Notes from PassionsJustLikeMine.com
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This first solo Morrissey show was also meant as a farewell Smiths concert. The
musicians backing Morrissey were ex-Smiths Mike Joyce and Andy Rourke, as well
as once Smiths #5 Craig Gannon filling in as guitarist. The setlist was a mix of
Morrissey tracks with Smiths tracks from 1987, so nothing that had been
performed in front of a live audience before. The Smiths song were actually
never played live since either.
Admission was free to anyone wearing a Morrissey shirt, but most people turned
up with Smiths shirts and were still admitted. Only half of fans who traveled to
Wolverhampton made it inside the venue. Outside the queuing and organisation
almost turned to chaos. The atmosphere inside was obviously very charged. There
was a great deal of cheering and chanting Morrissey's name to the English
football tune. Throughout the short set, many fans made it on stage, much more
than for a typical Smiths concert.
Morrissey came on stage to a thunder of applause, after a long period of
cheering and chanting. In the first song, "Stop Me If You Think You've Heard
This One Before", he sang "And so I drank one, or was it four?" instead of "...
it became four". He actually sang that line as it had been originally written
and not as it appeared on "Strangeways Here We Come". Before "Interesting Drug"
which was yet unreleased and unknown to the fans, Morrissey started "This song
is called..." but never finished his line. In that song as in the previous one,
"Disappointed", Morrissey missed many lines because of the mayhem with the fans
keeping him away from his microphone.
Just before "Suedehead", Mike Joyce teased the fans with a few notes of the drum
intro to "The Queen Is Dead", but that song was not to be played. Morrissey
changed a line in "Suedehead" to "Oh so many blank pages" instead of "oh som
many illustrations". He also sang "I'm so very saddened, oh, I am so sickened
NOW". Before "The Last Of The Famous International Playboys" Morrissey started
"I'd like to say hello..." but didn't finish his line and simply introduced the
next song.
Before "Death At One's Elbow" Morrissey managed to say what he had originally
meant to: "I'd like to say hello to Julian and hello to Mouse.... your mother's
letter arrived today, she has a good hand...". In that song Morrissey changed a
line from "you'll slip on the trail of my bespattered remains" to "you'll slip
on the trail of all of my entrails". After that number and its final lines
"Goodbye my love, goodbye my love", Morrissey just said "goodbye" and everyone
left the stage. They were called back with much insistence and performed one
more song, a very rocking "Sweet And Tender Hooligan".

I second that!! I have only been collecting The Smiths' shows for a shorter period of time than the other bands I collect, and I was floored when I found out this show even existed!
Peace,

The quality is medium, but you will not find any great quality bootleg, I'm looking for a great quality in the last 10 years without sucess
