Concert post: Plymouth Pavilions


Apologies for that ghastly caption. Finally! Morrissey's short UK tour kicks off in Plymouth today, and we're very happy that two of us are in the audience - Lizzycatmoz (might bring a blue rose) and Boozey Boozelette (might bring booze). Here's the schedule:

Mlle Boozey, probably still driving at the moment, has agreed to keep us informed about everyting that happens before, during, and after the show, so this post will be updated throughout the evening.

UPDATE: The Boozelette has arrived safely in Plymouth, after a bit of a struggle as "Plymouth has no car parking signs". However, all was well shortly afterwards:

The weather: Grey, of course! 14°C, light breeze.

First pictures from the queue:

UPDATE: Mlle's spot in the arena - second row, Jesse/Gustavo side (of course only to have a good view on the tambourine action behind the keyboards during Speedway):

UPDATE: Seems like the lucky Boozelette managed to move forwards a couple of inches:

Final UPDATE for today: The lovely Boozelette is still buzzing, and so are we... Merci infiniment for the updates, and safe journey home!


  1. Looking forward to the updates!

  2. Thanks for doing this lovely people!

  3. Ahahaha!! I'll probably nip back after a few songs

  4. Moz on stage at 8:49 pm - 8+4-9 = THREE! ;)

    1. What is wrong with you people?! Alf isn't Moz. I know who it is and it isn't him.

    2. Yeah, who is Alf then? Enlighten us oh wise one.

  5. Thanks, Mll. Boozelette! We're really in the moment with your updates!

  6. Oboe <3 I hope it stays in - I looove it!

  7. Thanks for all the updates! Very exciting reading updates of the show from one of us, as it happens. The fact that Moz made an Olympic towards you when he sang 3 is quite incredible. You lucky girl. I'd be thrilled if Moz gave me the middle finger. LoL.

  8. I have had a terrible few weeks, I lost my Dad at the end of July and my Mum passed away last Saturday.
    However I decided that they would have wanted my husband and I to go to the concert, knowing how I feel about Moz.
    Morrissey you gave me a couple of hours away from the devastation of bereavement.
    You were AMAZING. You looked so fit and well and happy. You sounded magnificent.
    Merci beaucoup for Suedehead, Now My Heart Is Full ( which left us both in tears of joy )
    Oboe Concerto and Speedway amongst the awesome set list.
    I can only apologise for my hometown audience, who let the side down.
    Your band were stunning and the lightshow and projections, mesmerising.
    Your humour and wit was much in evidence.
    I am eternally grateful to you, I hope that you will visit Plymouth during another tour.

    1. I am very sorry for your loss. It is very nice to hear the Morrissey concert was a comfort and a moment of relief for you and your husband.

    2. I am so very sorry to hear about the losses and pain you've been through recently, Lizzy. Morrissey has a gift of taking us to another place for a few hours when we see him sing live, and gives us so much in those moments; it can be a very cathartic and profound experience. I'm so glad you were able to have a break from what I can only imagine has been a very agonizing few months. Take care.

    3. Thoughts are with you Lizzy. Glad you enjoyed the show.

    4. My condolences to you (Lizzy) & yours. Im so sorry to hear about what happen. We're here for you. I think it was a good idea to see Moz. What better way to just let out all your emotions, at a Morrissey show. Im happy to hear you had a wonderful time at the show. Stay strong, keep youre head up & honestly I love how Moz can always cheer us up abit, "save me from life"... Our thoughts r w/ with you Lizzy xx - Rosy

    5. Oh Lizzy dear, it's very sad to know what's happened to your parents, be strong girl and I'm sure hour husband is doing his best for you. Thanks to Morrissey who gave you a little bit of happiness with his concert. Kiss and hugtk you and to all Morrissey's fans.

    6. Lizzy, I am so sorry for your loss. I couldn't imagine what it would be like to lose both parents so close together. Glad you both went last night and had a moment of joy in these difficult times. xx N

    7. So sorry to hear about your mum, too! Life sucks!

      Glad that you managed to go and enjoy Moz for a couple of hours and shame that I couldn't make it.
      Keep strong! xxx

    8. Sorry to hear your sad news Lizzy. It’s hard to lose a parent, but to lose both at the same time must be devastating. xx

  9. As I can't sleep, I might as well comment...

    First, I'm so sorry to hear about what you went through recently, Lizzy. I hope you can feel better soon.

    Second, Mlle is still driving and guess whom she shared the road with... a Beat The Street bus! However, it wasn't fast enough to keep up with her.

    And third, apologies for that little mistake in the set list, the encore of course was What She Said, not The Queen Is Dead. Funnily enough, we weren't the only ones who got that wrong... !

  10. Just got into bed... I will do a what I can remember review tomorrow.
    Glad you enjoyed the updates.
    Can't believe I got the last song wrong, I will explain why tomorrow (I was obviously to mesmerized at that lovely turquoise shirt that was a bit shiny (you had to be there))!
    Night all up in 4.5 hours for work. Unless I ring up and see if they will let me have tomorrow off...

  11. Thank you all so much for your kind comments and support,
    it means so much and has been a source of comfort at this time.
