This concert was very wild, on stage and in the crowd where many seats were broken by the actions of the rowdy audience. Fans climbed on stage to hug their idol as early as the first song. Morrissey wasn't very talkative, but seemingly in good spirits. There were no change in the setlist.

This gig is the one Johnny Rogan refers to in the revised edition of his "Morrissey and Marr - The Severed Alliance" biography when he talks about a "Johnny Rogan Is Dead" sign. However there was no such thing. Morrissey did pull up a fan-made sign from the front rows during "Certain People I Know", but it stated "Johnny Thunders is not dead" (Johnny Thunders was a member of the New York Dolls who had passed away the previous year). The facts were probably transformed until they were printed in the NME whose staff was desperate for controversy at the time.

During "Suedehead", Morrissey did stabbing motions into his side with the microphone while singing the "it was a good lay" part. In the usual noisy encore chaos at the end of "The National Front Disco", Spencer beat his drum kit with a microphone stand while the other musicians destroyed their instruments.


An audience video recording of the complete concert is circulated on bootleg VHS and DVDs. The footage is unfortunately quite shaky and is sometimes obstructed.

An average sounding audience recording of the whole concert is traded amongst collectors of bootlegs on cds, tapes or digital format. An alternate recording of just a few songs is also available from certain bootleg tape traders, but this is not found on the internet at this point in time.
