This is the final of the boots I've picked up over the years (unfortunately). Here is what PJLM has to say about the show (I haven't listened to it in a while but I hope it is better than the 'poor' source that PJLM references):
11 October 1997
The Joint Hard Rock Hotel, Las Vegas, NV
Maladjusted
The Boy Racer
Alma Matters
Billy Budd
Reader Meet Author
The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get
Hold On To Your Friends
Roy's Keen
Speedway
Now My Heart Is Full
Paint A Vulgar Picture
The Teachers Are Afraid Of The Pupils
/Shoplifters Of The World Unite
This show was disappointing for many fans but maybe not as much as the previous one in San Diego. There was a good deal of pushing, shoving and surfing in the audience. The pit between the stage and the crowd was wide and filled with security, so nobody made it up to Morrissey. The man himself seemed in reasonably good spirits and talkative, although most of what he said was cryptic.
As in San Diego, the set was shortened, but this time only by one song, "Sunny" (which was on the setlist but skipped). "The Teachers Are Afraid Of The Pupils" was not skipped this time, and "Maladjusted" was reinstated, replacing "Ambitious Outsiders".
Entering stage, Morrissey shouted "Laaaas Vegas!" before going into "Maladjusted" which was returning to the set after a break of a few dates. After the song Morrissey said to his fans "It's very nice to be here". After "Billy Budd" he teased them by saying "You're very sexy, please come closer". Before "Roy's Keen", Morrissey said "I don't mind that you sweat, please feel free, just let it happen. If its gonna happen, just let it happen, it should happen, it happened. If it doesn't happen, you won't have it." After the song he said something that sounded like "Thank you buddhists" then introduced "Speedway" with the words "This song (pause) is not good". After that song, the crowd broke into a chant of Morrissey's name, but they were interrupted by Morrissey telling them "I forgot to tell you, I've changed hairdo".
A poor audience recording of the full set is circulated on bootlegs and on the internet.
