Gleason Theatre, Miami, FL
How Soon Is Now?The first of two consecutive dates in Miami went down well but was not among the most memorable shows of this tour. Morrissey was in top form and so was the band, but the crowd was rather tame. A few fans made it on stage. The setlist's length returned to 18 tracks. "Rubber Ring" was replaced by "Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me" while "Now My Heart Is Full" was replaced by rarely played b-sides "The Never Played Symphonies" and "Munich Air Disaster 1958".
Morrissey introduced "Bigmouth Strikes Again" by sarcastically saying that he has desperately tried to run from his past but hasn't been able to escape it. He referred to his latest album "You Are The Quarry" as "The Same Old S.O.S.", a line that would find its way two years later in his song "Life Is A Pigsty". He had his customary chit-chat with front row regular Julia. Amongst other things he told her "It can go either way..."
