This concert was another energetic one. The fans were ecstatic, calling Morrissey's name, shouting compliments and singing along with the lyrics. Morrissey was clearly enjoying himself. He was again very theatrical in his performance but was generally not very talkative. Most of his banter consisted of asking "yes?" when a fan shouted a question or trying his hand at Japanese by thanking them with "arigato". There was quite a lot of stage climbing and diving.

There was only one change in the setlist. "We'll Let You Know" was replaced by "The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get" which hadn't been performed since the Boxers tour.

Morrissey greeted his Japanese fans with "Hello again!" before going into the first number. As he usually did in the UK before this, he threw a signed tambourine into the audience after being done with it. After "The Teachers Are Afraid Of The Pupils", to fans shouting "Come on", he asked and teased "Come on? Come on what? What do you mean 'come on'? C'mon c'mon c'mon!". During the usual noisy ending of "The National Front Disco", Morrissey tied his jacket around his waist and just stood there with his face raised to the ceiling. After the last encore, he threw his shirt into the crowd and said "Sayonara", which is goodbye in Japanese, before exiting stage.


A fair recording of the full concert is circulated among collectors of bootlegs on tapes and compact discs, as well as on the internet.
