice surprise.

    I don't like 'Your gonna need someone on your side' as an encore song.

    I hope the new MSG schedule will be on a weekend. I would like to buy tickets.

  • Was a good (not great) show. Voice was still off in places, esp. Grow up. Joked when he came back on after Kiss You, as this was his last song when he cut the concert short a few weeks back. All in all, voice troubles may mean more issues with future shows...

  • I left halfway through the new stinker That's How People Grow Up.

    I could hear Moz yelping something about sea-life not seafood all the way from my plate of steamers at the Barking Crab.

  • He sounded great! His voice cracked a few times and towards the end of the show he said he wish he had a bowl of soup. But it was a fantastic show with a much different set list. I was floored when they did "I've changed my plea to guilty".

    He joked with the crowd quite often. After he tore off his shirt, left the stage and came back and said "I'm back"! The crowd loved it. We also got a little lecture about lobsters. He said they are "sea life, not sea food".

    There was even some flowers! Haven't seen that in a while.

  • I have seen Moz at least 20 times, and this was the worst concert of all. Voice was off throughout, 1 song encore, included Life is a pigsty to kill the mood, and all around weak vibe. He needs to shut it down for a while and repair the pipes. Not going to waste another 60 bucks on this shit. And, Julia can suck it too.

  • His voice sounded pretty good tonight. He held off in the beginning, then picked up steam, and it was very solid near the middle. I think he was getting fatigued near the end, but he can not be faulted.

    I think the set was a conscious gift to the fans, as he stayed away from the 7 songs from last week for quite awhile-- plus little gifts like "pigsty" and "whatever happens i love you".

    i was lucky enough to be in the first few rows for what was my first complete moz concert. I'm sure it must be typical, but I was horrified to see the aftermath of his final de-shirting, which carried on well after the last song. The tug of war for the shirt-- a mix of madness, pride, and hatred in the eyes, pulling hair, kicking. Security came in with the jaws of life (or were those scissors?), leaving the ugly, ugly people to run out in tears, grasping a piece of cloth, clutching some fake attachment to a man who, upon seeing this display of the worst of animal trait, would surely despise them for it. Not the ending I wanted to a beautiful evening

    after 'let me kiss you' he ran to get a change of shirt (he came out in a black suit, white shirt, and black bowtie, btw). This is the point last week where he never returned. I think everyone held an anxious breath, but he literally ran off and was back before the end of the song. He said something to the extent of, "did you see? I went off, and immediately returned, amazing".

    His first comment of the night was thanking us for being out, and "to that small minority who got refunds, pffffft"

    nothing about the throat, doctors, etc. He was great, voice hit its stride midset, and even dropped 2 out of the 7 songs he played the first time around, completely changing the order of the set.

    I didn't notice any voice issues- I thought he sounded great. Seemed in pretty good spirits, and didn't cut the show short at all. The setlist was excellent as well. I loved "All you need is me."

    He accepted two bouquets of flowers. He also wiped his face on a towel someone handed to him and then gave it back.

    Insane fight for the last shirt. I scrambled around the floor while hair was being pulled and emerged triumphant with a button. Yes!

    I'm so grateful he was able to reschedule this show so quickly. Best of luck to everyone!

  • "How can you say, 'I go about things the wrong way'? I am human and need to be loved...just like everybody else does"

    And with that, Morrissey gave his response to those who were upset by the booing, unforgiving members of the previous crowd. Dressed in a fashionably fitting, classic B&W tuxedo, Morrissey opened the show with Please, Please...and rolled right into How Soon Is Now? with out a word.

    At one point, referring to the refund policy, he said, "And for those who took the refund...pfftpthp"

    His voice was spot on for much of the show, including hitting some falsetto highs. It did waver towards the end.

    Band was spot on and tight. In good humour too.

    No stage rushes -- even after some encouragement to "Bring me some soup...and make it quick." Possibly no one wanted the singing to end?

    Some real rough patches in the set list, especially with the back cataloge Morrissey has. Far too little from Your Arsenal - although, admittedly - anything short of playing that whole album is far too little for my taste.

    All in all, a wonderful show. Let's hope he makes it through more of them.

  • I think I should have brought in something to drink, because I got probably dizzy from dehydration (not beer, I don't need beer to get dizzy), so I am in need of rest, and I will do just a tiny review tonight.

    Kristeen Young was all the time talkative, much more than the first time, she wore an interesting black dress - those you will never find in Marshal's or Macy's, I don't know how she gets them. She played a number of mesmerizing songs, the crowd became more responsive this time compared to last time because of them and because, a second time, she suddenly is not so strange any more. Someone even asked her for an autographed, which she signed very gracefully.

    Morrissey's intro was more brief than that one consisting of a voice cursing with all the dirtiest names in the English vocabulary. It seemed to have been a piano (a sonata). He came in wearing a suit and a tie, as the smoother weather permitted this time. His voice is still not a hundred percent - 85 to 90 I would say. As you will see, because I can't remember sequences even if I go back to forth, he changed the set list completely. "Life Is A Pigsty" again, "How Soon Is Now", "Whatever Happens, I Love You" :) and "I Changed My Plea To Guilty" were the highlights for me. No stage climbing: either the Bostonians are too well-behaved or the security were too tight or both. The sound was OK, I prefer closed venues, so I hope to hear them at The Orpheum Theater. At moments, according to someone I chatted with on my way home, they had to ajust it. On the other hand, it could be my ears, since after the show, I was really dizzy, probably because, like my father I have a tendency to have labirinthitis. But you don't need to know that. I checked the set list, and it is what he sang tonight, for sure. Dizzy, but not crazy. (Just a little)

    He spoke to Julia once, and it was just to ask how she was doing, and he asked her another funny question I can't remember (sorry, maybe I'll remember tomorrow or someone more lucid will).

    As as first timer seeing Morrissey (well, second first timer), the impression he gave me is that he is the most gentle and sweet man in the world. I had that impression when he picked the first bouquet of flowers, in the way he received it - but then he swayed it over the crowd, but, well, gently put a second bouquet near the drums. Does anybody have a more accurate version? Good night, I am passed out.

  • I am writing this from my hotel room really pissed off. I have been going to see Morrissey since 1991. This time I had the time and money to see all the California shows and buy tickets for Boston and MSG. I went to the first "cancelled" show and flew back for this one from California and I have to say this was the laziest, clueless, rude, misinformed Morrissey audience I have ever been a part of. I was in the fourth row and the asshole in front of me with a mullet asked me to stop singing with my best friend that has been going to all the concerts with me and he also told me to put my hands down!! I told him to go fuck himself. The crowd consisted of middle aged sociopath loners who think Morrissey represents their lifestyle (which he doesn't), teeny boppers who just discovered the smiths screaming for smiths songs, and drunk Boston assholes with mullets and Aerosmith t-shirts who know nothing about Morrissey.

    Just a little Morrissey etiquette. Don't be gulping down your sausage kraut steak dog in line while your waiting. Have some respect for Morrissey. You can tell Morrissey couldn't stand the sight of you disgusting Bostonians or whatever you call yourselves. He was just sick of the bad press and didn't want to alienate every fan out east. He got nothing from this crowd just standing their complaining with their arms folded. You people were so lucky his management made him return to your third rate old disgusting smelly city so he could save face. There must be a reason he starts all his U.S. tours in California dumbasses. He can't stand the sight of you fat, lazy, wannabe, pasty, pigs. Oh, yeah and wear is all the Irish influence in this town we all here of. I felt like I was in some old smelly colonial English town in the 18th century. I thought the orange army was going start marching down the street any minute bashing heads.

    The audience in San Diego deserved a re-schedule more than you assholes.

  • you sounded awful tonight.
    Anonymous -- Saturday July 07 2007, @09:57PM (#266876)
  • I was very pleased with the set. Not one of the best times I have seen him, but definitely better than the last time I saw him in Boston in 2004. His voice sounded pretty good considering, and the song selection was excellent.

    Personal highlights...

    - he came out wearing a tuxedo
    - Opened with "Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want"
    - I liked that after he came back from walking off stage briefly during "Let Me Kiss You" he said "you see, I left and then I came back, absolutely amazing."
    - I liked "You're Gonna Need Someone On Your Side" as an encore. I would have liked to have heard "The Queen Is Dead" again, however.
    - Absolutely loved "Last of the Famous International Playboys" and "National Front Disco". Two of my favorite Morrissey songs and performed much better than last time (esp. "NFD")

    lowlights...

    - I thought the piano intro was good, but I much prefer that female British voice that just recites all kinds of awful things before he comes on stage (is this taken from somewhere?), it really builds the anticipation nicely.
    - I really wanted to hear "suedehead" as I don't think I have ever seen that live (maybe at the apollo? I can't remember.) In general, more songs from "Viva Hate" need to be played. Also, where the hell were songs from "Vauxhall"?!?!

    Has Morrissey ever done "Piccadilly Palare" or "Sing Your Life" in recent years? I would absolutely love to hear those songs.

    All in all, I am really glad that he cut the show short a few weeks back because it ended up in getting 1.33 Morrissey shows for the price of one. Sweet deal in my book.

  • This was the first time I've seen Morrissey (if you don't count the partial show). I'm a huge Smiths and Viva Hate fan. Haven't really listened to much since then, but recently re-disovered it. Glad I did, I really missed this music. I'm going to check out some of his new stuff. Any recommendations to start with?

    Re the show, I thought it was GREAT! His voice wasn't off. This isn't American Idol. He seemed very chatty and I thought very endearing to audience. A charming man indeed! :) The Smiths songs were nice. I'd say the venue was 80% occupancy, which was a bit of a drag.

    I'll def see him again. I'd like to do it in a diff city though. Maybe oversea's.

    Oh, and to the few MORONIC parents who brought their three or four year olds, get a clue and a baby sitter. Your poor kids ear drums were getting blown away.

  • moz just needs to leave the u.s. and come back to europe where he's appreciated and understood.
    he has to has to stop a show and cancel date due to illness - you're (understandably) upset.
    he really tries to reschedule, even though he's still not fully recovered - still not good enough.

    i hope he never tours the u.s. again, you don't deserve him.

    (for the record, i'm exaggerating here, i know a lot of americans truly love moz, and a lot of the people who went to this show enjoyed it. it's just frustrating when people have the privelege of seeing the man, and then they don't even appreciate it. get over yourselves or stay at home.)

In the east, it has been, for me, a more demanding, complaining crowd, and especially in boston everyone is dressed as a redsox or aerosmith fan. wicked awesome as they seem to say.

  • shame on all of you who would silence Morrissey from speaking out for animals.I watched the movie "Fast Food Nation" last night. I highly recommend it. If anyone doesn't understand why Moz insists on a "no meat sales" clause in his contracts, watch this film and meet your meat. Look them in the face as they die. In addition to showing the ultimate commodization of living creatures, the film also shows how the meat packing industry contributes to the forced labor of "illegal" Mexican immigrants. Its a modern day version of The Jungle by Upton Sinclair.
    I know many of the facts shown in the film to be true. Chicken farms on the eastern shore of Maryland are notorious for these kinds of practices and I have met people who were de facto slaves there in the 1990s.
    I love that Morrissey speaks out against the horrible flesh-mongering restaurants he encounters "on his way to the forum" each night. they are a plague upon our planet. there is no other person out there in the public eye who is as relentless in their advocacy for animals than Moz. and that's # 42 on my list of Reasons To Love Morrissey today. oh, and I send my love to Boston. a city dear to my heart.

    and as for me, I stand with the tribe of Morrissey.
  • Morrissey was in top form. His voice was great. As is always the case with him, it wasn't perfect and perhaps it was a bit strained when he didn't really finish the lyrics to Pigsty but the difference between You Have Killed me for this show vs the cancelled one are so completely different. Last night it was really BIG vocally.

    Morrissey was a bit less talkative than usual but we got a 21 song set list. He mixed up a LOT from what he tried to the other week.

    The band was great. Highlights for me were actually all solo songs.

    Whatever Happens I Love You
    National Front Disco
    You're Gonna Need
    Life is a Pigsty
    I Just Want to See the Boy Happy
    In the Future When All's Well
    I've Changed My Please to Guilty
    All You Need is Me
    That's How People Grow Up

    In no particular order, those were all the highlights.

    Lowlights were Boy with the Porn and At Last I am Born. Just don't do anything for me.

    This show was fantastic, well worth the wait and well worth the $500 for the pair of tickets.

  • There were many big cheers during the Morrissey show Saturday night at the Bank of America Pavilion.
    His arrival was met with an ovation. The doffing of his shirt during the melancholic yet sultry "Let Me Kiss You" evoked lusty hoots. Beatlemaniac al fervor erupted at the first hint of the ominous swaggering guitar surge of the Smiths classic "How Soon is Now?" And of course the closing of the regular set, with the thick grooves of " The National Front Disco," prompted the usual encore chanting. But it was the simple act of leaving the stage -- to procure a new shirt -- and returning that garnered perhaps the most feverish appreciation.
    "You see I went and then I came back. Absolutely amazing," quipped the Mozzer.
    You see the first time he did that, on June 26, he didn't come back. Sidelined by a throat ailment , Morrissey postponed the rest of the show. (And several dates thereafter. )
    For those who were able, and willing, to attend the make-up date, Saturday night's exhilarating, note-perfect performance was the best kind of apology. No formal one was forthcoming from the stage , but he did arrive in a tux and melodramatically prostrate himself in supplication .
    Acknowledging the rows of empty seats at the back of the Pavilion, for what was originally a sold-out show, Morrissey offered an insouciant raspberry to "the nasty little minority who had refunds." (Mercifully, the brutal humidity that swamped the first show did not make the return engagement either.)
    Mrs. Morrissey didn't raise no fool , as her son wisely frontloaded the well-paced, 90-minute show with crowd favorites like apropos opener "Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want," "How Soon is Now?", the swinging "First of the Gang to the Die," and the dreamy "Every Day is Like Sunday."
    As is typical, Morrissey's band -- driven by the twin engines of guitarist Boz Boorer and meticulous but hard-hitting drummer Matt Walker -- backed his creamy croon with taste and fire, making dramatic shifts in dynamic and tempo from the pop flounce of "Girlfriend in a Coma" to the prog-rock theatrics of "Life Is a Pig Sty."
    From the volume and intensity of the response of the famously ardent Morrissey fan base, all was clearly forgiven.

  • Moz brings out 21 a song set playing a "make good" show 'cause he couldn't finish last time. little "overlap " from the aborted 7 song show. I"D SAY HE MADE GOOD! I Seem to remember people (usually anon) complaining how Moz went those 7 songs to "satisfy the contract" (like they had a clue) how moz is greedy, doesn't care, ect...all other postponed shows will be delt with. I dont think he'll cancel any of them unless he gets ill for an extended time. People some how want to look under the surface for things that are not there. They people who were saying Moz shouldda done this or that are now saying he sounded bad at the last show..

  • Jed Gottlieb, "Pavilion's the land of Moz at last," Boston Herald [bostonherald.com] , July 8, 2007, Pg. 33.

    Morrissey and his voice are back - as are all the singer's wonderful affectations, including his pretentious-and-then-some flair for the dramatic.

    Last month, Morrissey cut short his Bank of America Pavilion show after performing just seven songs. He complained of nagging vocal troubles, although many in the audience didn’t notice anything amiss. But Moz made a roaring return, as much as the exaggeratedly coy singer can roar, last night at the Pavilion to a diminished but still-adoring crowd.

    Ever the flamboyant playboy, the former Smiths frontman came out all smiles and pretense in a dapper tux that made him look like REM's Michael Stipe starring in a Roger Moore biopic. Giving concertgoers just what they wanted, he jumped into a set of mostly hits and Smiths classics starting with, ahem, "Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want."

    After spectacularly falling to one knee during the outro of "Get What I Want," he continually topped his magnificent histrionics. During the great unhinged finale to "How Soon Is Now?" he collapsed on the stage in mock exhaustion as the drummer banged his Spinal Tap-esque gong over and over again. When the monkey suit got too hot, he stripped down, and later tore off his shirt, sending buttons flying into the first few rows during "Let Me Kiss You."

    Last time around he pulled the same stunt during the same song, only this time he didn’t decamp to his tour bus for the remainder of the night.

    Not about to let the rescheduled Hub show get the best of him, Morrissey quipped, "To the nasty little minority that have refunds," and blew a demure-but-smarmy raspberry.

    While there were a few empty rows in the back, the front of the house was full of ecstatic love and forgiveness. Moz enthusiasts aren’t the type to hold a grudge against their idol, and fan favorites "Last of the Famous International Playboys" and "Every Day Is Like Sunday" were met with big, cathartic sing-alongs.

    If there’s a knock against Morrissey’s gig, well, other than the twitish, Zoolander posing he loves so, it's that his sound is becoming increasingly thick. His five-piece band is talented - especially Jesse Tobias and Boz Boorer - but they can clobber the Smiths' delicate songs with bloat.

    Opener KRISTEENYOUNG attracted even fewer fans this time around - less than 10 percent were in their seats for the set. Young is a mishmash of eccentricity: Kate Bush's voice, Jerry Lee Lewis' piano playing and Bjork's style, all behind John Bonham-influenced drumming.

    Not really a bad mishmash, just a poor pairing with the pop of Morrissey.

    Morrissey, with KRISTEENYOUNG At the Bank of America Pavilion, last night.

    Sarah Rodman, "Morrissey's return is much appreciated," Boston Globe [boston.com] , July 9, 2007, Sec. C, Pg. 5.

    There were many big cheers during the Morrissey show Saturday night at the Bank of America Pavilion.

    His arrival was met with an ovation. The doffing of his shirt during the melancholic yet sultry "Let Me Kiss You" evoked lusty hoots. Beatlemaniac al fervor erupted at the first hint of the ominous swaggering guitar surge of the Smiths classic "How Soon is Now?" And of course the closing of the regular set, with the thick grooves of " The National Front Disco," prompted the usual encore chanting. But it was the simple act of leaving the stage -- to procure a new shirt -- and returning that garnered perhaps the most feverish appreciation.

    "You see I went and then I came back. Absolutely amazing," quipped the Mozzer.

    You see the first time he did that, on June 26, he didn't come back. Sidelined by a throat ailment , Morrissey postponed the rest of the show. (And several dates thereafter. )
