  • Waited for Moz in the cold, but he wasn't in the mood to socialize and ran onto the bus. Great show anyway - thanks Moz for coming to Minneapolis again.

  • another good show (Score:2, Interesting)

    I actually found this a bit better than Chicago -- but then, I was much closer to the front. Still, the sound seemed better, and also, Moz seemed a little higher-energy to me, and smilier. He rather charmingly thanked us for standing (it was a seated venue) -- and "for standing us."

    Morrissey also handed the mike around the front row at one point, and when someone said they loved him unconditionally, he said it wasn't enough...then gave us a little smile.

    There were several attempts (some semi-successful) at stage crashing, the security response to which seemed a bit harsh. Still, it made for a rather exciting encore.

    And Moz and the lads were looking fit in plaid shirts and jeans -- I must say, Moz is dashing in a tux, but I far prefer the jeans.

    Finally, as has been mentioned, "Life Is A Pigsty" was the notable set change, and in my opinion, it was a treat, even if it was for sad reasons (Moz said it was dedicated to a friend (whose name I evidently didn't hear correctly -- anyone?) who'd died in London today). I've heard it live before, but I love it, and I enjoyed it as much as ever tonight.

  • A fine show (Score:1, Informative)

    Minneapolis was treated to its first Morrissey show since 2000. I agree that this was a fine show. Morrissey was energetic and a delight to watch. I've seen Moz five times, and this was one of the better performances (the best?). Everything worked well together--the band, the sound, the lights. Morrissey seemed to hit all the notes dead-on (which he doesn't always do live, right?). I've been keeping track of the set list throughout the tour, and frankly wasn't too excited about it. However, I was very happy with how it turned out and how it was performed.

    The show lasted about an hour and a half, which I also think is the longest Morrissey show I've seen. I was in the back on the main floor, unfortunately (yet I got tickets online right away, hmmmm?), but the State Theater was a great set-up--sloping floor, great sightlines no matter where you were.

    One funny thing when Moz handed the mike to some people in the front row. One woman asked, "How is your baby?" and the audience laughed. Morrissey said, "Why do you laugh when asking about my baby? I take my baby very seriously." LOL!

  • My Brother Darin and I started out our trek to see Morrissey LIVE and in the flesh early
    morning of April 6th 2009. We arrived at our destination in Minneapolis, MN at the State Theater to find that we could peek into the venue because all that held us eager Morrissey fans back were elegant glass doors adorned with black curtains on the front but were scolded at by security early on for our peeking but that didn't stop other curious Morrissey fans because throughout the day as we
    would come back to see if more Moz fans showed up we saw that they too peeked behind the
    curtain. Since this being my FIRST Morrissey concert were I actually had a SEAT number
    and reserved spot that meant no waiting in line for ONCE YESSS!!! So we decided to see the sites
    around the area of the State Theater and just a block down was Game works which turned out
    to be quite a fun spot to kill time at. We made a rock video of our heads singing and dancing
    on cartoon bodies to the song Venus which I will upload for your youtube pleasure. Then we
    played some resident evil type games except where you have a real gun amongst other games
    they had on the first level. We finally made our way upstairs and come to find they had
    COSMIC BOWLING and for us folk that live in the boonies of South Dakota this was a
    treat!! So we bowled a round then after that excitement we made our way back to the State
    Theater and by this time it was nearing 5 in the afternoon and the show was to start at 7:30 so
    we decided it was time to get some grub and we made our way to a restaurant inside the state
    theater called Rock Bottom and it lived up to its name! The food was at best OK and very
    pricey. After that I decided to go back to my vehicle and get the tickets and my camera and my
    brother was going to just chill and wait in the lobby area. I go outside and as I'm strolling
    along on the sidewalk the sun shining down at me a big shadow is casted along me and I look
    at a big silver bus turn towards the venue and I am thinking, Hmmmm...I wonder if that's
    Moz's bus and it turns to go to the side of the venue about the side where his semi is
    unloading gear into the building. As I am standing on the corner awaiting to see who comes
    out I see HIM I know its HIM because I mean how do you MISS Morrissey's silhouette? So I
    and the fellow walking in front of me take off running to the crowd that was already awaiting
    him of about maybe 8 people of whom I believe have been following him around on the tour
    from California. I rush over and he walks right in front of me shaking hands but refusing
    pictures and all I can say is " Moz! Moz! Moz! just then his strikingly blue eyes turn and look
    at mine and I just smile big he turns and I semi-shout, "how's the baby?" he gives me the
    Morrissey look and smiles and goes into the venue and with that I am in shock I rush back
    into the venue lobby to tell my brother what has just happened! I take him to the scene of the
    excitement where the others are also freaking out about meeting the MAN!! I talk with the
    others that met Morrissey and we discuss how surreal it was and after that Darin and I head
    back to the truck to get the tix and camera. We decide to just wait inside the venue and at
    about 6ish they open the doors and we were the first ones inside!!! I had pit tickets. The pit
    consisted of a two row area that held about 30 of us lucky Morrissey fans. We were in the 2nd
    row and upon talking with security it was my understanding that once Morrissey came on the
    pit became sort of free for all and we could stand at the stage but till then we had to remain in
    our seats. Sir John Betjamin's voice read to us a poem as we sat and awaited the show to
    begin of which the security guard questioned me about asking, "what is this?" upon me telling
    him he gave me a look like "oooohhhkay whatever" insert eye roll here. But after talking to
    this security guard I came to find he was pretty cool and was surprised he didn't get a ticket for

  • I have to say, this was my worst (Moz) concert experience. It was definitely different from seeing him in Los Angeles. There was a lot missing - fans on stage, pompadours and betties :-) The security personnel were unnecessarily rough with fans trying to get to Moz. Boz looked wonderful! And there wasn't much of a fight for Moz' shirt which surprised me...I can't warm up to YOR live just yet. My favourites were The Loop and Death of a Disco Dancer. The crowd were quite unenthused though...I shall continue to see him on the west coast in the future :-)

    "I want to live, & I want to love..."
  • During Sorry Doesn't Help, Morrissey sang "sorry is a just word you find so easy to sing, but you sing it anyway."

    Also, he changed the line "I can't reach you anymore" in Life is a Pigsty to "I can't help you anymore."

    Other lyric changes were as previously done in the tour, including the "military might" line in Ask.

  • I thought the band did a really excellent job of How Soon Is Now? At the end, Matt Walker just went bonkers on the gong and that huge drum behind his kit and it was THUNDEROUS. I would never have imagined that such an amazing song could be made better, but it most definitely was.

  • Can't believe it's been 9 years since being about 20 feet from Moz on the Quest Club's balcony. That was a great show - this was good, but no more than that. Loved the plentitude of Smiths songs, and while HSIN was played like a Smiths tribute band on steroids, it was an interesting version. The Great Man's newer work leaves me a little cold these days. I'm forever stuck in the Smiths/Early Solo loop and the "harder" rock sound has not completely worked for me. The bouncers did seem a little rough with the stage divers, but in this day and age do you want to take a chance - you never know who the nuts are and what they will do. I loved the interaction with passing the mic around the front row, though. I do believe Morrissey loves his fans as much as they love him. Happy to have been there, despite my weak criticisms. I agree that much of the audience seemed half-hearted - my impression was that there were a number of people there who were there just to say they'd been to a Morrissey show to bolster their faux-hipster cred. I've seen Morrissey three times, and The Smiths twice (Glasgow Barrowland - YEAH!) and this was the most restrained audience of all of them.

    Quick question - if anyone sat through the projected music "videos" between the Courteeners and Morrissey, did anyone else think the guy in the all black gear with the pompadour singing the song about twisting or shaking or whatever was a complete douchebag? Because he was.
