mood: "We may be hidden with rags"

....I think some of you might be sympathetic to my predicament.

I am going to my first Mozzer show next week and...WHAT DO I WEAR???! It wouldn't be as big of a deal at any other show but...Moz is pretty sartorially-minded himself and I don't want to be appear out of place! If it helps, I am a 22 year old woman and I "haven't got a stitch to wear", more or less, though that can be remedied.

(Oh yeah, and I'm going with my boyfriend and my brother, both of whom are also concerned about this issue. Any clothing advice, male Moz fans?)

Thank you!! :P

  Im pretty sure everyone in this group is excited about the tour. And, I am too. I had to share a quick story about this years tour...well, its not really a story, but more of a happening, I guess.

I live in Macon, Georgia, USA. In other words, Boring Town, USA. Im originally from Florida. I can say Ive been a Moz fan since 1994 or so. Ive seen Moz, over 5 or 6 times since then, and Ive loved every show.

I was really bummed out this year because I couldnt make any of the shows close to me, due to my job and responsibilities. The closest to me was in Atlanta, and the Florida shows were during the week.

It so happens that my friend in New York had an extra ticket for the show up there next week. It also happens to be the weekend that I am travelling to Toronto, Canada for my Grandmothers 100th Birthday. So, with a little effort, I changed my travel plans to stay in NYC for one night, go to the show, and fly off the next day.

On top of that, the Atlanta and Florida shows were all cancelled...I couldnt believe it..could this be luck?

Anyways, so I am really excited about this, so I started to look at old post show comments on the morrissey solo site, and got extremly nostalgic as I read some of the coments from the shows I went to. I read about the BEST Morrissey show that I ever saw in 1997, Gainesville Florida. Just reading the comments was hilarious. Here is one of them:

Summary by Brian Newby

Morrissey played a very crisp set to the half-filled Center for the Performing Arts. The entire center had reserved seating, and the floor appeared to be sold out. The balconies, however, were sparsely filled. My seats were in the top balcony, but it quickly became evident during the Smoking Popes set that I would have to move because the seats didn’t allow for the intimacy you would expect from a small facility.

As a result, the crowd upstairs never got engaged. Downstairs, Morrissey entered after the rise of fog and the drum introduction from "The Operation." He opened with a strong performance of "Maladjusted." After the song, he took notice of the railing separating the floor seats and the stage by about 20 feet. "I think this looks ridiculous," he said as an invitation for us to jump the rail and move closer. He then broke into "Alma Matters," shaking hands and popping fists with many of us against the stage.

A handful — 11, I think — of fans jumped to stage, touched Morrissey, and then cooperatively left with security off the stage. I was the last to jump — right before the encore on the right side — but quickly leaped back onto the floor when I realized that Morrissey was coming back in from the left. Security, overall, was protective, but friendly and not overbearing, and the crowd was particularly civil.

Morrissey’s band played intensely, stayed put for the most part, and seemed to have trouble keeping up with Morrissey’s energy level. He was on, and sang very powerfully, especially during "Spring-Heeled Jim". As in other shows, he changed the lyrics in "Paint a Vulgar Picture" to "MTV, MTV, MTV...kiss their ass!," and later replaced the word you with I when singing, "I just haven’t earned it yet, baby." He was decked in a black shirt and black pants or jeans and he remained clothed (unusual, it seems, based on recent reports from other cities).

He came on stage around 9:20 and sang for about an hour. The Smoking Popes played for about 40 minutes and sounded good as well, but frankly, few cared. Many waited for Morrissey with flowers and one person attended as a dead ringer for Morrissey from the "Strangeways" era. I bought a T-shirt, grey with green "Morrissey" and "Swimming" printed for $22 -- the person selling them said this shirt started as a crew shirt and they began selling it. Other shirts displaying photos on them and city listings were also available, and they also sold the new Smoking Popes CD.

Personally, I have waited 13 years to see Morrissey after many attempts to see him. I was in Orlando on business and therefore missed his show in Kansas City (my hometown) and drove from Orlando to see him in Gainesville. My wife (much less of a Morrissey fan) attended with me, encouraged me to move to the stage, and even slapped skin with Mozzer herself (twice). It was a great night and I am envious of those of you who will see him perform in the weeks ahead.



That show was great! The set list:
Maladjusted / Alma Matters / Billy Budd / The Boy Racer / Why Don't You Find Out For Yourself / Ambitious Outsiders / Speedway / Reader Meet Author / Roy's Keen / Spring-Heeled Jim / Paint A Vulgar Picture / Now My Heart Is Full / Satan Rejected My Soul // Shoplifters Of The World Unite

Anyways, I hope everyone gets to see him this year, and if you have already, I hope you had a great time!

Does anyone have Morrissey's latest song titled "All You Need is Me"?
It's such a great song and I can't find it anywhere.
Morrissey played it recently on Last Call with Carson Daly. 
Much love!

Did anyone catch the Carson Daily episode last night with Morrissey? 
He played a new song I hadn't heard yet.
Does anyone have it?  It was really good.
