Concert post: Detroit, Masonic Temple

Morrissey's highly anticipated show at the iconic Masonic Temple finally takes place tonight! Some might know that masonic signs were often featured on the old MorrisseysWorld blog, so the choice of venue alone was already interpreted by many as a nod to Blue Rose Society. As far as we know, there won't be any Blue Rose(r)s in the audience tonight, so once again, we rely on social media and youtube.

Will there be any surprises for us? Will Trouble be back on the setlist? Remember, TROUBLE LOVES ME is an anagram of LOVE M(asonic) T(emple) BLUE ROSE. Could Oboe finally debut? Will we see those typical masonic hand signs again, as in the picture below? Will something completely unexpected happen, or nothing at all?


This isn't really an update, because there's nothing to report on, there's not even a set list available yet. But a Masonic Temple show without any signs is unthinkable! So, just because, here's a picture of Morrissey in Detroit's "Temple of Filth", doing some sort of... hand sign...


Thankfully, a certain Mlle Jenni has uploaded the whole show to youtube:

We're gutted that she didn't passionately sing along to any of the songs, but at least we have the set list now:

Alma Matters
Staircase At The University
World Peace Is None Of Your Business
Kiss Me A Lot
I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris
Will Never Marry (piano intro)
Everyday Is Like Sunday
Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before
First Of The Gang To Die
I Will See You In Far-Off Places
The World Is Full Of Crashing Bores
The Bullfighter Dies
Meat Is Murder
Now My Heart Is Full

Encore: What She Said


  1. Thanks for posting old fruit. You never know, maybe a secret Blue Rose follower will be attending tonight?
    Moz might get his Rose Garden!

  2. Are there really secret blue rosers about? No one surrounding me at MSG besides Father Brian had any idea about why I had two blue roses with me. But most thought it was a nice gesture.

  4. Thank you Anonymous one for the fabulous Moz clip and for the ( Masonic ) Latin expression.

    1. I am proud of being a loser, so thank you.

  6. Where is Alf? I miss him terribly. Sigh.
