Watch: Johnny Marr joins The Cult onstage in Manchester to perform ‘Rain’

Johnny Marr has been known to invite his lifelong friend Billy Duffy onstage during his solo shows, and a few nights ago in Manchester, The Cult guitarist returned the favor, bringing the ex-Smiths guitarist out in Manchester to play “Rain,” off his band’s 1985 album Love.

Referring to Marr as “my oldest friend,” Duffy tells the crowd at the O2 Apollo Manchester last Thursday night: “An amazing musician, one of my really, really best friends from a million years ago, Mr. Johnny Marr is going to join us for a song. It’s kind of fucking special for me. I hope you really enjoy it.”

The Cult currently has taken its “A Sonic Temple” tour to the U.K., and is playing London tonight.

Check out a couple different fan-shot videos of the team-up below.
