5 July 1991|
Kingswood Music Theatre, Toronto, Canada
Interesting DrugThis concert went down really well as is usually the case in Toronto where Morrissey has a huge following. It supposedly was one of the man's favourite shows of the tour. Morrissey growled in many songs and teased the audience at times with strange noises from his mouth. There was a slight lack of enthusiasm from the audience at first, and very few attempts to climb on stage, which prompted Morrissey to say "shyness is nice" before "November Spawned A Monster". Morrissey wasn't very talkative. Besides the latter comment, the only other banter from him consisted of his greeting before the first song.
The setlist remained basically the same as in Boston and was played in the same order. However "The Loop" which had just seen its live debut was already replaced by another live debut, "Yes I Am Blind". The latter occupied the same position in the setlist, as the first song in the encore. "The Loop" would only return to the setlist on the upcoming UK leg of the tour.
Besides all the usual lyrical changes in "Everyday Is Like Sunday" (see here), Morrissey sang "share some greased tea with him" while pointing at a fan who held a banner saying "share some greased tea with me". Fans sang along with Morrissey in "Will Never Marry". During the first verse, as they were into the line "I will live my life as I will undoubtedly die..." together, Morrissey smooched instead of ending with "...alone".
The debuting "Yes I Am Blind" was quite different to the studio version. Morrissey didn't sing the two occurrences of "God come down if you're really there, well you're the one who claims to care". Instead the song stopped and restarted. He also sang "Little lamb on a hill, run fast if you will". In "Disappointed" he sang "Your friends would rather die than have to sleep with you" in addition to the usual changes.
