  • Setlist was similar to the previous shows...am expecting surprises to pop up as he does more shows. Either way, this was a wonderful show the Ruth Eckerd Hall show I went to a few months ago was a lot better...

    Give me a few hours or so to try and write an in depth review for my Myspace blog.

    Oh, by the way, there was NO press conference...

    Kewpie is a cunt and everyone knows it...
  • Been to many moz shows and...well...what can I say, tonight was very different: 1) The crowd seemed to be enjoying the show and very relaxed for LA standards 2) It seemed like an informal gig...garage session if you will...but with better sound. At one point during LMKY Moz could not stop laughing. 2 mistakes on other songs in which the band had to start all over. 3) Set-list was great; one of the best in many tours/years 4) I only had 1 drink so I am a pretty good source of information...this time. 5) Crowd seemed very young 6) Only 3/4 full...not much yelling for encore 7) A few boos for the Chivas kits from the crowd. What can I say, Atletico Bilbao from Spain is the only other team that allows non-nationals to play on its side...yes, these kits were Chivas USA and they do allow all nationalities to play, but Moz is playing to Mexican mystique of the team (Moz wore #14?).

    So, in a nutshell the gig could be described as a gooolllaazzoooo scored during a practice match..

  • Does anyone have an extra set of 2 tickets for 10/6 and 10/13 shows? I will be driving in from Stockton for these shows and unfortunately I believe they are sold out. So, if anyone has any extra tickets or know of anyone who cant make it and would be willing to sell them to a fellow big Moz fan, please let me know. Also face value is all I can afford considering Ive got gas to pay for. Send me an email if you know anything. [email protected]

    Great show, good crowd. Lot's of energy. During All You Need Is Me, some girl made it on stage and attacked Moz, she jumped on his back and kissed him, open mouthed, while his tongue was out! He pulled away in horror and proclaimed it "Disgusting!" Later during the show, he alluded to it and said something to the effect of "Earlier, I was kissed by some one who was siphoning gas from a 747....or it was the Stella." Classic, I loved it! He helped a few would be stage invaders on stage. He was chatty and seemed like he was in a great mood and having a really good time. During I Like You, he was shading his eyes from the lights and just looking in to the crowd. It seemed he was really trying to look at all of our faces. I certainly appreciated it, don't know if some of the drunks idiots around us did. Though I shouldn't complain, last show I went to in Vegas, I was pretty drunk too. During the encore, Moz and the boys came out in full Chivas uniforms, socks and shorts! Too funny. Moz said they would do anything to be popular. Night ended with me catching a guitar pick off the chest. Looking forward to tomorrow, maybe I can get closer next time.

  • All of the stage crew wore "Moz Posse" T-shirts.
    Morrissey's first words were, "Welcome to my living room".
    During All you need is me Morrissey faced the crowd closing his eyes and opened his mouth not expecting the female fan going up on stage to kiss him full on the lips. She was carried away as Moz wiped his mouth with his sleeve and saying: "Disgusting!". LOL. Morrissey tries to keep serious during Dear God Please Help Me because of the crowd's reaction to the lyrics I have explosive kegs between my legs and I am spreading your legs with mine in between to which he signs with a smirk, "this is a very serious song." Sorry for the grammar, i just got back and im so very tired...and thats the funniest stuff i remember.

    Hear my voice in your head and think of me kindly!
  • An absolutely great show. Perfect venue for a Moz gig. After the show was over, there was a crowd of approximately 12 people fighting for the Chivas jersey thrown out by Morrissey. One guy pulled out a razor blade and was cutting small pieces from the jersey. I finally had the courage to reach in for a chance at some of it and came away with a piece of the jersey with the letters S-T and what looks like an E. Was Morrissey the only person to throw out a jersey? If so, What exactly did it say on the back of it? Please help me figure it out.

  • So this is my 6th morrissey show, and I have to say this was the best one:
    great sound
    great small venue
    good crowd
    AMAZING setlist. it really blended well together for once I wasn't bored.
    Strech out and wait, Sister I'm a Poet, and Why Don't you find out for yourself really stuck out. :) Anyone who is going to the next few shows is really gonna be in for a great time.

    ALSO: ANYONE SELLING A TICKET FOR 10/9th or 10/12? Let me know prefer Front of the Line tickets. [email protected]

  • I've seen Moz 9 times this year and tonight's show was the best.

    He sounded great and the band was tight. Great set list and it flowed really well. Morrissey seemed to be in a great mood.

    The whole show felt special like it was a small private gig - no drama like the usual Morrissey shows, the crowd was actually great.

    Very funny to see him come out in full Chivas gear - shorts and all.

  • Well first off the show was great. That whore that got on stage was kinda cool in a creepy kinda way since she kinda stole it from him. ALso, to the fucken hip hop kids who were next to me. Well, WTF? I just almost didn't get it. Maybe i am getting displaced by time.
        Anyway, Not too many people. Yet enough to make it about a third full. (4000 capacity). Excellent nostalgic moments rendered by DODD. What can I say. I loved it!

    So I went by myself. Who else is MOZ-SOLO?

  • What time did Morrissey come on?

    Also, what about the people who had the special tickets and were let in early...what time did they let the special ticket holders in?

    And if you were a special ticket holder allowed up front, did that mean you couldn't ever leave your spot to get a drink or go to the restroom without losing your spot? Thanks!

  • because I am delirious! Amazing!!!! This is the closest that I have ever been to him (2nd row). He has the most gorgeous eyes. He really did do his best in making eye contact with the crowd. At one point he sang the lyrics, "Please Stand Up and Defend Me" he was looking right into my eyes. Oh, I felt like he really meant it. His eyes showed so much passion, love & appreciation for his fans. He knows that he is truly loved. His sense of humor and witty charm had us laughing throughout the night especially during, "Dear God, Please Help Me". Yes...the crowd was going crazy with the lyrics, "I have explosive kegs between my legs & now I'm spreading your legs with mine in between yours". He is such a tease....he is so gorgeous!!!! He only gets better looking with age...at least for me he does. Set-list was great even though I was hoping for a change. He has so many songs to chose from. I really hope we get to hear a variety of songs the next 9 shows in L.A. I think we have earned it. Morrissey....I love you!!!! Thanks for another great night!!!!

  • Is it just me, or does anyone else agree that $15 for parking is simply a rip-off. Does anyone know where else you can park? At the last concert that I attended at the Palladium, I got my car towed away from the street. I'm still kind of scared of that happening again. If anyone knows where else parking is allowed....please, please, please, let me know. I can't afford $150 just for parking for these 10 shows. Thanks!!!!

  • WITH THE HELP OF MY DIGITAL AUDIO RECORDING:

    - no intro, came right out, mikey played weird charlie brown-type piano part then..."WELCOME TO MY LIVING ROOM!"

    - right into STOP ME

    - right into TOMORROW! (highlight of the night)

    - the HOTTEST woman in the whole place, who we from the beginning of the night b4 the opener went on , go onstage and kissed moz, to which he replied "disgusting!" - security totally wasn't ready for her. high heels, leopard-print mini skirt, you could almost see her cootch when the security guy grabbed her - the skirt was that short!...but the bottom half were like shorts, i think she knew she was gonna get up and wanted to cover herself....is this shit staged? she ran from the side of the stage, so someone let her up there

    - the mexicans went NUTS during The Loop!

    - band intros: finally caught him sayin the same thing (solomon walker's IDENTICAL twin matt walker)....there goes that record

    - let me kiss you - "all over los angeles"

    - handed the mic to 2 people including julie...sounded pretty staged to me on both people

    - said "lifetime residency at the hollywood palladium"

    - said "i don't know how it happened....but...it's October already"

    - laughed during Dear God Please Help Me when all the girls cheered "spreading your legs"...changed lyrics to "this is a serious song", then laughed

    - totally changed the lyrics on First Of the Gang! little emo kid surfed up to the front and moz said "this is Hector now!"

    - 2 stage intruders in total - both girls - one about 13 yrs old and fugly, the other that hot latina supermodel - if anyone got pics i gotta see those!

    - about 9 different bootlegs shirts - 2 of them very awesome, 3 different lithos - only one was the best w/ all the dates and "Moz shuts down the palladium". only $10 too

  • When did this infatuation with this soccer team start? I know when he went to see them play in LA it was posted he had a "friend" on the team but isn't he taking this a little too far? I don't ever recall him supporting any team, let alone wearing their jerseys and complete uniform. I don't understand unless he is trying to get even more mexicans to love him by wearing a chivas USA uniform.

  • The Palladium ought to consider setting up additional barricades to protect people closest to the front. I was at the very front, the crowd was extremely aggressive. I got crushed. There was a girl who got mauled as she was caught in the cross fire of Morrissey's shirt. Since the entire venue is general admission, you have all the people in the back pushing up - therefore those who are in front feel the weight of the entire venue pushing on them. It’s actually quite dangerous. I’m concerned for Saturday when it’ll be even more packed.

  • We made a banner welcoming Moz back "home", but as usual, the Palladium security were being fascist about it, so I had to trash it before the pat down. The security woman patted me between the tits, but it didn't get more invasive than that.

    Thanks to all the wonderful people on the house right side of the stage (Mikey Farrell side), it was fun and energetic, not brutal or rude.

    Crowd was very appreciative and more excitable, but nowhere near as violent as in the 90s. Certainly more civilised than the last time Moz played the Palladium. I was allowed into the venue early in '99, but I decided not to take a place front and center at the barricade because I enjoy having my cranium intact. I went up to the balcony and made a homemade banner declaring we could have both. Moz had a very funny response to it...and played it on the next leg of the tour. Even though I was in the balcony, I still was not able to escape harm in '99. A thug got into a fight, knocked into me and caused me to fall down the stairs, twisting my ankle. Also, a boy was stabbed...dunno if his money was grabbed, but well, you know the rest.

    I forgot to mention that ever since the last SF show, Moz has not been using entrance music. At the Palldium, there was no backdrop, just the house red curtains. I forgot to note that in SF (last night), Mikey played "Clang Clang Went the Trolley" which I believe is actually from the musical Meet Me in St. Louis, but the whole trolley reference is very San Franciscan if cliche'd because only tourists ride the trolleys there. I laughed my ass off when I heard this song because it's so silly. Musicals are really gay, huh? ; )

    In Moz Angeles, Mikey played a little bit from "Hooray for Hollywood". Very fitting. Then Moz welcomed us to his living room and his "lifelong residency". Viva Moz!

    For the first time, I noticed fuggin' TOM JONES singing "What's New Pussycat?" in the pre-show music. Incredible. But it wasn't even as funny as all the things Moz said onstage. I chuckled myself to sleep thinking about it. It's been reported already, so I won't rehash it. Oh so many things, I can't remember them all, but it was certainly the most fun night on this leg of the tour so far. Except for the hoochie running up onstage to force her tongue into his mouth. I actually said, "THat's disgusting!" before Morrissey said it was disgusting. Later on in the show he remarked that he thinks that that girl was probably siphoning jet fuel from a 747 with her mouth. Hah hah!

    I just want to add that when he spoke instead of sang the words "Dear God, please help me" in response to the hilarity of the crowd's response to explosive kegs between his legs, he actually turned around, pretended to collapse helplessly against the drum riser and then did a couple of impressive push-ups on the drum riser. When he was stifling laughter and singing "This is a serious song" in place of the normal lyrics, I thought of the LOL Mozzer thread on the discussion board -- This R sirius song. Pls B mor sirius, k? Thx, bye.

    Eduardo asked Moz why Moz plays L.A. so much and despite it being obvious, he said he wanted to hear it from Moz himself. Moz sang a song and addressed Eduardo directly and said that was his answer.

    When I got the mic, I asked Moz to please accept a manga fanzine created by my friend who had come all the way from Japan to see him (we were separated and on opposite sides of the stage). Moz asked, "What does that have to do with me?" I told him it was a book all of him. I should've added that the artwork is totally brilliant and enjoyable even if you don't read Japanese. It's manga, which is mostly visual anyway. He lied and said the only Japanese he knows is "kabuki". Then he asked if it (what he said) was cruel. No, but he really ought to take Shiho's specially created manga. People were asking to buy it, but it's not for sale.

    I wonder if Moz has been reading my comments on this board because I remember writing that I thought his mocking of the Mexican guy from Puebla was somewhat "

  • Anyone who attended the October 1st. show and took pictures of the show, my daugther was the second stage jumper (not the first one who kiss Morrissey in the mouth). If anyone took pictures and have her pictures and/or a video, please send me a email as soon as possible! Thanks so much in advance!

  • Morrissey's first night at the Palladium, October 1st, was incredible...! Another great performance. Morrissey was chatty, played a great setlist, and many good memories from that show.

    The Line:

    People started lining up for the show the day before. My friend was the first one to be in line around 4 in the afternoon. Then more started showing up around 10 and 11 in the p.m. Robert got there at 4:30 a.m. Chrissie at 6 a.m... and me and Doug showed up at about 11am. It was pretty fun and exciting waiting in line. I wasn't bored or anything; rather nervous and anxious. The 8 hrs in line were well worth it. Plus we met new people, and our friends' friends. Around 3ish o'clock, me and Doug went for a walk around the venue, along to the other side of the building where the back door was. The entrance where all the instruments and musicians go in through. There were no fans there or anyone... just Arturo (Morrissey's bodyguard) and the security guy from the venue. We were talking to the security guard for a while. He confirmed the "press conference" was going to happen. So it did. He also told us Morrissey was NOT yet in the building, so of course we knew he would arrive any minute then. We saw Salomon and Jesse standing there, just chatting. Our of nowhere Kristeen Young appeares with Baby driving a van. She told the security guard "We're the opening act"... then something like 'where do we go' or something like that. She didn't know where to go in from. The guard told her to go and park through the front of the venue where the line was at. We also told her where to go.. Doug gave her directions. As they drove to the red light, Kristeen just gets out of the van and starts walking towards us, to get in through the back Instead.. kinda funny, she didnt want to be seen by the fans.. Doug, I need help, what did she say? Something about " i dont want the people to cheer" or "booo me" haha I dont know, but it was kind of nice seeing and talking to her. Anyway, we then saw Arturo make a signal to the security guard meaning someone was arriving.. tun tun tun!! Could it be Morrissey? hahaha... I turned to the right side of the street to see if any car came... and as I turned right, he was coming in really fast in his BMW Z4. Eddie was driving, and him being in the passenger seat. He had a funny look kinda smily/ tapping his knees with his hands .. he def saw us. Doug waved hello and I just stood there shocked. I couldn't believe it. I didn't even have time to take him a pic. Everything happened so quickly. But yes!!!! We got lucky to be the only one's to see Morrissey arrive.

    We came back to the line and kept waiting. Since it was the first show, we didn't really know how the special ticket line was going to work out. At first the security guards said there was only going to be one line, but that had to be bullshit. I had the special ticket, and there was no way I wasn't going to be able to get in before everyone else. 15 till 7 I guess we knew they would honor us going in first. They lined us up, checked us, and scanned out ticket. I thought it was funny when the guy came out telling us... "anyone drinking, I need to see your id." Haha.. no one pulled out shit. It was less than one hundred of us in that special line, and no one wanted a wrist band to drink"... haha he looked surprised. All we wanted is to run and get our spot by the stage haha.. forget drinks its Morrissey. Anyway, they warned us before they opened the doors about running. As soon as they gave us the go, I RAN, i mean RAN to the stage. Straight in, to the left down a walkway, another left straight to the stage. I was running so fast I could make it in the olympics hahahha. I could of made a hugggge leap. It was funny. I thought it was really funny. I lost everyone.. all my friends, though I ended up right by Doug because I saw him, and ran where he was. I was sooooo happy that I ended up right on the rail. Front row. The fast running paid off well. hahahha.

    So music played... then Kristeen Young took the stage. The waiting
