This concert went down well, Morrissey seemed generally in good spirits despite the lack of enthusiasm of a portion of the audience. Security wasn't very strict, so quite a few fans made it on stage throughout the gig. "The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get" and "Reader Meet Author" were dropped from the setlist to make way for "Now My Heart Is Full" and "Lost".
Morrissey and his band hit the stage at the end of the James Bond theme. Morrissey was holding a roll of toilet paper which he threw into the audience before greeting it with "Hello Jersey". He then asked "Can I have the roll back? Can I have it back? I actually didn't mean to throw it, it just jumped, I'm sorry..." After the opening song, as the roll was given back to him, he returned to the subject: "Is that the roll? That's ok, you can keep it now... I really think you should keep it... I must learn how to throw a lavatory roll properly... there's so much I don't know..."
After "Billy Budd" Morrissey extended his greeting with "Welcome to this quaint theatre to hear some extremely violent music... oh yes!" After "Hairdresser On Fire" he said "We heard that this night sold out very quickly, which is very encouraging... and means a lot to us because we know that people like to say horrible things about me... so can I just say... thank you!" Further into the set, the crowd favourite "Half a Person" was introduced with "All of these songs have very deep meaning... apart from this next one..."
After "Half A Person" Morrissey said something and added "...that is true, oh God!" Then, to someone who was shouting to him, he asked "What? Say something nice!" He made most of the usual live changes in the current acoustic arrangement of "Now My Heart Is Full", such as "Anthony Newley raised to wait" and "I just can't explain so why should I try to?", but he also adapted a line for the locals by singing "every jammy Jersey poet". At the end of that song he tossed his shirt into the audience and requested "I'd like the shirt dry cleaned and posted back to me please... and I won't say whoever gets the shirt gets me because... because they don't!"
Following "Lost" Morrissey chatted with fanzine editor Julia Riley. He asked her "Do you wanna say something?" He then shushed the impatient crowd and said "Julia's gonna say something..." He handed her the microphone so she could ask him how he was doing. He answered "How am I? I'm very well... travel weary..." The very dramatic "Meat Is Murder" was then introduced with "This next song is about very basic human moral duty..." As tradition dictated he followed the song with the moral: "So the next time your granny tries to pull you into Murder King, Just! Say! No!".
As the band was about to go into "I Am Hated For Loving" a fan shouted "I love you Morrissey" and the object of the love jokingly replied "It's a phase... I'm still going through it..." Another shirt was thrown into the audience during "The Teachers Are Afraid Of The Pupils" and this time Morrissey's comment was "It's okay, I know I'm fat so you can stop whispering (crowd cheers)... well it just means there's more of me to cuddle (crowd cheers)... and that's the kind of thing you'd say on the Ricky Lake show..." He then introduced the following number: "This song is called 'Why Can I Have Both?'..."
After "I Can Have Both" Morrissey asked someone in the audience "Did you make your shirt yourself? Did you make it yourself? Very nice, very nice... I'm glad you found your spectacles..." In "Boxers" a line was changed to "Will time never pass for you". After the song he answered someone with "I've never heard of them actually" and proceeded to introduce "Is It Really So Strange?" with the line "This song was written before I was even born... that old, it's that old!". After the song he added "And when you can never go back home again believe me, it's a great feeling".
Knowing this was their last chance, many fans crashed the stage in attempts to hug Morrissey during the encore of "Shoplifters Of The World Unite". In the melée the microphone was knocked from Morrissey's hand so security carried him off stage while the band continued for a short while then improvised an early ending.
