I'm guessing if there was anything and I mean anything at all record breaking about them it would have already been mentioned on Morrissey Central... BTW that's OK, they were good shows... it doesn't have to be "record breaking" to be valuable.
For me, a lot of it came down to setlist choices. The playing to death of songs like Paris, Munich, Ganglord, and the exclusion of much stronger material from throughout his career. 2017 was definitely one of the worst shows I attended (way too much LIHS), but 2018 & 2019 were much better/fun...
Agree with @This Charming Bowie - I love both versions of this song equally. The KU version was a fitting and moving end to the album... but I was blown away by the live version and the lyrical change @notawoman mentioned. Happy to have both versions. 7/10.
I seem to equate the b-sides from this era as fairly equal in terms of quality ... songs like this one, Pashernate Love and Let The Right One Slip In. I liked them at the time but not much to revisit now. 6/10.
Yeah, that's all I could find:
Seems like the music press were a lot more interested in covering The Simpsons episode and Morrissey's reaction to it.
I don't think it's that common anymore to play unreleased songs. When I saw him in November 2018, he didn't play anything from California Son. When I saw him in October 2019, he didn't play anything from IANADOAC... so actually not surprised that we didn't get any new songs. As far as the...
Basically same exact comments for this as "Sunny." (Southpaw Grammer aside) From an era where Morrissey was very much in top form and was working with great collaborators. The songs just seemed to pour out effortlessly. 8/10.
