Special thanks to my niece Sarah Akers for the show pictures

Morrissey played a superb set with his voice sounding as good as it ever has. This was my fist gig at the Arena for 10 years, hopefully there's a similar space in time until I see another show here.

My personal highlights were Munich Air Disaster 1958, I Bury The Living and Everyday Is Like Sunday
