This was a rather uneventful concert. Security was tight enough, and the crowd lacked enthusiasm, so there wasn't much rushing to the front, only a few attempts during the encore. Morrissey was in a playful mood, at some point he tried to stir a little action with witty remarks, but to no avail. The order of the songs was only slightly changed, and "Reader Meet Author" was replaced by "Roy's Keen".

Morrissey greeted the crowd with "Hello Russia!", alluding to the Russian city of the same name. Later, to someone who asked him to play "Sunny", he asked "Why?". Shortly after he enquired "Is anyone here from England?... I suppose you'll all move to Miami eventually anyway". Following his tradition of wittily crediting "Paint A Vulgar Picture" as a song from someone else, it was introduced on this date with the words "As you all know I used to play keyboards in a band called the Partridge Family... here's one of our rock'n'roll songs".


Nothing from this concert is circulated on bootlegs at this point in time.
