Rockefeller, Oslo, Norway
Do Your Best And Don't WorryThe setlist on this date started like the two previous shows, but "Dagenham Dave" and "Hold On To Your Friends" were replaced by "The More You Ignore Me The Closer I Get" and "London", thus giving the Norwegian Smiths fans a total of three Smiths-era songs. "The Teachers Are Afraid Of The Pupils" was scheduled to be performed as main set closer after "The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get", but it was skipped after Boz had a few words in Morrissey's ear, and the man decided to play the planned encore of "Shoplifters Of The World Unite" instead. So when the band came back for the encore, the fans were treated to the unexpected "London".
The concert was good but uneventful. Morrissey wasn't as playful or as talkative as he had been of late. Coming back for the encore, he had a signed banana which he threw into the audience as he said "Here, have a banana!". The fan who caught the banana was later featured in a book titled "Fans" by Fredrik Strage about extremely devoted fans.
