Do Your Best And Don't WorryThis was an excellent show. The fact that this was the first non-seated concert of the tour might have helped establish a good atmosphere. Morrissey was in great spirits, but seemed to suffer from minor voice problems at times. He was playful, very theatrical and mimed lines, especially in "Nobody Loves Us". Security was relaxed so many fans managed to successfully make it on stage. Morrissey even helped and danced with a few of them. "London" replaced "Billy Budd" in the set list.
Morrissey kept pointing at the backdrop of Cornelius Carr during "The Boy Racer" (as a sidenote, Carr was fighting against a boxer named Collins the next night in Dublin and Morrissey attended that fight). The room was half-filled with David Bowie fans but the crowd still broke into chants of Morrissey's name after "Nobody Loves Us" and "London". Lighters were waved in the air during "We'll Let You Know". After the latter number Morrissey interrupted another chant of his name to ask "Could you... could you possibly...", but never managed to finish his question.
After "Spring-Heeled Jim" Morrissey answered yet another chant of his name with a repeated "Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!", delivered in a crescendo that sounded like he was having an orgasm. Then following "Now My Heart Is Full" he answered someone who was shouting his name with the question "Yeah? What's that? Is it me? (crowd: yes!) Are you sure? (crowd: yes!) No..." Before set closer "The National Front Disco" he said "Thank you for being so incredibly welcoming, it means a great deal and we hope we'll see you again soon..." At the end of the song he threw his sweat soaked shirt into the crowd.
