 Add to favorites

Johnny Marr has announced a new series of 2018 UK and Ireland tour dates.

The Manchester icon and former Smiths guitarist is set to release his latest solo album, ‘Call The Comet‘, on June 15.

Following a run of intimate shows including London’s Islington Assembly Hall and The Brudenell in Leeds, Marr will return to bigger stages in November. The new tour will kick off in Belfast on November 1, before visiting a further 12 cities. It will conclude in the legendary musician’s hometown of Manchester on November 18.

Johnny Marr will play:

Belfast, Ulster Hall (November 1) Dublin, National Stadium (2) Norwich, UEA (4) Birmingham, O2 Institute (5) Bath, Forum (6) Cardiff, Great Hall (8) Brighton, Dome (9) London, Roundhouse (11) Sheffield, O2 Academy (13) Newcastle, O2 Academy (14) Glasgow, Barrowlands (15) Liverpool, O2 Academy (17) Manchester, O2 Apollo (18)

Tickets for the shows will go on sale on Friday (June 1) and will be available for purchase here.

In a press release, Marr called ‘Call The Comet’ his “own magic realism.” “It’s set in the not-too-distant future and is mostly concerned with the idea of an alternative society,” he said. “The characters in the songs are searching for a new idealism, although there are some personal songs in there too. It’s something that people like me can relate to.”

Speaking to NME for a track-by-track run-through of the new record, the musician said ‘Call The Comet’ was inspired by reading “a lot of interesting stuff from the early 20th Century.” “It’s not quite utopian, but it’s imagining a new kind of society,” he added. “That’s how I felt going into it at the start of 2016.”
