A rider purporting to be from The Smiths’ 1986 US tour has begun circulating on Twitter.

Posted by a user calling themselves Viva Hate 72, the image shows that Morrissey requested cheese sandwiches, while band members Andy Rourke, Mike Joyce and Craig Gannon wanted tuna sandwiches without mayonnaise.

Morrissey’s handwritten amendments to the rider include requesting Lucozade rather than Gatorade, also adding in a bottle of red wine and a quarter-bottle of gin alongside printed requests for fruit, nuts and “some biscuits or cake”. Johnny Marr’s rider asked for beer, Coke, two packets of cigarettes and two rounds of cheese and tomato sandwiches, without butter or margarine.

The alleged rider, which can be seen below, was for a tour in support of the band’s 1986 album ‘The Queen Is Dead’, which reached No 70 in the Billboard chart.

Morrissey began a US tour this week (May 7) and releases his new album ‘World Peace Is None Of Your Business’ in July. It’s his first new album since ‘Years Of Refusal’ in 2009 and his first for his new record label Harvest.
