DOWNLOAD: Morrissey - I Like You (MP3)

Morrissey @ Hammerstein Ballroom, NYC - Oct 22, 2007 (CRED)
Morrissey @ Hammerstein Ballroom

Morrissey began his 5-night stand at Hammerstein Ballroom on Monday night with an energetic and powerful performance. Clearly understanding the disappointment at his cancellation of the June concert, Morrissey said “our little donkey finally made it to New York City, thanks for your patience, thanks for waiting” after the third number. He proceeded to deliver a set tight with recent numbers and weighed heavy on the back end with Smiths favorites, including the rare “Death of a Disco Dancer” from Strangeways. [NYCTaper taped it]
