Listen: The Smiths, ‘Vicar in a Tutu’ — unreleased live take from Canada 1986

The weekly arrival of previously unreleased live versions of tracks off The Smiths’ classic The Queen is Dead continues with “Vicar in a Tutu,” which you can stream below in the form of a never-before-released recording from July 30, 1986, at Centennial Hall in London, Ontario, Canada — the opening night of the band’s North American tour.

That track, like its weekly predecessors (see links below), won’t be included in the upcoming 3CD/1DVD reissue of The Queen is Dead. But the band’s label did recently release one of the tracks that will appear on the Live in Boston bonus disc: a 4-minute medley “Rubber Ring/What She Said/Rubber Ring.”

Below, check out the new (old) version of “Vicar in a Tutu.”
