Watch The Smiths Final concert from Dec 12, 1986 [Video]


Friday 12 December 1986 The Smiths played their final gig as a band.
Brixton Academy, London, England.

*This concert, put together as a benefit for the Artists Against Apartheid, was originally due to be held at the Royal Albert Hall on 14 November 1986 but it had to be rescheduled following Johnny’s car accident. It turned out to be the last time the Smiths were on stage together, bar a few television appearances. This was the only time “Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others”, the upcoming single “Shoplifters Of The World Unite” and the “London”/”Miserable Lie” medley were ever performed by the Smiths.
