Johnny Marr 2018 Tour

Praise for Johnny Marr’s live show:

 His gruffer, but by no means unrefined, vocals lend fresh flavour to the Smiths tracks he drops intermittently into the set; his fired-up “Bigmouth”, stabbed through with trademark arpeggios, seems designed to remind us that the Smiths were as much gobby post-punk rabble as they were foppish ego cult, while “The Headmaster Ritual” could be “Daytripper”-era Beatles with switchblades up their blazer sleeves.4 Stars - The Guardian

 Marr (was) showcasing his great new album which somehow manages to combine those perfect Marr-lodies with a whiff of early eighties post-punk melancholy but also nods to that patented chiming guitar sound that he trademarked in the Smiths. The new album is his finest solo offering yet and the gig was a celebration of this and his own back pages...a perfect example of how seamlessly it all fits together into a continuous career whole in a sweatshod celebration of a decades long quest of guitar pop brilliance.” - Louder Than War

“...the songs themselves sounded urgent and engaged. Guitar solos emerged with power and clarity within songs.” - The Financial Times
