Hollywood Bowl, Hollywood, CA
I Know It's Gonna Happen SomedayThis concert turned out better than the previous one at the same venue because of increased interaction between Morrissey and the crowd, and less of the typical California concert violence. Morrissey was very theatrical throughout the show. Guards were posted near merchandise booths to prevent the repeat of the previous night's post-concert events.
The setlist was significantly resequenced as obviously many fans were going to both Hollywood Bowl shows. New composition "Jack The Ripper" as well as standard set closer "The National Front Disco" were removed from the setlist, replaced by part-timers "Tomorrow" and "The Loop". At the beginning of the tour, "Such A Little Thing Makes Such A Big Difference" always segued into Morrissey's cover of Suede's "My Insatiable One". Then later, it segued into "I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday" as it would until the end of the tour. But on this date and the two following ones, the song segued into "Girl Least Likely To".
"I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday" was moved up to the position of new set opener. It was the first time this song was performed otherwise than at the end of "Such A Little Thing Makes Such A Big Difference". Understandably, the "...we look to Los Angeles" line in "Glamorous Glue" got a reaction from the crowd.
After "We'll Let You Know", Morrissey stated "You know I would really like to say more but I'm English and therefore very clumsy and... well... well... well...". He again threw a pair of maracas into the crowd during "You're The One For Me, Fatty". After "Sister I'm A Poet", he asked "I don't want to lapse into... what's the word... like rock'n'roll language, I don't wanna do that, but is everybody reasonably okay?".
Ex-set opener "You're Gonna Need Someone On Your Side" was moved down to first encore. For the first time since the second date of this tour, the concert didn't end with "The National Front Disco". The new closer "November Spawned A Monster" was extended with Morrissey wailing and a long instrumental feedback outro after he left the stage.
