(Thanks to 'The Smiths Indeed' for providing the setlist)
There comes a point when coincidences can longer be considered coincidences. The MAIN theme to MorrisseysWorld.blogspot.com, is 'The Blue Rose Society', a society that was formed to mirror Oscar Wilde's 'Green Carnation', so when Morrissey walked on stage in Belgium, wearing a GREEN CARNATION for the first time ever in his life, could ANY sane person possibly claim that Morrissey wasn't giving a nod to 'Blue Rose', or was it YET ANOTHER (number 46) coincidence? The answer is of course NO, no sane person would deny that Morrissey was acknowledging BLUE ROSE, but on So-low, the sanest days ARE indeed mad, and already somebody has posted "I am waiting for someone to claim that the giant green broach or whatever was actually a blue rose." They don't EVEN know that it was a GREEN CARNATION! *Bangs head on wall*
I have tried to post on the So-low webshite this morning, to point out that NOBODY in their right mind could now dispute that Morrissey is MorrisseysWorld, but I have once again been blocked, with both David Tseng and Peter Finan, (the So-low owner and moderator), ensuring that their readers don't get to see ANYTHING that PROVES Morrissey is MorrisseysWorld. Only two days ago, Uncle Ernie (Finan) posted that So-low was a forum for complete freedom of speech, to reflect the real world and it's varying views, well it would appear that this is ONLY true if your view reflects THEIRS, or at least Finan's, as it is HE who calls all the shots, the other guy doesn't seem to do much, as he is busy playing with his Star Wars toys. Morrissey-solo.com represents dictatorial censorship at it's very worst, but then we already knew that didn't we.
One place that the So-low boys don't seem to have any control over is Wikipedia. I'm not sure how Wikipedia works, and who can update a page, but Morrissey's Wiki page has been updated with the following:

So, apart from the Green Carnation, what else is there to report from Liege? The setlist was a pretty similar 'Greatest Hits' set to that from the other legs of this tour. The only Youtube footage available so far, is of; 'Black Cloud', 'How Soon Is Now' and 'Everyday Is Like Sunday'. Needless to say that all three songs were performed brilliantly, and it is interesting to see Morrissey closely watching the new drummer (Eric Gardner) go through the drum routine at the end of HSIN (see here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5lCBPGaigc). I won't say too much about Eric, as without being disrespectful, drummers have never really interested me, I've always been fascinated by 'front men'....with the exception of Boz of course, he's in a class of his own, and a dress of his own last night, which appeared to be a NEW one. A new blue number, with some sort of coloured pattern cape.....lucky boy. The rest of the band wore matching t-shirts, although new boy Eric (who is a session musician from California, who previously played with Gnarls Barkley, and has his own band, named after his grandmother, called Dot Hacker) wore his own t-shirt, which tends to suggest he hasn't been inducted yet.
Tomorrow, the show reaches Rome, where Romina Ricci (@caterita2008) will be representing the 'Blue Rose'. On Sunday, MorisseysWorld diehard EARS (aka '@AIRRAID25 aka 'Emotional Air Raid) will be attending the concert in Genoa. Unfortunately she has tweeted this morning to say that her BLUE ROSE didn't arrive in the post, so it looks as if she won't be the first person to present Morrissey with that all illusive BLUE ROSE after all, unless her co-traveller (MW hater Rosy Mires) can find one and save her...now THAT would be irony!
