  • Amazing night (Score:5, Insightful)

    As shown by the setlist already posted All You Need Is Me replaced I Keep Mine Hidden and Best Friend On The Payroll replaced One Day Goodbye Will Be Farewell.

    Morrissey said almost nothing during the show. He just said "Tack" (thanks in swedish) "thank you", thank you friends" and near the end, after I'm OK by mýself I think, "thank you for a great night". But he said nothing more which was surprising. He seemed to be really enjoying himeslf though as the crowd was really, really good. We sang along to all the songs and sometimes Morrissey's voice was almost drowned by the singing from the crowd. Gothenburg really do love Morrissey. Hopefully he'll return to Sweden later this summer as he did three years ago. And the show was amazing, absolutely fantastic. I thought the show in Oslo was great, this was even better. And here we don't throw beers at him.

      And I forgot. Two shirts thrown to the crowd. The first one, as usual, during Let Me Kiss You and the second one after First Of The Gang To Die.

      Tack, Emil Bigsten!

      Gothenburg is a place that seems to like its music alright; this from wiki -

      "Gothenburg has a rich music life - the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra is the best known when it comes to classical music. Gothenburg also was the birthplace of the Swedish composer Kurt Atterberg. Bands like The Soundtrack of Our Lives and Ace of Base are well known pop representatives of the city. There is also an active indie scene. For example, the musician Jens Lekman was born in the suburb of Angered and named his 2007 release Night Falls Over Kortedala after another suburb (Kortedala). Other internationally claimed indie artists are the electro pop duo Studio (band), dance group The Tough Alliance, songwriter José González and pop singer El Perro Del Mar.

      The city is also noted for being the centre of the heavy metal subgenre melodic death metal (sometimes even called "The Gothenburg sound"). Gothenburg metal is distinct to the traditional death metal because of its mixture of melody, harmony and extensive guitar solos. Often, keyboards and clean singing are incorporated (instead of using the traditional death metal growl vocal style). Gothenburg's own commercially successful At the Gates, In Flames and Dark Tranquillity are credited with pioneering this melodic style, although first made by Michael Amott of Arch Enemy, Spiritual Beggars, ex-Carcass and ex-Carnage. Another well known band in the Gothenburg scene is Soilwork, although they hail from Helsingborg. Progressive power metal band Evergrey also hails from this city.

      Gothenburg is also known for being the last location Metallica played with Cliff Burton, who died that night from a bus accident along the way to their next concert..."

  • Probably the best Scandinavian gig so far, amazing crowd. They crowd sang loudly to almost every entire song, sometimes even louder than Morrissey. Moz was clearly in very good spirit and gave a very tight and intense performance. As previous posters has written, he was unusually quiet, there was no real stage banter at all. It was strange but he didn’t look disturbed or like he was going thru the motions. Also, he barely shock any hand from stage, the only time during the gig I can remember him doing that was during “Life Is A Pigsty” during the line “and once again I turn to you / to you / to you”. Only three Plopp bars was thrown on stage during “This Charming Man”, later a letter was thrown on stage.
      He was dressed in a dark blue suit with gold-like buttons and a Dolce Gabana shirt, later changed into a black shirt (that was thrown into the crowd during “Let Me Kiss You”) and after that another shirt.

    Two failed stage invaders, one during ”Why Don’t You Find Out For Yourself” and the other during “The Loop”. After “The Loop” the guards up front got reinforcements. Not even an attempt during the encore. Four people fainted or had to be pulled over by security, one during “How Soon Is Now?”, one during “Irish Blood, English Heart”, one during “Let Me Kiss You” right before the shirt was thrown and the forth one I don’t remember.

    “Life Is A Pigsty” was done with a different outro from the Borås gig. In Borås Boz did a beautiful psychedelic outro with his clarinet but here it was the old classical piano-outro. In “Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others” in the second verse he sang “something pointing out to you / something I didn’t knew” as a change. In “How Can Anybody Possibly Know How I Feel” he put more emphasis than usual on the added “officer” while making something that looked as a scout-salutation. “Best Friend On The Payroll” was done with a shortened guitar solo. Last, the jam at the end of “First Of The Gang To Die” was longer and heavier than usual, I loved it.

    He had some voice problems during “Why Don’t You Find Out For Yourself” (during the second verse, just like in Borås) and in “When Last I Spoke To Carol” (also just like in Borås). Rumour in the queue was that “You Just Haven’t Earned It Yet Baby” was sound checked but I didn’t hear it myself so I can’t confirm if it true or simply just another rumour.

    As for me, I’m OK. Got one of Jesse’s guitar picks and shock Boz’s hand. Did not buy a signed vinyl so I don’t got any info about how many were sold. My only complaint is the sound quality, when Dolls & The Kicks played it was terrible but got a lot better when Moz got on stage. Could have been better though.

    As always, please excuse my poor writing. Love to you all and see you in Stockholm (where we’ll tear Hovet apart!). // Chartres

  • This was Morrissey´s second performance in Lisebergshallen. He also played here in 1997. Billy Budd was the only song to be performed both times.

    Yesterdays show was great. However, as previous posters have pointed out Morrissey did not say much. As a matter of fact, he said nothing between the first six or seven songs. When he finally spoke he said "if there is something we could do to please you... we wont do it!"

    I think it was great that "best friend on the payroll" was back. But I have to say that I am starting to get tired of "crashing bores" and "how could anybody possibly..." In my opinion these are some of the worst Morrissey songs. And they have been played live for so long now...

    Personal favorites for me was "some girls are..." (with the usual lyric change: "On the shop floor, there's a calendar...), "Carol" and "Why don't you find out for yourself".

  • I can only agree with you all! (Most of you.)

    What a night!
    Two almost "proper" handshakes and piece of the shirt he threw out during the encore.
    lovely company outside the venue and in the pit as well.

    Now that's what I call a lot more than quite good and one hell of a way to start ones vaccation. //Puppet on a string
