Johnny Marr

The former Smiths guitarist will now play shows in London and Ireland, as well as the rest of the UK.

Johnny Marr has added dates to his UK tour this October. Marr will now play London, Belfast, Dublin and Bristol.

Marr previously announced October shows in Manchester, Oxford and more. The legendary guitarist will play a special homecoming show at Manchester's Albert Hall.

Speaking exclusively with Radio X about the show, Marr said "the Albert Hall is a culture addition to our beautiful city, and people who are in to music have really enjoyed going there. The first time I went in, straight away I said "right, we're gonna play here. After the Apollo we'll come back and play here."

"October 7th. I'm gonna play a Playland party!"

Marr is also playing shows in Birmingham, Edinburgh, Newcastle and more. You can see the full tour dates below.
