sorry but dont agree , he is on top . Voice as good as ever and i couldnt wait to get in and see him and all those people saying it shouldnt have taken place well bollocks to you. If you dont want to go then dont go but dont stop others who do. Radio stations wont play his stuff and the press cant wait to persecute him . You just cant have an opinion anymore . Long Live Morrissey

Not when that opinion is linked to support for a party that practice hate and have links to hate groups around europe and have holocaust deniers amongst their midst. Radio stations surely also have the right to have opinions too? The danger of going to mass gatherings at this time is that it will increase the spread of this virus which although may not affect you that much, could be passed on to others who may become seriously ill. It is irresponsible.

He said this Country had lost its identity , does that make him a racist because if it does then i must be a racist too. This country has gone down the pan and most of us know it but if you say anything your put in the racist box despite the fact that a large majority of people think the same.
Im sick and tired of the same old shit coming from the press about Morrissey , regardless of what the press says he will also be an Icon to me.

The son of Irish immigrants blaming the state of the country on immigrants. Right. We have lived in a multi cultural country for sooooooo long. It is something most people celebrate.

In response to Mozmar, it certainly felt like Morrissey was raising the stakes. I was at the MEN in 2004 where he embraced the crowd and the seated were on their feet (that was my first ever arena sized gig—I generally prefer smaller venues).

Saturday was a divisive invitation from Morrissey to take sides, with a set list that left those around me looking confused and alienated.

The brilliance of the night, perhaps, is the way it allowed Morrissey to control a narrative: us versus them. I might even say that it felt like he wanted an esoteric collusion: he seemed intimate with those near the front, but he rarely looked beyond them. I, however, have a family these days, and I have limited energy to enjoy a test of loyalty—which is what it felt like he was doing.

I genuinely felt frustrated for those sat around me. For me, audience responses beyond the few hundred at the front help gauge how I judge a gig.

In a nutshell: That venue wasn’t right for that set list. Way too big (and ‘cold’) save for its enormous capacity to allow Morrissey to make a rather large point. That felt like the priority.

I think, that will be the last time I attend an arena size Morrissey gig.

I’m looking forward to the album, and I’m absolutely loving the song Knockabout World.

Does anyone know the name of the female Latin artist on the screen that was singing before Morrissey came on? Much appreciated.
Tu Falta De Querer by Mon Laferte: I have posted the full list of pre-show videos in the Cologne thread.

Anyone know the name of the Patti Smith song that was played before the gig last night?

The setlist debates seem to come up in every thread for every show. Most performing artists who are still producing new material naturally play mainly songs from their most recent albums. Morrissey is no different and his setlists have always been dominated by songs from recent albums. 9 out of 16 songs on Beethoven was Deaf (recorded from London and Paris shows two days apart in 1992) are from Your Arsenal and there are zero Smiths songs. This tour was even advertised as being in promotion of I Am Not a Dog on a Chain. There's no deep, hidden, loyalty-testing statement here. He's just playing mainly his most recent songs, with some well-chosen picks from the back catalogue.

Whether you like the more recent songs or not is a different question and can be debated, but the choice of mainly recent songs shouldn't be a surprise. From my view at the front, at least, I saw many fans perfectly happy to hear LIHS and California Sun songs and even singing along all the words to I Am Not A Dog on a Chain songs that have only been performed once or twice before.

Artists are constantly trying new things. Could we even imagine someone with undeniable gifts of creativity like Morrissey keeping the same sound and style over the course of a 38 year-long career? There are many times I wish I had been of age in the 80's and 90's to have seen The Smiths and Morrissey perform those songs then, but I can hardly blame him for doing something new.

Good luck with the possible permanent fibrosis it has been causing and hopefully you didn't pass it onto people with health issues on the way.

The problem is the pacing and enthusiasm he puts into it. Compare his set lists and the level of perfomance latter day Bowie put into his gigs at roughly the same age.......it's chalk and cheese.

If Moz did the thing that Bowie / Depeche / PSB / etc did, his setlist would look like :

2 new songs
3 hits
1 obscure old song
1 new song
8 hits
-
1 new song / 1 obscure old song
2 hits
-

But he never will, he never will, he never will.

GAME OF DEATH.
why do people moan when M plays the same songs but if he did a dozen smiths songs every night of a tour people would be happy,just don't get it.i lived through the smiths being 23 when they split,i will take Ms output over the smiths any day of the week.

I touched almost every hand rail on the tube/train and was staying in Kensington ( a virus hotspot).
Morrissey was coughing and spluttering into the crowd all night anyway.
Seeing Morrissey was more important to me than worrying about viruses. I'm 46 and not had chance to see him live before.
Leprosy wouldn't have stopped me going through. .

Except young people who are getting it and getting respiratory issues are getting lung scarring and cases of ipf occuring in youngsters which is irreparable and they may have decreased lung capacity and life long breathing issues. Not just old people.
