4 May 1991|
Music Hall, Koln (Cologne), Germany
Interesting DrugThis was an excellent but shorter concert because "I've Changed My Plea To Guilty" was dropped from the setlist. Morrissey wasn't very loquacious in front of foreign crowds. He was certainly aware of it and his apology about it was this date's main banter: "I wish I could say something witty in German, but I can't..." He also thanked the fans for being "charming". The fans were very receptive, they broke into chants of Morrissey's name on many occasions.
After "Sing Your Life" Morrissey said "Thank you you're... verrrrry kind... as you know..." Soon after he introduced the yet-to-be-released "Pregnant For The Last Time" with: "This is a new song, called... ppfffftt... 'Pregnant For The Last Time'." "Piccadilly Palare" segued for the first time into the cover of the New York Dolls' "Trash" the way it would from this date well into the middle of the Kill Uncle tour. At the end of the concert, Morrissey removed the shirt he was wearing and threw it into the audience before exiting.
An audience recording of the full gig is also circulated on VHS and DVD bootlegs, albeit limitedly. This recording can also be found on the internet on torrent sites. The audio from this video recording is also circulated on the internet.
