29 September 1991|
Point Depot, Dublin, Ireland
Angel, Angel, Down We Go TogetherAfter a few weeks' break recovering from the illness responsible for the cancellation of the last Australian dates, Morrissey was back in form and ready to tackle a second British leg (plus this date in Ireland) promoting the "Kill Uncle" album. This new leg started in the same city where the tour was launched earlier in the year, in Dublin, Ireland. This gig didn't get very good reviews, it wasn't the highlight of the tour.
The newly released "My Love Life" made its live debut, and that single's b-side "I've Changed My Plea To Guilty" was also reintroduced into the set. It had only been played on a few select occasions before this. "Driving Your Girlfriend Home" was also performed here in front of a live audience for the first time. Part-timers from the previous leg such as "Cosmic Dancer", "Trash", "Will Never Marry", "There's A Place In Hell For Me And My Friends", "Pregnant For The Last Time" were dropped. These would only be played again once or twice before the end of the year, and then never again.
At the end of "Interesting Drug", the band went straight away into "Mute Witness". This pairing would become standard on this leg of the Kill Uncle tour. After the latter song, Morrissey said "You might have heard recently that I've been very ill... so err, you'll be very pleased to know that I'm still ill". Some fans might have thought that this was going to serve as an introduction to the Smiths' song "Still Ill", but it wasn't the case. Morrissey would not touch the Smiths repertoire until 1995, and not do "Still Ill" until 2006. After "My Love Life", which was actually released as a single that very week, Morrissey started to say "That song was called 'My Love Life', and err..." and typically, didn't finish.
Standard concert closer "Disappointed" was moved up to the position of main set closer. With the exception of the very first dates earlier in the year, Morrissey only did one encore of two songs on the Kill Uncle tour. But in Dublin the fans were given three songs over two encores. Returning to the stage for the first of these, Morrissey exclaimed "It's nice to be back home" before going into current single b-side "I've Changed My Plea To Guilty". That number was followed by "That's Entertainment", then after a second break, "The Last Of The Famous International Playboys" ended the set.
