Ten Things You Feel at a Morrissey Concert

A Morrissey concert is a particularly emotional experience for everyone. From the most rabid Smiths-loathing, beef-loving haters to the people who still buy Morrissey's new albums and weep openly at the shows all over Moz tour T's, the crowd is a hotbed for feelings.

Last Saturday night at the Arsht Center, Moz immediately drew a sold-out crowd to its feet and had them singing along by song one: the Smiths' "How Soon Is Now?" But it was before the familiar tune blared that so many things were being felt by black-clad friends buzzing around the lobby of the building. And even prior to that, when many had trouble sleeping the night before, planning out the next evening, the one when they would be in the presence of true brilliance.

Emotions are why you go to see Morrissey live. Here are ten you've probably felt at one of his concerts.
