Day 1125 - Geographically Happy

Last night's concert in Rome once again looked to have been very special, but as I wasn't there, I shall instead post the words of BRS members Romoina and EARS, who were there. The set list was EXACTLY the same as in Barcelona, including the songs being in the same order, which is rare.

ROMINA'S REVIEW:

Oh Rat, just wrote my comment and this silly pc ate it, no matter, try again! What a night Ratty dear, what a night! 

I arrived around six and there was a quite long queue yet! Yes, Morrissey arrived with a dark Mercedes and a woman told me that few minutes before him she saw Julia arriving all alone. Doing the queue I chatted with many funny people, there was a speker of Radio Popolare, two very young sisters who told me their parents were huge Smiths fans, but we love Morrissey, they remarked me with a smile. Very cute. 

It was'nt a special theatre, people who know this things better than me were'nt happy for the location, but we were all agree about the fact that Morrissey could sing everywhere. In a few minutes the venue was full, it was quite like in a bus of the centre of the city.

 Interesting pre gig video, with Ramones, Dolls and at the end of Charles Aznavour song there was an applause. Ding Dong, Ding Dong and the screen felt down the floor as a Deus ex machina in a Greek Tragedy: 

The Queen is Dead: simply stunning! The bullfighter and Kiss me a lot and all the people singing along, i got the impression the people knowing the wors of the new songs better than ever! For the first time I listened to Certain People alive, marvellous! 

Befor Earth he said :" Listen to what I have to say to you..." wonderful. How soon is now sounded better than ever and during World Peace everybody sang very loud, at the end of the song Gustavo sang the refrain in spanish with his lovely voice, I got a crush for Gustavo, he's special. Boz looks slimmer and Jesse was very seroius, professional but he did'nt smlile at all, I shouted:"Bravo Jesse!", but i don't know if he listened to me. 

Paris lovely as always and when he sang Neil Cassady the theatre was exploding, expecialy during the refrain: "Victims or life adventurers..." During Trouble, terrific more than ever, i saw the blue rose flying on my left, on Monday florists are closed in Rome, maybe it was a plastic one, I had the improssion Morrissey was trying to grab it, but it was no possible, we were very squeezed. 

Istanbul sounded fantastic, but with Kick the Bride Morrissey reached his best. It was'nt simply a song, was a total drama performance, his face, his mimical gesture, every wrinkle communucating a feeling, o please Hollywood's Actors with your faces blocked by botox, learn something by Morrissey! 

To Give, Meat is Murder and Speedway very impressive, during the pause of Speedway he repeted the word nausea three times, i don't know, maybe a reference to Sartre. I'm not a Man and everybody jumping like little children with a jumping rope, yes no men, only like children when Moz singing! 

During Asleep some tears dropped down my face, happiness and sadness at the same time, all it is possible with Morrissey singing. Everyday is like Sunday for encore, he changed his shirt with a red one with sunflowers, I supposed it was an old shirt from Smyths era, maybe because it was quite like a female blouse, the shirt felt down my face and I was assalted by a lot of people! Thanks, thanks and forever thanks to the security who saved me, the chief trimmed the shirt in a lot of very small pieces and one of them is here with me, for my eternal pleasure and privilege. Thank you Morrissey!

ROMINA'S SHIRT PIECE.... SHE MUST BITE HER NAILS!!!!


EARS REVIEW:

Romina you are a star. This is a great review. Thank you.

Oh the rose was not plastic!


A cracking night last night. Morrissey arrived in a sleek black Merc about 6.30. It happened in a flash. Moz I think was wearing a black jacket he was gazing straight ahead.

I don't know if it has shown in any pics yet, but the finger lingerie has returned!


Morrissey wore a red shirt with sunfowers on it for the encore. I saw a lovely boquet of sunflowers go back stage before the show began.

I got pushed over during shirt toss, but imagine my excitement when I thought I'd got a piece.....it was a bit of red paper cup!!!


The show was stunning. Moz appeared in good spirits & was quite chatty.

I never dreamt I would hear Trouble live, it was very emotional. I will never forget it.

Asleep was so moving, I listened with eyes full of tears.

EARS ROSE... WHICH WILL ONCE AGAIN TRAVEL TO ATLANTICO THIS EVENING

Some video footage is slowly starting to emerge, and it would appear that Morrissey got very close to EARS's blue rose, but decided not to take it. Perhaps he will take it this evening, but who knows.

Members of the BRS will also be l'oo'king and listening to see if Girl Least Likely To is sung tonight in Rome, as A*f*B****n predicted that it would be sung within the first five shows. As Rosy Mires has already been quick to point out, even if GLLT is sung tonight, it will merely be a coincidence, as the song was in the set in the US. And what is more, A*f has already been proven to be a fraud, because he predicted that Staircase at the University would be the opening song in Lisbon, and that didn't happen, in fact, Staircase hasn't yet been sung at all! I personally am NOT expecting to see GLLT on tonight's setlist.

Staircase isn't the only song from WPINOYB not to have been sung live yet; neither have Smiler With Knife, Mountjoy or Oboe Concerto. From the bonus cd, One of Our Own has been sung just once, whilst none of the other five songs have so far made it onto the European setlist.

All is quiet in MorrisseysWorld, although Astraea has made the odd brief appearance over the past few days, mainly to post a few photos of Brigitte, Catherine, Marilyn etc, and also to re-tweet some Oscar & Nietzsche quotes, which I have to admit, go way over my head.

I have nothing else to add today, other than to mention that Morrissey sung The Bullfighter Dies on Italian TV on Sunday night whilst wearing what looked to be a sailor's jacket, which had a red and blue button on each sleeve, leading some people to comment that they could have been a nod to Dr Jacoby's glasses in Twin Peaks.

    1. Thank you Heather. I forgot to mention there was a lovely bit of chanting Morrissey's name just before the encore.

      I must add the music before the videos started was great. I loved the piano at the begining.

    2. And here is that chanting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JbvVldvIGMQ

  2. I highly doubt Girl Least Likely To will be played either, not after the Staircase debacle. I now regard everything with high suspicion. I used to be so trusting. Anyway, I doubt anything Alf said will happen. But, who knows?

    1. Manc, you can't just keep posting things and then deleting them. You have been quick to post many things about me that you haven't been so quick to get rid of. Here is a reminder of what you wrote:

      "so happy for the three birds (sorry I'm from Manchester) I know that were there last night, good luck to the girls going tonight and such a shame Rosy cant stay another night.. it is actually quite good fun trawling for tweets etc as the show gets underway.. all is not quite as happy as it should be in camp moz right now, but I hope that gets sorted out soon"

      Presumably you are regretting posting that "all is not quite as happy as it should be in camp moz right now"? Perhaps you'd like to elaborate?

  4. Thank you for the reviews.it makes me even more exited to see Moz next week.

  5. Hello Ratty dear, I can't go to the concert this evening because I'm busy with my family, two evening of freedom are no possible for me. I'm happy for Air and for all the people who will enjoy a great show. I hope the Blue Rose will be fullfilled. Thanks for posting my review, Forza Air and Viva Morrissey! P.S. I saw you posted the pic of Missouri, he's funny! The host of the show got a daughter and she is in the same school of my daughter, all funny people Yesterday evening they were outside the show for a report, but I just discovered it on twitter today. Many thanks again. Ciao!

  6. Cheers for the Rome footage (so far) and the chart Ratster, just trawling through the footage now. Vodka in hand.
    Thank you EARS & Romina for the reviews. Good luck with the rose tonight EARS. Well done on your shirt trophy Romina!

  7. Another wonderful night. I threw my rather sad looking rose during the encore. It hit the side of the stage & fell in the pit. I never was a very good shot!

    Moz mentioned Rita Pavone & heart.
    Pause in Speedway not sure of first part but ended with some La La La's.

    Sorry you couldn't make it Romina.
    I have lost my voice & have gone rather deaf but my heart is full.
    Heartfelt thanks to Morrissey for such special & memorable shows.

    Will post more when home.

  8. Thanks to EARS and Romina for their lovely reviews. I am happy you both got to see Moz. :-)

  9. Thank you Romina and EARS for the wonderful reviews. It sounds as if you had a really good time. Thank you, Mr Ratty, for keeping your blog going, so that we may get reviews like these, and thank you for the Twitterdilly Chart. I appreciate all the time you put into this site. Always liked the Twit Chart, but sometimes wonder where you find some of the songs you list. With David Lynch talking about new Twin Peaks episodes, I imagine you'll have some new ones to list shortly, and more to ponder over on what may pertain to MW. Good luck to all who are going to future concerts. I do hope you all have a great time.
