  • OK. Love Morrissey. And the H-Wood Bowl show promised to be awesome. Yes, I had Ramp Box seats (gimp section) but some worker charged me $20 to get into the exclusive 7th row pit. After the third song (honestly, don't remember), I rushed the stage and was kicked out immediately. I do remember falling on my knees and prostelating to the man, the myth, the moz, and seeing him grin at me before security roughly pulled me off stage. I was threatened with arrestment (ala P. Hilton) but was let go after a half hour. I tried to get back in but security was alterted to my presence. Oh, well, hope my premature rush incited the fans and helped make this an awesome concert. I've seen him twice before and didn't mind sacrificing the show if it made for a better experience. Moz is our poet laureate!

  • Two encores. Ended with There Is A Light. Security in the pit were cunts. They added two more rows in front of the front row at the last minute. He was in a great mood. Show was being filmed by a pro company for something that seems official.

  • Had the most amazing time watching Morrissey live for the 60th time. He started with "Queen is Dead" and ended with "There's A Light That Never Goes Out". Surrounded by some old and new friends I witnessed greatness. A night that will never be forgotten.

  • This show was not as rad as his show in Fresno where I got to be just a few feet away from him, but it was better than his Wiltern show where something seemed off. The lead guitarist sounded too loud and shrill from where we were standing.

    Sexy Moz stripped off his shirt 2 or 3 times. "Life is a Pigsty" was awesome. Actually, most of the songs he played from Ringleaders were great live, even though that's not his best album.

    He dissed Echo Park, but I think he was just teasing. He called it "scrawny." I was so glad to see all of the Latinos singing along to everything, it was such a great vibe.

    Sometimes I really don't get his song choices, yikes. I think 1/3 of the songs made our whole box go "Why is he playing that?" But that's the gamble you take when you go see any band.

    The man is amazing. I think it's true, the people who say his best relationship in his life is with the audience...

  • For the first time in 15 years, and sells it out again - which I believe is 17,000. He commented early about how he had been invited back and addressed all the fans young and old saying he was truly grateful.

    First of the Gang to Die was brought back to the setlist, as well is There Is A Light That Never Goes Out. He played his regular 2 song encore, and I thought it was over. But he stepped back up to the mic and said something like "Let this be how you remember me by" and went into the classic. After the lyrics ended he walked to stageright and smiled for a bit. He motioned a question about if he should take off his shirt or not. He did and threw it to the crowd before leaving. That was his second shirt, the otherduring his normal spot in Let Me Kiss You.

    He remarked about how The Hollywood Bowl was the hippest spot in town, except for The Cat and The Fiddle. Another comment about the venue was how many legends had played there. He listed a few and the closed his thought with "" which got a huge reaction.

    When he introduced the band he made note how Boz had been there the longest. Solomon was next, and he was introduced as the newest. When he ended at Mikey, he got deemed the least important.

    There were a little over 10 stage invaders, mostly during You're Gonna Need Someone On Your Side. Among them was Australian professional skateboarder, Dustin Dollin.

    A brilliant night, a show that I think will be talked about for years.

  • Morrissey looked and sounded extremely good. I knew he had sold out the 17,500 seat venue, but figured that a good portion of those tickets were scalped and that some of the seat would be empty. But the whole place was packed with everyone from all different walks of life. It was amazing to take a look back(I was in terrace) and see everyone on their feet and belting the songs out along with Moz. Blacks, Latinos, Anglos, Asians...Why can't everyone get along outside like this outside the venue? I think Moz sang three songs for his encore. Just when we all thought it was over he totally blows everyones mind and goes into There is a Light!! I cried like a little girl. No shame here. I am sure someone will chime in with the complete setlist as I am in shock as to how great this concert was and a beautiful venue. I want to thank all the fans that attended. Everybody there was awesome and came w/o any drama, just wanting to have a great date with the man we all love. One note, the first chick that got on stage held onto Moz with both hands and feet and the security had a bitch of a time getting her off. I am just glad she didn't ruin the show for the rest of us.

  • Bought my tix for the gig 24hrs prior, popped $302.45 on two pit/pool row 7, as soon as Moz came out, my girl and I stuffed our popcorn under our seats and rushed the "exclusive" two front pit rows, dead center infront of Moz. The whole night, was AWESOME!! He was in superb form, superb, he kept chatting with the fans right infront of me, he gave the mic to the chick in front o me, twice. I had a letter, I wanted to hand to him but, he couldnt find the right time to get it. A LOT of fans kept jumping on stage right in the spot I was at. Me and the other guy nearby help several fans jump on stage. At one point some guy was real aggressive in his quest to get onstage that he shoved my gf very roughly, the security came and yanked him out, Moz looked over to my gf to see if she was ok. Pigsty was stunning, the lights and rain effects during the song totally captured the mood. Morrissey had the 17,00 plus fans eating right out of his hand. He was very talkative, and friendly with the crowd. At the end of The Boy with a thron in his side, I shouted out "Brilliant Morrissey BRILLIANT" and he looked at me real quick smiled and rolled his eyes shyly. He spoke to Julia and asked if we could understand what she said. Some one tossed on stage early in the gig, a Tshirt that read in old english lettering, MOZ KREW, he then tossed it in to the crowd and I caught it. I dont recall what song it was but, he knelt right infront of me for a few seconds, so I tossed him my letter and it landed right next to his shoe, he started to get up and he put it in his hand (YAY!!!!)he then took someone elses and put them on the drum kit stand with the rest of the stuff poeple tossed at him. He tossed out a few shirts. He did two encores. Early in the gig, he said," play the Hollywood Bowl and you can play whatever you feel like" And I think he launched into FOTGTD, which he hadnt been doing on the tour. National front disco sounded orgasmic, I could see Morrissey spray out spit (lol) as he delivered most of his lyrics with true feeling and conviction, marvlous. Hes not moving as carefree as he used to but, then again hes not 28 anymore. He looked absolutely hunky in his first, I think it was, not too sure but, Cavalli suit. There were serveral cameras all round the stage. At the end of the gig, I spoke to a cameraman, and he said theres a live dvd coming out this fall/winter, and that thats why they were recording the gig. I was great, because in between songs, while hes waiting for the band to tune up for the next tune, you see Moz, just kinda being "normal" waiting round, and as soon as he hears the first chords, he goes into "Moz" wonderfull. Boz an Co. were on point, Jesse's a stallion on stage. This definitely turned out to be a wonderful night, memorable. I loved that he started telling the crowd how many legends have played the bowl, and how he cheekily included himself! VIVA Moz!!!

    Getting an 8th to smoke at the show= $60
    Parking at the bowl= $18
    2 Pool/pit tickets= $302.45
    Feeling Morrisseys spit while he entertains 17,000+ fans= PRICELESS!!!

    ...and how?
  • the show was great. Moz was so smooth. looked dashing in his white suit to start and ending in his blood red shirt. the image of hime with the hollywood bowl spotlights going into the stars [reflecting in the resevoirs] of hollywood was beautiful. set list is pretty much the same, but 3 encores! he was really trying to do a good show - realizng it was a big event and he was being filmed. was chatty with the crowd. asked julia what was next and she replied 'i wanna see the boy happy'.. moz was very nice when he 1st came on thanking his old fans, and new ones. i didnt like kirsten young - a little annoying... i was surpised though that the intro woman talking sounded exactly as during the YATQ tour. also, even though i LOVE the songs, surprised to hear Everyday and also TIALTNGO. Awesome to hear Ive Changed My Plea, live as well as Pls pls Pls. everyone loved hearing his political comments on G Bush during I will See you in Far as well as Repulicans and Democrats in IBEH.

    The crowd was the usual, low class, Ghetto crowd. I laughed when Moz sang in Ganglord "get your fat ass back to the Ghetto. Get your scrawney ass back to the Ghetto". LOL. Seriously some major fat asses. but its not the fat asses which were bad - its the ATTITUDE that the fat assed men and women have. so goddamn obnoxious. there were some ghetto style people next to me in front and behind, screaming drunk, talking during his songs, just acting so immature and assanine. you know what i mean folks? Notice i havent used any ethnic references here - but cmon - we all knwo who the punk trouble makers are 99^ of the time at Moz shows. it makes me wonder if these people even understand anything Moz is singing about? do they have any grace, kindness, sensitivty? just hollering like it is a damn rodeo.

    i know this is NOT a kind and sensitive comment, but i was so irritated when i was trying to enjoy my show... i was hoping some would fall and trip and break a kneecap or 2 or a few people would get into a gang fight and kill each other. in fact, it would be great to have half the punks dissapear permanently. i would rather have the entire place filled with gays than ghetto style assholes. please die in a car accident tonite.

    the sad thing is there are a lot of other people who will get stereotyped becasue of the stupidities of some of these people..

    anyways i divert. Moz was wonderful!

  • This was my 4th Morrissey show (the last time I saw him was sometime around 2000). This was [i]easily[/i] the best of the four.

    The show was exceptionally long for a Moz show (2 hours+). He played a great range of songs and the crowd was fantastic.

    Only negatives about the show were (a) the opening act was god-awful and (b) the security guards looked to be a bunch of ex-gang-bangers who were hoping to rough a few people up.

  • I found the whole show a bit too cabaret. And while the band was in top form technically (especiall the drummer; the best he's ever had), I found them to be a bit soul-less. I can't help feeling that they are a pack of touring session musicians.
    I know, his voice was great... yada yada.
    And his setlist could have been improved... yada yada.
    That's the way I felt. Cabaret and hired backup band.

    I'm really hoping this show will be out on DVD. Really *the* best out of maybe 10 shows I've been the last 18 years since the very first I went to, which blew my mind away. It was like the first time...

    The crowd gave back so much (and his majesty returned) and toward the end of the show/encores, Morrissey was very openly touched.

    Welcome home, Moz.

  • I was in the pool section, and there were these totally ANNOYING guys who kept jumping the second barrier trying to get on stage. At least two of them made it on stage already, but they were trying to get on AGAIN! Why can't they just calm down and enjoy the show? Security had to keep coming over and dragging them out of the front of the pit OVER and OVER again. They should've been kicked out. It was really distracting. Then these other idiots were so busy taking pictures with and talking on their cell phones the whole time. I mean, can't you wait until the show is OVER to call all of your friends and tell them about the show?

    I don't care if people go crazy and jump around and sing or even try to get on stage, but those people talking on cell phones in their LOUDEST voice and those guys trying to to get on stage and throw signs at their friends are just so annoying and low class.

  • I've seen Moz live before, I even made the now legendary "Live in Dallas" show, but I have to say the musicianship far surpassed any show I have ever seen of his. The band was in top form, the light show was brilliant and Moz's vocals were great. I do have one question...has security at Morrissey's shows increased to deter fans from rushing the stage, or are people less inclined( or older ) and do not want to risk being roughed up? It is nice to be able to enjoy Morrissey in all of his brilliance rather than the show being unexpectedly cut short, due to a mass of people wrecking the stage. I also noticed Moz is definitely more interactive with the audience than I ever remember. It seems he has been humbled by the longevity of his career and is truly greatful that he can pull off venues like the Hollywood Bowl. It seemed he really enjoyed performing for the crowd last night and you have to believe playing at the Hollywood Bowl was a highlight for Moz himself. I overheard some girl behind me after the concert complaining, "he didn't sing Death of a Disco Dancer, he didn't sing Last night i dreamt..." I wanted to turn around and tell her to shut the F up. I guess she thought she was at the Smiths reunion tour?! Moz never played a Smiths song on tour for the longest! I was just happy to hear the Smiths songs he did play. You give some people an inch...

  • sitting there with my mom, who got me the tickets for my 18th birthday present. the show wasn't starting - there was just some pre-recorded voice speaking insults on the the PA system. I heard 'aids starter', that was the last straw, i got up on my two legs and screamed "MOZ!", took a breath, "MOZ!", took another breath, "MOZ!". I could hear the other people on the top deck beginning to cheer, whistle and clap. Usually i'm shy to speak my mind, but asking for Moz was impeccable logic so I didn't let up. "MOZ! MOZ!" I was beginning to feel desperate, i could hear it in my own voice, but the crowd continued support. Then it happened - for 34,000 eyes to see, the lights brightened and the man in white came on stage!

    The ball was rolling for an amazing show, he opened up with the queen is dead. Not until he sang it did I understand the statement he was making. My interpretation was that the queen is dead, and we've been free to do what we like this entire time.

    I remember him saying "It'll only get more dangerous from here on out", at the time I felt he was saying it to me for shouting his name over the insults he provided.

    He was true to the words he has written years ago. On let me kiss you, he spoke of someone you physically admire - and in his boldness, he ripped off his button up shirt and the crowd went wild. He smashed the ice with his sheer openness.

    I had been standing since i stood up, everyone else was sitting, and then Girlfriend in a Coma came on. People around me began to stand up and dance around to the music! Surely we were at a music concert, why not dance? It was quite an experience.

    After a track or two, I decided to decend to the base of the mountain, to get a better vantage point. I ran down the steps, each one bringing me closer to the stage. I reached the top of the terrace boxes, from which i watched a song or two. Then I went to the far left, and found a path down the hill. I spotted a cameraman filming around the corner of the terrace boxes. I continued down the hill, and saw that there was only a white rail and a shrub separating me from the terrace seats. so I hopped the rail, and jollied down to the row between the terrace and garden boxes. This is where Moz began singing "Thats how people grow up", the lyrics I felt like booing because dreams don't need to die. And then as the song dragged out, Moz went on his back, legs above head, back on the drum platform, and played dead.

    He brought himself to his feet again and played Life is a Pigsty. Again, after singing pessimism, he fell to the floor as the music dragged on. He must've been there for 20 seconds, it was getting ridiculous, I shouted "This charming man!" with the passion of a tourette's patient, and with perfect timing, he sprang up and the epic guitar riffs of "How soon is Now" began wailing throughout the Bowl. The crowd roared, though soon enough, the song was over. The band took off their instruments and walked off stage.

    "Encore!" and "MORR-IS-SEY" were repeated throughout the venue, and the band returned for an encore in under 30 seconds!

    And then it happened - The most beautiful Moz/smiths track began to play, Please Please Please, Let me Get what I want. This is a song I would put on repeat on long car rides, on the record it has the most beautiful stringed instrument solo, which was substituted by a horn player. It was the same song that touched me through the headphones of an ipod on a drive back from vegas two years ago. Seeing the animation on Morrissey's face on the large screen as he sang words older than me was unforgettable and true.
    It was really a stunning moment.

    After hearing that, I couldn't care what the next song was, in fact i can't remember it. But the final song was a fantastic smith's tune - There is a light that never goes out. I take the lyrics as a resolution to fate turning any single way and taking us in the middle of our journey. "If a double decker bus, crashes into us" "I'll die by your side, such a heavenly way to die". The verses to thi

  • This is a longshot, but can anyone ID the artist and song title from the first video clip during intermission? From an old French musical I believe. I've become obsessed with getting a copy of this song! Great, quirky video montage, undoubtedly from Moz's personal collection.

    Great show. I shall never see Moz again for what can possibly top seeing him at my favorite venue? :-)

  • Saw these 2 actors at the show. In Garden boxes just a few in front of me. It blew me away that they are Morrissey fans, but made me extatic! Michael Rosenbaum Got up on a chair and was waving his arms around singing Please Please was awesome!

  • The Bowl is just a rotten place to see a show, Almost everyone has a rotten seat. Even the $150 Garden Boxes required binoculars.

    This was just to stroke his own ego. He should have done 5 nights at the Roxy and give his LA fans a treat instead of freezing them cold,overpriced and unconformable Hollywood Bowl

  • The anticipation for Morrisseys arrival is heightened by the fact she is so mediocre !

    Don`t you think Moz knows this ;-)

  • I am lucky (& I suppose old) enough to say I saw the Smiths in 1985 @ the Tower Theater in Philadelphia. At the end of the show practically the entire crowd rushed the stage for the encore (GOD I wish I could remember what it was). Those were the days ...

    Although much more calm and a lot less intimate, this show was still among the best I've ever seen. Yes, the tix were pricey (I'm not even going to admit what I paid for front row garden box) but to me it was well worth it. The Bowl is a magical place and Moz is a well-deserved performer to grace its stage. He sounded absolutely incredible, the band is as close to perfection as it gets, and shirt or no shirt - you can all continue to debate that one but the truth is, the man's still got it!

    So looking forward to the dvd! The camera was on my friend & I for a bit so who knows ... hopefully we'll make the cut.

    I posted some pics on my myspace - please check 'em out!

    Looking forward to Bakersfield tomorrow night!

    It was dark as I drove the point home.
  • This has to be one of the best Morrissey concerts in a long time. I was at the bowl 15 years ago and he out did himself. The enery of the crowd was optimal and charged with genuine appreciation. Yes, me and my brothers sang with Morrissey on a few old songs, to the annoyance of bad attitude people around us. It was a cultural thing for us to sing along. Most will never understand. As far as those bad bad people who rush the stage. It's a tradition and sign of affection for our hero. Stuffy people really are only upset at their own angst.

    Anyhow, its was fabulous. Hope to get on the dvd with our Morrissey chant during the interviews.

  • Living on a beggarly student's budget, I had nosebleed seats in the back, and I have to say the sound was just abominable from where I sat.

    It truly sounded as if someone was playing the Smiths on an old "boom box" when he opened with The Queen is Dead.

    Did anyone else in the poor seats find the sound simiarly bad?

    I got used to it as the concert went on, but it made the whole concert less enjoyable than it could have been..

  • During the pre-show prerecorded voice (thick Irish female voice, was it Sinead O'Conner?)there were certain obviously inflammatory words and phrases being spoken, one of which was "AIDS Inventor". Can anyone else confirm what I heard? And also, does anyone have a written format of that entire sequence of words and to cite the source of where it came from? I am fascinated and would like to know more.

  • Here is the URL to the track played before the concert which I thought was grand: viewAlbum?id=28511902&s=143441

    Check the thread under "AIDS Inventor" for the story behind it.
