He still has a magical way of captivating his audience. It’s as if everyone in the audience thinks he is singing directly to them.

As a long time The Smiths fan, it was great to see him sprinkle in 7 classics from back in the day.

This was the third time in as many months seeing Morrissey perform and the second time shooting his performance. While Moz performed 19 songs, the show was relatively short in time.

This was my first time shooting at the Capitol Theater. The renovations were beautifully done. It reminded me of a smaller, more intimate Beacon Theater.

As for the lighting, it was hit and miss. That comes par for the course when seeing/shooting a Morrissey show. Not the venues fault.
