If you are right winger, why would you go to this concert? You know he is a left-wing activist. As a fan, I wanted more but he probably got tired of a few people in the first couple of rows. The Fillmore was great for a venue. Seats a little small but an intimate setting. Not many restaurants open afterwards.

Morissey is a great singer! What a great band! He doesnt seem to miss Johnnie Marr! I agree with and respect his political activism but wish he didnt have to step on 1 of my very fave Smiths songs, Shoplifters of the World in the process!!! Everyday is like Sunday was the climax!!

GREAT TALENT, BUT SHOULD BE IN “TUNE” WITH...
A politically, diverse audience who all love Morrissey (for his music), not American political “iopinion” Larry King’s recent interview, with Morrissey, documented he was “depressed” and NOT treated. No judgement here, and applaud his strength for helping others know that it’s beyond us. Depression, sexual abuse, confusion and finding our way through life is always an ongoing struggle. I love Morrissey for his exceptional talent...(his voice and poetics.) Any celebrity, entertainer or movie star should refrain from speaking on a sensitive subject; unless of course, they are not concerned of losing fans. Sad to report This was the last of many Morrissey concerts I will atrend. I’m also aware that he’s fine with diminishing and weeding out certain followers. Wishing all the best on his future endeavors! Voice is AMAZING Fillmore staff was fabulous and loved being downtown!

The Ravinia show last night was a fantastic combination of decades of Morrissey’s finest moments(and some that we weren’t mature enough to understand at the time). He’s a character and engaged with his audience authentically. The concert was a highlight for me.

Fantastic band. Morrissey's voice is incredible. Interpol was excellent as well.

SOUNDED GREAT, BUT...
Morrissey sounded great, his band sounded great, and he was motivated, but the song-selection was subpar, especially in the middle of the show. Too many covers and slower momentum-killing songs in a row.

SHORT CONCERT NOT ENOUGH HITS
I love Morrissey and his vocals are as great as ever. He did a number of covers in the middle of the show and a few others that dampened the momentum. Yes he did a great job on them but fans wanted more of his hits. He also spent a lot of time autographing a number of items from one audience member only, which I can’t understand, one item is a fan, far more is someone wanting to profit from him. Having recently seen Sir Paul and Elton, both of whom played for three hours, Morrissey’s around one and a half hours was miserly. He is an immense talent but I thought he mailed this one in. Second time seeing him and it will be my last. If I’m going to spend my money, I want value and for me, he didn’t deliver.

Despite a great body of work, Morrissey played mostly obscure songs and covers. It was unfortunate that after 22 years, he failed to play most of the songs we all grew up with and grew up with, checking out a little after an hour.

ICONIC STAR SHINES BUT ONLY BRIEFLY
After waiting forever to check off this concert from my bucket list I was disappointed in the experience. Morrissey was clearly inebriated or ? The end of his performance was puzzling as a song began but was abruptly ended before the opening notes were completed. His constant stumbling on stage gave away his condition and his comments to the crowd were bizarre and confusing. His voice sounds great. .loved the background set and his band but wouldn't recommend the experience overall. I'm sure a sober set would have been fun but he clearly didn't want to be there.
