"And if you have five seconds to spare…"
Just the facts. Night four of Morrissey at the Hammerstein Ballroom was the best show of the series so far - a 9.5/10. Morrissey wore a tuxedo, was in high spirits, went off on a rant about Canada in regards to their killing of baby seals, and delivered his strongest vocals of perhaps any show I've seen him perform to date.
The intro song remained the same ("Wayward Sisters" by Klaus Nomi) as did Morrissey's on stage time (9:05ish). Near me, once again, were some notable celebrities and another fight. I've come to expect both now at New York area Morrissey shows. There were two songs performed that hadn't yet been played during this current run of shows in NYC ("The Last Of The Famous International Playboys" and "The National Front Disco") and they were the highlights of the evening for me.
Final show is tonight.
