It was the penultimate night of Morrissey's seven-show Broadway run on Friday (5/10), and, according to Setlist.fm, for the first time he didn't play a song that hadn't previously been played at the Lunt-Fontanne. But he did play The Smiths' "Girl Afraid," which was only the third time he's ever done it as a solo artist, plus "What She Said," "Is it Really So Strange?" and "How Soon is Now?," plus classic solo numbers "Everyday is Like Sunday" (which opened the night), "Suedehead," "Dial-a-Cliche," Vauxhall and I's "Speedway" and more.
There were also back-to-back covers of Jobriath's "Morning Starship (from his upcoming California Son) and The Pretenders' "Back on the Chain Gang," as well as newer material like "The Bullfighter Dies" (which has taken the place of "Meat is Murder" in his set these days), and "World Peace is None of Your Business." Moz closed Night 6 with "First of the Gang to Die." Setlist, and a few more Instagrams, are below.
Morrissey wraps up his Broadway run tonight (5/11), which is sold-out but there are resale tickets. 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).
