6 October 1992|
Center Arena, Seattle, WA
You're Gonna Need Someone On Your SideThis was yet another rough show punctuated by stage diving, objects thrown on stage and microphone problems. Many of the people who reached Morrissey didn't even care about him, they just threw themselves back into the crowd. Of course Seattle was home to the grunge movement that was probably near its popularity peak around 1992.
In "Girl Least Likely To", besides the usual changes, Morrissey sang "but we say well done to the girl least likely to". After "I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday", the man started to say "It just came to my attention that erm..." but in typical Morrissey fashion, he never finished what he meant to say.
In "Suedehead", it seemed like Morrissey was going to change "Oh so many illustrations" to "Oh so many blank pages" as he often did on the previous year's Kill Uncle tour, but feedback drowned the word 'pages'. There was more feedback in the following song, "He Knows I'd Love To See Him", to the point of annoyance, making Morrissey skip many lines.
During "Seasick, Yet Still Docked", something - most likely a shoe - was thrown on stage and hit Boz's guitar. Morrissey stopped singing and said "ohohohohoh... shhh... stop stop!... let's forget that... if we continue to play are you gonna continue to throw things or should we just go? Well look, if somebody next to you throws anything, would you please... kill them!". Then, for some unknown reason, a few seconds later he added "Wow! you're incredible!". After one more song, Morrissey was heard asking someone in the audience "Such as... such as..."
During the encore, a girl was pulled on stage by Morrissey and got to dance half of "Everyday Is Like Sunday" with him. The action on stage kept Morrissey away from his microphone for long portions of that song. During the extended feedback typical of the end of live performances of "The National Front Disco", Boz read a poem again, a different one than the night before.
