Third time’s the charm? One-half of The Smiths reunited on stage Sunday for the third time in less than a year, as bassist Andy Rourke joined Johnny Marr toward the end of his Lollapalooza Brazil set to perform their former band’s classic “How Soon Is Now?”
The on-stage reunion comes after Rourke and Marr, friends since childhood, appeared together at Marr’s concerts in New York last May and November, playing “How Soon Is Now?” together at both shows, and, at the latter gig, another Smiths classic, “Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want.”
Above, you can see the photo Marr shared of the on-stage reunion, and below we’ve got fan-shot video from a couple different sources.

It’s good, it’s really good, but it’s just not the same without Morrisey’s haunting voice.
