I went to see Morrissey last night at Hammerstein. I can’t believe I almost didn’t go! Brenda had extra tickets so me, Robyn, Alison, Francis and his wife snatched them up. I met Alison and Robyn earlier for dinner at The Dish in Chelsea and then got to the venue a little after 8. I didn’t care much for the opener, Kristeen Young. Moz came on at 9 and played for an hour and 40 minutes!! Here’s the setlist I got via brooklynvegan:
Stop Me If You Think You’ve Heard This One Before
All You Need Is Me
Irish Blood, English Heart
The Boy With The Thorn In His Side
I’m Throwing My Arms Around Paris
That’s How People Grow Up
Jack The Ripper
One Day Goodbye Will Be Farewell
Sister, I’m A Poet
Stretch Out And Wait
The World Is Full Of Crashing Bores
Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want
Why Don’t You Find Out For Yourself?
Death Of A Disco Dancer
Dear God, Please Help Me
How Soon Is Now?
First Of The Gang To Die
I was so excited that he played Sister I’m a poet and Why Don’t You Find Out For Yourself? 2 of my fave Moz songs. The show was awesome! I didn’t bother trying to sneak a camera in so I thought I’d mark the event by taking a picture of Sienna in my old concert shirts. I wasn’t crazy about the shirts last night plus they were $35!!
the quintessential Moz look
the “mom these shirts smell like the 90′s!” look
