Hard to believe it's been 30 years, but it is what it is!
A roundup of pubs marking this occasion:

Interesting interview with Nalinee Darmrong, who befriended the band and took lots of photos during this tour (also promoting her photo book coming out now). She followed them abroad, so I wonder if Steve or Paul ever crossed paths with her:

I guess we must have, but I don't remember her. Maybe if I saw a picture from the time.
I have a picture that I took outside the Clickimin centre that looks as if was taken at exactly the same time. In mine Johnny is looking straight into the camera, so I guess she must have been standing to my right. The band had been doing the soundcheck, which we had been aloud to wander in to watch, and then we stayed a chatted afterwards. The band were led outside by the local paper to take some photos by the Clickimin sign, so all the fans got their cameras out as well. That whole tour was rather special. In retrospect I think they were playing at the very best on that tour.

As far as I'm aware it's Moz that won't allow anything "new" to be released as he doesn't want Mike Joyce making money out of it.
Could be wrong but I'm fairly sure that was the situation.

Morrissey is dead right, the cunt took him to court and did his best to humiliate him.
I wouldn't give Joyce the steam of me piss, he's a wanker.

I know that most Smiths fans are loyal to Moz but I do think name-calling Mike Joyce who won the court case while Moz was called an unreliable witness by the judge is just wrong.
Mike Joyce felt he was owed money and that he didn't get what he was due, the judge agreed, end of.
Morrissey is no saint.
