Johnny Marr Announces Spring North American Tour

Manchester guitar god Johnny Marr is heading back to North America this spring, promoting his most recent album, 2018’s excellent Call the Comet. Marr’s third solo record features plenty of the sort of upbeat, jangly guitar riffs that Smiths fans first fell in love with over three decades ago, paired with hopeful lyrics about persevering in an age that feels like a dystopian hellscape. Marr’s energetic live performances only augment the much-needed optimism of his last album. Plus, he’s been known to bust out a Smiths song or two.

Spin interviewed Marr last September, ahead of the last North American leg of the Call the Comet tour cycle. Read the interview here, and find Marr’s latest tour dates below.
