as a weakness uncomfortably similar to Oasis's Liam Gallagher nasally whine, but in a live setting, any such criticism could be disregarded from the force he brought to his solo work and the utmost care he brought to the evening's Smiths songs. The encore was a summation of Marr's strong performance with a delicate guitar intro that gradually morphed into Smiths' lullabye "Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want," followed by a scintillating cover of the Clash's version of "I Fought the Law," Electronic's "Getting Away With It," and concluding with "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" which Marr "[dedicated] to everyone in this room and nobody fucking else." The sing-along Marr encouraged in that song's outro was a touching rock gesture that reflected the earnestness of the audience members' thrown up devil horns during "How Soon Is Now?" and "I Fought the Law." That sincere devil horns, as popularized by deceased elven fan fiction writer Ronnie James Dio, could find their way into the air during "How Soon Is Now?" of all things, speaks volumes for the breadth of Johnny Marr's continuing appeal.
