On time and in classic Morrissey fashion, the band made their way to the front of the stage wearing “F**K “Trump” shirts and gesturing at the capacity crowd.
Morrissey appeared humbled by the crowds response after the opening song by shouting “Please, it wasn’t that good”, it was it really was “that good”.
His voice and on stage bravado were fully intact. The diversity of his setlist made the show unique from his early hits “Everyday is Like Sunday”, “Ouija Board, Ouija Board” and “How Soon is Now” to recent tracks like “First of the Gang to Die” and “The World is Full of Crashing Bores”. There was something for everyone, new and old.
The 70 plus minute set ended with Morrissey’s performing a cover of the Ramones “Judy is a Punk”, which had the crowd on their feet and singing along as they had for most of the evening. Saturday nights performance at The Majestic Theater proved that a true artist, will always find a way to reward those that stand by them. No matter what others think or say. Thanks Moz!
