Back in the late 80’s/early 90’s, Morrissey would routinely sell out huge arenas like the Staples Center but over the years, Moz has been much happier to perform for more intimate audiences in smaller theater venues. But last night, he returned to his glory days by performing a sold out concert at the Staples Center here in LA. Last night’s show was originally supposed to take place last November with Iggy & the Stooges but the tour was postponed until just this month. The absolutely AMAZING Patti Smith joined Moz in concert last night and the pair of them put on a show that was truly unbelievable. Check out a few photos and video below.
I’ve never seen Patti Smith in concert before but I’ve been a fan for years. She is just one of the most stunning live performers I’ve ever seen. The woman is just a musical goddess. I stood in awe, literally, thruout her entire set. I couldn’t believe that I was finally seeing her perform live. I love Morrissey, y’all know I do, but Patti … wow, she just won my heart last night. Mozzer, of course, put on a great show. He was in fine spirits and he seemed to LOVE all of the loving energy that was coming to him last night. He sauntered and crooned like a boss … it was really something to see the sold out Staples Center losing their shit over Morrissey :) Here is vide of Morrissey’s performance of How Soon Is Now?:
So great, right? If you can believe it, I’m seeing Moz one more time in concert tonight. He’s playing a super tiny show at Hollywood High School … which is like the polar opposite of the sold out Staples Center:
I’m not sure what to expect but I can’t wait to experience it. Tamar is going to be my date and I’m crazy excited.
The weather here has gotten hot, y’all. It’s going to be mid-80s and sunny all weekend. I hope all y’all are having a great Saturday and a great weekend. Wee!0
