Johnny Marr has announced UK headline shows for summer 2023.

The tour begins 17 July at Holmfirth’s Picturedrome before taking in Lincoln’s Engine Shed (18), Northampton’s Roadmender (20) and the Tunbridge Wells Assembly Hall (27). The dates will continue through August including performances at Wrexham’s Rockin Chair (9), Frome’s Cheese & Grain (16), the Plymouth SU Main Hall (17) and Middlesbrough Empire (25). All tickets will be on general sale from Friday 28th April at 10:00 BST here.

The headline shows are in addition to a busy summer festival schedule that will see Johnny Marr and his band perform at Pennfest, South Facing Festival, Lakefest, Beautiful Days, Hardwick Festival, Helsinki Festival, Victorious and more, all set to take place through July, August and September 2023.

The 2023 live run is also set to include two huge shows at Edinburgh’s Royal Highland Centre and Belfast’s Vital Festival with The Killers. An extension of Johnny’s 33-date tour across Canada and North America as special guest to the band through Autumn 2022.

Looking ahead, October 2023 will see the publication of Marr’s Guitars, a stunning new photography book presenting the most significant of Marr’s extensive collection of electric and acoustic guitars, revealing through them the evolution of his iconic sound and style of playing. Including personal reflections and insights written by Johnny, and photographs shot by Pat Graham, each guitar is identified with a crucial moment, a specific song or a particular sound, and each embodies a key aspect of Marr’s lifelong passion.
