Live Recordings

An excellent unofficial recording of this show is in circulation and is known commonly in bootleg circles as Thank Your Lucky Stars; this was the title it was given when originally issued on CD. This is arguably the finest Smiths bootleg in existence in overall terms of sound quality, band performance, and setlist eclecticism. It boasts a stunningly unique arrangement of setlist opener Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want, as well as a live rendition of the instrumental b-side Money Changes Everything. It is a near-complete document of the entire set with the exception of Bigmouth Strikes Again, the last song played. Furthermore, this bootleg serves as an interesting testament to Morrissey losing his temper toward the end of the show when he interrupted I Know It's Over to admonish the security guards for manhandling stage invaders.
