Extra Shows In The Final Tribute To The Smiths

Salford Lads' Club

Are Rather Chuffed To Announce


The Smiths

The declaration of the Salford Lads Club's final Smiths Tribute performances has caused a furore comparable to little else but the death of the Mother Theresa;

maybe even that of Lady Di.

These outpourings of emotion have resulted in the scheduling of two extra dates.

In Auckland, the Lads now play Fri 29th April at Galatos, in addition to the Sat 30th.

In Wellington, adding to the Saturday night gig at Indigo, the band will play an earlier show on the Sunday 8th May entitled "Some Mothers Day Gigs Are Bigger Than Others"

People are urged to bring flowers to these last shows, and also, whenever possible, their mothers. Indeed, a generous offer has been provided on the Sunday gig of free entry to the first 100 mums accompanying their offspring, and able to prove their relationship.

These will be the very last shows of many mad celebrations over the last couple of years, before the group finally heads off to 'Strangeways' for a tea drinking sabbatical.

Remember to bring flowers!

So, Goodbye.
