Savoy, Cork, Ireland
Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I WantThe setlist given above might be incomplete. It is possible that the Smiths played longer than that because they were very well received by the Cork audience.
After "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now", Morrissey introduced the following song with the line "This is a new song which you don't know, called 'Rusholme Ruffians'... (then perhaps to someone in the audience) You know it, nobody else does". The audience might have been subdued during the song's performance, or perhaps it was only Morrissey's usual self-depreciation, but the man said after that "You don't really like it, do you?". He then went on to introduce "How Soon Is Now?" with the question "What's the meaning of this song?"
"I Want The One I Can't Have" was later introduced as "...our new single". Of course in time those plans would change in favour of a re-release of the fan-favourite b-side "How Soon Is Now?" as a single a-side.
