Kirill Maslov has tracked down this ticket for the 26 May 1989 gig at the Velvet Estate, Rimini, Italy. It has been signed by Robert Butler from The Miracle Workers, the headline band for the night, making this the only gig on the 1989 European tour that I’m aware of that Spacemen 3 didn’t headline.

A poster for the “Birthday Gigs”, held on 18 November 1986 and 26 November 1986 (Pete and Jason would turn 21 the day after the first of these). There was already a picture of a red version on the pages for these gigs, nice to have a yellow version too.
