    My verdict? Well you shouldn't listen to it because it's biased as, in my eyes, the man can do no wrong. As such, tonight, the man did no wrong. Neither did his band, the support band, anyone around me or any of the fantastic people I met today.

    See you all very soon, I hope, at the Troxy and then its Brixton, Brixton,

  • I may be biased as this was my hometown, but holy christ that was a good gig. He wasnt that talkative, he mumbled something about being holed up in a room with pictures of previous hartlepool mayors which he said were a 'strange' bunch, and he said that on friday the horizon will come...

  • It was the first time I'd been to Hartlepool Borough Hall but I thought it was a great venue.
    Much prefer Morrissey in smaller venues myself. Reminded me of some of the excellent Liverpool Royal Court shows I'd been to.

    While I'm not a massive fan of the new album, some of the tracks came across really well. And 'Ask'? It sounded like a different song.

    Like others on this site, I'd love to see some more early stuff on the set - Alsation Cousin, Little Man What Now etc and maybe a bit more off Southpaw. Maybe I'm being a bit hopeful there mind...

    On the whole, a really enjoyable gig and I hope we'll see him back in Teesside soon.

  • Great venue, great gig, great atmosphere - what more could you want? It was my son's second, Morrissey gig as well, he got to the front and had a great time. Mine - God knows how many! However it was tarnished by one incident I'd like to share with you.
    I was behind first row of people behind the barrier, I'm six feet tall, the girl in front of me just over five foot. Inevitabely my arms would rest on her or hang down in front on to the barrier - what was i supposed to do stick them up in the air or down by my side? Was I jumping up and down, trying to get her out of the road, climb over her or anything else - certainly not!!! In fact I was protecting from the usual stage divers. So why the hell did you bite my arm???!!!
    I did not deserve it. if you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen - i.e. get a bloody seat where there's no contact. I had the pleasure of showing my wife and three kids my arm with a lovely u shaped bruise this morning. Oh and if anyone is wondering it's the girl with 'Morrissey' tatooed on her forearm. She didn't even have the courtesy to apologise.

    I was really excited about last night after seeing him at Barrowlands 2 weeks ago and having a brilliant time. This was to be about my 30th time seeing him.

    It was my first time at The Borough Hall, and it had a great feel as soon as we walked in, a great venue nice and tight with the stage at a good height, and just the sort of place where Morrissey seems to thrive.

    Doll and the Kicks were entertaining again, can't believe they are unsigned as yet. Spoke to them after the show and they are lovely people as well, really chatty and to coin a northern phrase, dead canny.

    On to Moz. The man was brilliant (again), the band were brilliant (again), everything was played to perfection and Morrissey's voice was tops after his recent illness. A great start to the gig with This Charming Man, Irish Blood, Black Cloud and How Soon Is Now really getting the crowd going, loads of swaying and surging and sweat! Perfect. "This is going to be brilliant" I thought.

    However there was a real lull to the gig around Ask which I couldn't understand, which carried on virtually to First of The Gang to Die, at one point Morrissey even asked if we were missing our beds which is why they didn't play Sorry Doesn't Help Us, in my opinion. This could just have been my luck, that I could have been surrounded by people who didn't know much of the older stuff. Even The Loop and Sol's bass rockout at the end of I'm OK By Myself didn't get these people bouncing! HOW?

    Ended up behind Julia who I spoke to at the end and she was really charming and nice, you can't believe all you read.

    All in all, a great show from Morrissey and the band's point of view but I did find the crowd to be a little staid.

    Still loved it, still ove Morrissey and think the band are class at the minute. More power to their elbows I say!

  • I meant to say that we saw 'Boro legend' Bernie Slaven at last night's gig. He was sporting a Moz quiff.No sign of Gareth Southgate mind.

    Interesting as I understand Liverpool's Xabi Alonso was at the Liverpool gig...

  • Could it be related to this little story? (from th Guardian seven deadly sins of football series)

    Town goes bananas – Hartlepool, 2002

    The denizens of Hartlepool, who, it is said, once infamously hanged a monkey during the Napoleonic wars because they thought it was a Frenchman, went one better in 2002: they elected the Hartlepool United mascot as the town's mayor. H'Angus the Monkey - a nod to the town's Napolenoic shame - promised "free bananas for schoolchildren".
    Stuart Drummond, the man behind the mask, ensured the kids did indeed get fresh fruit - and was re-elected in 2005. SM

    I wasn't there by the way.... but I will be tomorrow. COME ON MOZ GIVE US A SONG
