  • First time seeing moz
    was up in the grand tier
    thought doll and the kicks were okay
    nothing that special really
    as for the main man, i felt his delivery was pretty solid
    strange to hear songs like death at ones elbow and nowhere fast.
    Overall i really enjoyed it, highlights being find out for yourself
    and cemetry gates
    think the one song encore is not good enough
    needs more of a kick, especially with a one hour, 20 mins set

  • Hopefully first night glitches but sounds like we're gonna have yet more cancellations.

    If you're going to cancel just do it instead of leaving us all on tenterhooks etc.

    The Albert Hall will be happy.

    I thought he did fine, but the setlist didn't have any major crowd-pleasers, and the atmosphere was a bit pedestrian.

    Cemetry Gates was my highlight. Shame he didn't sing the better songs of his recent years.

    It's the sixth time I've seen him since 1986, and we came away saying "with such an amazing back catalogue, why do so many weak songs?"

    Still think he's great though.

  • You will all be super impressed by the superb lighting effects created by M and his team, he must have been working overtime during the summer break.
    Am sure you will never have seen anything like this before in a Morrissey show . . . be careful though - at some points they are hypnotic! M usually is though :) . . .
    And Morrisseys film of 1970's stars, one of a blonde lady I cannot recall her name but I think she may have been a beautiful french singer/superstar whom Morrissey has been influenced by. And another singer in a superb 'Grattan Man' suit circa 1974 - singing lyrics . . .

    'You're such a good looking woman baby, it's like you came down from heaven just like an Angel baby!'

    I love you Morrissey, will all my heart. :)

    Oh, and Morrissey was unwell, despite giving such a great show, bless him he was unwell and seeing no one after the show . . . so everyone send him lots and lots of healing 'vibes'. Thank you.

    Strange to think of His Mozness in such close proximity to the Broad Street fleshfest on a Friday evening. Maybe it was only fitting he kept his shirt on. The Gateshead ginger beer was sadly missed, but nevertheless ‘twas lovely to see old blue eyes.

    Doll & The Kicks were, as always, wonderful (is it just me who blubs whenever they play If You Care) and the “Swerve for Morrissey” car sticker raised a smile, as did the boy in blue who’d peaked too early on the marching powder. Ah, bless ‘im. He was having a lovely time.

    “Good evening”

    “Of course, of course... welcome to sympathy hall” [introducing HSIN]

    (I resisted the temptation to sing “oompah oompah stick it up your jumper” during Solomon’s bass outro to I’m OK by Meself Ta Very Much)

    “Because against, against all medical advice, on Monday we release Swords. In which...a song... can be found... for those who care...” [between Poor Education and Death At One’s Elbow]

    “Thank you, thank you... Thank me!” [after DAOE]
      “the single that never was...” [introducing When Last I Spoke]

    “Everything in life [audience: “yes!”] yes! everything in life [inaudible] has a time and its place [audience: “including you darling!!”] What?! What?” (introducing One Day Goodbye)

    “the extremely funny thing is we almost didn’t make it tonight...oh dear” (introducing WDYFOFY)

    “marvellous?” (in response to shout of same from audience, before Is It Really So)

    Struggled to reach the notes on Pigsty. Perhaps he should drop it. Agree with other poster that Boz seemed to motioning to exit at end of song, in manner suggesting songs were dropped.

    (on returning for FOTGTD encore) “Well the morphine is kicking in. So there is just time for me to thank you. And to say, for God’s sake, hold on to your friends”

    Better than an evening in The Reflex

    I really have hard time listening to all the trash people are saying about the show. It infuriates me how he can never please some of you. When he is taking time off, you can't wait for the tour to start, when it starts, you bitch about everything right down to the way he looks. Are you kidding me??? If you are a fan of Moz, you take what you get, you still spend the money to go, you savour the shows you get.

    If you consider that some of these shows have been rescehuled from prior Refusal cancellations... you got some change ups, what the duece? I am betting on a setlist change for Seattle...but if not, so what? Tonight you got Cemetary Gates, Nowhere Fast, Teeneage Dad...

    He is still perfoming because people want him. He still tosses his shirt to us because we all fight over it! Yes he is 50!!! He likes to kick, stretch, and he's 50, 50, 50!!! I can't wait for the West Coast leg and I'll be happy with whatever he gives us! If he has to cancel some, he has to cancel... its just the way it goes. You can't possibly be true fans with all your complaining. Get a fuckin' life. Maybe at 50 you should retire and go piss your pants in the corner of the home.

    It's Morrissey's town...and I can't wait for Seattle to be in his town, then Portland, then Oakland, then LA and Ventura...

  • Is Morrissey well? (Score:1, Interesting)

    Last night felt like Morrisseys last, he wasn't 100% and to be honest neither were the crowd. I'm still not convinced that the 'Sympathy Hall' is an ideal venue, unless you are part of the comfy seat haribo munching brigade. The songs chosen I cannot fault but I came away feeling disappointed. I know this is a gripe without any substance but the whole night (like the weather as we left) was a bit wet. Morrissey if you are still ill (I had to get it in there somehow!) then I apologise for my selfishness I also apologise for thinking that he may even be reading this. I hope he picks up for the remainder of the tour and if he comes back to birmingham he doesn't play at the Sympathy Hall.

  • Sounds like my decision not to go paid off? I don't like the new venues that have popped up over the last few years (Bridgewater, Sage, Brum Symphony...) they are sterile and draw the life out of those who play them.

    Hope the voice situation improves? Last night was a rerun because of the last time!

  • I loved it beginning to end, if I hadn't read after the gig that he was ill, I wouldn't have noticed to be honest - I was caught up in the moment.

    Although the sound was great where I was (3 rows from the front), I agree that The Symphony Hall is not ideal for a Moz gig. Seats disrupt the atmosphere.

    Loved Nowhere Fast, Death at One's Elbow and How Soon is Now had me choking back the tears. Songs from Years of Refusal held their own against the classics. Not arsed if I never hear There is A Light done live again.

    Disappointed to read so many negative comments. I did feel at the time that the set may have been cut short and yes his voice seemed to go a little toward the end, but it didn't take away from an awesome band playing amazing songs amazingly well with the greatest front man I've seen live.

  • Did anyone, except the 2 people who were punched in the face by Security, see how bad the Security people were . No wonder there was no Atmostphere you couldn't Fart without getting beaten up.
    I felt sorry for the 2 women Dancing in the Aisle next to me , they were dragged out of the Hall and given a dressing down [ it was like being back at School ] and came back in Tears . The remainder of the show they were crying and moaning AND that's all I heard for over 45 minutes of Mozza's set.
    I was right at the front AND god did he look ill, I hate to say this , but this could well be one of his last ever gigs , he looked like he was dying up there.
    No wonder the Set was cut short .

  • there any other act on the planet that would have the temerity to proffer such a plodding, highlight-lite setlist??

    He boasts one of the most invigorating back catalogues in musical history, yet seems to make his song choices with a haphazard logic that is bordering on supreme arrogance, at a crucial point in his career where he could well be label-less and in the wilderness again.

    Maybe he just doesn't care anymore.

  • Not the best - taken with the shitty camera on the iphone.

    Some of the comments here are a tad harsh - it was pretty clear 2 or 3 songs in he wasn't 100%. Overall i thought he did ok. Certainly wasn't the best Moz gig ever but a long, long way from being the worst. People moaning about 'no classics' need to think about who they are seeing, this isnt Bon Jovi or INXS. Anyway, we had This Charming Man, How Soon Is Now and Cemetry Gates (the highlight), what are they if they are not classics anyway ? The day Moz plays a greatest hits set is the day we know its all over.

    Agree about Sym Hall. Its a great venue for classical music (which is what it was built for) or for an acoustic gig, but certainly not a pop/rock show. Security was ridiculous. I understand the need for stopping people jumping on stage (safety reasons) but to have men walking about with earpieces on acting they they were protecting Barak Obama from Bin Laden was way OTT. The guy on the right aisle at the front (looking at the stage) was a total prick.

    Here hoping he never plays there again.

    Don't get me wrong, but that song has been played at EVERY damned show I've seen for the last 7 1/2 years... *Yaaaawn* Other than that, it's not a terrible list. Could do with some Maladjusted titles or perhaps More Vauxhall...
