I Know It's Gonna Happen SomedayThis was a small and intimate show. Morrissey and Th'Lads looked like they were having a great time. Morrissey was particularly talkative, flirting with the crowd in his usual manner. At one point, he sang to a handicapped woman in the aisle. The crowd was overall quite mellow and very few invasions were attempted. One person ran across the stage and tackled Morrissey hard. He was quickly manhandled off stage.
There was no change in the setlist. At the end of "Such A Little Thing Makes Such A Big Difference", instead of going into the "Leave me alone I was only singing" part, the band switched to "Girl Least Likely To". This was only one of three times ever that these two songs segued one into the other.
Morrissey started the show by greeting the audience with a shout of "Hello again!" before the band launched into recently promoted set opener "I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday". After "We'll Let You Know" the singer started to say "I found that err..." but in true Morrissey fashion, he didn't finish his line. He shook maracas and eventually threw into the audience early into the following song, "You're The One For Me, Fatty". Actually, over the length of the show, he would also throw a tambourine, a sunflower and his shirt into the crowd. After "You're The One For Me, Fatty" he tried once more to say something and was again unable to finish his line: "I was just gonna say before that errm..." The same happened again after "Certain People I Know".
Following "Girl Least Likely To" Morrissey asked someone in the audience "What do you say? Oh yes..." His most memorable banter of the evening was delivered as an introduction to "Seasick, Yet Still Docked": "Somebody has just requested that I sing 'Achy Breaky Heart' and I must confess that I really think I should... so I will..." The new-ish set closer "November Spawned A Monster" was extended with a long instrumental feedback outro during which Morrissey left the stage.
