This was the second consecutive rambunctious show in this table-seating casino venue. Before Morrissey even came on, fans were out of their seats crushing the stage, moving chairs and tables out of the way for a chance to shake Morrissey's hand. Security was very tight and only one fan made it on stage, during the encore. Morrissey was in excellent spirits. After opening with "The Queen Is Dead" he introduced himself: "Thank you, my name is Andy Williams..." Later in the evening he mentioned other people who may have also played the Nugget stage, such as Bobby Darin and Liberace. Aware that everything he was doing now ended up on the internet, and seeing all the camera phones aimed his way, he greeted the audience at some point by saying "Hello Youtube!".

Once again the setlist was shortened by one song. The Smiths' "Girlfriend In A Coma" replaced "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" while "Irish Blood, English Heart" was dropped. The latter number might have been planned as a second encore to be played after "You're Gonna Need Someone On Your Side", but this is unconfirmed.


An audience recording of this concert is out there, but it is not being shared at this point in time (recorder: B.C.).
