Johnny Marr returning to the U.S. for 18-date fall tour in support of ‘The Messenger’

Johnny Marr

Former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr will follow up his lengthy spring U.S. tour with a second round of American dates late this fall in support of his new solo album The Messenger, playing 18 shows this October and November — including a slot at the Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, Texas, alongside Television, Slayer and the Descendants.

The return to America, which Marr announced late Friday, follows a summer of European festival dates and an October tour of the U.K. The trek opens in Anaheim, Calif., on Halloween and wraps up two days before Thanksgiving in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., hitting, in between, a number of smaller markets not included on his spring tour (see full dates below). Ticket information is expected early next week.

Marr released The Messenger in February and toured the U.S. in April and early May around his appearances at the Coachella festival — a trek that included two dates with New Order and, in New York, an onstage reunion with former Smiths bandmate Andy Rourke.
