This was the second consecutive night at the same venue, and it was as much a success as the first. The setlist was resequenced and "Rusholme Ruffians" and "Barbarism Begins At Home" were replaced by "Reel Around The Fountain".

Because this was the second date at the same venue, Morrissey greeted the audience with "Hello again!" before going into the opening number. When he thanked the fans after "Hand In Glove", he added "we missed you..." His only other banter before the break preceding the encore was the introduction of "Stretch Out And Wait". After "Jeane" Morrissey exclaimed "So there!" When the Smiths returned to the stage to perform the second encore, Morrissey thanked the audience by saying "You've been very courageous..."
