  • Just got home. Great show. Moz was at the top of his game.He announced that he will be performing live on David Letterman on June 25th. He also played his version of "Stand by your man". All in all... it was a very enjoyable set.

  • The venue was not sold out. I would say there was about 1200 to 1500 in attendance.

    The lads came out and they all yelled things like "Lights, camera, action!" into the mic one at a time.

    1. First of the Gang to Die - There was a lyric change to "and he stole from the rich which is you, and the poor which me, and the very poor.
    2. The Last of the Famous International Playboys
    3. You Have Killed Me
    4. In the Future When All's Well
    5. Dissapointed
    6. Let Me Kiss You - He threw a shirt into the crowd. My friend Mike caught the entire shirt. Only a few buttons were missing from when Mozz ripped it off.
    7. That's How People Grow Up - Beforehand he announced again(like last night) that he will perform on the David Letterman show on June 25th.
    8. National Front Disco - I got a full on handshake during the song.
    9. Ganglord
    10. Girlfriend In A Coma
    11. Everyday Is Like Sunday
    12. The Boy With the Thorn In His Side - I told myself at the beginning of the show that I was going to get on stage during this song. He started it, and I went for it. I got on the side of the stage and just went for it. I hurdled over the lights and sprinted towards him. I gave him a huge hug and a kiss on the cheek. I had him in my grip for a good 2 or 3 seconds before Arturo pulled me off. The other security guard gripped me back of the neck very hard and forced me to run off the stage. I was led to a short back hallway where I was handed off to the venue security. They led me back into the venue and were pretty lax. Another guard came up to me and demanded to see my ticket. It was a pit ticket. He said that they normaly kick people out, but he would let me stay but not let me back in the pit. He was blunt but not rude. Many people high fived me. The owner of Rockit Records came up to me and took a pic of me for their website.
    13. Irish Blood, English Heart - Before this song, he said "I am your humble, humble servant." He changed "the English are sick to death of labor" to "Americans are sick to death of Republicans and Democrats."
    14. All You Need Is Me - Before he said "From the blind(I think it was blind) to the ridiculous, all you need is me.
    15. You're Gonna Need Someone On Your Side - A little boy was let on stage. Morrissey knelt down and posed for a picture with him. He then took his hand and led him back to the crowd. There was a second shirt thrown.
    16. I Just Want to See the Boy Happy - Beforehand he commented "Julia there's a lot of children in the crowd...and they're all mine." During this song a girl in a sirt invaded the stage and jumped on to Morrissey and wrapped her arms and legs around him.
    17. Lucky Lisp
    18. Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want - In the song he says "Lord knows it will be the first time" and then repeats it. Instead of repeating it he said "Tonight" six times.
    19. I've Changed My Plea To Guilty
    Mikey's solo piano into into
    20. How Soon Is Now? - There was one stage invader, but he got caught by security pretty much as soon as he got up. He put up a fight and was able to get a handshake.

    21. The Queen Is Dead - He came out before the song and said "Very astute, very astute." There was another stage invader who met a similar fate as the previous one. A little girl was brought up on stage. She was up on the stage earlier in the set too, but I forgot which song.

    There were some other things I remember, but can't place where in the set they were. I blurred together all my thoughts from before I hugged and kissed Morrissey because I was in awe.

    Wen he introduced the band he said "Here are the boyfriends in a coma." When he got to Jesse and Mikey he mentioned that they were standing on their x's.

    He stopped in between songs and said "I have to ask you a question. This is the last show on the first leg of the tour. Will you be attending more? He passed the mic into the crowd to a gentleman who answered "a little bit, yeah." Mozz got the mic back where he then turned to Julia

  • This was only my fourth show of the tour (I attended the there Pasadena gigs), but I can confidently say this was the loosest and best I’ve seen Morrissey in years. I think a lot of that to do with a “This is Bakersfield, a minor market, and there’s no press so let’s let it all hang out” attitude. Plus, it was the last show of this leg of the tour—even Boz was dicking around with security during the songs.

    The venue was small, but wide—sort of like a high school auditorium. As a matter of fact, my cousin-in-law who lives in Bakersfield told me the local high schools hold their graduation ceremonies in the hall. About two-thirds of the seats were full and about 75 percent of those were Morrissey fans. The other 25 percent were local yokels from Bakersfield who came to see the traveling freak show. I was front row orchestra, right center, immediately behind the one-foot concrete slab that separated us from the sunken pit.

    As the band took the stage, they each took a turn at the microphone before they retreated to their instruments. Each one, starting off with one of the Walker brothers shouting, “Lights,” then Jessie shouted “Camera,” Matt yelled “Action,” and so on repeating the words until Boz shouted “Action,” (I believe). They were all wearing the same outfits they wore at one of the nights at the Pasadena show: The white Triumph motorcycle riding school t-shirts with white trousers. Morrissey came on with a black suit, black pants and I believe a black shirt. They started off with “First of the Gang,” “Last of the Famous Int. Playboys,” and from what I remember, pretty close to the same set list as Vegas.

    The two new songs, “That’s How People Grow Up” and “All You Need Is Me” are amazing rockers, and I’m the biggest pessimist there is. With the right producer, these songs and the rest of the new LP could be like “Your Arsenal.”

    The crowd was enthusiastic, but incredibly crude—I couldn’t figure out if it was because they were from the Bakersfield area (which is a pretty downtrodden town which breeds mouth breathers) or if it was just dumb kids acting dumb. Examples: throwing junk at Morrissey, pushing and shoving girls half their size, etc. Also, I encountered a fact Mexican girl in the orchestra section as well—I wonder if this is the same one that others have mentioned from previous gigs.

    There were also two memorable stage invaders: the first one was by a rather large, milk-fed local who ran stage right, gave Moz a quick hug from the back and ran off during “The Boy with the Thorn.” He would have gotten away unscathed, but he got cute, raised his arms in the air and played to the crowd. Just then, Moz’s big Hispanic bodyguard pummeled him in a half-nelson and into the wings. The other was a petite girl, dressed sorta like a French whore with a lacey black tutu and black spiked heels. She came stage left, locked her arms and legs around Morrissey and clamped on. By the time she was pried off, even Moz was wincing and pushing her away.

    Another odd thing was that he brought up two children on stage with him at two different times: One girl about 10 years old, and later in the show, a boy, about 4. I counted close to 10 or so kids under 10 years old, including my five-year-old daughter.

    He was somewhat chatty. Mentioned the Letterman appearance, mentioned something about how we all ended up in Bakersfield, introduced “Whatever Happens, I Love You” as “Stand by Your Man” and chatted a lot with the crowd (and yes, Julia was in the front row (how in the fuck does she get that seat every fucking time).

    Long story short (I know, too late), this was one of the best shows I’ve been in ages—for some reason, much more fun than the Pasadena shows. The band seemed to be having a better time, Morrissey was in very good spirits and all over the stage, and the venue and its sounds was crisp and crystal clear.

    Side note, does anyone know what that handkerchief said? The one that he pulled out from the crowd and tucked into the front of his pants?

    PS: Kristeen Young was insufferable.

    I'm almost sure you can do better than that.
  • Just as it was in Riverside, I have a vastly improved opinion of Bakersfield thanks to His Mozness gracing it with his splendid presence!

    I was the one who handed him the blue "hankie". It wasn't exactly a hankie, though Moz wiped his face with it. It was a tea towel that I made. It had the ROTT "M" logo with an equals sign, then "GOOD LOOKING MAN ABOUT TOWN." I hope someone took a good photo of Moz wearing it tucked into his trousers.

    When Moz asked, "And when I say ghetto, I mean...?" and handed the mic to me, I was somewhat dumbfounded. I should've said something smartass like "Weed Patch" or "Fresno." I was actually gonna say, "West Hollywood." But I just said I didn't know and would he please tell us. Then I babbled my thanks about his touring and my question about when he would release his new single -- which I lurve!!!

    It's hard to say which was better -- Hollywood Bowl or Bakersfield. Both were extremely exciting, and I had excellent seats for both. At one, I got to go to the vip afterparty and talk to th'Lads, including Alain Whyte. Saw Moz there, too, but I didn't want to bother him. There were too many unpleasant people pushing to get at him there. At the other, I was closer to the stage and well, you know!

    If only Moz had been at Buck Owen's Crystal Palace, then I could definitely say!

  • Sorry (Score:1, Informative)

    I was all the way at the front of the stage right in the middle and I feel that I gotta apologize to everyone there for saying "Ann Coulter For President" when Moz handed me the Microphone... it was completely inappropiate.
    Sorry, if I offended anyone(including Mozzy) I just wanted to say something unconventional and completely random.....He didn't look like he appreciated it....ooooops!

    Also thank you Ricky for selling me that PIT ticket.... I got to caress Moz face & hair and feel his spit on my face a couple times...You rock!

    The full-figured girl next to me with a nice digital camera better post some of those great pictures she took.....please.

    The little Boy who went up on stage with Moz was so cute.... I hope some has a shot of Moz with the kid. It was an absolutely adorable moment.

  • was at the show last night and it was ok. i know kristeen has been getting a lot of harsh words but after seeing her 6th time she has grown on me. she is really not that bad. she does remind me of tori amos. Moz was in a great mood talking a lot and i though maybe glad he is done with the first leg of the tour. I thought the kids were really cute that went on stage with him. and his comment to Julia about there being a lot of kids in the crowd and they were all his.

    the only thing that i was lmao about was the outfits the band was in. i was waiting for them to breakout with "wake me up before you go-go" and i was wondering if Moz was going to rip open his shirt and be wearing and white CHOICE shirt underneath :)

  • To the fat girl who insisted on standing on top of the break between the pit and the orchestra level. Go on a diet next time before you decide to block everybodys view. The security flashed lights in your face hundred times, but you still insisted on being a rude selfish being and blocking the view by standing up on the step (even though you could see perfectly because you were in front). People like you are vile. Be considerate please. P.S. you were NOT SEXY, fatty.
