The final of three New York City dates was a huge success. Morrissey seemed to be in great spirits although he didn't address his audience until the encore. The fans were very energetic, singing along and dancing. A very large barrier prevented them from getting on stage.

There was another significant resequencing of the setlist. Regular "Alsatian Cousin" and part-timers "The Last Of The Famous International Playboys", "Interesting Drug" and "Sister I'm A Poet" were not included, but part-timers "Girl Least Likely To", "He Knows I'd Love To See Him" and "Jack The Ripper" returned.

For a second night, "The National Front Disco" was played early in the set but still ended in an extended chaotic jam of feedback just like it did when performed as set closer. Unlike the previous gig, it was followed by the rocking "You're Gonna Need Someone On Your Side" instead of a mellower number. The latter song was followed by a particularly electric "Girl Least Likely To". Returning for the encore, Morrissey started to apologise ("I know that I don't say too much, but...") before launching into the final number, the yet to be released "Jack The Ripper".

David Bowie attended this show. It was rumoured that he and Morrissey would do another duet like they did in 1991, but it didn't happen.


A fair audience recording of the whole concert can be found on bootleg cd-rs as well as on the internet. The recording captured a lot of the bootlegger's surrounding noises (conversations, singing), but on the flipside, the ambience from that show is well conveyed.
