The final date of the first leg of the Maladjusted tour was a success.
Morrissey seemed to be in an excellent mood, although perhaps slightly less
talkative than he generally was at that point in time. There was a very large
pit between the barrier and the stage making it very difficult for fans to
reach their idol. Despite incentives from the man (like asking the fans to
"come closer"), it was barely possible to even just touch Morrissey's hand
when he extended it over the pit. But that changed during the encore (read
further).
There were a few changes in the setlist. Standard intro "Maladjusted" as well
as "Hold On To Your Friends" and "The Teachers Are Afraid Of The Pupils" were
replaced by part-timers "Nobody Loves Us", "Ambitious Outsiders" and "Wide To
Receive". This would actually be the latter song's last performance. When
Morrissey would resume the tour after a break of 10 days, "Wide To Receive"
would be permanently dropped from the set.
"The Boy Racer" was moved back to the position of set opener where it would
find itself more and more as the tour progressed. After its performance
Morrissey greeted the audience with "It's nice to be home!". A few songs later,
after "Billy Budd" he added "It's very nice to be back in this very sane city".
Besides the usual changes in "Nobody Loves Us", Morrissey changed a line to
"I'm useless, I'm shiftless, and jobless, but I'm all yours". Before "Roy's
Keen" he said "God bless you... Boz... Roy, Roy, Roy, Roy, Roy..." then
invited the fans to "...come closer".
In "Speedway" Morrissey changed the words "loving mouth" to "ugly mouth",
something common in performances of that song on the 1995 tours, but not so
common on this one. After "Ambitious Outsiders", Morrissey shouted "Yes! Yes!
Yes! YES! YES! YES!", perhaps half-exasperated by many song requests shouted
by members of the audience. Besides all the usual changes in "Paint A Vulgar
Picture", Morrissey also sang "I just haven't earned it yet, baby" and "what
makes most people feel happy still leads me headlong into harm".
When Morrissey returned to the stage after a short break to perform the
encore, he first said "I'd just like to say thanks for all the support... it
means a great deal..." before starting "Shoplifters Of The World Unite".
However he didn't get to finish the song as there was a rush of fans who
successfully managed to climb over the barrier and make it on stage. Morrissey
had to be escorted off by security guards and his musicians just stopped
playing and followed him. Obviously the stage crashers were booed by the rest
of the audience for interrupting the concert. Chances are "Shoplifters Of The
World Unite" was the final planned song that night, but it was rumoured that
"The Queen Is Dead" was supposed to be played as a second encore. There were
also rumours that Morrissey was injured in the melée, but it wasn't the case.
BOOTLEGS
A fair audience recording of the full set is circulated on bootlegs and on
the internet.

Looking forward to this - I'm mainly trying to acquire all the material from the 2006 tour so this will be my first Maladjusted show. I'll seed for a while! Looking forward to it.

Thanks a lot!
Does anybody happen to the S.F. shows from Oct 7-8? After near misses during the other tours, they were my first Moz shows and I'd love to hear them again...

Thank you David & elmirasusanna! I attended this show so it's wonderful to get to hear it again! Morrissey looked strange that night. It was as though he'd gone shopping at 'The Gap' - kakhi pants and a white oxford button down. Very odd. He was also the most overweight I've ever seen him. Still a great performance as always.

DavidA,
I just downloaded a song from this show (The more you ignore me). I don't want to be a piss-off but I converted it in wave standard and made a screenshot... and to me it seems to be (extremely) lossy. A big Db fall in the 8KHz range and almost nothing above 10KHz ??!!
I may be wrong though (I double checked, but who knows?). Really, no offense intended, and thank you again for all your great posts, but may be worth checking this one.
Cheers

I checked it a couple of times before I posted it and noticed the fall off. TAU reports most as MPEG but then decides the complete CD is CDDA. I looked at the wave form and although it dropped off, it didn't drop off in the way that MP3 does (as far as I can tell). My guess is that whoever original captured it didn't do a good job of capturing all the frequencies.

I'm not an expert but I've never seen such a screenshot. I put different types below to compare with...
The thing that is sure is that a broad range of frequencies have been swept out of the recording.
