"Stretch Out And Wait" as well as occasionals "You've Got Everything Now" and "These Things Take Time" were not performed, but fan favourite "Reel Around The Fountain" was played.

Before "Shakespeare's Sister" which was about to be released as a single, Morrissey announced "This is our new single which nobody's heard...". Some fans in the audience kept requesting "Reel Around The Fountain", so when Morrissey said "This song is called 'Reel Around The Fountain'," many cheers were heard. Before "The Headmaster Ritual", Morrissey asked "Would anybody not say anything?". In "Still Ill" one line was changed to "Although I ended up with two lips". As an introduction to "Meat Is Murder", Morrissey enquired "What did you have for tea tonight? Tell the truth..." After the song he thanked the audience "Thank you very much, etc, etc..." Returning after a short break for the encore, Morrissey enquired "What should we do now?" and immediately replied "No!" to requests that were shouted.

An alternate recording of comparable quality has also been offered from certain bootleg traders, but this one is not available on the internet at this point in time (recorder: Soundsville's Paul).
