Johnny Marr today announced plans to tour North America and the U.K. and Ireland this fall in support of his soon-to-be-released third solo album Call the Comet, a trek that will take him across the U.S. and dip into both Canada and Mexico before heading back overseas for a leg that ends in the former Smiths guitarist’s hometown of Manchester.
Tickets for the North American dates go on sale 10 a.m. Eastern / 7 a.m. Pacific on Friday, while the U.K. and Ireland concerts go on sale at 10 a.m. local time Friday.
Marr’s latest album, Call the Comet, is due out June 15, and is available for pre-order now.
