Morrissey on Broadway Night 4 (setlist, video)
After a couple days off, Morrissey resumed his seven-show Broadway residency at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. Moz has been doing a good job of mixing up his setlists at these shows, and dusting off some deep cuts (and big hits) and at Night 4 (May 7) he pulled out out Vauxhall & I's closing cut, "Speedway," which hadn't been played yet during this residency. The rest of the show was a combo of songs he's played at every show ("Every Day is Like Sunday," "The Bullfighter Dies," "If You Don't Like Me, Don't Look at Me "), Smiths songs ("How Soon is Now," "Is it Really So Strange?," "That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore" and "What She Said"), and solo faves like "Suedehead," "Break Up the Family," and "First of the Gang to Die."
We've still only one song off his upcoming covers album (Jobriath's "Morning Starship"), which is probably enough given how many Smiths/solo originals fans want to hear, but it would be nice to see him switch it up with something else off the record. (If you're wondering he's still ripping off his shirt.) Check out the Night 4 setlist and a few more Instagrams from the show, below.
Morrissey plays again Wednesday (5/8), skips Thursday, and then finishes his run at the Lunt-Fontanne on Friday and Saturday. Tickets are still available. He'll then be back in NYC at the end of summer when his tour with Interpol hits Forest Hills Stadium on September 9 (tickets).
