Do Your Best And Don't WorryThe first Maladjusted tour concert outside North America went down very well. Morrissey was in good spirits, very talkative, very playful and sexually teased the audience by sliding the microphone along his chest and crotch, and by swinging very sexily. The fans were generally very ecstatic. The security was tight, and only three fans made the stage, mostly during the encore.
There was no surprise in the setlist, it was very similar to what had been played in North America the previous few months. Morrissey only did the three singles off the most recent album "Maladjusted". The rarer "Paint A Vulgar Picture" and "Dagenham Dave" returned to the set.
Morrissey greeted the crowd with a "Hello sexy!" before going into the opening number. A few songs later, after making hand contact with some fans, he slipped his own hand down his trousers which made the audience go wild with excitement. Shortly after he teased the Danish by saying "It's nice to see so many sexy faces here tonight... Where are they from? Oslo?". Later again he said "Are you all going to work tomorrow? (crowd: no!) Oh, that's a shame". Other stage banter: "Feel free to say something".
At one point into the concert, Morrissey threw his tambourine into the audience. He let the fans sing the last chorus of "Now My Heart Is Full" because they knew all the words. After "Speedway" he said "You've been absolutely gorgeous... I'll never forget you". Then after encore "Shoplifters Of The World Unite" he said "I love you, I love you, I love you" before leaving the stage.
