    I cannot wait to see Moz on this tour! It's brilliant that he's still wowing his audience after so many years.

  • I just want to say that the show was a great success in both performance and presentation. While some stylistic elements carried over from the previous tour, the show remained fresh enough to keep me intrigued throughout. Morrissey is always captivating and never fails to get the crowd involved. It was an honor to see him in such an intimate venue. The crowd at Sunshine was affable and enthusiastic. Thanks to Morrissey and all the great people I met for making this an inimitable experience.

  • My girlfriend last minute got tickets to the Albuquerque Morrissey show (she’s not in a comma). I have known and loved much of Morrissey’s work. But I have never gotten the chance to see the Smiths or any of the Morrissey solo tours. I knew he would be a strong performer but never seemed to be able to get to one of his shows. So last night was quite a treat. The evening started out with cool vintage video, my favorite being the New York Dolls. The set list was a nice combination of Smiths tunes and Morrissey solo tunes. The lighting was beautifully done. The strong man silhouette back drop added a classic Morrissey type of vintage image that he has always liked to use. The band was tight and hard edged. No wimpy moments here just punk rock roots. And Morrissey the performer was great. He shook people’s hands through out the show. He ripped his sweaty shirt off twice throwing one of them to his rabid fans. He changed he shirt multiple times through out the evening. He pushed the mike into people faces getting them to talk or sing. This man is a great showman enjoying every minute of his performance. I enjoyed every minute. Thank you Mr. Morrissey.

  • ... as usual.

    I've seen Morrissey three times now (two on the Quarry tour, and now this show), and this was by far my best experience. His voice and musician/performer-ship is remarkable for his age, and is inspiring in all sorts of ways.

    No one made it on to the stage, because security was on it, but there was certainly some crowd surfing towards the end, and a despicable amount of infighting amongst fans over tossed out shirts and the like.

    Moz's band was really rocking too, and the openers were pretty fabulous, and adorable, although we couldn't understand a word the lead singer sang...

    the old music videos in between sets were delightful. If you get a chance to see this tour, GO!

  • This was definately one of my greatest Morrissey experiences. Of course the band and Morrissey were excellent, awesome energy, interaction with the crowd. I'm not good at writing reviews or anything, I'll leave that up to I just want to thank everybody (you know who you are) who helped vanessa and I get our rightfully earned spots at a venue that had no consideration for anything except their cash flow. you made our trip worth while. also, it was great meeting lots of new wonderful people who i hope to see sometime again in the future. and thanks k-puppy for the water, i wanted to thank you after the show, didnt see you though.

    The show was great, hot, crowded -- the venue is cramped and old and crusty and steep and oddly configured, but the sound was loud and clear. Morrissey went through about 6 shirts.

    It seemed Morrissey didn't quite know what to make of the rather subdued but enthusiastic and capacity crowd: we're an odd bunch in a small, humble city, unaccustomed to having the likes of Morrissey visit us. The crowd was really grateful and quite vocal between songs; no stage jumpers or fawners, really -- or there were, but they fawned from afar. The look on Morrissey's face when someone handed him a cheap, bent, faux dandelion was priceless. The responses of some audience members to Morrissey's occasional questions ("The thrilling thing about living in this city is . . .?") were downright embarrassing; to wit: "beggars!" Huh? Again, the look on his face was priceless.

    He threw out "gracias!" a number of times, and Jesse Tobias uttered a Spanish phrase or two. The Mexican flag with Morrissey's face on it was hung on Jesse's amp for the encore.

    Awaiting the doors opening, we happened to meet a very polite and unassuming Jesse Tobias in a nearby Thai restaurant -- he was looking for Japanese.

    Show over, trucks roll up, band out of town.

  • i dont know about a subdued crowd....i thought everyone went ballistic and it looked like morrissey was proud and humbled by the reception.
    wasnt at any of the other shows but im guessing if you asked moz and the band it was in the top 5 easily...the place was packed, people standing hours in line waiting to get in....the line went on 4 ever.. the courteeners were tight and a good way to start off...a little britpop pulp feel...then moz came on and seriously sounded so great the band was awesome....same setlist for the most part except gf in a coma was a suprise...
    the reason why there have been little response about the show is that ppl here might not know of the sight or whatever dont really know....anyway an awesome show all round

  • To any fans who missed this show, I'm very sorry but you missed the greatest, most intimate show ever done in a long time by Moz. The Sunshine Theater was a hole in the wall no bigger than the Echoplex in LA. Possibly even as small as The Echo. It felt like maybe 300-400 people were there tops. In El Paso, Moz staff expressed concern that this was a "tough venue" and it was possibly because it was so small. There was a barrier and a maybe 4-foot moat that no one ever got more than a handshake from.

    Audience: very polite and cool. A mix of L.A., New Mexico and Texas folks who all pretty much got along. There was a bar on one corner of the venue where about 50 folks were lined up and let in early. DJ played some good goth stuff while people inside there and out in line waited. It started to get really cold and windy (atchoo!), so not a moment too soon when we finally got in. I got a great view 2nd row deep, house right, a hair out of reach from being able to shake Moz's hand. Oh well.

    The Courteeners did extremely well in this-sized venue. They were all crunched together on the front of the little stage with their equipment, it was almost divey. Liam (singer) felt the audience energy much closer and was able to give back so much more emotionally and openly in his singing. It's probably what they're more used to in smaller bars and clubs in England. The band was also making a lot of smiley eye contact with the crowd. "Sycophant" was the best number for me imho. Liam thanked audience members who were becoming recognizable after going to several shows and said this would be their last show supporting Moz on this US tour. They would be hopping immediately on a plane to Coachella after their set.

    The screen for the intermission videos was tiny (!) but seemed to work fine for the size of crowd/venue. A lot of the lights for the set were left out because there simply was no room. Then projection screen was raised (like the type in a classroom), and we saw during the intro piano ("You'll Never Walk Alone") how they were able to fit the equipment of Moz's band. Chris (Pooley)'s keyboard stuff was nearly hidden off-stage from the view I had!

    Moz walked on in a black suit, white shirt (?), tie with checkered Elvis images. The boyz in brown button downs, rolled up sleeves, black bowties, soft grey slacks. I think the next shirt change for Moz was the black button down which was thrown out for LMKU (thrown to middle), then the last shirt was a very stylish dark brown with white checkers. He looked great in that! Sweated in a heart in back and then actually showed some under-tit sweat (first time at least I've noticed it there. Any sweat is sexy on Moz and the boyz anyway, though!)

    The show itself was overall so intimate with Moz making lots of personal eye contact with audience members, showing a lot of gratitude to fans for making it out there. Lots of nonverbal teases for hugs and then once again "Get the message?!" People didn't really try to get up, though, until the encore. But he and audience reached out for many handshakes throughout.

    Girlfriend in a Coma was the surprise of the evening. I nearly cried while hearing it. It was just special to hear this classic. It was played in place of Death of a Disco Dancer in the usual setlist (which is beginning to sound a bit like Siouxsie's version of Dear Prudence, has anyone else heard this in the chords as the band plays?). Moz did a lot of muppet voice short outbursts between songs in the first part of the show, which I think affected LMKU with the cold air maybe also thinning out his vocal chords. He was obviously a bit taken aback. We all kept on singing with him, and after some internal adjustment (the mind/thoughts are to the voice what the keys are to a piano, my voice teacher says) Moz anchored his voice and was flawless the rest of the show. There was a printed sign on one of the speakers stating "No noise before 5pm" so perhaps there wasn't time for a real warmup/soundcheck before the show, too. I saw while driving past the venue aro

  • -- Morrissey enters wearing a Dundee United football shirt from the late 80s, declaring that he has ditched his romance for Rome and has fallen in love with Scotland - revealing the back of his football shirt to be emblazoned with "McMorrissey" and "69". On turning round to face the audience again he remarks "my 2 favourite sports" which is met by a chorus of groans

    Tony the Pony
    I'm throwing my arms around Partick
    Donald, Where's my troosers? (sexually ambiguous version of a Scottish classic)
    Michael's Bone (after which Morrissey tells a crude anecdote about Michael Stipe)
    How soon is awch aye the noo?

    --Brief Intermission during which Morrissey has a go at Edward II in an exaggerated and slightly offensive Scottish accent whilst Boz attempts to play the bagpipes. The two dogs seen in the "Paris" video wander onto the stage, Matt Walker accidently treds on one having just lept over an accordion whilst Morrissey screams at the stage crew "Haw Bawbags, gonnae take these fucking runts aff the stage"

    Golden Lights
    Come on Eileen (Dexy's Midnight Runners Cover)
    At Amber
    By Jove, Please Help Me

    --Brief Intermission in which Boz eats a fried Mars Bar as Morrissey shouts Scottish swear words at him whilst glugging Irn Bru. Solomon Walker leads the crowd with "I'll take the High Road..."

    Let the right one slip in
    When Last I Spoke to Doreen
    Papa Jack

    ENCORE-- (Before which Morrissey takes a seat on a torn armchair with a glass of whiskey,
    shouting profanities at the audience)

    Swallow on My Neck
    Striptease with a Difference

    After this, Morrissey is led out by the Boghall and Bathgate Pipe Band, baring his arse from
    under a kilt as Boz haggles with the Ice Cream vendor over the price of a "bottle of ginger"
