Johnny Marr and James Announce Joint North American Tour

Johnny Marr and James have announced a joint tour of North America, starting at the end of summer. The coast-to-coast run takes in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto, and more than a dozen other cities. Check out the dates below.

Marr and his fellow Mancunians first toured together in 1985, when James supported the Smiths on the Meat Is Murder tour. In a press release, Marr recalled of that tour, “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’ Tim Booth said of the 1985 shows, “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.”
