There was no surprise in the setlist which was the same here as for the past few shows. Morrissey gave a very intense performance of "I Want The One I Can't Have", to the point where he growled the words for a few lines. He actually growled and rolled his 'R's more than usual throughout this concert, in many other songs. After "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" he asked "If I may ask just one thing... if the person next to you spits, or throws anything, please, bottle them!" After "Rusholme Ruffians", he just shouted "Shut up!". After "What She Said", he said "Thank you, you're incredibly kind..."

The new song "London" which had yet to be released, was introduced with "This is a new song, which we hope you'll like... nobody else does... it's called... 'London'." After the song Morrissey replied to someone in the audience "We don't do 'Hand In Glove' anymore..." James Maker, who danced on stage with the Smiths for their first two gigs, joined Morrissey on stage to sing a few lines of "Bigmouth Strikes Again". His new band Raymonde were starting to get attention and they opened for the Smiths on most dates of this tour.

Tickets were 6.50.
