The information for this image was taken for a story that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on 23rd September 1987 "The End are back in town after their South Island tour, having performed 18 shows in venues ranging from West Coast pubs to campuses and trendy night-spots.

Vocalist/guitarist Paul Campbell said he felt the band's original songs, off their just-recorded album "The Ultimate Game" went down well. Apart from Hokitika, Greymouth, Westport and Nelson, The End played five gigs in Christchurch and also found time for Wellington nightspots The Playroom and The Cricketers.

The band met up with artist Calum Hay in Christchurch, and he is spending some time with them working on design and videos for the album. Immediate plans are to play more Wellington venues while finishing off the mixing with Nigel Stone, with a 21-date North Island tour planned for the album's Christmas release.

Bassett Road Murders guitarist Des Kerr has been confirmed as guest musician for the tour, as has Leonard Carney, who formerly pounded the skins for Cement Garden."
