Here we go again - Morrissey's second date of his short (but hopefully not last) UK tour happens today in the City of Kingston upon Hull; home of cream telephone boxes and future UK City of Culture.

|ON THE ROAD|
UPDATE: "Past the Sc**thorpe turn off..."
No surprises so far: "Bit of traffic in Hull. 5 minutes to the hotel. Which I hope has a well stocked bar! Weather: shit."
Some carparks are lower than others :-/
More bad news: "I've done a rat and forgotten my toothbrush"
UPDATE: Preventing dehydration at the show. Very responsible, as usual.
Old Mozza's mobile home just went past!
Now parked outside the venue:
List of prohibited items... includes inflatables, specifically beach balls (as if people would ever bring such crazy stuff to a Morrissey show!). Also, no bicycles or scooters inside the venue please.
Pre-show drinkles... those teeth look shinier than Moz's sh*rts!
First hurdle taken - the DDD brigade made it safely inside the venue. Boozey + The Guy Who Always Gets Sent To Buy Booze (TGWAGSTBB) ended up THIRD row centre stage, apparently behind the Bitter Boring Bitchy guy's cousin; location of a certain Canadian Mlle and BBB fellow still unclear.
While we're waiting for more updates (which might be difficult as Boozey's phone reception keeps coming and going) - it turned out that Bitter Bobby's cousin is actually "wpeace123456", the one who made one of the World Peace Is None Of Your Business videos as mentioned on TTY! I guess BBB was just TOO LAZY to mention it before.
UPDATE: Pre-show started! And apparently people had to put all their belongings into plastic bags. Don't ask me why, I'm just reporting.

Many thanks again to the fabulous Boozelette for keeping us updated - and especially for that stunning last picture. The sh*ny sh*rts may finally grow on me!
And the rhythm of life goes round:
P.S. This is just too good not to share, the troubles of getting out of that sh*ny b*****d:
