Marr and James have had history with one another, the latter first supporting The Smiths in 1985 on their ‘Meat Is Murder’ tour. Marr recalled of touring with James via a press release: “We admired them and even did one of their songs in our set. I’ve been a fan of theirs ever since and being out on tour again after 40 years is a really great thing.”

James’ frontman Tim Booth added: “We were met with such generosity and kindness that it changed our DNA. Co-headlining an American tour with the true Gent and genius that is Johnny Marr, is an honor and pleasure. We look forward to making magic together.”

Johnny Marr’s most recent solo album, ‘Fever Dreams Pts 1-4’, arrived in 2022.


Additionally, Marr is set to perform with Suede and Nadine Shah for a huge outdoor headline show in the UK for this summer. Headlined by Suede, the show is due to take place in the grounds of Audley End in Saffron Walden, Essex on Thursday, August 1. You can get your tickets here.
