10 November 1992|
State Palace Theater, New Orleans, LA
You're Gonna Need Someone On Your SideThe setlist was significantly scrambled, and "He Knows I'd Love To See Him" and "Everyday Is Like Sunday" were replaced by "Girl Least Likely To" and "Sister I'm A Poet". "Jack The Ripper" and "The National Front Disco" were the planned encores, but they were not performed.
Security in New Orleans was very tight, to the point where Morrissey was visibly upset. This might be the reason why he didn't return for an encore. There was a pit between the crowd and the stage, and fans who made it there were stopped by bouncers before they had a chance to make it on stage. At one point, Morrissey himself jumped into the pit to hug a fan. He would sometimes stop singing and give security a disapproving look.
Of course, Morrissey had to comment on the situation, more than once. After "Certain People I Know" he said "I must say that... although this isn't actually the most pleasant venue I've ever experienced (crowd cheers), in more ways than one, I just wonder whether we can actually overcome it (crowd cheers)... I wonder... I wonder...". Then after "Sister I'm A Poet" he sarcasticly added "I'm so glad that when he jumped on stage that... seven security jumped on him (Morrissey giggles), because he could have gotten completely out of control (crowd cheers)... I just wonder what they have to protect?". Beside the above, Morrissey's only other between song banter was a reply to a screaming fan: "I can hear you, I can hear you".
