The setlist was the same as on the previous night in Brighton. The show was slightly better however. The venue was big and impersonal, but it was closer to being sold out than the previous big and impersonal venues visited earlier on this leg, so the experience was better for most of the audience. The stage was a good distance from the front rows, so no one made it on stage. The crowd was very wild and energetic. Morrissey was faultless but looked a bit tired and very emotional. He wore his priest outfit for the first few songs and later changed into various shirts. One of them ended up in the audience after being used to wipe the sweat off his body and down his trousers.
After the usual "Imperfect List" song announcing the beginning of the concert, Morrissey and his musicians entered stage, walked up to the front and took a bow in a line, arms over shoulders. Morrissey then started by asking "Why do you come here?" (a line from his song "Suedehead") before going into the first number, "How Soon Is Now?". After that he made a reference to "Why do you smile when you think about Earls Court", a line from "Piccadilly Palare" when he said "Yes, I'm smiling because I'm here... what that means I don't know..." During "November Spawned A Monster" someone tried and failed to make it on stage. His efforts were acknowledged by Morrissey who told him "God bless you".
"Don't Make Fun Of Daddy's Voice" was introduced with "That song is called 'Don't Make Fun Of Daddy's Voice', which speaks for itself really... it could be you..." Before the Smiths-era "Bigmouth Strikes Again", Morrissey announced "Yes the past is a strange place..." In the song he made a few lyric changes to "Sweetness I wasn't joking when I said I'd like to smash every tooth in your head" and "As the flames rose to her roman nose and her iPod started to melt". He made his first comment about Christmas before "Redondo Beach" when mentioning how he found "Christmas very difficult". After the song he jokingly said "That was a song made famous by Pat Benetar... or was it Patti Smith?"
Morrissey introduced his band after "Let Me Kiss You": "I think as a band you'll agree that they're not so bad... The maestro, Boz Boorer... the true and only, Gary Day... the magnificent Deano... a man with 8 new stitches in his head, Jesse Tobias..." and then went on to introduce keyboard player Mike V Farrell. Before "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out", Morrissey made another reference to the past: "In my life I was once associated with three incredibly miserable people... but I think you'll agree that some decent songs survived..." This song was usually a highlight of the evening when played earlier in the year as an encore, but on this leg it was moved up in the middle of the set and played much slower, to many fans' disappointment.
Before "The More You Ignore Me The Closer I Get", Morrissey returned to the subject of Christmas: "Do you think you'll actually survive Christmas?" He then mentioned his Christmas single, "I Have Forgiven Jesus" released that week: "This week we have released a charity single... that charity is me... and I know it isn't mutual but I have forgiven Jesus." The next song was introduced with "We got rid of Blunkett, now let's get rid of Blair... 'The World Is Full Of Crashing Bores'." He also said that that song was the Christmas single in Idaho. He returned to the subject of Christmas one final time before "Shoplifters Of The World Unite": "Have you finished your Christmas shoplifting yet?".
Before "Irish Blood, English Heart", Morrissey said for some unknown reason "So you see I can't be wrong about everything". At some point during the show, when fans chanted his name, Morrissey said "It's a beautiful name, but just think where it's been...". He was also angered for a brief time about other comments coming from the audience. At some point he replied to someone "I'm S-I-Q-U-E, sick!" Towards the end of the show, he told the crowd they were a dream audience for an old sea-dog like him.
Morrissey and his band returned to the stage for the encore in the same fashion they did at the beginning of the show. They walked to the front and bowed. Morrissey then went to his microphone and gave the audience another one of those lines that hinted at something, but nothing precise: "There are goodbyes and there are farewells... this is farewell..." He also asked "Please don't forget me, I love you". Fans in the front rows could see that he was very emotional while saying these words and that his eyes were filling up with tears.

This concert was recorded and released in full in March/April 2005 as the "Live From Earls Court" live album.
Two different audience recordings of this whole concert are circulated on bootleg DVDs, one with footage of the stage, and the other with footage of the video screen.

greetings alberto!
well not sure about nero as I use k3b for all my burning purposes. seems a lot of people have problems with Nero when burning the dvd's I seed.
If you using windows try burning the dvd using "TMPGEnc DVD Author".
that should work. :-)
Cheers!
