  • What time did he come on at? For tomorrow's sake, so I'll be out of the bar. I know it'll be a bit earlier than Killarney.

  • Tony Visconti (Score:2, Informative)

    Tony Visconti was there standing on the right hand side of the pit. He was taking photographs of the stage, but also a lot off photos of the crowd. He like quite bemused a the scene which foloowed after Moz threw his shirt in. what a great gig though. I was stood about two people back from the second barrier just before the pit. Close enough to the stage , and a perfect view. I had loads of room and there seemed to be none of the usual pushing and shoiving nad people digging there knees and elbows into your back. Anyway, I'm still on a high after the gig. lost my head completley for Trouble Loves Me. highlight of the night for me. I'm loving the new stuff too. I Just Want To See the Boy Happy sounds so much better live than on the album. Irish Blood is still a cracker. I had som much room to move and jump a bit and dance a bit. it's great, because I'm more used to being clung to the barrier, guarding my prime spot for dear life. Do you know what I love about Ireland though. Start queuing about 5 for a moz gig and you'll get a great spot. Do the same in the UK and you'll end up about ten rows back. I'll be there earlier tomorrow, to try and get one of those wristbands. So great. Get yout place in the first three rows and be abke to wander off up and down to the bar or the jacks without losing your spot. How civilised. I don't reckon there's any chnace of getting on stge though. The bouncers looked rough. Not much has changed since 99 where I was unceromoniously dumped out the side door for trying to get into the pit without a wristband. anyway, see youu all tomorrow night again. Its going to be a blinder.

  • Alive Alive oh! (Score:2, Informative)

    The Olympia, a salubrious old music hall, filled up fast. Kristin Young gave it welly in the style of Kate Bush/Bjork/PJ Harvey/The White Stripes/Siouxsie & the Banshees. Her stage actions are like Karen O in ways, though her frilly straight girl dress all her own. Morrissey thanked her later.

    Morrissey’s set-list was the same. He seemed fit and in charge, and less sniffly. He said thanks for having him "back in your lap". There were sound problems but by picking them up straightaway and informing the audience while adjustments were made, allowances were easily made for it. The band’s slick performance was not fully justified by the poor electronics, though totally filling up the space, probably leading Morrissey to ask if people would prefer the Point as a venue. He blessed himself after a rowdy audience response. There was no mention of Marley Park in August. He asked if people liked the Rolling Stones?

    Before Trouble Loves Me, a few bars of ‘Molly Malone’ wafted out, and he did a twirl. He said hi to Julia. He pointed here and there in the audience when singing ‘there is no such thing as normal’. Before HSIN, he referred to the era of the British soap Brookside, and, before the line “when you say it’s gonna happen now”, he added “Jesus”. As in Killarney there was one shirt throw. One of my companions commented on how skilled Jesse was as guitarist. An English guest of mine, former colleague with some ‘spring-heeled Jim’ traits who liked punk but not The Smiths before, was converted by Morrissey’s live charisma.

    Some people would raise an eyebrow on celebrating a birthday with a matinee Beckett play (Endgame) and Morrissey (nice meal at Trocedaro restaurant before with friends, and drink there after) but I say beat that! Broad smiles, swaying and singing along all round made for a simply happy evening of highs. After Boz threw some set-lists to the crowd at the end, he bowed then signed with his hand to go for drinks! Much to celebrate indeed!

  • Dublin 15th Gig (Score:2, Informative)

    Urrgh! I should be in my bed but I want to get my thoughts down on tonight’s gig while they are still fresh.

    Headline: Great gig, great venue, disappointing sound

    I hate to criticise especially after I had such a wonderful night but even Morrissey agreed that the sound was not up to scratch. I wonder what other people think? While I was trying to retrieve my plastic bag (which was stranded at the door) I asked a few people what they thought of the sound and they all agreed, it was not great.

    If you can bear with me, I am no journalist, I will give you a run down of the/my day

    I didn’t even have a ticket for this gig but thanks to one of the nicest people I have met in a long long time, “L” from Glasgow I managed to buy one at face value, which was just as well as the touts were demanding anything up to €150 for them.
    We queued from about 15:30 onwards. There were a few queue jumpers but they thought better of it when we gave them the “Vulcan Stare”. Met Jane from Belfast. Jane, I know I promised to drive you to Drumcondra after the gig but I lost sight of you once the doors opened. I spent a half hour after the gig looking for you but could not find you. I’m sorry, I hope you made it back to your car OK and I hope your dogs and cats did not tear the place apart in your absence.

    The support act was Christine Young. She gave out her website address for her record “which is not available in the shops” I must have misheard what she said for when I typed in what I thought I heard it brought me to the site of a young Canadian lady with an alternative lifestyle. How to describe Christine Young’s music? I think if the Verve’s “Cat in a bag, waiting to drown” was given a microphone it would sound like Christine Young. I am sorry Christine if you are reading this, I was the guy right in front to your left with his fingers in his ears. Yes I was right in front of the speakers which was silly but your high pitched banshee wail went though my head like the power tools in the recent “Hostel” movie. Christine Young is Kate Bush’s keyboard playing evil twin sister. I actually enjoyed one or two of the songs, they were interesting “Kill the father”, “Its just imagine John Lennon” but you scared me very very much! Please next time can you bring your whole band and not just the drummer? Though you play keyboards very well I did not appreciate the backing tracks. Come back James Maker, all is forgiven. A big hello to the French chap from Dunkirk who was standing to my right and had sensibly brought ear plugs for Christine’s performance We were on the point of another “Miracle” evacuation of Dunkirk when Christine made her excuses and left.

    Roadies never Rock Stars
    I like watching Morrissey roadies, they don’t just test the instruments to see if they are working, they actually play something on them. What that something actually is I cannot tell but I do know they are trying. I can see that look of concentration which says: “Yeah, I new Morrissey in school, I could have been a rock star me, I write the poetry”

    The Morrissey tape which kept us entertained before he came on had a mix of Eurovision favourites, Ramones and just before he came on a rocky version of “You’ll never walk alone” On comes Morrissey, splendid in his black suit and white shirt. The band had matching shirts and sensible black slacks. Their mothers would have been proud of them
    I won’t go into every song, they have been discussed here before, but I realised early on that there was something wrong with the sound. At first I thought it was my ears, ruined beyond repair after Christine or maybe the fact that I was so close to that speaker my pants were moving (I was excited but not that excited) I moved to centre stage but it was still the same. It sounded like a cheap tape recorder in a language lab that has been turned up too loud. Yes it will go that loud but it sounds distorted.
    Morrissey asked: “Too Loud?” “Too Soft?” “Too bad!” Later I saw him turn to one of the band and putting his fingers in his ears say: “I

  • A good gig but by no means Morrissey best irish gig.

    Kirsten Young was a great support,kate Bush meets Mary margaret Ohara. She wa son at 8 well worth a look tomorrow.

    The gig lacked the usual dublin atmosphere, probably because about 70% of the crowd were English.

    Moz complained a lot about the sound but it was ok the usual Olympia sound. If he wants a better sound in Dublin - play at vicar st far better.

    How soon is now, Irish blood,pigsty were the highlights.

    The setlist lacked a few punches with Everyday like sunday,There is a light badly missed. Departing on a shortened version of last night is not ideal.

    Reader meets Author, born and my life is a succesion are average at best and should be axed for later on in the Tour at Marlay park.

    A good gig but not great, his last 5/6 visits to Dublin were far better.

  • I miss some old cheerful pieces in the setlist to make the audience more enthousiastic and cheerful responding,like "suedehead", "panic" or "the boy with the thorn in his side".

  • I think some more old cheerful songs in the setlist, like "suedehead", "panic" an "the boy with the thorn in his side" would make the audience still more enthousiastic and cheerfully responding and make the performance a still more perfect knock-out.

  • Killarney was worth the 4 hour drive. There were a lot of English fans that could not get tickets for the English gigs. Ticket Tout Bsatards. They all seemed to enjoy the gig. The sound was excellent and I got a handshake from his wonderfullness at the end. Later I met and spoke to Garry and Boz.

    At The olympia I was lucky enough to get a Wrist band and Was up the fronth on the barrier. I got some great photos. I was in great company Gavin Murphy ( Lead Guitarist with These Charming Men)was with me. We had a wonderful night dispite a few hitches with the sound. Morrissey was in playful mood and at ease with the crowd. No stage invasion. A few attempts no way past these Security men. They were friendly too.

    Gavin and I met and spoke to Jesse Tobais. He is a charming person as was Boz and Garry.

    Cant wait for tonight his last gig until August on our green shores...

    Hope to see all at the Oak bar after for Morrissey/Smiths Night. DJ Mc Cann from Sack the Band at the Healm

  • Moz is the master craftsman, step aside all pretenders to his crown.

    He is like a fine wine, he is maturing with time and is getting better each year.

    Take a bow Moz , Ringleaders Of The Tormentors is your magnus opus.

    I was at last nights gig in the Olympia, and now to get ready for tonights second night at the Olympia.

    Thank you Moz for your music being the soundtrack to my life.

    I thank you with all of my heart.

  • If Anyone reads this before going to Sunday nights show, the sound is much better if you stand nearer the back and underneath the balcony. Your view of the stage is still good as the floor is on an incline. All you have to do is choose which is more important - sound quality or being close to Morrissey. Either way you are going to have a great night. I personally think this was one of the best shows I've seen him do. (The best was Bradford, 1995).

  • The way this setlist has been, it's as if Morrissey did not have a solo career after the Smiths broke up until You are the Quarry came out. Its an insult to 16 years of his career! This setlist is getting ridiculous...there are never any changes and his one cover could definitely be better or replaced by any number of Morrissey songs that all of us fans have been dying to here for ages(Pick one!). Play it safe Moz but at least toss us a bone or erm a celery stalk for God's sake!
