Victoria Hall, Hanley
Angel, Angel, Down We Go TogetherThis concert turned out to be much better than the previous one. The fans were very welcoming and Morrissey, although not at his most talkative, still gave an excellent performance. There was no change in the setlist. The fans were again treated to three songs over two encores, just like in Dublin two days earlier. Morrissey would go back to the usual two-song encore soon after this.
Newest single "My Love Life" was introduced by Morrissey in his typical self-depreciatory manner with the words "This song is called 'My Love Life'... which you probably even haven't heard but it's a naturally very short song..." Following "Asian Rut" he asked "Can I just make a very small personal request? (crowd cheers timidly) Yes? Well, Spencer is very ill so, if you could give him a hearty cheer..." to which the audience complied. To something shouted to him after "King Leer" Morrissey answered "Oh yes!".
When he returned to the stage for the first encore, Morrissey said "Thank you, well, lovely, lovely!" before going into a beautiful performance of "I've Changed My Plea To Guilty". This was followed by a rocking rendition of "That's Entertainment" which ended in a noisy jam as it usually did at the time.
