3 October 1991|
National Hall, Kilburn
Angel, Angel, Down We Go TogetherThis concert was a success despite an apparently tame audience. Morrissey was in great spirits and much more talkative than usual. The setlist remained essentially the same except for "The Last Of The Famous International Playboys" which was listed as a second encore, but dropped, and "November Spawned A Monster" which was moved up.
After "Piccadilly Palare", as the audience was shouting his name, Morrissey teasingly replied by asking "Who? Me?". Newest single "My Love Life" was introduced with the words "This song err... this song is called 'My Love Life'." After "The Loop", Morrissey teased the audience again, this time addressing their apparent lack of enthusiasm: "So you're tired now... (crowd: NO!) Really? (crowd: NO!) Really?" During "King Leer" he was handed a book or fanzine. He danced with it in his hand for the remainder of the song, then put it down on the drum rise. After "Everyday Is Like Sunday" he started "Well... Hmm? Hmm? Hmm?" but never finished.
Morrissey ended newly-appointed standard main set closer "Disappointed" by repeating "Ah! Ah! Oh! Oh!" instead of singing "No I've changed my mind again" as he does in the studio version or "yes! yes! yes! yes! yes! yes! yes!" as he usually sings in live performances. Following that song and a short break backstage, Morrissey and his bandmates returned to the stage for the first of two planned encores. Before the first song, "I've Changed My Plea To Guilty", Morrissey said "This is where you can all go (retching noise) or...". "The Last Of The Famous International Playboys" was planned as a third song/second encore, but Morrissey and the band never returned to the stage to perform it. The reason for this might have been an apparent lack of enthusiasm from the audience.
A fair quality audience audio recording is also available on bootleg cds and digital format on the internet. It is clearly different to the audio from the video recording.
