The Messenger is Coming: Johnny Marr On Tour
Johnny Marr Tour
Former guitarist & songwriter for the Smiths Johnny Marr has announced a nine-show set of tour dates for October after playing a few summer festivals including Glastonbury. The Johnny Marr concerts will all take place over a two-week span in the UK. All of this is in support of the Johnny Marr solo debut album The Messenger, released in February. Marr, often regarded as the last great British guitarist, has maintained a busy musical career since the Smiths broke up nearly 30 years ago.
Fans have seen Johnny Marr live as a member of other bands since he & Morrissey went their separate ways in 1987, including Electronic, The The, Modest Mouse, and The Cribs. He also collaborated with members of Pearl Jam and Radiohead for 7 Worlds Collide, which toured in the winter of 2008-2009 and released some songs to raise money for charity. One more recent example of Marr’s work is the score for the popular film Inception. Johnny Marr has had a varied and prolific discography so far; it’ll be interesting to see how his solo album and The Messenger Tour help give direction to the next chapter of his career.
