Night 2 of this three-nighter at Pasadena's Civic Auditorium went down well. The band was slightly better than on the previous date, Morrissey was still in excellent spirits and the audience still incredibly receptive. Morrissey was actually very playful with his lyrics and often adlibbed funny comments between lines, many of which undecipherable to most. He might still have been unhappy about the sound because he often pointed to his ear as if he could not hear himself sing. One big change was the increase in security, probably because of the previous night's troubles. Because of this only one fan made it on stage, during the first encore. There was absolutely no change in the setlist.
"Hi, Y'all!" Morrissey growled as he picked up his microphone. After set opener "Panic" he extended his greetings with "Welcome to bout 2!" In "The Youngest Was The Most Loved" he sang the slightly extended "We kept him from the world's glare thank God! he turned into a killer" and "there is no such thing in life as normal, believe me!" After the song he answered the audience's cheers with "It's a beautiful sound!"
Morrissey was again very playful with his lyrics in "You Have Killed Me". On the previous leg of the tour he regularly changed the first line to "Pasolini is he..." while pointing at the Pasolini backdrop. Now instead of that he sang "Pasadena is me, Accatone you will always be". On the next occurrence of that line further down he sang "Tony Franciosa is me, Diana Dors you will always be". He followed this with "I entered no one and entered me". He also did a few more common live changes but instead of the usual "Piazza Cavour what the hell's my life for", he sang "Piazza Cavour what the hell is my body for".
After "Disappointed" Morrissey announced "I know that you think that these are just merely songs (crowd cheers)... oh you do, you really do, however they are, they're actually trophies... Julia knows..." After "Ganglord" he said "We're all very very sad to see the passing of Tower Records (crowd boos) Oh we are, we're all really sad to see the passing of Tower Records (crowd boos) Is somebody not sad? (crowd: no!) Why? What ill did Tower Records ever do to you? You can't please everybody Julia... (then turning to someone shouting a reply) What? What?" After "I'll Never Be Anybody's Hero Now" Morrissey proceeded with the customary band introduction: "The folks who live on the hill... are: Boz Boorer... Boz Boorer... and Boz Boorer!... Here's our new friend Solomon... who is the brother of Matt... dear old Jesse Tobias... our new friend Vincent... and my name is Dryden Mitchell..."
In "William, It Was Really Nothing" Morrissey still changed "God knows I'm trying to live mine" to "I'm here trying to live mine", but he also replaced "...it was your life", to "...just your miserable life". He ended the song by shouting "take that!". Before moving into the follow up he simply used one of his lines from "I Have Forgiven Jesus": "by Friday, life has killed me". In Irish Blood, English Heart" he changed a line to "You can see me standing by the flag..."
Besides the usual live lyric changes in "I Will See You In Far Off Places" he sang "one day I will close my mouth forever" and "If George W B doesn't kill you". He had trouble keeping up with his words after the latter line and adlibbed here and there. Before "Girlfriend In A Coma" he apologised for the high ticket prices and blamed them on Kristeen Young's hair and makeup budget (exact banter is undecipherable). In that number he followed the line "girlfriend in a coma, I know, I know it's serious" with "...oh schucks!"
"Everyday Is Like Sunday" was introduced with "If you can possibly think back to many many many years... yep, it was a hell of a long time ago, well KROQ actually played me... (commenting on the crowd cheers) I appreciate it though some of you weren't even born, and I was only (motions to knee) that high, and I sang this song..." In it "etch on a postcard" was still replaced by "scratch on a postcard" but instead of following this with "Oh Mama! how I dearly wish I was not here" as he had been doing lately, he sang "...to your mother, how I dearly wish I had never been born". He also reintroduced the older live change "please come, please come nuclear bomb". Also, the line "win yourself a cheap tray" was changed to "win yourself a cheap date".
In "In The Future When All's Well" Morrissey made the usual live changes plus "I will lie down anywhere, and be sat on", "Everyday I play a pointless game called..." and "I thank you with what's left of my heart". He was very playful and again adlibbed many bits, such as "the future... what future? (...) To hell! To hell!". After the song he announced "I know it's very hard to believe, that's a very good song..." At the very beginning of "I've Changed My Plea To Guilty" he sang "I'm standing in the dark of your home" and further down "can't you see how your rules spoil the game".
Morrissey bridged "I've Changed My Plea To Guilty" to "Let Me Kiss You" with "That's a particularly dreadful song... and this song is hopeless in its optimism... and it's called 'For God's Sake Somebody, Anybody, Let Me Kiss You'..." Besides the usual changes in the latter title, he also sang "close your eyes, go on! and think of someone you physically admire..." As usual he threw his shirt in the crowd at the end of that song and seeing the craziness in front of him he asked "Why do you scream? (crowd cheers) I'm 65! (...) Would anybody like to say anything I'll hand you the microphone if you've got something interesting to say. No? Okay..."
After "The National Front Disco" Morrissey said "So no Grammies for me... no awards for me... I'm not good enough... No Grammy Awards for me Julia, except the ones that count (crowd cheers)... which are... you..." He looked very shy when he said this, he was almost blushing. He changed the gender of a line in "Dear God Please Help Me" to "then she motions to me, with her hand on my knee". Later he answered "Dear God did this kind of thing happen to you?" with "No? Shame..." He followed "the heart feels free..." with "... at last!". At some point into "How Soon Is Now?" he let the audience sing "I am human and I need to be loved" and then punctuated this with "not me!". Later on he sang "look at me! I have already waited too long", a variation on an earlier live change.
As the end of the concert was approaching, Morrissey teasingly introduced "I Just Want To See The Boy Happy" with "This next song is called 'Get Off The Stage'..." In "Life Is A Pigsty" he slightly extended a few lines to "...but with brand new broken fortunes unfortunately I am the same underneath..." and "How come I'm still the same underneath..." When he returned to the stage for the second encore he said "If you're not coming here tomorrow night please remember I will see you in far off places... God bless you!" In final song "Don't Make Fun Of Daddy's Voice" he changed a line to "...because *I* can't help it, when he was a teenage boy, somebody got stuck in his throat".
