Whether Morrissey is young or old - geek or suave - he is still an amazing performer, songwriter and musician.
The older, sexy as ever Morrissey - the former frontman of the legendary "The Smiths"
I was in San Francisco in September 2007 to visit some clients and friends and of course take the city in! I've been there before on business so did not get much time to feel the city out at that time.
Whilst there I read that "Morrissey" would be performing for 4 nights at the Fillmore. Of course I could not get through to buy tickets and could not buy on-line for some reason. I just showed up at the box office - and said "One ticket please".
The girl at the window just looked up and said "Sorry - all sold out."
I said - "Wow - didn't tickets go on sale like 2 days ago?"
Girl said - "Yeah - it's Morrissey baby!"
And to me - that summed it all up.
I did however get get a ticket after haggling the price with some guy who had extra. I showed up two minutes later at the box office, showed her my tix - "It was meant to be" was all I could have said.
As sexy as ever in his younger days - that body looks scrumptious!
Morrissey live in concert is something to see - the ex-frontman of "The Smiths" still has an amazing voice that is recognisable some 20+ years later and he looked great. His band members were all younger and they gave an amazing show - especially the drummer whom I thought was cute and lucky at the same time (to be with Morrissey).
Morrissey talked about the injustice to gays in Iran and being in San Fran there were quite a bit of gay couples - support was shown by all to Morrissey's statements - from both gay and straight.
Also one last thing I remember thinking - there were so many gay couples in the crowd - and they were openly affectionate with each other. I was thinking - "wow - isn't it nice to go out on to a concert with your partner and not have to "hide" affection?" Maybe it was because of Morrissey!
That concert was the last I had seen for some time and quite ironically the next concert I saw was supposed to be Morrissey at HRC in Orlando, some 16 months later - but the show got cancelled :(.
I leave you with some pics and music from the man himself:
