  • I can't believe I'm first to post but tonights show was awesome! Moz was in great spirits, talking a lot, passing the mic, joking, etc. and the band was tight per usual.
    some highlights:
    -opened with 'Panic'
    -National Front Disco, one of my fav Moz songs, was most certainly the higlhight of the show. the energy was astounding and the entire building was shaking/singing along. I never thought that song could be that furious
    -Moz(paraphrased): "We'd like to try our own version of Sweet Home Alabama"...right before Girlfriend in a Coma!
    -During IBEH, Moz left the "democrats" out of "Americans are sick to death of repulicans and democrats"...the resulting emphasis on the GOP was well recieved and relevant
    -Ended with Playboys.

    Although there were some holes in the setlist, overall the night was incredible and an amazing show for my first Morrissey concert! Even though the balcony was mostly sitting down (inconceivable!), I was dancing the entire time.

    On to Atlanta! Moz, give me back The Queen is Dead!

  • I have to say that I really enjoyed the films showed during set up. Esp. the New York Dolls stuff. Classic and classy.

  • or does Irish Blood, English Heart not loose a little of its impact outside England? Thts why im glad to hear its been updated lyrically...although saying that Moz is huge in Mexico and plenty of other countries that wouldn't "get" the cobbled streets of England thing....I actually reckon he should drop the tune altogether...its not one of my favourites....if its Quarry material you want where is "Im Not Sorry"?

  • This was my second show (Knoxville last week), and I have to say Birmingham rocked. The theatre was so beautiful and Moz's vibe with the crowd was great. I traded/upgraded my ticket with a guy out front from the Mezz in the back to 12 row orchestra center and the view was awesome. I was probably singing a little too loudly for those around me, so I apologize for that! "Panic" was definitely cool...I didn't think about the B'ham reference and that he might throw that one in for us!

  • My 2nd Mugsy show. First was Atl in '97 Ithink?
      I honestly believe he was MUCH better this time around. Sounded Sooooo so so so o so good.
      How come nobody takes the glads to the shows anymore? I always thought it was sort of a tradition. And the morrissey football chant?
      1 girl made it on stage. I think she was the only one to try? No, another guy tried after that, but not quite. Good Ole Mogsy took off and threw 3 shirts into the audience. the first 2 were wrestled over and reduced to shreds. one of the recipients was kind enough to tear off a small shred for me. It really smelled strong- some really good fragrance on it...
      But when he threw the third shirt out, I was able to jump and catch it alhtough I didnt really plan the jump and I landed painfully and got a nice wide sec of skin removed upside of left knee. I got it safely under my shirt and it's intact, except 3 button holes ripped when he tore it off and it lost one button. All I can say is that He must be a LOT taller than he looks, because I'm around 6'5 or so, and it fits me like a GLOVE!!! I gave the first shred to a friend. She was sooooooo thrilled! she licked it! Also got a roll of film, but it's a disposable so the quality will probly rot. ciao,
                                                                                    Lee
      I could not have asked for more. I think I'll be high for a few days. Opening act was super-cool, the whole event was all around fantastic, a 10.

  • At last! Morrissey performs in Birmingham, well worth the wait, the show was absolutely amazing! Everyone had a great time, singing and cheering, best crowd yet! Moz talked some, my favorite line being that after 19 years he had gone to see a dentist and that for once in his life he had been cured of something- in Birmingham, Alabama. So cool! The last shirt he threw started a frenzy, at this point security made a mad dash, and so did I, to the front row. Thanks to the guy who helped me climb on stage! Morrissey made a cute little gesture, like "please don't hurt me" (I wonder if he recognized me from Knoxville? doubt it) so I backed off, then he surprised me by leaning down and lifting me up! All I could do was wrap my legs around him! Security was so incredibly nice!!! They actually helped me get back to the front row! I bought Boz a drink afterwards. Please post pics if you have them!!!!

  • Does anyone know where the intro from Morrissey's shows come from? It's a woman's voice speaking in monotone. It can be heard on the "Who Put the M in Manchester?" DVD. It sends chills down me.

  • This was my third show - Atlanta/LA last year and now Birmingham and this was the best! I never thought I could get so close and this was a great venue to see him at. Since I was so close and never had been before, thought I'd try to get a handshake, but never was successful, even though the two to the right of me did and the guy to the left on different occassions. Just didn't know the best way to get a handshake next time (if that's ever in my future)? It was a little bit of a downer to be so close and to see people who weren't really trying get shakes instead. Just curious.

  • Looking for a few photos of the Bham show. No commercial purposes; I just want to add some to my weekend blog update. Please e-mail any photos (or sites were I can download) to [email protected] It was a memorable night for my wife and me. I shook Mozzer's hand three times! I felt like he was coming back to me each time - I would leave her for him! Just kidding, honey.

    Thanks so much.

  • A nice sized "Thank You" to my Memphis neighbor in row K, it was great sharing the show with you. I hope my post show directions weren't too horrible.

    Also, quite a glowing review from Birmingham News, but I already knew it was outstanding...

    Morrissey brings Irish blood, English heart to Birmingham
    Saturday, July 21, 2007
    SHERRI GOODMAN
    News staff writer
    Morrissey - heralded as the crown prince of melancholy - put on a positively buoyant show Thursday night, keeping a near-capacity crowd on its feet through a 20-song set at the Alabama Theatre.

    The former lead singer of The Smiths, clad in a black button-down shirt and dress pants, took the stage with his new band following a lengthy montage of video clips featuring James Dean, Brigitte Bardot and the New York Dolls.

    He captured the crowd immediately and set the mood of the show with the opening lines of The Smiths' song, "Panic," which has a reference to the "streets of Birmingham." Against a backdrop of large images of Dean's face, he effortlessly moved from the influential alternative band's material to songs from his solo efforts, including "First of the Gang to Die," "Irish Blood/English Heart" and "Let Me Kiss You."

    The set included several songs from his latest release, "Ringleader of the Tormentors."

    His wry humor, apparent in his lyrics, was on full display Thursday. He jokingly introduced The Smiths' "Girlfriend in a Coma" as his version of "Sweet Home Alabama." He held hands, passed the mic to adoring fans along the front, and thanked Hoover dentist Dr. Betty Lee for fixing his teeth.

    But there wasn't a chance for the audience to be bored. The 48-year-old kept the energy level up, sashaying, swaying and even strutting as he crossed the stage. He worked up a sweat, and, much to the delight of the Morrissey faithful, he took off his shirt revealing his chest not once but three times.

    One of his last numbers was the fittingly cynical "Life Is a Pigsty" from his latest release. The song, which runs more than seven minutes, ended with Morrissey on his back, feet in the air. He followed it with the angst-ridden "How Soon is Now" and drove the front of the crowd into a frenzy during the "Last of the International Playboys."

    He apologized for a series a "drastic cancellations" in the 1980s that kept him from Birmingham. But after the warm reception he received Thursday, chances are he'll be back.
