Johnny Marr Confirms Nationwide Tour

Legendary guitarist hits the road...

Responsible for redefining the guitar hero in a post-punk world, Johnny Marr is showing no signs of going gentle into the night.

Last year's studio album 'The Messenger' was a spiky return, finding the guitarist lashing out at the establishment. Recruiting a full live band, Johnny Marr is now set to play a massive UK tour.

Opening in Lincoln on October 13th, the tour hits Southend, Bexhill, Wolverhampton and more. Performing at Cardiff's Great Hall on October 18th, Johnny Marr is set to hit Brixton Academy on October 23rd.

Playing a hometown show at Manchester's O2 Apollo, the tour ends in Newcastle on October 28th.

Here's 'Upstarts'.
