MON 3rd MAY : MORRISSEY IN NEW YORK

Jumped on the red line, avoided the rain and saw Morrissey at the Apollo Theater in Harlem. Amazing building with few bar staff - the rest of the staff were marshalling us about and confiscating cameras and camera-telephones.

Took the Lady 5 times as long to get in as they were searching each and every bag.

After I got a beer in we had good entertainment from floppy so and so. Bit of politics here and there, some great crooning amidst the lighting: one or 2 old ones, good few from his new album. Bloke jumps up on stage and gives him a cuddle. Lots of playing with the microphone lead: he could be one of those gymnasts with the flowy ribbon or a whipping guy.

Flowers all over the place. Trying to hide from the searchlights (honest) Took useless shot of the show with my crap T610 phone:

Went to after party which was empty - not all was lost: found out from barman that Euro 2004 is not being shown in only 4 pubs but everywhere as Direct TV have bought the rights. Spending May planning the event. Will post thoughts.

UPDATE - CHECK MY NYC GUIDE FOR EURO 2004 PUBS!

I live in Harlem (5 blocks from the Apollo), so I guess we traded places on Monday. While you were seeing Morrissey, I was downtown in SoHo seeing Nick Denton. I will let you know about any future blogger events!

Cheers,
Nichelle
