For the first concert of their first North American tour, the Smiths adopted more or less the same setlist as on the British leg from two-three months earlier. All the regulars were played except for "Barbarism Begins At Home". "This Charming Man" which had been skipped in Britain and reinstated for earlier Italian and Spanish dates was also played for the North Americans. "Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want" was the other notable addition to the setlist.
