Live Review

Morrissey

, Tivoli, Utrecht 28/10/2015 Morrissey strips






The anticipation for Morrissey's performance in Tivoli was high because it was four years ago since his last show in Holland. For me it was the first time I witnessed him perform. The place was sold out and the atmosphere electric. Before the concert we could watch an enjoyable compilation of clips with some of Morrissey's favourite music (incl. Ramones, New York Dolls but also Chris Andrews). The band took the stage, wearing 'Fuck Harvest' shirts (a beef with the record company), with a ferocious version of The Queen Is Dead. They only slowed down after five songs with Certain People I Know before Morrissey spoke some words to the audience. Despite his recent health problems Morrissey appeared in great shape while his political/social comments were as sharp as ever. Besides Harvest, the Royal house and the pharmaceutical industry got a beating. During Meat Is Murder (one of three Smiths-songs played tonight) a movie with shocking images of animal abuse and slaughter was shown. The songs from the diverse new album World Peace Is None of Your Business worked really well. Kiss Me A Lot and The Bullfighter Dies had more punch than on the cd while there was room for the Spanish guitar during Staircase at the University. Although the older Morrissey singles and Smith-songs are among the highlights, the new material works well too. The man's got so many great tunes to choose from. Overall a very convincing performance. Looking forward to his next visit.
