While I would usually body swerve anything at the aircraft hangar that is the O2
it was heartening to see a near sell out 18,000 crowd sending their love and adulation to Morrissey.
That he managed to achieve moments of real intimacy in such circumstances was testament
to his enduring charm, showmanship and rich baritone (as powerful as it's ever been)
With half the set culled from the latest album, he once again emphasised that he is no nostalgia act.

"Trouble Loves Me" was a highlight and could well be Moz's signature tune
"Meat Is Murder" both heard him at his most impassioned, and best showcased his fantastic, much maligned band.
While there were no thoughts throughout the main set that this could be the last time he performs on a British stage
his pronouncement before "Asleep" to "Remember me, forget my fate" profoundly brought that very real possibility
into my mind..

Thanks a lot for this!!!


we're really just alone
Excellent work, sounds great, many thanks...
Re the criticism of the band elsewhere, this recording seems to strike a decent balance and you get a good sound across the stage.
On the night itself, it wasn't quite as easy on the ear mind you (I'm referring to pre-Jesse material being performed), but everything post Jesse is fine with me, considering he's writing plenty of the material, he can bloomin' well play whatever he wants.
