The Queen Is DeadAfter playing in California this show seemed uneventful, but the band were still very well received. There was very little change in the setlist. "The Boy With The Thorn In His Side" returned, taking the place of "William, It Was Really Nothing".
As the band entered stage Morrissey greeted the crowd with a simple "hello!". Then, after the pair of "The Queen Is Dead" and "Panic", he added "Thank you and hello!" His only banter for the rest of the evening, bar the occasional 'thank you', was the comment "Your kindness is motherly, thank you..." following "Cemetry Gates", and the introduction of the yet-to-be-released "Is It Really So Strange?" with the line "That song was called 'Is It Really So Strange?'..." When he thanked the crowd before the evening's final number, he told them "You've been very nice!".
