A Smiths reunion may remain unlikely, but two of the iconic band's members are heading out on tour--just not at the same time. While Morrissey is off to Canada, prolific guitarist Johnny Marr has announced a run of shows here in the States.
Marr's tour kicks off in late April and will run for about a month, wrapping up at the end of May, including stops in Englewood and Providence. Tickets for select shows go on sale right here on AXS starting tomorrow, Friday, Feb. 22, while pre-sales are already underway. And who knows? Fans might just get lucky with a Smiths song or two in Marr's set--he has tossed them in in the past.
While Marr is continuing to tour in support his third solo album, last year's politically inspired Call the Comet, he also teased new music with a brief clip of a video on his Facebook page, promising that a new song will drop Friday morning.
