Good indeed, but not fantastic
The concert was good, but not fantastic. I liked the band and the quite hard and noisy "wall of sound". I liked how the concert began ("First of the gang to die", really sharp and noisy guitars) and the new single "You have killed me" will stand the test of time. And most naturally: to hear the man himself sing songs like "Girlfriend in a coma", "Last night I dreamt that somebody loved me" -- but also "Irish blood English heart" -- underlines why Morrissey is one of the greatest.
However, the concert was very short, just as the other two times when I have seen him live (Solnahallen and Fryshuset). And I was hoping he would play "Come back to Camden", anything from "Vauxhall and I", and my favorite song with The Smiths: "There is a light that never goes out". None of those wishes came true, but I am not surprised since that is part of the charm with Morrissey. It is not three and a half hours with Bruce, ending up with "Twist and shout". But yesterday there was a gap between the years with The Smiths, and the two latest records (i.e. the whole Morrissey-period from 1988 to 1994 was missing). That was a shame.
Anyway, I am glad I went, and in the crowd loads of fellow journalists could be seen. I wonder what song a conservative columnist listens to before going to a Moz-concert. "Margaret On The Guillotine"?
