  • Was the intro Klaus Nomi's Wayward Sister. If so, I don't think Moz has used that for years.

  • Have not seen Moz in a few yrs and I have to say, this show was amazing, the energy from Morrissey and the band was amazing, great set list..Klaos Nomi opener was a shock, dusted off after many yrs..the loop, jack the ripper and sister I'm a poet were gems! Billy
    Bud and Why Don't you were awesome to hear..all in all, wicked show..can't wait for Sunday!!

  • Opening act was Girl in a Coma. Crowd seemed to love them. They were decent. Much more grrrl than Kristeen was.

    Great show, but damn that far-away barricade is really affecting the atmosphere. I was in the balcony and got a great view of all that was happening below, and the first few rows, which are usually rowdy, were very calm and still. Part of it was probably the type of people at the rails. There were a few old women who basically just held still there, no moving or singing or reaching for shakes or anything. Why do those people even try to get up close to the rail if they just squat there like lumps?

    Still, once again during the encore there was a rush of bodies to the stage. Not as successful as Tuesday, but a few got handshakes. One dude was basically thrown over the rails by the very crowd he was trying to plow through.

    Oh, and one guy did manage to invasion the stage, but that was mid-show, and right after Moz had already stepped away for a shirt change. the guy got up there, looked around, laughed at the situation, and then arturo very forcefully shoved him into the hands of another security guard. I think the security is really uptight after seeing all those previous invasions on Tuesday.

    Oh, and the venue has its head up its ass. It doesn't know how to set up lines, how to manage them, how to get people moving. It still lumps us regular folks with the 5-day package people, then asks them to step forward, throwing off the line, allowing people to cut. And in the day they split up the line so as not to block a driveway, and yet no one goes to the second line. they walk up to the first, so that you have people in the front of the line who have been there 5 minutes and people in the back who have been there hours. The venue staff has no clue what's going on, can't answer questions, barks their confused orders, and just generally makes the very beginning very stressful and annoying.

    Here you'll find my thoughts and I
  • I've been to all 3 NYC shows thus far and have to say that tonight was an issue of poor timing. While the show was "fine," it was the least impressive of all the 3 nights. The crowd was rowdy and ready to roll when moz hit the stage -- with crowd surfers only two songs into the show. But, the band and moz seemed a little sluggish out of the gate. As the crowd wained, Moz and the band pushed harder and harder to win back the excitement. Never really crossing....the band and Moz kicked ass during the final 3rd of the show, but the crowd was drunk and tired. Hopefully all will get rest tonight and I predict tomorrow and Sunday will kick ASS!

  • Did anyone else feel a kind of awkwardness in the air when Kristeen's vocals kicked in for "That's How People Grow Up." I think even Moz was displaying it.

  • Had a great night tonight. Thought Girl in a Coma were good, danced more to them than Kristeen. I was on Jesse's side 3 rows back and everyone around me was singing and knew most of the words which was nice. Moz asked someone in the front where they were from and they said "Paris" and the guy next to me chimed in with "Sheffield". I was too nervous to shout Scotland. Moz took some gifts, an lp, which he placed on the drum riser and a purple cuddly toy. I have a picture but can't post till I get back to Scotland. Some one else gave him some kind of action type figure in a box and he studied it and then he said something about it being "New York humour" and he would laugh about it tommorrow. Threw out one dark coloured shirt and then the t-shirt at the end. Morrissey was wearing lighter coloured jeans than the last time, he looked amazing. All the band were wearing pale pink shirts and similar pale jeans. Came back out wearing the white embroidered shirt. During HSIN he seemed to be getting a bit tangled up in his mic cord, at one bit it ended up loosely around his neck. He got down and did a bit of a workout on the drum riser, he was there for ages. There was a small stage invasion at the last song. The girl in front of me got up on the barrier and the guy next to her was helping her up but she didn't quite make it and landed in the pit. Morrissey saw her fall and pulled a face but he then grabbed her hand and pulled her up onto the stage. This made a gap at the rail and a few people jumped over but I don't know if they actually made it as I put my head down as there were lots of feet flying. Morrissey moved over to the other side and security were a bit overwhelmed. It was a great show, too many good points, Morrissey dancing like his old self with the tambourine during The Loop, he was really shaking it,loved Ganglord, Pigsty, Jack the Ripper, Stretch. Oh and Morrissey does wear underwear as I got a good picture when he took of the black t-shirt and his jeans were down low.

  • Shoplifters - - including the part where moz is taking the NY dolls Lp.
    Sister I'm a poet -

    Excellent show and I was so happy he did shoplifters again as I was wearing the Elvis single cover Smiths shirt :-)

    2 more show to go and I am still waiting for Piccadilly Palare!!!

    Oh and thank god (or cunnilingus) that Kristeen is off the tour, together with this tour, the UK one and the last US, I have seen her more times than most of my favourite bands...

    More videos to follow soon.

  • Well it was my first Morrissey show and it was a great show. (since i can't compare it). I almost got his shirt and by the end of the night I went from being fifth from the gate to second.
    only bad things:
    -drunk rowdy people ready to fight.
    -people skipping the line and going to the first line when I was there since noon.
    -oh and someone stepped on my head and nose...ouch!
    but oh well. I still enjoyed it.
    I also got my friend Laura into Morrissey and she was in awe when he came out.
    oh and thanks to this guy I met while in the crowd. He was really nice and passed around some gum. sorry i forgot your name. :)

  • OK..Listen..was anyone else around the weird crucifix lady? WTF was that all about?

    I was up at the front on the right side and some lady and her old man come barrel assing up into the crowd in front of us and she's pumping a crucifix HARDCORE through the entire show.
    I was really skeeved out. She had a greasy braid and orange sunglasses. Way out place and way scary. She kept making nasty comments about the people around her like she owned the joint.

    PS. Hi to the folks that were in front of me.
    I'm not sure of your accent, excuse me ,but I think it was English or Irish.
    I heard you mention Morrissey-Solo, but I couldn't talk to you because I was too busy staring at the crucific lady.

  • Does anyone know what each of the band members use for picks? I found one on the floor on the way out...mine is a yellow Dunlop .73 mm version. I saw Jessie throwing yellow picks into the crow during the show but I think they all use yellow versions.

    Any info greatly appreciated.

  • Nothing really stellar, just a couple short clips so far. The unsteadiness is explained below! You can check out the videos at: and

    (hopefully more to come, I'm new at YouTube and some over 100k, not sure what to do!)

    So, great show tonight. Not as good as Tuesday (set list didn't have the same energy in the beginning imho), and really no good stage invasions. But, I think it just might be the total asshats that I was surrounded by. I was about 4 or 5 people back left of center and anyone near me knows the one dude in particular I'm talking about. The stoned off his rocker, blank-staring waste of space who met an equally stoned girl, both of whom tried to saunter down to the front and didn't make it, mainly thanks to me :)

    Not only that, my videos are a little rocky because I was constantly being bumped into by stoner, female friend of stoner and then, most disturbingly, by an extremely androgynous, waifish, crystal-meth addict looking, REALLY drunk girl who kept dry-humping me while trying to take really crappy pictures. I really could not have been surrounded by more annoying people! Though, besides them, most around me were great.

    And to my friend from Texas, if you read this, hope to see you sunday (front row!) and all my pictures came out blurry or I would have emailed them to you. If someone can post how to set a digital camera to take good indoor pics it'd be much appreciated.

  • I observed last night that the man, the myth, the legend’s, voice keeps on getting increasingly and constantly more beautiful than ever. There is literally no one, no artist, no singer, not anyone -- that can surpass Morrissey’s unique and mesmerizing angel voice. How radio stations do not play him is something I’ll never never comprehend. I especially love all of his new songs. I have come to accumulate a new epiphany regarding Paris. Paris Hilton’s family, if you trace them back to hundreds of years ago, literally hailed from Dublin. Hence now after months of analyzing the song, I think when Morrissey is referencing Paris in the song, I think it is highly likely that he is drawing the connection that he is contemplating a future stop in Dublin maybe.
    I guess it wasn’t meant to be that I gave you that last night but it’s the symbolism that counts and when it’s meant to be, I shall give it to you.

    God Bless you Morrissey. You were one -- you knew you were one and you shall always remain number one in my book -- Always.

  • posted this in another thread, under another name. for some reason i couldnt use my same login & password here. but this was somehting i posted in the forum section so that might have been the problem. anyway here it is. I hope morrissey & the boys go out on a big note this weekend before leaving the nyc area.

    [QUOTE=newbie;684119]1ST ever morrissey show last night. one of the best rock concerts i have ever experienced. over the top. a very very good show.

    morrissey, the band, and the audience were hot from the first note. i was first row, center, balcony, and i had the best experience ever. high energy firiday night nyc show. what friday night rock shows should be. a blistering sweaty melodic mess. as it should be.

    I am 41 and only got into morrissey/the smiths about 5 yrs ago. but last night i got a whole knew perspective on morrissey.

    highly recommended.

    they were brutal in a good way. great musicians. the rhythm section was tremedous. great guitarist(s), pulling out acoustics when need be, that could always be heard. couple guys mutli-instrumentalists. i think there were trombone, clarinets/oboes, accordian, friggin awesome. I do think the drummer was MVP band member though. he was EXCELLENT. This could have been a zeppelin show or somehting. these guys rocked. and the audience luved it. yet, through-out it all, morrissey's great poetry, voice, and melody somehow always remained center focus.

    morrissey was sounding wonderful, going from a deep kind of voice and then hitting hi-notes. Alittle operatic in such a good way. also he was into his bands swing like everyone else. he could have just gone along for the ride, but he was out there giving each song it own wonderful sincerity & unique vibe. considerin how energetic & loud the band palyed, you still picked up on alot of morrissey's nuanced singing style.

    he really gave his heart last night, at least i think so.

    his voice was like another instrument. last night morrissy was the foreman and his band the wrecking crew. I luved it when he said "are you tough enough," " or "are you ready?"(cant remember the exact words) and we were yelling right back, "yeah!!" it was rowdy but not towards each other. To me it seems like everyone simply wanted to release there own energy at morrissey and the band (and dare i say, release them at life's frustrations & realities :)) but in a celebratory manner. More like, "thanks gents for giving us the chance to have a great sweaty time, singing & dancing!" (although i heard in this thread a fight broke out, but i didnt witness it. too bad for that. i hope no one was seriously hurt.)

    My friend was in shock at what he was witnessing. I told him, this is not like the bootlegs you have heard of him in the past. I told him, these guys are going to peel the paint back, but the sound quality remained excellent throughout. the 1st 4-5 songs were relentless in their energy...and yet the energy NEVER let up.

    we had hit a great nyc irsh pub before hand but morrissey & his merry band slapped us sober. they came out like a pile driver. and we were happy and glad for it.

    really really extraordinary performance & experience.[/QUOTE]
