  • Songs included: Squeezing my Skull, Poor Education, Seasick, Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others - and Billy Budd.

    Dedicated Crashing Bores to a Times journalist who called him offensive in a review of the Troxy gig.

    Most sweet of him to thank all those fans who follow him from country to country. He doesn't know your names, but he knows your faces :)!

    Almost a great gig - pity those idiots on the left of the audience who preferred to go to and from the bar the whole evening, rudely interrupting everyone's experience of the show. What was the point of you being there?

    I was in the best of moods when I got there and felt that I saw the introductory clips for the first time even though I had looked at them how often now? When Chrissie suddenly stood on stage I almost fainted. :-D What a great start to the concert!

    Then Morrissey came on stage and I felt that he was thinking too much of this being the last concert of the tour and that it was over for him already. And I hoped that tomorrow he would wake up, sit there and wish he had made the most of his time with all those beautiful people who were there that moment but whom he somehow did not seem to see. Then he mentioned the journalist and I thought "Oh, so this is the reason? One Times journalist?" During Life is a Pigsty I had reached a point when I was fed up and reconsidered if I really want to go to concerts in October and November. It started to get to my own system as it does if somebody else is slightly down. If this had really been my only concert in London this would have been pretty bad, but I cannot complain, I paid less than half the price on ebay. The guy called Morrissey woke up during Life is a Pigsty, thanked people who came to his concert afterwards, as mentioned above, and gave a great concert from then on so that I got what I paid for. ;-D

    He seemed to be aware that he was not in the best of moods, changed shirts after Carol and came back saying that it makes all the difference. It does, I would have changed to that light blue shirt after all that I had considered to wear to the concert. :-D The shirt change made a slight obvious difference to Morrissey. Then to talk about the journalist seemed to help as well. But it was not until the end of Pigsty that he really woke up. From then on he was in a great mood, as he had been the night before. If only it had been like this all the time, at least it was for the last part.

    During the intermission video show something wrong with the projector Lou Reed press conference footage was suddenly cut off, but abour 5 minutes later it was fixed.

    As Cossy already posted we're greeted by Chrissie Hynde which was a lovely surprise.

    Very pleased the some changes of the setlist, particularly 'Billy Budd' and 'Skull'.

    Morrissey was chatty tonight, but I can't remember what he said.
    During 'Because of My Poor Education' Morrissey was asking the crowd 'can you sing?' then handed the microphone, but two people only made some noise.

    'Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others' had some lyrics changes.

    Four London shows were totally enjoyable and most of us had wonderful time especially at Brixton.
    Very sorry to see a person who was crying after the show because she has to wait until October to see next gig.
    Glad to see a person who travelled to see London gigs from abroad. Brixton shows wiped out the bad memories of last year's Roundhouse cancellations.

  • As regular reader of this forum (but not contributor, alas) I felt i had to comment upon tonights gig. Having seen Moz around 20 times, i have seen great gigs, and average ones - his final night at Brixton tonight was definitley up there with the best I've seen. The freshening up of the set list had been called for, the introduction from Chrissie Hynde was a great start, and the way he regularly whipped his microphone cord was reminiscent of his most energetic gigs - he looked up for it, more so than Troxy, more than the first night at Brixton, and more so than for quite a while. On this form, Moz is way ahead of anyone else playing today. The crowd was great from what I saw and you couldn't tell it was a midweek gig - much more like the orignal Saturday night that was scheduled. They really responded to surprises like Billy Budd which got everyone going. Loads of people tried making it to the stage towards the end, seemingly everyone making the effort was rewarded with a handshake.
    All in all, proof that when he wants to be, Morrissey is still the most charismatic and alluring pop star around.
    Agree or disagree?!

  • My first gig this tour & took 3 friends who have not seen the Mozster before. Mixed reaction: two thought he was v good and one thought he was going through the motions at times.

    I agree with both views: generally I thought it was a good gig but that some of the Smiths numbers were perfunctory renditions at best (Charming, Ask, Girlfriend even Some Girls). This was a pity as it undermined a night which at times was stunning. Carol, Payroll, Education and OK By Myself were my unexpected highlights and got the most positive reaction from my friends. It seemed clear to me that Moz engaged much more emotionally, vocally and physicallly with these performances than others tonight.

    Had the crowd pleasing Smiths stuff above been dropped and replaced with say: Speedway, Birthday, You're Gonna Need and Boxers then it would have been a much better and braver set in my view and may motivate our man more.

    Generally Moz was in very good voice and the band were tight. However compared to previous gigs in years gone by the connection to the audience seemed weaker than in the past...at times it felt like a relationship that has run it's course and is perhaps living in the past a bit...just another gig. Sometimes I long for those Forum gigs from the quiet years when the audience was more hardcore and so was Moz.

    Having said all that I still had huge grin on my face throughout and sang along heartily and look forward to the Autumn!

    Rest up Moz, forget the Smiths and play your solo classics!

  • This was my first 'proper' Morrissey gig, having seen him at O2 a year ago.
    I was blown away. Setlist at O2was maybe a bit more varied, but Brixton won hands down for atmosphere and the fact that I felt I could actually see Moz. I was about 20 metres back, but the view was crystal clear, rather than the man being just a distant figure on a cavernous stage.
    The performance was wonderful, the banter amusing. There was that hairy moment where he almost got pulled into the crowd by the over-enthusiatic handshaker during FOTGTD, but otherwise seemed to be enjoying himself.

    Not sure I can really pick out any individual highlights, as the whole thing was one big highlight. I was over the moon to hear 'Skull' and 'Payroll' as I had possibly been looking forward to those the most since the tour started, and I wasn't too confident seeing as he'd dropped them recently.

    Wonderful experience, I adored every second.

  • I think it was between 'Because of my poor Education' and 'Life is a Pigsty' Morrissey said: "Jean Charles de Menezes, we will never forget, we will never forget" or similar sentiment. Of course 22nd July is the fourth anniversary of his at Stockwell Underground station. That station is just one stop away from Brixton.

  • During one song, can't remember which one exactly but it was definitely off of Years of Refusal, Morrissey made a mistake! He started singing too early or the wrong part, I couldn't quite tell- it just sounded weird, but just smiled and started joking "Is this when I sing then? Do I sing now?" as the music continued.
    There was a slight pause while I suppose he decided what to do before he simply said "can you sing? you do it!" and threw the microphone into the crowd.
    At which point a bloke grabbed the microphone and yelled "wheeeeeey!" and a girl also shouted into it I think.
    Anyway, Moz took the microphone back, wiped it disgustedly several times on his shirt, and regular service was resumed.

    It was an absolutely fantastic night. Morrissey I love you!

    i had a fantastic time at this brilliant gig..i was up in the circle which sucked a bit as the view was kind of through 2 little railings ,didnt bother us much though...i really enjoyed it ,at the end i hung about and was rewarded with the glimpse of him in a really nice suit getting into the silver car and away....got a few nice pix though then met boz and exchanged pleasentries...ive met morrissey several times when he was in the smiths as my band recorded in the same studio as him when he was doing hatful of hollow(im going back a long way)amazon in liverpool...anyway ive got several questions id love answered ,,these are said questions
    1...who was that man on the big backdrop ,i immedietly want the hair style
    2..who was the kind of elvis impersonator guy in the vid ...looked like shane fenton a bit ,,very bizarre semi aggressive behaviour
    3..ive always wondered what happens after the gig ,in the hour b4 they all pop out into the night?
    4...when morrissey speeds away ..does he go to friends house?hotel?or where and to do what?is he so tired he just crashes(not litterally)or is he so hyped up he parties etc?
    ive played a few gigs(stand up/poetry check me out on youtube"jason t richardson poet")and i cant imagine just going to have a cuppa after something like brixton?
    im going with my daughter also to the liverpool echo arena gig hope its as good ..(my fave bit was him singing send me the pillow the one that you dream of...0,,j

  • Brixton (Score:2, Interesting)

    Maybe I have just been to too many good Moz gigs but the Brixton gigs were not that great in my opinion. The sound was terrible for a start. The crowd were well and truly up for it every night but I am not convinced that Morrissey was. The last night he made a right mess of Pigsty losing his place at least twice. The band at times seemed to lose their way during other songs and the trombone playing was bad..I was actually listening and paying attention, not at the front as per usual and very sober..so I was disappointed overall. This Charming Man is my absolute favourite Smiths song and while I know that Jesse et al can't replace Johnny Marr I still feel a bit peeved that tribute bands can perform this better than they can, Morrissey however does sing it well.The Loop again was the highlight each night but did suffer slightly at the end without Alain's playing. In fact, quite a few songs were missing Alain's brilliant guitar. I have noticed this increasingly each gig I go to and maybe I am a little biased but I don't think Jesse is that great.

    Probably get lots of negative replies now but I am giving my opinion of the gigs. I have been to more gigs than I can count and I honestly don't think that Morrissey is delivering like he really can. Having said that the last night at Brixton was the best of the recent batch.

  • I forgive you for calling me a girl :) with myself in a state of such excitment lord only knows what I sounded like.
    Anyone have any pictures of First of The Gang? I was holding hands with Moz for a good 5 seconds whilst security attempted to stop me getting onto the stage,(damn them) would love it if someone had a pic of me shaking his hand(pulling him off stage ha). But seriously, security did allow most people to shake his hand with Morrissey's help of course. I don't think anyone tried to get onto stage and didn't get a hand shake which is good. That gig was amazing and getting so close to him is something I will never forget.

  • Thank the memory that was made in the murder of Jean Charles during the show. That justice is done.

  • I did, however, lay in bed listening to 'Years of Refusal.' Comparing it to the crap most bands are producing in 2009, I was blown away. I played it to a friend who was astonished at the lyrical twists and odd-sounding arrangements. It made me realise that we judge Morrissey based on an impossible standard: that is, that he must Change Our Lives each and every time we play his albums. Clearly, this is not possible.

    YOR is, however, a magnificent record, probably the most interesting of 2009 so far with 6 or 7 fantastic songs.

  • My final wish for Morrissey's career is that he get a guitarist worthy of his talent. I know he enjoys 'the lads' company and feels comfortable around them. But I can't help but wish Jesse Tobias would suffer severe, intractable tennis elbow and have to step aside to allow Bernard Butler or John Squire to take their place alongside the maestro. Boz is great to have in there and Alain is a fine songsmith. But where's the virtuosity? Imagine hearing that magnificently Marr-esque blues guitar of Butler alongside Morrissey's singing voice. In fact, imagine Count Morrissey's words and vocie appearing on Dog Man Star rather than the amateurish Sir Brett's. Butler has melancholy, flair, elegance and a talent for melody. Jesse Tobias has... a cool haircut. I honestly cannot see the attraction of having his bland guitar parts and flat songs on the record.

    As Morrissey moves into the Winter of his career.

    He needs to stop releasing videos as they look plainly ridiculous.

    He needs to stop 'appearing' on his record sleeves as old age is the enemy of good style. (the young morrissey would have known this)

    He needs to approach Lord Butler and ask him to replace the tedious Jesse and join Boz, and the lads in exploring new musical soundscapes. Both Morrissey and Bernard need the challenge. BB is correct when he says that Morrissey's band fail to provide him with the imaginative, expansive sound his songs deserve. I cannot recall more than one or two memorable guitar parts from any of Morrissey's solo outings. Morrissey's voice needs the music of Bernard Butler and he may once again hit the heights he did in The Smiths.
