Morrissey returned to the road Wednesday night as his U.S. tour opened in San Jose, Calif., with a show that found the former Smiths frontman debuting three new songs off his forthcoming album World Peace Is None Of Your Business during a 20-song set that ended abruptly as Moz was forced to flee the stage as fans mobbed his band.

According to a setlist posted to morrissey-solo.com (see below), Morrissey opened the show with the Smiths classic “Hand in Glove,” then proceeded to sprinkle in a trio of new songs (“World Peace is None of Your Business,” “The Bullfighter Dies” and “Earth is the Loneliest Planet”) during the main set. (He also performed the Smiths’ “Meat is Murder” and “Asleep.”)

As you can see from the video below, however, the show ended rather abruptly during Years of Refusal’s “One Day Goodbye Will Be Farewell,” as fans invaded the stage and Moz was left to flee with his band.

The tour continues tonight in Santa Ana, Calif.

Below, check out the setlist and video of the stage invasion, all three new songs and other highlights from the show. We’ll add more as it surfaces.
