Scandinavia loves Morrissey and this gig didn't fail to prove it. The sound was good, the audience was very receptive and Morrissey was in great spirits, although slightly less talkative and looking a bit tired. He made many jokes, such as calling himself Mozzlo (a pun on Oslo). Typical of the 2006 tour, he tried to reach out to the local culture (read examples further down). Somewhere into the show he threw his shirt into the audience to be fought over by fans.

For the first time on the European leg of the Tour Of The Tormentors MMVI, there were changes to the setlist. "Reader Meet Author" was replaced by a returning "In The Future When All's Well", increasing the new album material by one track, and "I Have Forgiven Jesus" was replaced by "I Like You", the latter played for the first time in 2006.

At some point Morrissey announced that he was very happy because his newest album "Ringleader Of The Tormentors" was at number 1 in the Swedish midweek chart. He then teased the Norwegian fans by saying that the album was #375 in the Norwegian chart. Along his current fascination with the Eurovision Song Contest, he asked if anyone remembered Nicole and her song "Ein Bischen Frieden". The song was the winner of the contest in 1982. However Nicole isn't Norwegian, but German.

As was the tradition on this tour, Morrissey introduced his musicians halfway into the concert. He introduced Boz as the captain of the ship, Gary as #1 lieutenant, drummer Matt Walker as their tail gunner, Michael Farrell as their secret weapon and Jesse as "the Texas tornado, no I meant Texas torpedo". He then introduced himself as Morten Harket (the singer of Norwegian band A-Ha). Another tour tradition was the addition of a short intro from a well known local song to "Trouble Loves Me". Along the lines of his introduction as A-Ha's lead singer, in Oslo "Trouble Loves Me" was preceded by a few bar's of A-Ha's "Take On Me".
