Morrissey - Madison Square Garden NYC

In fine voice and with high energy, Morrissey treated MSG to
a smattering of his solo work with a few Smiths tunes thrown in.
His ridiculously tight band was in full force, fine form and packed a wallop.

Morrissey took a moment to note how special it was to be performing in 
the U.S. (and notably in NYC) during Gay Pride Weekend amid the landmark 
marriage equality ruling that occurred on Friday (as opening act Blondie did).

Great set. Great energy... And I even got a hand slap from Moz... POW!

Blondie - Madison Square Garden NYC

Blondie (joined by the What Cheer? Brigade) open Morrissey's
 Madison Square Garden concert. This was a dream show for me...
Getting to see two acts I adore (and have seen numerous times)
on the same bill. Blondie was in top form and in full on celebration
mode, several times making reference to the historic landmark 
 ruling on marriage equality and the fact that this show was taking place
 during Gay Pride Weekend. Seeing Debbie Harry drape herself in the
rainbow flag to uproarious cheers from the assembled crowd was a thrill.

Thanks for a great show, guys...
And thanks for always being vocal allies of the GLBT community.
More images from Morrissey's live set to follow very soon.
