This first major tour by the Smiths was put together to promote their debut album, and it was a complete sell-out. Despite administrative problems (managing, booking) behind the scenes and Morrissey being ill for the first portion of the tour, everything turned out very well as the band were welcome as messiahs everywhere they went.

A handful of concerts originally scheduled from 2 to 10 February were cancelled because Morrissey was struck with bronchitis. They were slotted at the tail end of the tour (which should originally have ended in Manchester) for a total of 32 dates.

Smithsmania was the buzzword and the concerts were very hectic. The Smiths could do no wrong. Unfortunately many of the concerts happening in smaller cities were attended by negative elements who wanted to find out what the Smiths were about, but not necessarily appreciating. There was a lot of heckling and coins or beer were thrown on stage.

Morrissey’s rider included a jar of Gale’s Honey, a fresh lemon and many flowers. He had to have his own room
